PEEFACE. 



It is now about seven years, since, at the solicitation of 
Lebbeus Chapman, Esq., of Brooklyn, N. Y., and George 
H. Chapman, Esq., of Say-Brook, Conn., the compiler of this 
work commenced his labors. 

At the time he entered upon the task, he had no concep- 
tion of the amount of labor which would be required in col- 
lecting and arranging a Genealogical Table of the Descend- 
ants of Robert Chapman, our common ancestor. Nor was 
it supposed, when the offer was generously made by one of 
his descendants, to print and distribute a copy of the work 
gratis, to all the living descendants, that it would be any- 
thing more than a pamphlet of forty or fifty pages, at the 
most. It was soon found, however, that the descendants 
were so numerous and scattered throughout all the states of 
the Union, that a much longer time would be required to 
obtain returns from them, at all satisfactory, than was at 
first contemplated. The task has been a laborious one, 
consuming not less than one-third of the author's waking 
hours for seven years, accompanied with no small pecuniary 
expense, in traveling from place to place to examine records, 
and in postage, stationery, etc. About thirteen hundred let- 
ters have been written, more than one hundred burial grounds 
visited, and the records of more than forty towns thoroughly 
searched, and not a less number of probate, church and par- 
ish records examined. The oldest and largest libraries of 
New England have also been consulted, to gather up what- 
ever could be obtained of historical interest in regard to the 



b PREFACE. 

Chapman Family in the Old World and the New. The 
expense of a work of this sort can never be estimated by any 
but those who have been engaged in similar labors. A full 
pecuniary compensation can not be expected, as the sale of 
the work must be comparatively limited. 

The compiler assures his numerous relatives, to whom he 
introduces himself in these pages, that he has spared no 
care or pains to make a perfect record. Perfection, however, 
in such a work can not be expected. No small perplexity 
has often been experienced, in deciphering old records and 
inscriptions, and in reading some of the letters received from 
aged persons, and others unaccustomed to writing. Often, 
too, the statements in regard to ages, dates of births, mar- 
riages and deaths of different branches of a family, have con- 
flicted with each other. In some instances, no dates can be 
found, in which case we have attempted only an approxi- 
mation to accuracy. 

It is exceedingly difficult to avoid mistakes in printing 
a work containing so many figures, even when the copy is 
complete. Several errors escaped the notice of both the 
proof-reader and compiler, which are corrected at the end of 
the volume. While some who have been addressed have 
promptly replied and rendered all the aid in their power in 
transmitting records and collecting facts, others have neg- 
lected for weeks and months, and even years, the answers 
they might have given at once, and many have never an- 
swered at all. 

It is to be regretted that a few families have been so sep- 
arated from their relatives that no trace of them and their 
descendants has been found. Still, with few exceptions, we 
think it will be found that a full and accurate record is given. 
There are, of course, many of the younger generation now 
on the stage, who have been born during the seven years that 
have transpired since the preparation of the work com- 
menced, whose names are not included. 

The special thanks of the compiler are due to several 
persons who have kindly aided him in his researches. 

To Isaac Chapman, Esq., of East Haddam, who although

of twelve children, in the year 1794. 

To Rev. Timothy M. Cooley, D. D., for an interesting 
account of Isaac Chapman, the father of Mrs. Content

services. 

To Rev. David D. Field, D. D., now of Stockbridge, 
Mass., for assistance in tracing the descendants of Timothy

To George H. Chapman, Esq., of Saybrook, for assist- 
ance in tracing the descendants of Deac. Nathanael Chap- 
man through the line of the Rev. Daniel Chapman and of 
Elisha Chapman, and for the deep interest he has mani- 
fested in this work from the beginning, and but for whose 
substantial aid and encouragement, it is much to be doubted 
whether the work would ever hafe been published. 

To Mr. Nathaniel Goodwin, of Hartford, for useful 
hints in regard to the general plan of the work. 

Also, to George M. Chapman, Esq., of Brooklyn, N. Y., 
and to William P. Chapman, of New York city, for the 
general interest they have manifested; and to the numerous 
town clerks and clerks of probate, who have allowed the 
compiler free access to their records. 

Note. It is the particular request of the compiler, that 
where mistakes are discovered in the genealogical record of 
individuals or families, a correction may be promptly for- 
warded to him, that it may be entered in a preserved copy, 
and serve to render a future edition more complete ; and also, 
that births, marriages and deaths which occur hereafter, may 
be sent, and thus the record be continued for the benefit of 
succeeding generations.

INTRODUCTION. 

OUTLINE HISTORY OF SAY-BROOK. 



As Robert Chapman was one of the first settlers of Say-Brook, 
some notice seems to be demanded, in a work like this, of the causes 
which led to the settlement. 

The settlement of Xew England resulted from religious tyranny. 
Under the reign of the Tudors and the Stuai'ts, many left their 
native land to enjoy civil and religious fre^om, in the, then, solitudes 
and wilds of America. Required, in their own country, to conform 
to rites and ceremonies, in their view, inconsistent with the true wor- 
ship of God, they resolved to forego all the privileges and endear- 
ments of home, that they might serve their Maker in a manner 
conformable to the dictates of their own consciences. They came not, 
to this country, to accumulate property, to acquire renown, or live 
in ease and splendor. Their motives and aims were vastly higher, 
viz., to obey God and prepare themselves for heaven. 

With these aims and motives, and with firm trust in God ; with 
fortitude and cheerfuhiess they encountered the perils of the ocean, 
and the toils and sufferings incident to landing upon an inhospitable 
coast, and subduing the wilderness, in the presence of a severe cli- 
mate and cruel savages. In the year 1620, a band of these adven- 
turers landed on Plymouth Rock, and, in 1629, a company arrived 
under Mr. John Endicot, and settled Salem and Charlestown. The 
year following, several other towns were settled, in Massachusetts. 
Li 1633, Rev. Thomas Hooker, of Chelmsford in the county of 
Essex in England, taking with him Mr. Samuel Stone, a lecturer at 
Torcestershire, in Northamptonshire, for an assistant in the minis- 
try, came to Boston, in the Griffin, a ship of about 300 tons. With 
him came over the famous Jolm Cotton, Mr. John Haynes, after- 
ward governor of Connecticut, Mr. Goff, and two hundred other 
2

INTRODUCTI ON. 



passengers of importance to the colony. They arrived on the 4th 
of September, 1633. Mr. Hooker and a part of this company pro- 
•ceeded to Newtown, now Cambridge, where they were received, cor- 
dially, by others that had located themselves there, a short time 
before. Mr. Hooker was chosen their pastor, and Mr. Stone their 
teacher. On the 11th of October, the church was gathered, and 
after solemn fasting and prayer, the pastor and teacher were ordain- 
ed to their respective offices. The church at Watertown had been 
gathered on the 27th of August, 1630, and Mr. Philips ordained 
their pastor. Mr Warham, with his church and congregation, came 
over about the same time. The church was organized previous to 
their leaving England, and Mr. TTarham chosen pastor, and Mr. 
Maverick their teacher, and they settled at Dorchester. 

In June, 1635, Mr. Hooker and his congregation came across the 
wilderness and settled Hartford, Mr. TTarham and his people settled 
Windsor, Mr. Philips and his congregation settled at Wethersfield, 
according to the prevailing opinion, the year previous. The above 
towns, then, included Glastenbury, East Hartford, and East Windsor. 

The inhabitants of thes^ towns soon agreed upon a constitution of 
civil government for themselves, and such as should afterward be 
joined to them. This was the beginning of the government of Con- 
necticut. About the time of the settlement of these towns, a fort 
was erected at Say-Brook, under Governor John Winthrop, and a 
settlement commenced there. The town originally included Killing- 
worth, Chester, West-Brook and most of the town of Lyme, and was 
a distinct government from Connecticut, until 1614. 

