INTBODUOTION. 



The Chute family in America is not a record of one who " came over in 
le Mayflower and fought in the battle of Bunker Hill," nor the account of 
three brothers" that came over, but rather the history and genealogy of 
1 humble school, master, who came over early to Massachusetts, whose 
ascendants emigrated to Maine an<1 Nova Scotia, and latterly to the South 
id to the far West. 

As every author assumes his book needed, the author of this book 
^sumes ; first, that it is needed to show the origin of the family name ; 
jcond, to show the lines and lineages ; third, to show where the different 
.milies branch off; fourth, to show the different generations and degrees of 
(lationship ; fifth to settle disputes that arise concerning relationships ; and 
xth, CO preserve the records from the *' tooth of Time and rasure of obliv- 



n. 



The name Chute is of Norman French origin, and means a descent, as 
3wn a slope, a sluice, or down from an elevation as by a parachute. By 
»me the name is said to be derived from the name '* Jutes." 

One author says that Baron Edouard LeChute co mmanded a company 
• regiment of French troops in the battle of Hastings, Oct. 14, 1066, which 
ictory put William the Conqueror on the throne of England, from whom, 
edition says, the whole family, bearing the name, have descended. The 
une is among the first surnames used in England. 

But our authentic history commences with Alexander Chute, lord of 
le manor of Taunton, Somersetshire, England, who died in 1268. 

His Coat op Abmb was: Ou, three swords, barwise,* points to the 
3Zter, ar. pommels and hilts or, within an orle of mullets of the third ; on a 
mton, per fesse, ar. and vert, a lion of England. 

Crest : A gauntlet ppr. holding a broken sword ar. pommel and hilt or. 

Motto: Fortune de Guerre. (Fortune of VVar.) 

Philip Chute, of Appledore, standard bearer to Henry VIII, obtained 
1 recompense for his gallant services at the seige of Bologne, in 1544, an 
igmentation to his armorial bearings, gu. sem^ of mullets or three swords 

*The middle sword should encounter the other two, by being turned eontrawlse.

In 1827 another addition was made for Wiggett-Chute : Arms ; quar- 
terly, 1st and 4th Chute, gu. three swords barwise, the points toward the

ester, as a reward for so doing. He was elected treasurer of the Middle 
Temple in 1655; Knight of the Shire for Middlesex 1656 and 1658; and upon 
the assembling of Parliament under Richard Cromwell, Jan. 29, 1659, he was 
unanimously chosen speaker of the House of Commons. The French ambas- 
sador, M. de Bordeaux, wrote home in February, that Parliament elected 
its speaker who is one of the most celebrated lawyers in the nation, and there

being in the House of Commons, supported John Chute^s brother Francis, as 
a candidate for Parliament. In 1742, Walpole was introduced to John's 
other brother, Anthony, and expressed satisfaction at having seen and got 
acquainted with the three. He described John's temperance habits Aug. 20, 
1743, as commendable and better than his Norfolk neighbors. Gray admired 
John the most of anybody, and held correspondence with him for more than

It is necessary here to explain that Lionel Chute, the first to Amer- 
ica, brought over with him a parchment roll, containing the Chute 
lineage and pedigree from Alexander ^ to about 1700, which was de- 
ciphered by Dean Dudley and John W. Deane, and published in the 
Gen. Reg. of 1859; but by age and dampness (being in Lionel's chest, 
see his will), much of it was very imperfect, so we have followed more 
closely Wm. Berry's Berkskire and Hampshire Pedigrees. This same 
roll was copied by Amelia (Parish) Perkins, page 23, and so two or 
three persons in the family have copies of it. 

The first instance of the spelling Chewte we find in Challoner W. 
Chute's History of the Vyne, 1888, when Challoner Chute was admit- 
ted student of the Middle Temple, in 1613, as Caroli Chewte. But 
like many other names in America, it has several spellings. 

The original Chute Arms have been augmented or empaled with the 
names of Britton, Sturton, Chichester, Barkley, Lucas, Culpepper, and 
Baker. The following items are taken from various books published 
iu London.

OP CHUTES IN AMERICA. NOT OP THE MAIN FAMILY. 

Noah Chute is reported of in New Jersey about 1660-70. 
Another family is in Athens Co., Ohio. Andrew J. Chute was in 
the Slst O. V. I., in Sherman's army. 

Another family is in Cumberland Co., Me. We well remember two 
brothers. Freedom and James, in Casco, south of Naples, in 1857. 
They were two respectable farmers, out of a family of thirteen children 
of Moses and Ruth (Mosher) Chute ; Moses was the son of George and 
Olive (^Brown) Chute ; and George was a son of Wm. Shute who m. 
Hannah Carter in Scarboro 1751. It appears that about the time of 
the American war, they changed the name from Shute to Chute. 

