His w. d. 20 Nov. 1685; and he d. 13 Oct. 1687, aged 70. Tradit. says that he came to Boston, 1635, from Hull, Yorksh. but perhaps this may in part be confus. with deriv. of Ralph, of wh. he may have been br. His d. Hannah m. 27 Feb. 1677, David Bull; Mary m. 2 May 1676, Samuel Bates; and Sarah m. Sept. 1686, Joseph Pratt, as his sec. w. ROBERT, Dover, 1663, by w.

He was s. of Edward the first, had Samuel, b. 2 Mar. 1696; and--also, aft. Simon, ins. 14 Nov. 1700, hav. had Simon. THOMAS, Saybrook 1651, rep. May 1652 and Oct. 1654, unless this be mistak. for Robert, an opin. wh. may be suppos. to have influenc. the mak. of Index to Trumbull's Col. Rec. I. since it does not include the pages, where the name of Thomas, in the text, appears at the Gen. Ct. as deput. and does include those where Robert's name appears at the Ct. in Sept. 1652 and Sept. 1654. Without much confidence in the conject. I incline to think Thomas entit. to his seat, tho. no more is heard of him. THOMAS, Charlestown, m. 8 Sept. 1675, Sarah Mirick, serv. short time in Turner's comp. as a soldier, Mar. 1676, had Sarah; Elizabeth both bapt. 22 Aug. 1680; Mercy, 22 May 1681; Thomas, 22 Apr. 1683; and posthum. d.

John, William, Samuel, Jeremiah, Joseph, Sarah, and Rebecca; but little can be learn. as to any of the s. and of the ds. nothing. It is said that Jeremiah was b. 1677; and we kn. that he, with William and Samuel, resid. at N. L. that Joseph went to Norwich, and that John, the oldest, was liv. at Colchester in May 1748, when it was affirm. "he will be 95 yrs. old next Nov." so that it would be hazardous to deny, that he was b. 1603. In 1834 Farmer found the gr. at Yale fourteen, at Harv. and Dart. four ea. and two at other N. E. coll.

CHAPPELL, CALEB, Lebanon, was youngest s. of George; and Sedgwick's Hist. of Sharon says, that the name in that town is deriv. from him. GEORGE, Wethersfield, came in the Christian 1635, aged 20, from London, and two yrs. later is found apprent. to learn the trade of carpenter with Francis Stiles of Windsor, wh. had come in the same ship, and, perhaps, paid for his transporta. Fifteen yr.s. after he rem. to New London with w. Margery and ch. Mary; Rachel; John; and George, b. 5 Mar. 1654; and there had Elizabeth 30 Aug. 1656; Esther, 15 Apr. 1662; Sarah, 14 Feb. 1666; Nathaniel, 21 May 1668; and Caleb, 7 Oct. 1671. He d. 1709, in his will speaks of aged w. Margery, commit. to s. Caleb, and gr.s. Comfort; but wh. was f. of this Comfort is not told. Mary m. 19 Jan. 1665, John Daniels; Rachel m. a. 1667, Thomas Crocker. JOHN, eldest s. of the preced. was, perhaps, a soldier in Turner's comp. 1676, may have been of Lyme 1678, and certain. was of Flushing, L. I. 1704. NATHANIEL, Boston 1634, was in the employm. I of Atherton Hough, adm. freem. 22 May 1639. He may have been br. I of George. WILLIAM, New London 1659, perhaps br. of George, by w. Christian had Mary, b. Feb. 1669; John, 28 Feb. 1672; two nam.

CHARD, HUGH, Boston 1694, s. of William, was not a householder in 1695, perhaps rem. SAMUEL, Weymouth, br. of the preced. by w. Mary had Mary, b. 28 Nov. 1698, and perhaps others. THOMAS, Boston, s. of William, prob. eldest, had serv. as a soldier, in Philip's war, of Turner's comp. at Hadley 1676, but liv. at B. 1678, and was freem. 1680 or 1, enjoy. the advantage of being count. as of the first ch. in the former yr. and of the sec. ch. next yr. See Geneal. Reg. III. 245 and 6. WILLIAM, Weymouth, freem. 1654, had first w. Grace, wh. d. at W. 22 Jan. 1656; and he m. 27 Nov. 1656, Elizabeth d. of Matthew Pratt, had Thomas, b. 27 or 29 Sept. 1657; Caleb, 19 Oct. 1660; Mary, 8 Apr. 1663; Samuel, 1 Oct. 1666; Joanna, 17 Aug. 1667; Patience, 21 Apr. 1671; and Hugh, 4 Jan. 1675.

CHASMORE, or CHASMER, RICHARD, Pawtuxet 1656, has much claim to distinct. only from the arrest by warrant to the marshal-gen. or high sheriff of Mass. in that region usurp. jurisdict. His crime prob. was some crookedness in relig. or concur. with the Gortonists, his neighb. on the opposite side of the riv. but the officer took his prison. to lodge at Providence, on his way to Boston, thus furnish. opportun. for rescue by form of law under civil governm. of Providence. Perhaps this was concerted plan of Gov. Endicott, to affront the adjoin. humble Col. by exercise of this claim, and to render nugatory, at the same time, the effect of his own precept. See perfect statem. of the case in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 293 and 362.
