Abraham Eve was likely to be either an emigre from (1) Bermuda or alternatively a (2) loyalist from Georgia . After his marriage to Abraham Adderley's daughter he together with his father-in-law obtained a grant of 740 acres on Long Island in the names of Abraham Eve and Abraham Adderley. The grant deed describes and shows the location of the property. The deed was one of several given to loyalists in 1788 after their eviction after the American Revolution.

(1) If from Bermuda he is probably the son, named Abraham Adderley Eve born 2 Sep 1764, child of Abraham Eve, mariner, (died Nov 1802 in Brackish Pond, Bermuda) and Martha Adderley (died Apr 1794 in Brackish Pond, Bermuda) married 3 May 1759 in Bermuda. It seems likely that he married a cousin with the same name as his mother.

(2) Abraham could have been from the family of Oswell Eve and his sons William and Joseph Eve. Joseph Eve was an engineer and architect who invented a wind powered cotton gin and designed St. Matthews Church in Nassau.

By virtue of the house architecture and the wording in Abraham Adderley's will, the ruins of a two story home in Burnt Ground, Long Island adjacent to a church was probably where the Eve's residence until abandoning their plantation. The walls, steps, chimney and some coloration in 1999 were still visible.