In the Salem Register of October 1806, is recorded the marriage of 

Jeremiah M. Chute to Betsy Gavet, farther than this we know nothing. 

Besides these are some Chutes from Ireland. James Henry is one 

in South Boston. John J., is one in Neponset, south of Boston. Saw 

one in New York city in 1880. Another in Chicago in 1870. John 

Chute was in Rochester, Minn., time of the late war. 

Robert and Elizabeth (Higgins) Chute, live in Cleveland, O. They 
came over fom Ireland to Canada in 1862, lived in Strathroy, Middle- 
sex Co., two years, thence to Pennsylvania, and then to Cleveland, 
Ohio. He was the son of Isaac and Margaret (Manny) Chute, of 
Cork, who was the son of Thomas Chute of Tralee, 1770. 

Mr. James Chute lives in Utica, N. Y., son of Harry and Nellie 
(Marphy) Chute, of Grange, Meade Co., Ireland. Harry's children 
vere James, Mary, Bridget, Katharine and Michael. Harry's parents 
were Patrick Chute and Katie Monohan, and they had Thomas, John, 
Patrick, Harry and Mary. 

Among the British soldiers in America, in the days of George II, 
was Lieut. Eusebius Chute of the 9th regiment, commission dated 
July 14, 1759. 

Peter Chute, injured by a disaster on the cars of the N. Y. & N. E. 
R. R., the first of September 1893, died at Hartford, Ct., worth

In seeking the information for making up the volume a few have 
treated the work with contempt, thus proving that 

** Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise." 

— Thomas Gray, 1716-1771, 

Another class were afraid of investigation lest they might find some 
of low repute, illustrating the sentiment 

" Be ignorance thy choice where knowledge leads to woe." 

— James BeattiCy 1735-180S. 

A third class puflfed up with egotism and arrogance have proved that 

" By ignorance is pride increased 
Those most assume who know the least.** 

— John Gay, 1688-1732. 



GENEALOGIES Or THE CHUTE FAMILY. 19 

But while these three classes together make a very small minority, 
we are proud to say that the masses in general are interested in learn- 
ing and knowing their origins and history ; and we venture the sta.te - 
ment that in 1850 not more than 100 volumes of genealogy were pub - 
lished while now there are 2000. And while we express thanks to 
many for their assistance and patronage, we will say right here that 
any persons, whose families we have sketched, may use these sketches 
as foundations to build upon, should they conclude to write up their 
full family histories.

OONCBRNINQ THE ARRANGEMENT OP THE GENEALOGY. 



The Roman numerals tell the number in the generation, and the 
igures right after tell the number of families thus far traced. See page 
27. VI, 10, means the sixth generation, and the tenth family thus far 
lisposed of. The numbers on the left-hand margin are taken up and 
!kttended to in their order farther on ; so you find 10 on page 20 
sittended to on page 27. Where a daughter married one of the same 
aame, and had a family, a reference is made to the husband's number, 
eus in two instances on page 32. The same references are in the allied 
Families, and generally are to be found in the " Chute " part of the 
book. 

When surnames are referred to, they speak for themselves. 

The following abbreviations have been used : — 

a. for aged, 
ab. for about. 

b. for bom. 

da. for daughter, 
d. for died, 
d. y. for died young, 
d. s. p. for died without issue. 
D. C. for Dartmouth College, 
m. for married. 

H. C. or H. U., Harvard College, Harvard University. 
w. for wife or widow. 

In the state or province whei*e the parents lived or settled the children are sup- 
posed to have settled also, unless otherwise stated.

1. Mysterious are the ways of God, 

And past our comprehension, 
Too much we live on unconcerned 

Without an apprehension. 
When suddenly a scene appears 

Upon the stage of action 
That startles all our grief and fears 

And causes great distraction. 

2. A christian man was Samuel Chute 

And going o'er the river 
The boat upset and he was drowned 

None coming to deliver. 
His aim to hear the gospel sound 

From Thomas Handley Chipman, 
But oh ! alas ! he was not spared 

To hear the Heavenly Footman. 

3. His wife and children did lament 

The loss of a dear father, 
But he had passed the bounds of time 

Into the great hereafter : 
His children all did follow him, 

So far as is recorded, 

In paths of virtue, truth and grace 

And so will be rewarded.

ON THE DEATH OF NELSON CHUTE. 

