Family History Mystery – Can You Help?

Are you familiar with old (17th century) Dutch, or old English place names? If the answer to either question is yes, please pop over to this thread on the Ancestry message boards and share your wisdom about the meaning of the sentence “van Absin in Engelt”. It appears to mean ‘from Absin in England’. If that is true, where on earth was/is Absin? Or maybe it means something else.