About two years previous to the settlement of the towns on the river, 
John Oldham from Dorchester and three men with him, had trav- 
eled across the wilderness to Connecticut, to view the country and 
trade with the Indians. The same year the Dutch entered the river 
and established a fort, at Hartford, and William,Holmes from Plym- 
outh, within whose jurisdiction Connecticut was regarded as belong- 
ing, sailed up the river, in defiance of their remonstrances, and 
erected a house at Windsor. This led to a contest between the Dutch 
and English, which finally resulted in the foimer abandoning the 
river. 

A fort, at the mouth of the river, was deemed important, as a mat- 
ter of safety, to the towns on the river, and to protect the company 
from future aggressions. 

On the 8th of October^ 1635, Mr. John Winthrop, son of Gover- 
nor Winthrop of Massachusetts, arrived at Boston, with a commission

from Lord Say and Seal, Lord Brook and other noblemen and gentle- 
men, interested in the Connecticut Patent, to erect the intended forti- 
fication. Their lordships sent over men, ordnance, ammunition and 
2,000 pounds sterling, for the accomplishment of their design. In 
August previous, twenty men arrrived in Massachusetts, sent over by 
Sir Richard Saltonstall, to take possession of a large quantity of 
land in Connecticut, and to make settlements under the patent of 
Lord Say and Seal, with whom he was a principal associate. 

These twenty men under the direction of Winthrop, late in the 
■winter of 1635-6, or very early in the succeeding spring, repaired to 
the mouth of the river and erected the fort.* They were, soon after, 
reinforced by John Underbill and nineteen men, who were sent to 
their assistance, to prevent their being overpowered by the Indians. 

Great were the hardships, and numerous the privations, of these 
early settlers at Say-Brook. 

About the beginning of October, the enemy, concealing themselves 
in the high grass, in the meadows, surprised five of the garrison at 
Say-Brook as they were carrying home their hay. One of them by 
the name of Butterfield, was taken and tortured to death. The rest 
of them made their escape and entered the fort, one of them having 
had five arrows shot into him. It was this circumstance that gave 
it the name of Butterfield's Meadow, which it still retains. 

But a few days after the above occurrence, one Joseph Tilly, a 
master of a small vessel, was captured by the Indians, when proceed- 
ing down the river. He anchored two or three miles above the fort, 
and, taking a canoe and one man with him, went a fowling. Imme- 
diately, on discharging his piece, a large number of Pequots arising 
from their concealment, took him, and killed his companion. Tilly, 
being a man of uncommon strength and energy, determined to show 
himself superior to the tortures, they might inflict upon him. They 
treated him in the most barbarous manner, first cutting off his hands 
and then his feet, and so, gradually, torturing hiija to death. But he 
died without a struggle or a groan. The enemy kept up a constant 
watch upon the river, and the settlers at Say-Brook. A house had 
been erected about two miles from the fort and six of the garrison 
were sent to keep it. As three of them were fowling, at a small dis- 
tance from the house, they were suddenly attacked by nearly an 
hundred of the Pequots, and two of them were taken. The other

cut his way through them, sword in hand, and made his escape, 
wounded with two arrows. 

Before winter, the garrison were so pressed by the enemy, that 
they were obliged to keep, ahnost wholly, within the reach of their 
guns. 

The Pequots destroyed all the out-houses, burnt the stacks of 
hay, and ravaged everything, which was not within command of the 
fort. The cattle belonging to the garrison were killed or wounded. 
Some of them came home, Avith the arrows of the enemj'- sticking in 
them. The fort was but little better than in a state of siege, during 
the whole winter. The enemy so encompassed it about, and watched 
all the motions of the garrison, that it was dangei-ous, at any time, to 
go out of the reach of the cannon. 

As spring arrived, they became still more mischievous and trouble- 
some. They kept such a constant watch upon the river that men 
could not pass up and down, with any safety, without a strong guard. 
They waylaid the roads and fields, and kept Connecticut in a state 
of constant fear and alarm. In March, Lieut. Gardiner, who com- 
manded the fort at Say-Brook, going out with ten or twelve men to 
bui'n the marshes, was waylaid by a narrow neck of land, and a§ 
soon As lie n&u passed the narrow part of the neck, the enemy rose 
upon him and killed three of his men. The rest made their escape 
to their fort ; but one of them was mortally wounded, so that he died 
the next day. Gardiner himself received a slight wound. The 
enemy pursued them, in great numbers, to the very fort, and encom- 
passed it on all sides. They challenged the English to come out and 
fight, and mocked them in the groans, jdIous invocations and dying 
language of their friends. The cannon loaded with grape-shot, were 
fired upon them, and they were dispersed.* 

Some time after this, the Indians, in a number of canoes, beset a 
shallop, which was going down the river, with three men on board. 
The men fought bravely, but were overpowered with numbers. The 
enemy shot one through the head with an arrow, and he fell over- 
board ; the other two were taken, tortured, cut and mangled in the 
most shocking manner, and hung up, by the neck, upon the river's 
bank, that, as the English passed by, they might behold the miserable 
objects of their vengeance. 

So great was the annoyance of the Indians to the whites, particu- 

* See Appendix, note A. 



INTRODUCTION. 17 

larlj upon the river, that the Court met in February, 1637, to take 
efficient measures for subduing them. Capt. Mason was soon dis- 
patched with twenty men to reinforce the garrison, and to keep the 
enemy at a greater distance. After his arrival at the fort, the In- 
dians made no farther attacks upon it, but appeared very much to 
withdraw from that quarter. 

Soon after this, Underhill, who had been appointed in the preced- 
ino' fall to keep garrison at Say-Brook, was sent from Massachusetts 
with twenty men, to reinforce the garrison. On their arrival, Capt. 
Mason and his men returned, immediately, to Hartford. 

A special court was summoned, at Hartford, on the 1st of May, to 
devise means for the defense of Connecticut from the common enemy. 
They voted the raising of ninety men, forthwith, in Hartford, Weth- 
ersfield and Windsor. These were furnished with the necessary sup- 
plies, and with Mason for their commander, fell down the river in a 
pinnace and a shallop for Say-Brook, on the 10th of the same month. 
The company consisted of ninety Englishmen, and about seventy 
Mohegan and river Indians, commanded by Uncas their sachem. 
The troops arrived at Say-Brook on the 15th. The Mohegans, at 
their urgent request, were set on shore before they arrived at Say- 
Brook. They fell in with about forty Pequots on their march, and 
killed seven and took one prisoner. They put him to death in a 
most barbai'ous manner ; he having before been received kindly at 
the fort, and in a most perfidious manner betrayed the English, and 
been the cause of most of the attacks and murders that had already 
occurred. On the lOtli of May, Mason proceeded, with his company 
by water, to Narraganset, and formed, with the Indians there, a junc- 
tion for the purpose of avenging the murder of their countrymen 
by the Pequots. He marched with his company, consisting of sev- 
enty-seven Englishmen, sixty Mohegans, and 200 Narragansets, for 
Mystic, the head-quarters of the enemy. He was joined by others 
on the march, until his entire force amounted to about 500 men. 

Arriving at Mystic in the following night, they surprised the Pe- 
quots in their fort. So sudden was the attack, and so unprepared 
were they for defense, that at morn, the entire garrison were cut to 
pieces, the fort burned to the gi'ound, and five or six hundred In- 
dians perished by the sword or in the flames.* 

So completely was the poAvcr of the enemy broken, by this disas-

ter, that they never after rallied, in sufficient force, to offer any seri- 
ous annoyance to the settlers upon the river. The conquest of the 
Pequota struck all the Indians, in New England, with terror, and 
they were seized with such fear of the displeasure and arms of the 
English, that they had no open war with them for forty years. There 
was a general rejoicing throughout the colonies. A day of thanks- 
giving was appointed, and all the churches of New England sent up 
their songs of praise to him, who had given them the victory, and the 
prospect of future peace and prosperity. 