There was a man of good repute 
Known far and wide as Nelson Chute; 
His home was in Bear River town, 
A place quite famous for renown. 
For labor, lionor, justice, trut^i. 
He ever was a noted youth ; 
And as a merchant he did gain 
Some wealth by trading on the main. 

2. 

So, on the Bay of Fundy, he 
Had started for St. John, N. B. 
On board tlie Robert luden grand 
And James T. Hinxman in command. 
When near St. John a strong breeze blew 
That culled up all the vessel's crew; 
When by the gybing of main boom. 
Poor Nelson found a watery tomb. 

3. 

His wife for him did sad lament. 

Because her lieart was sorely rent, 

But he had gone to his reward 

T*appear before his blessed Lord; 

And there, where all things are arranged 

(For God's decrees cannot be changed). 

We hope to see him in that land 

With all the blest at God's right hand.

:3own the Mississippi river, to La Crosse, Wis., then by cars to Chicago, 
Louisville, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn., then marched (March 23), via. 
Murfreesboro, Shelbyville, and Tallahoma to Stevenson, Ala., and 
thence to Chattanooga by rail. 

After two days there they marched across the country eighteen miles 
l^camped one night near the Chickamauga battle-ground), to Ringgold, 
North Georgia, the middle of April. There they rested, drilled and 
recruited three weeks, and started out on the great campaign under 
Oenerals Sherman, Thomas, McPherson, Howard, Palmer, Logan, 
Dodge, Blair, Slocomb, acnd others. May 7, about 100,000 strong, and 
uras with the army in their marches, countermarches and bivouacks, to

Srig., 3d Div., 14th army corps. After three weeks in and near Savan- 
nah, they marched up the Savannah river twenty-five or thirty miles, 
crossed over in Jan. 1865, on pontoon bridges into South Carolina, and 
went through some cold, wet and muddy tramps, crossing the Saluda, 
Wateree, Great Pedee, Cape Fear and other rivers on pontoon bridges, 
and arrived at Goldsboro, N. C, the last of March. Being in the left 
wing of Sherman's army they encountered the rebel, Gen. Wheeler's,

the surrender of Gen. Lee to Gen. Grant; and the dreadful news of the 
death of President Lincoln ! About the twentieth of April, they marched

Ohio river, calling at Cincinnatti, to Louisville, Ky., and there about 
three miles out went into camp till July 11 ; then - by railroad to 
Chicago, 111., and LaCrosse, Wis., and steamboat to St. Paul ; they were 
returned home, and mustered out at Fort Snelling the twenty-first. Then 
Mr. Chute returned to his home near Blue Earth City, and there '^ re- 
constructed " somewhat, but the severe winters rather ^^ scared him 
out," so he sold out in 1869, and in 1870 drove a team and moved 
across Iowa to Maysville, De Ealb Co., Mo., and next year to Island 
City, Gentry Co., then to Albany, the county seat. In 1872 moved to 
Guilford, Nodaway Co., and that summer drove across the Missouri 
river into Kansas; went far as Topeka, and returned again into 
Missouri, bought a lot, built aud settled in Bolckow, Andrew Co. 
During his sojourn there of five winters he taught about thirty siugiog 
classes in five counties, DeKalb, Gentry, Nodaway, Andrew aud Clin- 
ton. But the grasshoppers came over so thick from Kansas in 1874, 
threatening a famine, that he sold out there in the spring of 1875, and 
returned to St. Thomas, Ont., and there for four winters taught sing- 
ing in Elgin, Middlesex and Lambton counties.

four hundred hymn books. 

While on a visit to Nova Scotia in 1855, he commenced teaching 
singing in the good old American Vocalist, and there commenced

the fall went down the Erie Canal to New York, thence to Boston, 
thence to Portland, Me., and forty miles north of there in Otisfield, in

he traveled forty miles east across the country to Augusta, visiting 
friends and relations ; then via Waterville and Bangor, took cars to 
Woodstock, N. B., visiting and gathering records. Then after visiting 
friends at Eel river, he went down the St. John river on a i'aft to near 
Frederickton, and went up the Keswick river to the north, above 
Zealand Station and visited friends in York Co., then came down to 
Fredericton, and took a steamer to St. John, where he stopped four 
nights making calls and seeking out friends and relations. On May 
12, he crosSed the Bay of Fundy, on the steamer *' Secret," to Digby, 
N. S., and in that province for nearly four months he traveled in four 
counties, from Weymouth, Digby Co., through Annapolis Co., to Kent- 
yille. Kings Co., and over to Caledonia, Queens Co., hunting the " lost 
tribes " of the family connection. He started at Bear River Sept. 7, 
on the schooner " Florence Christine," Capt. Norman W. Chute, wood 
and timber laden, and sailed to Boston ; took steamer thence to Port- 
land, Me., and traveled fifty miles north to Snow's Fall's, Oxford Co.,

ThinkiDg more quickly to raise his share, 

Than on the farm, he went ofif West 
To the land of gold, and while out there 

He worked in mines and did his best 

2. 

