A Little bit of History - Hingham's Association With Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was America's 16th president and famous for his opposition to slavery which led of course to the American civil war. But it was from here in Hingham, Norfolk, UK that Abraham Lincoln's ancestor Samuel Lincoln lived and in 1637 sailed for a new life in the New World joining his brother Thomas in Bare Cove, Massachusetts, later renamed Hingham.
Hingham, Norfolk, UK is proud of its association with the Lincoln family and many references to it can be found within the town.
There is a bust of President Abraham Lincoln in our local church of St Andrews here in Hingham, Norfolk, England. It was unveiled by the American Ambassador John W Davis in 1919.