As Robert Chapman was one of the band of adventurers, who es- 
tablished the fort at Say-Brook, and was a sharer in the events which 
have been narrated, it was deemed proper to introduce the previous 
account of the early settlement of the town where he resided until 
his decease, a period of more than fifty years. 

At this distance of time, the descendants of those early settlers, 
scattered up and down in the land, and now numbering not less prob- 
ably than 100,000, in the enjoyment of all the blessings conferred 
by science and the arts, by civil and religious freedom, can not, fully, 
realize what they suffered, nor how great is their indebtedness for the 
legacy confex-red upon them. 

They were men of undaunted courage, indomitable resolution, firm 
religious principle, and most of them possessing, for their time, supe- 
rior mental cultivation, men from whom none of their descendants 
need blush to have derived their origin. 

" Just men they were. 

And all their study bent, 

To worship God aright and know his vvorlcs, 

Not hid, nor those things least which miglit jneserve 

Freedom and peace to man." 



HISTORY OF THE CHAPMAN FAMILY. 

The name Chapman is of Saxon origin. A large class of sur- 
names among the Anglo-Saxons, is derived from *trades, or occupa- 
tions. 

The Saxon word fCeapman, means a Chapman, marketman, a 
monger or merchant.

INTRODUCTION. 19 

The surname Chapman occurs among the earliest of English 
surnames, and the family, in many of its branches, was somewhat 
-rrtjttt distinguished at an eai-ly peiiod. Not a few of them still 
occupy prominent stations in the British Empire. In the year 1298, 
John Chapman was returned to Parliament as Burgess for Chippen- 
ham, *In 1307, Peter Chapman was returned Burgess for Derby. 
In 1309, John Chapman returned for Surrey. In 1307, Robert 
Chapman returned for Preston, and in 1311 for Steyning, and in 
1321, for Taunton, and in 1322 for Taunton, to the Parliament at 
York. In 1311, Philip Chapman, returned for Taunton, and Wil- 
liam Chapman for Bridgewater. In 1313, John Chapman, returned 
for Chippenham. In 1815, for Warwick, and in 1325 for Hereford. 
In 1324, Geoffrey Chapman i-eturned for Cambridge. In 1315, 
William Chapman returned for Downton, and in 1825, for Seaford. 
In 1326, John Chapman was appointed, by Parliament, to attend the 
array and muster of the Hundred of Loose, in the county of Suffolk, 
on Thursday, the 24th of April, after the Feast of St. George. At 
the same time and place, Robert Chapman, of the township of Fram- 
lingham, was also appointed to attend the array and muster. 

fPeter Chapman, ironmonger, gave £60 to the eight prisons in 
and about London. 

JA letter appears from Simon Archbishop of Canterbury, to John 
Chapman, one of his clergy in 1430, and to William Chapman of 
London, in 1438. 

In 1534, Thomas Chapman takes the oath of fidelity, on his in- 
duction to the chair of sacred theology. In 1553, George Chap- 
man was appointed to a rectory in London, and in the same year 
Thomas Chapman, " ad Rectoriam de Merston cicestren." Sir John 
Chapman was High Sheriff of Sussex and Surrey in 1634. A spe- 
cial commission was issued concerning the supjjression of schism, in 
London, in 1599, Henry Chapman being at that time alderman. 
§Sir John Chapman, knight, of Tower street, was elected alderman 
in 1679, and served in the office of high sheriff, the same year. In 
1689, he was chosen lord mayor and died a few days before the ex-

Chapman, Bart. ||In 1619,. Alexander Chapman, S. T. P., became

of the county of Norfolk, and was chaplain to the princess Elizabeth, 
consort of the prince Frederick, elector palatine, and became arch- 
deacon of Stowe, in Lincolnshire, and a prebendary of that church. 
He died Sept. 6th, 1629, aged fifty-two, and was buried in this 
cathedral, where there is a monument with his bust on it in white 
marble, erected to his memory, and this inscription.

INTRODUCTION. 21 

The following lines occur in English under the latter inscription. 

" This soul too rich a prize for mortal race, 
Endued with nature and the gifts of grace, 
Once viewed this world, and, then in much disdain, 
Left this void earth and now in glory reigns." 

George Chapman, a distinguished poet, flourished in the seventeenth 
century. After receiving a university education, he settled in London, 
where the great luminaries of the time, Shakespeare, Jonson, Sidney, 
Spenser and Daniel, became his familiar friends. He expected pre- 
ferment from the patronage of the AYalsinghams, and of Somerset 
and Prince Henry, but all his hopes ended in disappointment. Be- 
sides seventeen dramatic pieces, one of which was the famous mask 
called the Temple, he translated Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and at- 
tempted Hesiod and Musoeus. Pope, who has borrowed much from 
him without acknowledgment, calls him an enthusiast in poetry, 
but the remark is invidious, as Chapman possessed respectable poet- 
ical powers, and was a man of some genius. He died 1634, aged 
seventy-seven.* His monument may be seen in the parish of St. 
Giles. 

■John Chapman, D, D., a learned divine, flourished in the eight- 
eenth century. He was educated at Eton and at King's College, 
Cambridge, for the provostship of which he was an unsuccessful can- 
didate. He obtained the livings of Mersham and Adlington, Kent, 
from Archbishop Potter, to whom he was chaplain, and at the death 
of this prelate, as his executor, he presented himself as one of the 
primate's options, to the precentorship of Lincoln ; an appointment 
which was confirmed by Chancellor Henley, but set aside by ^ the 
House of Lords. He died 14th of October, 1784, in his eightieth year. 
His writings were. Remarks on Dr. Middleton's letter to "Waterland — 
Eusebius, two vols. 8vo., in which he defended Christianity against 
Morgan and Tindal — History of Ancient Hebrews vindicated — two 
tracts relating to Phlegon in answer to Dr. Skye's briefs, sermons 
and other things, and a joint edition of Cicero De Ofliciis with Bish- 
op Pearce.t 

In a time of great scarcity in England, of breadstuffs, occasioned 
by excessive rains and inundations in the seventeenth year of the 
reign of Henry YL, a special commission was given by the king to 
Robert Chapman, merchant of the city of York, recommending him

to procure a supply of grain, within liis dominions, as it was a

1439.*

There are known to be, at the present time, in England, not less 
than twenty clergymen of the established church, of the name of 
Chapman. 

It is a singular fact, that while the name of Chapman occurs in 
the records referred to, for several centuries back, in different shires 
and counties of England ; the Christian name of Robert has been

found only in Yorkshire. It occurs, frequently, as a prevailing fam- 
ily name in that shire, which goes very far to confirm the family 
tradition, that Robert Chapman, who came to Boston in 1635, and 
to Say-Brook, the succeeding spring, came from Hull, in Yorkshire. 

There are not less than sixteen different families or branches of 
the great Chapman family, designated by their respective coats of 
arms. 

Those of Cambridgeshire and Yorkshire and London, are in the 
main alike, a crescent, — the crest being a dexter arm embowed, habit- 
ed in mail, holding in the hand a broken tilting spear entiled with a 
chaplet, of laurel, as appears in the engraving ; with the motto 
" Crescit sub pondere virtus ;" Virtue increases under affliction. (See 
engraving at the head of the genealogy.) 