But overworked his health gave way, 

Doctors prescribed a change of place 
And rest, but our informants say 

He delayed too long, his careworn face 
He turned at last to a milder clime, 

Ajid on the way, was found one morn 
In death^s embrace. O I brother mine! 

To think you died so all forlorn! 

3. 

^Tis sad to part with those we love, 

And know theyUl no more greet us here. 
But if with Christ they reign above. 

We feel our loss much less severe. 
Dear brother Aaron is now at rest, 

His toils on earth are fully done. 
In heaven rejoicing with the blest, 

HeUl wear the crown that here he won.

GENEALOGIES OP THE CHUTE FAMILY. 137 

DEATH OF JOHN B. GOUGH (1817-1886.) 

1. 

Our ranks again are broken, a warrior has fled, 
From all his earthly troubles, he* a numbered with the dead; 
But when his sleep is ended, and he^s ransomed from the grave, 
He then shall meet the army, he tried on earth to save. 

2. 

I know you all would llj^e it, to know whnt was his name, 
'Tis John B. Gough the warrior, for you have heard the same; 
When but a boy in sorrow, he struggled hard for life. 
And then got married early and took a loving wife. 

3. 

But when the ruby cup passed, he couldn^t well refrain. 
His wife tried to prevent him, but found 'twas all in vain; 
But when death came and took her, who was to him so dear, 
Then he began to realize, his fearful, wild career. 

4. 

He signed the temperance pledge then, and there began to preach. 
And warn poor drunkards soundly, their doom to them did teach; 
And when the church was crowded, %e would a story tell. 
How he escaped the monster which always pleased them well. 

5. 

But his career is ended, he lies beneath the sod. 
And freed from all earth's trials, his soul is with his God; 
But when the last, loud trumpet, shall bid the sleeper rise. 
We then shall see the warrior, with unbeclouded eyes.

CLOSING CHAPTERS ON THE CHUTE FAMILY. 

I. On the Obiginal Fibst Family Tebminating in the Sec- 
ond OB Middle Bbangh. 

Ipswich, Mass., was first settled by English emigrants in 1633. But 
a tradition seems to say that the Mayflower intended to settle there, 
but went on to Plymouth, here is the first verse of a poem of six verses 
by James Appleton Morgan. 

I love to think of old Ipswich towD, 

Old Ipswich town in the East countree ; 
Whence on the tide you can float down 

Thro' long salt grass to the wailing sea. 
Where the Mayflower drifted off the bar, 

Sea- worn and weary long years ago. 
And dared not enter, but sailed away 

Till she landed her boats in Plymouth Bay. 

Abram Hammatt Esq., (1780-1856), of Ipswich, in his " Hammatt 
papers," says : It appears from our records " that there was a grammar 
school set up in Ipswich in ye year 1636," three years after John Win- 
tbrop, the younger with his twelve companions commenced a settlement 
in this place. It was kept by Lionel Chute, who died in 1645. 

But the Chute family all^seem to have left Ipswich before 1700, and 
settled in Rowley and Newbury. In the burying yard by the Byfield 
meeting-house, used to stand a dark stone with the following inscrip- 
tions upon it : 



Sacred to the memory of Capt. Daniel 
Chute who died Jan. 6, 1S06, in the Sdd 
year of his aee, having been a respectable 
member of uie church of Christ sixty- 
three years. 



Mrs. Hannah Chute, relict of Capt 

th< 



Daniel Chute, died April 28, 1812, in the 
th year of her ase. She was distin- 
lished for sound judf^ement, active, 



00th year of her ace. She was distin- 
guished for sound judgem 
benevolent and sincere piety. 



Sacred also to the memory of Dea. 
James Chute, who died Jan. 31, 1769, in 
the ^d year of his age. 



And of Mary Chute his consort, who 
died Aug. 12, 1760. Aged 67. 



Deacon Chute was the son of Mr. James Chute, who in 1681, com- 
menced a settlement a few rods west of this spot. He was a grand- 
son of Lionel Chute the first of the family in Massachusetts. 



188 GENEALOGIES OP THE CHUTE FAMILY. 

The old Chute house — a mile north of the Byfield meeting-hoose 
— now owned by James Chute Peabody, which he inherited from his 
aunt, Sophia Chute, granddaughter of Capt. Daniel Chute, was built 
by Capt. Daniel Chute, 1780, over the cellar of a garrison house, built 
by his grandfather a century before, and has always been in the family. 

The Chute place, a few rods west of the Byfield meeting-house, went 
from Capt. Daniel Chute to his son Dea. James ; thence to his son 
Richard, who sold it to Shubael Dummer, who left it to his son David, 
who sold it to Joseph Strauss, a Jewish priest of Boston, who still 
owns it, although in New York. The buildings of the latter place are 
all gone, and three old cellars and two old wells remain as relics of the 
once famous old house. 



II. Of the Oldest, or New Hampshibb and Nova Scotia 

Branch. 

Rev. Henry AUine, son of William and Rebecca Alline, was born in 
Newport, R. I., June 14, 1748 ; taken to Nova Scotia with his parents 
in 1756, and lived in Falmouth, Hants Co. From the time of settle- 
ment in Nova Scotia, he was impressed with the importance of being 
a christian, and these impressions and convictions finally led to Ins 
conversion in March, 1775. He immediately professed a call to preach 
the gospel, and being encouraged, he exercised his gifts and talents 
with great success ; and being in advance of many others in that day, 
although crude in some things, he was called a New Light, and wis 
ordained to the gospel ministry, as a Congregationalist, in a large bam 
at Falmouth, in 1779 ; and traveled extensively (principally on horse- 
back), up and down the Annapolis valley, even to Yarmouth, and other 
partH of Nova Scotia, in New Brunswick and in Maine ; and finally 
died at the house of Rev. David McClure (1748-1820), Northampton, 
N. H., Feb. 2, 1784; in his thirty-sixth year. Many of the grandpar- 
ents of the old folks, now living, were converts of his, and joined the 
Baptist churches, then organizing in those provinces. 

Besides being the instrument in God's hand Af leading handreds, if 
not thousands, to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, he wrote about four 
hundred hymns which were published about 1790, a third edition was 



GENBALOGIES OF THE CHUTE FAMILY. 189 

printed at Dover, N. H., 1797. They were used quite extensively 
among the New Lights and Free Baptists ; but the only hymn among 
them now in use, we believe is the one commencing 

" Amazing sight the Savior stands, 

And knocks at every door. 
Ten thousand blessings in his hands, 

To satisfy the poor." 

Thomas Chute,^ heard the Rev. Mr. AUine about 1780, from the 
text **• And it shall come to pass in that day that the great trumpet 
shall be blown and they shall come that are ready to perish in the land 
of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and they shall wor- 
ship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem," Isaiah 28 : 13 ; and it 
led to his conversion, and he was baptized, if we mistake not, by Rev. 
Thomas Handley Chipman, in the Annapolis Rivei:, near Bridgetown ; 
and probably his older brothers, Samuel and John (perhaps their 
parents too), were converted and added to the church about the same 
time. Bear, moose, foxes and other game, besides Indians, were quite 
plentiful in Nova Scotia in^those days. 

This same Dea. Thomas Chute on Mar. 6, 1808, at Bear River, went 
ont in the morning and found a bear track, so he and sons, Andrew 
and Abel — perhaps Calvin and John — with a couple of dogs, went 
up back of the barn into a swamp, and found a tree partly blown 
over, so there was a large hollow under the roots. Abel cut a stick 
and poked down through a hole in the top, and exclaimed ^' It is soft 
as a bag of wool." At that the old bear stuck her nose out under the 
roots looking ^^ savage as a meat ax," when the old gent let go an 
ounce musket ball into her, at which she sank down with a groan, and 
a cub crawled up on her back ; this was picked up with the hand and 
taken care of. They got out the dead bear, dressed it, sold the meat 
at the garrison in Annapolis for six pence a pound ; kept the cub till 
in the summer it got so mischievous they sold it too. For forty to 
fifiy years afterwards the sons would say when the sixth of March 
came around, '^ this is the day we got the old bear out of the den." 

In 1811 the brothers, Benjamin and Thomas, took a notion to go to 
Upper Canada (^called Canada West, in 1849, and Ontario in 1867), 
and they went as far as Black Rock, below Buffalo, so they saw the

" promised land" across the Niagara River, whea Uncle Benjamin was 
taken sick and they returned. 

In 1841, when Andrew Chute sold out atTBear River to go to Canada, 
some opposed and some ridiculed him. His father-in-law, Eleazer 

« 

Woodworth, composed a little poem commencing 

Andrew Chute, the old goat. 
Put all his property afloat 

But Deacon Chute always rejoiced that he sold out in Nova Scotia 
— said there was a providence in it — an(f went to a country where 
there was more room and privileges to grow up with the growth of the 
country in education, wealth and usefulness. 