The following account of the Chapman family, taken from Burke's 
Peerage, supplementary volume, 1 848, p. 65, is inserted here, as the 
name of Robert occurs often, and there is little room to doubt, that 
it is the family with which our common ancestor was connected, 
although we are not able to give the name of his father. As a stig- 
ma attached to those who left their country, under the banner of 
Puritanism, the same care was not taken to retain their names in 
family registers, as was the case with those who continued residents 
until their death. Those who left were soon forgotten, and hence the 
extreme difficulty of tracing any connection between the early settlers 
of our country and their ancestors, in the father-land, especially, if 
those who left their ancestral home, had not been in any way distin- 
guished, before leaving. The majority of the Puritan settlers were, 
like our ancestor, in the morning of life, and consequently had en- 
joyed no opportunity to fill stations of importance, where they could 
perform public acts which would be matter of record. 

"CHAPMAN OF WHITBY STRAND. 

" Chapman, Thomas, of Whitby, county York, F. R. S. & F. S. 
A., born June 21st, 1798, married 24th of March, 1825, Maria 
Louisa, youngest daughter of John Hanson, Esq., of the Rookery of 
Woodford and of Great Brownley Hall, Co. Essex, and has an only 
daughter, Ethel Maria. Mr. Chapman is a magistrate for the coun- 
ty of Middlesex.

The Chapman family, says Young in his history of Whitby, resi-

ded at Whitby and in Yburndale, prior to the year 1400, as appears 
from the registers and rolls of Whitby Abbey. 

The late Sir Thomas Chapman, and Admiral Chapman of Sweden 
belonged to the family. This family, (we quote an old family 
manuscript,) was settled, at or near Whitby, in the time of Henry 
III.,* as appears by ancient i-ecords, and in the time of Richard II. 
some of them were prosecuted and imprisoned, by the abbot of 
Whitby, for maintaining their just rights and privileges, but were 
soon set at hberty, by the abbot, without paying any fees. They in- 
creased much in a century or two, and many of them were in the 
parliamentary army. 

Ro-^er Cliapman and -John Chapman were of Yburn near Whitby 
in the county of York, in 1381, fromf one of whom descended Rob- 
ert Chapman, temp, of Henry VIII., who died Dec. 2d, 1G07, and 
was father of John Chapman, born 24tli of Elizabeth, 1570, and 
died 31st of March, 1614; whose son Robert, baptized Nov. 19th, 
1603, married Mary Acklowe and by her, who died 24th of March,, 
1667-8, had issue as follows. 

I. John, d. s. p. II. James, d. s p. III. Robert, 2d April, 1638, married Han- 
nah Hardwiclce, and had two sons and two daughters, 1 James, d. s. p., 2d 
John, married Elizabeth Wayman, and had issue, (1) Amy, married 1st ta 
Giles Parker, and 2d to John Hill. (2) Mary, married to Francis Gill. 

IV. Ingram, baptized March 22d, 1639-40, who, by Jane his wife, had three 
sons and two daughters. The elder of the daughters, Esther, married Robert 
Bromley, whose eldest son Adam, had an only daughter, Dorothy, married to 
Henry Arkew, Esq., of Redheagh, Co. Durham. 

v. William, of whom presently, 1 Mary, married to Henry Barker, 2d Mar- 
garet, married first to John Carlill and second to John EUdln, 3d Jane, married 
to John Hill. The above Mr. William Chapman, died Nov. 1st, 16S5. 

The name occurs in several of the early settlements of New En- 
gland, and also in Maryland and Virginia. We have, John Chap- 
man in New Haven, in a list of planters in 1643, whose estate was 
placed in the list, at £300, and who is believed to have died without 
male heirs. 

Edioard Chapman had a grant of land in Ipswich, Mass., in 1644.

1657.

We have, here, fourteen men of the name of Chapman, besides 
our ancestor, among the early settlers, between whom no near rela- 
tionship has been discovered. It would have been impossible to 
trace the descendants of Robert of Say-Brook, and have kept them 
distinct from the descendants of the other stocks, had not the first 
three generations been recorded on the Say-Brook records. 

Being himself town-clerk for many years, his marriage and the 
births of his children, and of most of his grand-children, are recor- 
ded, in his own hand. 

It has been gratifying to the compiler to find, that with few ex- 
ceptions, the descendants of Robert Chapman have been men of in- 
dustrious habits. While they have contributed their full proportioa 
to the agricultural, mechanical and commercial wealth of the land, 
a goodly number of them have been men of cultivated minds — who 
have honored the learned professions.

A BRIEF SKETCH OF THE CHARACTER, LIFE AND PUBLIC SER- 
VICES OF ROBERT CHAPMAN, THE FIRST SETTLER. 

Most persons take peculiar satisfaction in being able to trace their 
lineage to remote ancestors ; in learning where they lived, and 
through what scenes of prosperity and adversity they passed, and in 
recounting the benefits which they conferred upon their posterity. 
Nothing, definite, is known of Robert Chapman, previous to his emi- 
gration to this country. According to the family tradition, he came 
from Hull in England to Boston, in 1635, from which place he sailed 
in company with Lyon Gardiner, for Say-Brook, Nov. 3, as one of 
the company of twenty men, who were sent over by Sir Richard 
Saltonstall, to take possession of a lai-ge tract of land, and make 
settlements, near the mouth of the Connecticut River, under the 
patent of Lord Say and Seal as already stated. He is supposed to 
have been about eighteen years of age. 

After the Indians were subdued, deeming it safe to form plantations 
at a distance from the fort, they proceeded to clear up the forests 
and form a permnent settlement. For about ten years after leaving 
England, according to a tradition in the family, he kept a journal. 
It is to be regretted that, about twelve years after the establishment 
of the fort, it was burned, and the records of those who occupied it 
were lost. He was one of the particular friends of Col. George 
Fenwick. That he was a man of influence, in the town of Say- 
Brook, is evident from the fact, that, for many years, he held the 
ofiice of town-clerk, and clerk of the Oyster River quarter, and filled 
many other important stations. He was for many years commission- 
er for Say-Brook, and was elected as their deputy to the General 
Court, forty-three times, and assistant nine times. He was, therefore, 
a member of the legislature of the state at more sessions than any 
other man, from the settlement of Say-Brook, to the present time. 

The following list will show the number of times and dates of the 
sessions he attended. 

He was deputy to the General Court, which set at Hartford, accord- 
ing to the colony records —

The colony records also show that each of his three sons were repre- 
sentatives to the legislature : the eldest, twenty-two sessions ; the 
second one, eighteen sessions ; the third, twenty-four sessions. 

Robert Chapman seems to have been a soldier. Lieut. Col. Gar- 
diner, in his " History 6f the Pequot War," speaks of him as a sen- 
tinel in a skirmish on the neck, Feb. 22d, 1637, with the Indians, 
and once as engaged in beating samp.f 

It appears, from the records of Say-Brook, that Robert Chapman, 

• It will be understood, by the reader, that the government of Connecticut 
consisted of a Governor, Lieut. Governor, and deputies from the several towns 
which constituted the lower house, and assistants or magistrates, which consti- 
tuted the ujjper house.

was a very large landholder, in the towns of Say-Brook and East 
Haddam. He also owned a very large tract of land, in Hebron, 
leaving at his decease, to each of his three sons, fifteen hundred acres 
in that town, which he received as one of the legatees of Uncas and 
his sons.* 