On his seventieth birthday, Sept. 15, 1859, Deacon Chute had a large 
party at his house, which included, besides the members of his own 
family, Mrs. Jane Chute, Mrs. Nellie McConnell, Dea. R. Hankinson 
and wife, Dea. B. J. Timpany and wife, Charles Northrup and some 
neighbors. This was his last home party. Deacon Chute composed a 
poem or two in early life, but we believe they are lost. We here 
insert, however, a favorite poem of his, in ^tieroic verse, to which he 
composed a tune. 

1. 

Of all the fools on earth by heaven accursed. 
The drunkard should be reckoned with the worst; 

No beast that walks the plain or bird that flies, 
Does act so base a part or so unwise. 

2. 

The dull, the slow, the poor despised ass. 

In wisdom does the drunkard far surpass; 
He drinks no more when nature's satisfied, 

But leaves the stream along the vale to glide. 

3. 

But drunkards of inferior sense will drink. 

Till they can scarcely walk or talk or think; 
What crime will not a drunkard then commit. 

When in this vile intoxicated flt. 

4. 

Satan can rule him with easy sway. 

And turn him as he pleases in his way ; 
His health, his wealth, his character and time, 

Are all destroyed by this atrocious crime. 



GENEALOGIES OP THE CHUTE FAMILY. 191 

5. 

We censure thieves who into houses creep, 

To rob their neighbors while they ^re asleep; 
To purchase poison in the flowing bowl. 

Which brings them all to want and damns the soul. 

6. 

Stay, sinner, stay before it is too late, 

Reflect with horror on thine awful state ; 
The blood of Christ will cleanse your sins away, 

O seek his mercy, seek without delay. 

About fourteen years after his father's death, his son Freeman, to 
whom was willed the old homestead, moved away the white house, 
built by Capt. John Mclntyre in 1841, and built a brick house in its 
place ; and as it was finished at the time his wife was forty years old, 
his brothers, sisters, cousins and neighbors, got up a ^' surprise party,'' 
June 5, 1877, and assembled between forty and fifty to do them honor. 
As he was on the road to work, being path-master that year, the com- 
pany sent out a ^' corporal's guard," captured him and took him in. 
At that party J. M. Chute read Will M. Carleton's " Out of the Old 
House into the New," with variations, which were very appropriate. 

As the centennial of his father's birthday drew near. Freeman con- 
cluded to have a celebration at his place on the occasion ; so as the 
fifteenth of September was Sunday he invited his friends and kindred 
from fiar and near, and they assembled on Saturday, Sept. 14, 1889, to 
the number of sixty-six named Chute, twenty named McConnell and 
forty-seven others, nearly all related, and they carried out the follow- 
ing program : Assembled at 10 a. m., took dinner under the cherry trees 
in front of the house ; Mr. £. S. Phillips of Aylmer, with his camera took

III. Of THE Maine or Third Branch: 

Dea. Thomas Chute, who went from Massachusetts to Maine, 1737, 
was certainly a man of ambition, energy, faith and perseverance, as the 
records of Boston, Marblehead and Salem, Mass., and those of Portland 
and Windham, Me., plainly show. A part of his papers and personal 
effects descended through his grandson Col. Josiah of the Revolution, to 
his son George W., of Windham ; while another part descended through 
Col. Thomas, and Col. Francis to John W., of Otisfield. At the 
house of the late John H., is a good size pine board chest with ^^ T. C. 
1712/' on the inside of the cover, that he had in Boston, the year he 
manied Mary Curtis. At this same John H.'s, is a painting purporting 
to be the Chute Coat of Arms, but it is pronounced by experts a fraud. 

After the Revolution, a good sized porcelain pitcher (probably made 
in Philadelphia), with blue flowers on the side and the name '^ Mary 
Chute," also in blue, was presented to Mary, wife of Josiah Chute, 
which descended to the daughter Mary Noyes Abbot and from her to 
Mary Ann Sanborn. 

But there is a bad thing in Windham. The church records say that 
Dea. Tho. Chute died in 1771 ; Thomas L. Smith (1797-1881), deliv- 
ered a Centennial address in 1835 ; enlarged since and called the His- 
tory of Windham, in which he says that Thomas Chute was born in 
England, 1690. Then George W. Chute, in view of approaching disso- 
lution, appointed Wm. Goold, Esq., his executor, and ordered two 
white marble monuments to be erected about fifteen feet high, in the 
family burying ground, to cost .$1,000, with inscriptions of four gener- 
ations, Thomas, Curtis, Col. Josiah and George W., upon them, in 
which not only the error of the death of Thos. Chute in 1770 is copied, 
but his birth — worse than Mr. Smith — ^is stated as in London, England, 
1690. At the same time papers were in the house of George W. Chute 
explaining and telling better, but only needing and demanding exami- 
nation and investigation. It is bad enough, when falsehoods are told, 
bat worse to be written, and still worse to be engraved upon stones.

ALLIED FAMILIES. 



THE ALLIED FAMILIES. 



When the neutral French were driven out of Nova Scotia 
by their English victors, in 1756, liberal offers were made to 
loyal subjects of the King of England to occupy the lands. 
As a consequence, some thousands from Great Britain, Ger- 
many, and the New England States, emigrated to that prov- 
ince, the descendants of a large number of whom are 
connected with the Chute family. During and after the Rev- 
olution, thousands of Loyalists, or Refugees, chose to establish 
themselves in that part of North America, which still remained 
under the British flag. 

Histories of some of these families have been partly writ- 
ten, and published in the United States, and so will not be 
so fully described here; while the greater part of them are 
now printed for the first time, and will be in more detail.

ton), and had 13 children before 1699. On March 15, 1697, nineteen or 
twenty Indians made a raid upon the town, burned half a dozen houses, mur- 
dered and captured about thirty-nine persons, including Mrs. Hannah Dus- 
tin, her nurse, Mary Corliss, widow of Wm. Neff, and an English boy, Sam 
Lennardson. Her baby, Martha, only 6 days old, had its brains dashed out 
against a tree, in its mother's sight ! Mr. Dustin, seelngthe savages coming, 
ran with his gun, got between them and the children — eight of his own and 
several others along with them — and g <t them to a place of safety. The 
captured ones were marched seventy-flve or eighty miles north, through the 
woods, to an island in the Merrimack river, at Pennacook, above Concord, 
N. H. The Indian family were twelve— two stout men, three women, and 
seven children — and while there in camp, fearing and dreading worse usage, 
Mrs. Dustin planned their escape. So on the night of the 29th, while they were 
asleep, Mrs. Dustin and her nurse, with tomahawks, brained ten of them ; one, 
seeing the fate of the others, up and run, and one was spared. She then took 
the ten scalps and her captor*s gun, as trophies, and they paddled down the 
Merrimack in a canoe, arriving at home the 31st, finding their house burned, 
but the husband and children all safe. She was awarded £50 by the General 
Assembly at Boston, and some presents from Colonel Nicholson, governor of 
Maryland. Mr. Dustin was living in 1729, and it is said that she survived 
him several years. The children were: Hannah, 1678; Elizabeth, 1680; 
Mary, 1681; Thomas, 1688; Nathaniel, 1685; .John, 1686; Sarah, 1688; Abi- 
gail, 1690; Jonathan, 1692; Timothy, 1694; Mehitable. 1694; Martha, 1697; 
Lydia, 1698. 

A monument has been erected in Haverhill to the memory of Hannah Dus- 
tin, with appropriate inscriptions upon it.

Ixii ALLIED FAMILIES. 

Young people all, pray lend an ear, 
And don*t forbear to shed a tear ; 
While to your minds a scene I bring, 
That happened early in the Spring 
The last of March, the sky serene, 
Id eighteen hundred and fourteep, 
This tragedy was brought to view, 
And worse than many ever Itnew. 

One afternoon two damsels fair* 
Did walk abroad to take the air. 
When turning back for home that day, 
Death took one of them for his prey. 
A tree was suffered f^om above 
To fall upon this harmless dove ; 
She fell beneath that awfhl rod, 
And had no time to call on Ood. * 

The ground was covered o'er with blood. 
That from her mouth ran in a flood ; 
And tears did melt the snow around, 
While mourning m *de the woods resound. 
Her parents wept, but all in vain. 
Their sighs can*t bring her back again ; 
Her friends and kindred, all as one, 
Their much belovM now bemoan. 

The youthf on whom her tho'ts were bent. 
And in deep mourning did lament 
The loss of his intended bride. 
Who now is severed f^om his side. 
But she has gone and left him here 
To mourn for her, year after year; 
The deep impressions, he will find. 
Will never be worn out of mind. 

Her young companions now are left. 
Of a good friend they are bereft ; 
This should to all a warning be — 
Make ready for eternity. 
How short our lives I how brief, alas I 
Peter^ compares them to the grass. 
The grass doth wither and decay, 
The flower thereof doth fade away. 