"A will of Attawanhood, third sou of Uncas, is signed March 10th, 1676, 
in Lyme, near Eight Mile Island, in Connecticut River. He gave to his sons a 
large tract of land, apparently north-west of Say-Brook, with the condition 
that if one died it should go to the survivor, and if both died, to their sister. 
He also left them forty acres, at Podunk, and about half a mile square within 
a tract which had, a little previously, been added to Hartford. These lands, if 
his three sons died, were to revert to his wives. The rest of his property was 
given away, in enormous tracts, to various white persons of Hartford, Say- 
Brook and other places. "Whole townships, as for instance those cf Windham, 
Mansfield and Canterbury, were included. A single grant covered an 100,000 
acres, and the whole line of lands reached eighteen miles north and south, and, 
in some places, east and west. The Indians, who then resided on his territo- 
ries, he directed to leave them, and attach themselves to his father, Uncas. 
His sons, he desired to live near Say-Brook, to be taught English by their 
mother, and, at the end of four years, to be placed at an English school. Thir- 
ty-five pounds, which were owing to him by certain whites, as well as the 
rents of all the lands which he had left the boys, were to be expended, in their 
support and education. He recommended his children, earnestly to all his 
legatees, but more particularly to three, whom he mentioned by name, Robert 
Chapman, "William Pratt and Thomas Buckingham. For himself, he directed 
that he should be buried at Say-Brook in a coffin, and after the manner of the 
English. "t 

Robert settled himself, on a tract of land, in Oyster Eiver, about 
two miles west of Say-Brook fort, which has descended in the line 
of the youngest son of each family, never having been bought or 
sold, and is now occupied by George H. Chapman, Esq., who is the 
youngest of the fifth generation.]: 

He was a man of exemplary piety, and, but a short time previous 
to his decease, he wrote an address to his children, who were all 
members of the church ; in which, it is said, he exhorted them to a 
devoted life and to abide by the covenant, into which they had entered, 
with God and his church. That document was in the hands of one

of his descendants, now on the stage, but it is to be regretted that 
being lent a few years since, to a person out of the family, it was 
never returned, and, we fear, is irrecoverably lost. 

There is some doubt as to the town, in England, where Robert 
was bdrn. Some suppose it was Hull, the place where he embarked. 
Others suppose that aUhough he embarked from Hull, which was one 
of the shipping ports, he was a native of Kent. It is the full belief 
(for reasons already stated) of the compiler of this work, that he 
was a native of Yorkshire, and that his father's name was either 
John or Robert, and most likely the latter. 

Robert's parents were Puritans. His mother, according to a tradi- 
tion in the family, was particularly anxious to emigrate to this coun- 
try, which his father opposed. She induced " Robin" first, and after- 
ward his three sisters, to embark for the wilds of America, in the 
hope that, when they were established in the new world, their father 
would consent to accompany her across the Atlantic and join them. 
There is no reason to suppose that she ever realized her hopes. Of 
the sisters of Robert, (according to an ancient document in the pos- 
session of the Bushnell family, in Say-Brook,) one married William 
Bushnell, the brother of Deacon Francis Bushnell ; another married 
a gentlemen who i-emoved, with her, to the West Indies ; and the 
third died unmarried.

1. Sarah, born March 1, 1673-4. 

2. Ephraim, " Feb. 14, 1675. 

3. M'illiam, ■' AprU 3,1680.

Francis, the fifth child, married Hannah Seamer of Norwalk, Oct. 
12th, 1675, and had issue: 

1. Hannah, bom Aug. 22, 1676. 

2. Mary, " Dec. 21, 1679. 

I have not been able to ascertain whom the other children of Lieut. 
Wm. BushneU married. 

That he was a man of some note, in Say-Brook, is evident from 
the fact, that he held several important offices of trust, in the town, 
and was their representative, for several sessions, to the General Court, 
and was appointed by that body, Lieutenant of the Train-band. 

The records of the General Court show in what estimation Robert 
Chapman was held by that honorable body. 

The following extracts will not fail to intei'est his numerous de- 
scendants. 

At a session of the General Court, at Hartford, Oct. 3d, 1654,

THIRD GENERATION. 
I. 

JojiN Chapman, the eldest son of Robert Chapman, of Say-Brook, 
married Elizabeth Hawley, sister of Joseph Ilawley, of Stratford, 
June 7, 1670, by whom he had three children. She died May 10th, 
1676. Mr. Chapman married for his second wife Elizabeth Bea- 
mont, (Beman,) the daughter of "William Beament, of Say-Brook, by 
whom he had ten children. Of these eight were born in Say-Brook, 
and two in East Haddam. The title of captain is given him in the 
town and church records of East Haddam, and also in the records of 
the secretary of state. That he was a man of considerable note in 
the town of Say-Brook, and at East Haddam, after his removal, is 
evident from the fact that he represented the former town in the Gen- 
eral Court, at fourteen sessions, and the latter at eight sessions. 

At the session of the General Court which convened May 10th, 
1694, the following act was passed: "This Court grants liberty to 
Capt. John Chapman to set up a ferry over the Great River in Had- 
dam for the future ;" hence the name Chapman's Ferry. The pro- 
bate records of Hartford, and the town records of East Haddam and 
of Hebron, show that he owned large tracts of land in each of said 
towns. He died, as is supposed, in the spring of 1712. His estate 
was settled by the court of probate, at Hartford, April 8th, 1712. 

His second wife, Elizabeth Chapman, died October 30th, 1691. 

[For the settlement of his estate, his lands, &c., see Appendix,

married a lady whose Christian name was Sarah, but whose family 
name I have not been able to ascertain. He resided in the town of

the Rev. Mr. Azariah jNIfrther, do give, grant and confirm unto him 
the said Azariah Mather, his heirs and assigns forever, one 50 pound

Previous to his decease, he made a will, appointing his sons, Jona- 
than and Simeon Chapman, his executors. His death transpired in 
1732, and on the 21st of November of said year his will was exhibited 
and approved. His property he bequeathed to his "loving wife Sa-

Samuel Chapman, son of John Chapman, was born at East Had-

town of Say-Brook, within the limits of Chester parish. He married 
at Say-Brook. The Christian name of his Avife was Mary. The 
name of her family is not known. Mr. Chapman, as appears from 
deeds of land on the Say-Brook records, removed to Salisbury, about 
the year 1740, and afterward he resided in Stonington, as appears in 
a deed of land to Joshua Bushnell, dated July 11, 1745. He soon 
after returned to Say-Brook, where he died in the month of July, 
1747, After his decease his wife was appointed administratrix of his 
estate by the court of probate, which sat at Guilford, Sept. 9, 1747. 
She exhibited an inventory of his estate to the court, Oct. 9, 1747, 
amounting to £230, 18s. Qd. After the discharge of the debts due 
from the estate, the use of the remainder was granted to the widow 
during lier natural Ufe, and as no children are mentioned in the set- 
tlement of the estate, it is presumed Mr. Chapman died without issue. 
Th<^ time of Mrs. Chapman's decease is not known.

* At the ses:^ion of the LegisUiture, in May, 1776, he was appointed Major of 
Militia, and at the session in the fall, Colonel. The following notice, taken from 
Green's Gazette of September IS, 1776, shows the regard of the ladies of East 
Haddam for their townsman, while absent on military duty, and is a handsome 
tribute to their patriotism and physical energy. •' Several of the most respecta- 
ble ladies of East Haddam, about thirty in number, met at Colonel Jabez Chap- 
man's barn, and husked, in four or five hours, about two hundred and forty 
bushels of corn. A noble example, so necessary in this bleeding country, while 
their fathers and brothers were fighting the battles of the nation." — Hinman's 
Rev. War.

resignation under his recent and distressing bereavement. In October, 
177G, from consci^tious scruples of duty, he enlisted a volunteer in 
my father's company, marched to Ticonderoga, and in six weeks fell 
a victim to the camp fever. He was buried near Lake Champlain, 
with all the decencies and sympathies of a camp funeral. He was a 
man of decided piety. Ruth Chapman, the widow of Isaac, married 
Col. .Jacob Bates, an ofiicer in the Revolutionary army, and father of

THE SETTLER. 

THIRD GENERATION. 