This was the text upon that day, 
The damsel mingled with her clay; 
When gloomy looks with griefs attend 
The faces of her many friends. 
Now to conclude — It was her lot — 
So let this scene be ne'er forgot. 
The awAil tree I that shocking blow I 
The fatal spot will ne'er outgrow.

MARSHALL. 

• 

1. i. Sometime before the Revolution, probably about 1770, 
four brothers Marshall went to Granville, N. S., and located, three 
of them in Wilmot, the other, Anthony, at Marshalltown, Digby 
county. Their parentage we have not satisfactorily ascertained. 
Solomon is reported to have come from Pennsylvania to Massachu- 
setts and thence to Nova Scotia, while Anthony is reported to have 
come over from Long Island. William is said to have got his wife, 
Lydia, in Roxbury, Mass., so it is difficult to arrive at precise data 
to trace them. That they were brothers was always said by their 
children in Nova Scotia.

birthday poem on the old HOMESTEAD, FEB. 22, 1884. 

The farmhouse wore a modest mien, 

The small size windows, qoaint and red, 

And through a tangled web of green, 

I thiuk I see the old woodshed ! 
The orchard bloom in white and pink 
Was handsome to the children's eye, 
Sweet music of the bob-'o-link 
Gave pleasure in a sunlit sky. 

The lofty height of hard wood trees,* 
That used to grow upon the hill. 

Was kept to burn ~ we did not freeze — 
For the fireplace we used to fill ! 

The nightingale — her ringing song — 
Upon those trees in summer time. 

We heard it all the evening long, 
She'd almost charm us with her rhyme. 

Of clover red and new-mown hay, 
A fragrance on the air swept by ; 

The old brick yard and miry clay 
Would sometimes cause us boys to sigh ! 

The sunset spread its rose-red glare, 
The stars upon the upland play. 

Through dreary paths of purple air 
North Mountain ranges stretch away. 

* Ash, beech, birch, maple, and oak. 



clx ALLIED FAMILIES. 

Beside the bars, close to the wood, 
Within the mellow twilight gloam, 

How oft a barefoot boy I stood. 
To wait ontil the cows came home. 

The battle x>f my life I've foaght, 
' Part from the scenes of boyhood's time, 

Yet even in this time I sought 
To clasp a stronger hand than mine.

popular 40 years ago as a band of concert singers. Jesse, the 
father (Elisha, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Richard), b. at Mid-

1868, aged 83. Jesse (1813-1853), the chief composer, and Andrew 
B. (1808-1860), were pious members of the Baptist church. John 
Wallace, the only one left, is living in Lynn. Jesse wrote "The Old 
Granite State," " Good old days of Yore," "Slave's Appeal," and 
" Congressional Song." We well remember some of these in days 
of yore, espescially "The Old Granite State," one stanza of which is 
here appended :

SAXTON. 



Long before the Revolution lived at White Plains, Westchester 
county, N. Y., a family named Saxton or Sexton. George Sexton, 
cordwainer, of Rye, sold property in White Plains to Jeremiah 
Fowler, 1735. Lorenzo Sabine (1800-1877), in his " American Loyal- 
ists," 1864, says George Saxton of White Plains, N. Y., lived 
within half a mile of Washington's headquarters ; at the peace of 
1783, went to Digby, N. S. His son George d. there 1860, very 
aged. Whether the father's name was George is questionable. The 
grandsons in Ontario said his name was William, and William's 
wife was Jane Jones. They had two sons, John and G^rge, and t 
daughter Jane.

God has lengthened out my spun 
Beyond the common nge of man. 
He has saved me by his power. 
And has kept me to this hour. 

One hundred years gone o'er my head, 
The seven last I've kept my bed. 
A hundred years has passed away 
As quickly as a winter day. 

Long days and nigh s I lie in pain, 
But I've no reason to complain, 
For it is done to let you see 
How good my Grod has been to me. 

The Lord was pleased to place me where 
I have received the best of care, 
And night and day they watch my bed ; 
May God reward them when I'm dead ! 

Now that my days are almost gone, 
I soon shall Join that heavenly throng, 
And walk that narrow, happy road, 
That brings me nearer to my God. 



ALLIED FAMILIES. CCXl 



When the Lord is pleased to call me, 
ril be ready for to go, 
Believing he will not forsake me, 
When I leave this world of wo. 

When my days on earth are done, 
I shall go down like the sun, 
To rise in Heaven above the sky, 
A place where love can never die. 

When I reach that blessed shore, 
There will I my God adore. 
Ood grant that I his face shall see. 
And praise him thro' eternity.