2. 
Robert Chapman, Jr., the second son of the first settler, was 
born in the month of September, 1646, at Saj-Brook, Conn., and 
was extensively engaged in agriculture. He owned at the time of 
his decease not less than 2,000 acres of land, in Say-Brook, East 
Haddam and Hebron, as appears from the probate records at New 
London. The town records, as well as the records of the secretary 
of state, abundantly show, that he was a man of extensive influence, 
in civil affairs. He was for many years, clerk of Oyster River Quarter, 
and commissioner and surveyor for the town of Say-Brook. But a 
short time after his father's decease, he was elected representative to 
the state legislature, which office he filled, at eighteen sessions. The 
following extract from the state records, will show the years of his 
attendance as a member of that honorable body, viz.

But his highest encomium is, that he "walked with God." He, 
early in life experienced a change of heart, and connected himself

moved Avith part of his church to Norwich, Conn. The estimation 
in which he was held by the church, is evinced by the fact, that

ry artel a half, has served to preserve the purity and order of the 
Congregational churches of Connecticut. To have been a member 
of that body, is a higher honor than could have been conferred by 
any merely civil trust. Mr. Chapman was twice married: 1, ta 
Sarah Gi'iswold, (who was probably a daughter of Lieut. Francis 
Oris wold,) of Norwich, July 27, 1671, by whom he had nine chil- 
dren. Mrs. Sarah Chapman died April 7, 1692. 2, to Mary Shea-

He died suddenly, in the court-room, at Hartford, soon after the 
opening of the November session in 1711. 

His tombstone stands in the old burial-ground, in Hartford, in the 
rear of the Center church, about a rod north of the monument, on 
which are inscribed the names of the first settlers of Hartford; with 
this inscription. " Here lyeth the body of Robert Chapman, who 
departed this life November ye 10th, 1711, Aged 65 y^ars." Sev- 
eral of his numerous children, died in infancy. But four of them 
married and raised families, and yet his descendants number more 
than the aggregate of both his brothers, John and Nathaniel. 

The date of Mrs. Mary Chapman's decease is not known. A 
large number of their descendants have been persons of standing 
and influence, in the learned professions, and eminent as members of 
the household of faith. 

The following is a fac-simile of his signature.

8, 1812, and died about ten months after his installation. He was 
seized with his last illness, while in the pulpit, preaching from 2 
Timothy 4 : 7, 8 ; "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my 
course, I have kept the faith : Henceforth there is laid up for me a 
crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, shall 
give me at that day ; and not to me only, but unto all them, also, 
that love his appearing." A fit termination of a laborious, exempla- 
ry and devoted life, in the cause of Christ. His mantle has fallen 
upon his descendants. His descendants are numerous in the Empire 
State, and in the western and southern states. An unusually large 
number of them have been, and are professional men, and bright and 
shining lights in the church of God. Mr. Chapman was twice mar- 
ried: 1, to Miss Blanche Smith. By her he had three children. 
Mrs. Blanche Chapman died in November, 1773, at Orangedale, 
N. J. The following is the inscription upon her monument. 

~ " Here rests the body of Mrs. Blauclie Chapman, the wile of the Rev. Jede- 
diah Chapman, who died Nov., 1773, in the 29th year of her age.

Each common friend will drop a tear.

Pangs, which a tender husband feel ; 
When thus, the young, his joy, the just, 
Consume and moulder into dust. 
These balsams faith, alone, can give 
Which tell us that the dead shall live, 
, That death his conquest, shall restore. 
The just shall meet and part no more." 

2, he married Miss Margaretta Le Conte, by whom he had three 
children. Mrs. Margaretta Chapman died September 9, 1812, at 
Geneva, N. Y. The following is the inscription on her monument. 

" Mrs. Margaretta Chapman, daughter of Dr. Peter Le Conte, and wife of 
the Rev. Jedediah Chapman, born at Monmouth, N. J., died September 9th, 
1812, in the 74th year of her age. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the 
death of his saints." 

Inscription on the Rev. Jedediah Chapman's tombstone at Ge- 
neva, N. Y. 

" The Rev. Jedediah Chapman, born at EastHaddam, Conn., ordained and 
installed at Orangedale, N. J., 1766 ; installed Senior Pastor of the Pres. Church 
of Geneva, July S, 1812, died May 22, 1813, in the 73d year of his age. He 
removed to this village in ISOO, as stated Missionary of the General Assembly, 
and, in that capacity, with a truly apostolic spirit, planted many of the church- 
es, in the infant settlements of this country. He was a zealous advocate of the 
Christian religion, a faithful defender of the doctrines of grace, and exhibit- 
ed the purity of the gospel in his life. 

" He lived respected, he died lamented. ' Blessed are the dead which die in 
the Lord, from henceforth, yea saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors 
and their works do follow them.' "*

Rev. Ezekiel Jones CnArMAN, son of Deacon William Chap- 
man, of Say-Brook, Conn., born August 23, 1781. Graduated at 
Yale College in the class of 1799. During his college course, he 
was hopefully converted and admitted to the college church, by Dr. 
Dwight. His theological studies were prosecuted under the care of 
Dr. Charles Backus, of Somers, and he was licensed to preach the 
gospel, by the Tolland association, October 6, 1801. On the 28th of 
the same month he was ordained an evangelist, at Hebron. In No- 
vember following, he was sent as a missionary to the Western Re- 
serve, in Ohio, by the Connecticut Missionary Society, as a fellow- 
laborer with Rev. Joseph Badger, who was then in that section of 
country. In that work he continued until April, 1803, when he left 
the field. In 1804, he went to Ontario county. New York, where 
he preached the gospel over twenty years, viz. : in Charleston, (now 
Lima,) about eight years; in Bristol, six years; in Livonia, seven 
years, besides preaching in otlie^ places, in that region. In 1827, 
he removed to Madison county, and has resided at Oneida Lake, un- 
til this time. His labors in the different stages of his ministry, have 
been attended with very gratifying success, in the conversion of sin- 
ners to Christ. He has also published, "• a work critical and ex- 
planatory, on important select passages of the New Testament, 
chiefly such as are attended with more or less difficulty to common 
readers," which work has passed through three editions, each suc-

Hannah Chapman, daughter of Eobert Chapman, the settler, 
bom October 4, 1650, was married to David Bull, December 27, 
1677, being twenty-seven years of age. She appears to have had no 
male heirs. Three daughters are found recorded in the town rec- 
ords of Say -Brook, one of whom died in infancy. The following in- 
denture between John Chapman, the eldest brother of Hannah, and 
her husband, David Bull, is inserted as a curiosity : 

"This indenture made, the five and twentieth day of April, in the fourth 
year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord, James the Second, King of England, 
Scotland, France, and Ireland, Defender of the Faith &:c., between David Bull 
of Saybrook, in the county of New London, on the one part and John Chap- 
man Esq. of Saybrook, on the other part, witnesseth, That as well for and in 
consideration of a marriage already had and solemnized, between the said 
David Bull, and Hannah, now wife of the said David Bull, and sister of the 
said John Chapman Esq. ; as for the great good will love and affection which 
the said David hath and beareth to the said Hannah, his wife, and to the intent 
that the house and home lott of land and fruit trees, hereafter in these presents 
specified, shall come and continue in the issue of the said David and Hannah 
in such sort, manner and form as, hereafter, in these presents is expressed, men- 
tioned and declared. It is covenanted, granted, condescended, concluded and 
fully agreed upon, by and between the said parties to these presents, in man- 
ner and form following ; and the said David Bull for the consideration, afore- 
said, doth covenant grant and promise, for himself &c., to and with the said 
John Chapman Esq'r his &:c. by these presents that the said David Bull, shall 
stand and be seized of that, his house and home lot, of land and fruit trees, and

fc). 

Deacon Nathaniel Chapman, son of Robert Chapman, born 
February 16, 1653, was twice married : 1, to Mary Collins, of Guil- 
ford, June 29, 1681, by whom he had four children. The date of 
Mrs. Mary Chapman's decease has not been found. 2, to Hannah 
Bates, supposed to be the sister of Samuel Bates, of Say-Brook, July 
26, 1698, by whom he had five children. Deacon Nathaniel Chap- 
man died April 5, 1726, aged 73. His widow, Mrs. Hannah Chap- 
man, died December, 1750, aged 83. His will and inventory ap- . 
pear in the Appendix, Note E. 

That he was held in high estimation by his fellow-citizens, is evi- 
dent from the fact that he was for many years deacon of the church 
in Say-Brook, and represented the town in the General Court, at 
twenty-four sessions. 

He was a very large landholder, as appears from the records of 
the town of Say-Brook, and of the Oyster River Quarter. He owned 
fifteen hundred acres in Hebron, which he received by inheritance 
from his father, and presented to his son, the Rev. Daniel Chapman, 
of Fairfield, Green's Farms, Conn. On the decease of his father, he 
inherited the paternal homestead, and left the same, by his will, to 
his youngest son, Caleb, reserving to his widow, the use of one- 
third of liis personal estate, and of his housing and lauds, and the 
right of occupying the homestead, with the said Caleb Chapman, 
during her natural life, and making her and his two sons, John and 
Nathaniel Chapman, executrix and executors. His tombstone, a 
plain slab of slate, may be seen in the ancient burial-ground at 
Say-Brook, as also that of his second v.-ife, Hannah.

being the first of the name that received a liberal education in Amer- 
ica ; after which, he studied theology and was ordained and installed 
pastor of the Congregational Church and Society of Green's Farms, 
F'airfield, Conn. He married Grissel Lovel, of the island of Cape 
Breton, a year or two previous to his settlement, by whom he had 
seven children, five sons and two daughters. Only three of his chil- 
dren were ever married. He died at Green's Farms, November 23,

There is no record of the births of the above children. The 
dates of the deaths of the first four are found in the church records, 
and their age, from which the years of their birth are inferred. Den- 
nie is named in deeds, as brother of the others. On page 534 of vol. 
8, of Fairfield town records, is a deed from '• Joseph Scott, of Bos- 
ton, and Elizabeth his wife, to our brother Dennie Chapman, of Fair- 
field, of a piece of land which was set out to said Elizabeth, as a part 
and portion of tlie estate of Rev. Daniel Chapman, deceased, signed, 

JOSEPH SCOTT, 
ELIZABETH SCOTT. 
Februaiy 1'2, 1745." 

There is also a deed from Joseph and Elizabeth Scott, of Boston, 
Mass., of a piece of undivided land, lying with land that belongs to 
Mary Chapman, dated June 14, 1748. Also, on page 369 of vol. 
11, is a deed from Mary Chapman to her brother Dennie. The above 
is sufficient to establish the descent of the seven children, whose 
names are given, from Rev. Daniel Chapman.

four children. lu obedience to the call of his country, in that mem- 
orable struggle which resulted in the independence of our country, 
he entered the army and signalized himself as a soldier. He was 
appointed ensign, and then drum-major, in which capacity he served 
until, as appears by the records of the^Secretary of State, he was ap- 
pointed lieutenant, w'hich took place September 25, 1777. When 
somewhat past the age of 40, and previous to his second marriage, 
he was afflicted with an inflammation of the eyes which resulted in 
total blindness. 

He was, according to the testimony of his compeers and those of 
a later generation who knew him w^ell, a man of strong native talents, 
uncommon vivacity and cheerfulness, an agreeable companion to 
both the old and the young, who sought and cultivated his acquaint- 
ance. 

His fondness for society, which was reciprocated by a large circle 
of neighbors and friends, served to relieve, in a great measure, the 
gloom and loneliness which often results from the loss of sight. 

He was for many years before his decease, a member of the Con- 
gregational Church. He lived on the place of his nativity, about 
lialf a mile east of the Congregational Meeting-house in "West Brook, 
now occupied by his son, Gideon Chapman. He' died October 16, 
1833, aged 80. Mrs. Jemima Chapman died in 1837, at Hudson, 
New York.

it is sufficieut to say that he shared the highest honors of his class, 
with the Hon. Roger M. Sherman. 

After he was graduated, he taught for a time in the academy of 
North Salem and also Norwalk. and continued to teach while in the 
practice of his profession. 

He studied his profession with Hon. Tapping Reeve, of Litchfield, 
and was admitted to the bar in 1795, and settled in the practice of 
law at Newtown, Fairfield county, Conn., and was repeatedly elect- 
ed the reprcsentalive of that town to the General Assembly of the 
state, and in 1817, wtis elected a member of the governor's council, 
comprising at that time twelve members. In 1818, he was elected 
judge of the superior court and court of errors, which office he held 
until his death. 

He married at Newtown, September 2, 1798, Miss Mary Perry, 
the daughter of Bennet Perry, M. D., by whom he had four chil- 
dren, three sons and one daughter. In the autumn of 1824, he re- 
moved from Newtown to New Haven, where he opened a law school, 
but which, owing to his declining health, he was obliged to relinquish ; 
and after two journeys to the Springs, and through the Canadas, he 
returned to New Haven, where he died September 25, 1825. His 
widow, Mrs. Mary Chapman, survived him nearly twenty-five years, 
and died in Brooklyn, L. I., at the residence of her son, March 21, 
1850. It has been remarked by Professor Silliman, "that he kept 
up, through life, in a remarkable degree, a fresh acquaintance with 
his collegiate studies," and by the Hon. Thomas Day, that " he pos- 
sessed a % igorous and <liscriminating mind." He was attentive to 
business, and prompt in the performance of official duty.

DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT CHAPMAN. ' 213 

born June 30, 1789, is the youngest of the sixth generation, from 
Robert, through the line of Deac. Nathanael Chapman. He com- 
menced life as a teacher. With the small avails from teaching a 
district school one term, he commenced trade. As his means in- 
creased he fitted himself out as a traveling merchant. He pursued 
his vocation with untiring zeal, energy and success. Having trav- 
ersed repeatedly the then states of the south and west, and accum- 
ulated sufficient means, he established himself as a wholesale dealer 
in dry goods and fancy articles in the city of Boston, and after some 
fifteen or twenty years of successful trade in that city, and having 
estabhshed his eldest two sons in the same business, he retired to the 
paternal homestead, in Oyster River, some ten years since, having 
in the mean time, greatly enlarged it by the addition of adjoining 
lands, and improved it by the erection of a large and substantial 
edifice and out-buildings, and enriched the lands by culture, making 
it the handsomest and best tilled farm in Old Say-Brook, and an 
honor to our distinguished ancestor, who first occupied the same site. 
Mr. Chapman married Miss Lucia Tully, the fifth daughter of Elias 
and Azubah Tully, (who was of the sixth generation from John Tully, 
who died in England in 1644 or 1645, and the fifth generation from 
his son John, the first settler of the name, in Say-Brook,) November 
3, 1814, by whom he has five children. He has represented the 
town of Say-Brook in the Legislature, and been honored by his fel- 
low-citizens with other important offices of trust.

August 22, 1785, has been twice married: 1, to Catharine Rozette, 
March 9, 1809, by whom he had six children ; 2, to Eliza (Chap- 
man) Ingersoll, widow of Jonathan IngersoU, and daughter of Titus 
Chapman, June 29, 1825, by whom he has had eight children. He 
at present resides iu the city of Brooklyn, New York, and from the 
time he left his father's house in 1801, has always been engaged in 
mercantile, commercial and moneyed concerns, either on his own ac- 
count or as an agent for others, and, in all probability, had he pos- 
sessed a miserly disposition, would now have been worth millions ; 
but such was not the bent of his mind. As an accountant, he has 
but few equals. He, many years since, published a large work en- 
titled, " Chapman's Interest Tables," a work evincing great industry 
and accuracy in figures, and which, from the time of its publication, 
has proved an efficient aid in large business transactions. Not a 
morning comes but finds him busy, in reading or writing. A few 
years since, he employed his early morning hours, in copying the 
Old and New Testament, which was completed in less than one 
year, and is now bound in quarto, a most beautiful volume. It was 
his desire to have bound with this volume, as full a genealogical 
table of his ancestors as could be gathered, that led him to solicit the 
author of this work to prepare and publish " The Genealogy of the 
Chapman Family." He has also copied the old standard New Eng- 
land version of Watts' Psalms, for which he has always evinced a 
decided preference, as superior in his view, to the modern versions.* 
He was one of the leading few who projected and organized the 
Marine Temperance Society of the Port of New York, and the 
first certificate ever presented to a sailor for signature, was written 

* Mr. Chapman thinks, (and in this opinion is not alone,) that the couplet 
of Oliver Arnold would not very inaptly apply to those modern divines who 
have undertaken to improve Watts by sundry alterations and additions. " In 
a bookseller's shop in New Haven, Arnold was introduced to Joel Barlow, who 
had, just then, acquired considerable notoriety by the publication of an altered 
edition of Watts' Psalms and Hymns. Barlow asked for a specimen of his 
talent, upon which the wandering poet immediately repeated the following 
stanza : 

" You've proved yourself a sinful cre'tur. 

You've murdered Watts and spoilt the meter ; 

You've tried the word of God to alter, 

And for your pains deserve a halter."

Nathanael Chapman. By her he has three children. Having re-

he resigned his pastoral charge at Stratford, and was dismissed. May 
16, 1839, and installed at Deep River, May 29, 1839. After serv- 
ing the latter church about eleven years and six months, he received 
a unanimous call from the Church in South Glastenbury. He was 
dismissed at Deep River, October 1, 1850, and installed at Glasten- 
bury, the 24th of the same month, where he now resides. Mr. 
Chapman's father died young, and he being left without means, was 
obliged to rely, principally, upon his own exertions, in procuring a 
collegiate and theological education. Knowing the trials of such a 
course, he has aided several young men in fitting for college, by hear- 
ing them recite in their preparatory studies, without any charge. 
Thi'oughout his entire ministry, he has been occupied, most of the 
time, in the instruction of youth, either in private classes or in select 
schools. During a period of little more than twenty years, between 
five and six hundred pupils have shared his instructions, for a longer 
or shorter period of time, over thirty of whom have entered the 
learned professions.

GENEALOGICAL NOTES OF WILLIAM CHAPMAN, ONE 

OF THE EARLY SETTLERS OF NEW LONDON, 

CONNECTICUT. 

At the commencement of these researches it was supposed that 
William Chapman, of New London, might be a near relative of 
Robert Chapman of Say-Brook, but on further investigation, no evi- 
dence has been found that they were kinsmen. It is not known from 
whence "William came. He appears first on the New London rec- 
ords, in 1657. 

In the book of town grants, appears the following : " William 
Chapman hath given him thirty ackers of upland bounded tOAvards 
the south with Mi-. Douglas his land, and towards the east with the 
small brook that leads to Jordan River, and towards the north with 
Arkaubukie* Meadow, and towards the west with a ledge of rocks 
and a tree marked on four sides." The above grant was made at a 
meeting in 1663. 

At a town-meeting, August 25, 1G91, it was " Voatcd that where- 
as William Chapman had formerly allowed him by the town three 
pounds for his sexton's place by the yeare, they now add forty shil- 
lings more and order him five pounds per year for sweeping the meet- 
ing house and galleries and ringing the^bell." 

He died the 18th of December, idw. 

The following is a copy of his will presented in the court of pro- 
bate soon after his decease. It furnishes the only clue to the names 
of his children, as they are not recorded in the town records : 

" The last Will and Testament of William Chapman, of New London. 

" T William Chapman of New London senior, being sick and weak of body, 
but threw the goodness of God, in perfect memory and good vmderstanding, do 
make this mv last Will and Testament revoking and making void all others : 



* There is some doubt about the orthography of this word.

From the records of llie court of probate, it ajipears that lie lived 
over thirty years after making his will. The inventory of his es- 
tate was exhibited in court, (the appraisal bearing date January 2, 
1669-70,) amounting to £28 Os. 6c?. 

According to the will, he had seven children.

He was a major in the Revolutionary army. The following account 
is found in Miss Caulkins' New London, page 532. " Major James 
Chaj)man of Selden's regiment, Wadsworth's brigade, was a man of 
strength and stature beyond the common standard, and as a soldier 
steady and brave. But what avail these qualities against the aim of 
the marksman, or the force of a cannon-ball ! He was slain in what 
was called the orchard fight, near Harlem, when the army was re- 
treating from New York, September 15, 1776. His son James, a 
youth of only fifteen years pf age, was with him when he fell."

the foregoing, was first lieutenant of the ship Oliver Cromwell, in

married Elizabeth Douglas, September 17, 1758, by whom he had 
four children. The following account of his death is found in Miss 
Caulkins' New London, page 577. " July 2, 1 788, Capt. John Chap- 
man and nine other persons, chiefly emigrants from Ireland, were 
drowned within twenty rods of the shore of Fisher's Island. The 
disaster was occasioned by the upsetting of two boats ; one of them 
being deeply laden, was filling with water, and her people all seizing 
hold of the other, that also filled and sank. Capt. Chapman had just 
arrived with a companj' of emigrants, (probably about twenty,) and 
some of them being sick, he was attempting to land them on the 
island, where a tent was to be erected in which they might pe^ox-m 
the necessary period of quarantine. Capt. Chapman had served in 
the Revolutionary War, both in a naval and military capacity. He 
was a brother of Major James Chapman, who fell at Harlem Heights 
in 1776, and of Lieut. Richard Chapman, slain in Fort Griswold, 
in 1781."

name of the Mr. Chajiman who was father of the above John Chapman the 
settler, I have not beeti able to learn. He lived some fifty miles from London, 
and married Johanah or Joanna Sumner. Their son John was by trade a 
weaver, having served seven years to learn, and being on a visit to Londonj 
was pressed on board a man-of-war. After some time, the ship visited Boston, 
, New England, and the said John availed himself of an opportunity to assume 
yhe liberty of which he had been deprived ; he fled and found succor in the 
abode of Samuel Alden, in what is now called Wakefield, in Rhode Island, 
where he worked at his trade. A while afterward, we find him in what is 
now North Stonington, where he married Sarah Brown, according to the town 
records, February 16, 1710."

GENEALOGICAL NOTES OF REV. BENJAMIN CHAPMAN, 
OF SOUTHINGTON, CONNECTICUT. 

The descendants of Rev. Benjamin Chapman are unable to give 
any account of his parentage. The prevailing belief among them, 
however, is that he originated from Say-Brook. The author of this 
work has taken unwearied pains to ascertain who his pai'ents were, 
but has failed. He may have been born in Say-Brook, and yet his 
name, for some cause, not have been entered in the register of births. 
It is the case with many families, that several of the older children 
are recorded, while the younger are not found there, either because 
the parents removed before their birth, or became negligent in report- 
ing their names and births to the town-clerk. In most instances, the 
writer has been able to ascertain the names and births of such as are 
not on the Say-Brook town records, from other sources. 

The following facts in regard to the subject of this brief sketch, 
have been obtained from the records of the church in Southington, 
and from his grandson, the Hon. Reuben A. Chapman, of Springfield, 
Mass. He graduated at Princeton, in the class of 1754, and was or- 
dained and installed at Southington, (then the Third Church in 
Farmington, Conn.,) March 17, 1756. He officiated as the pastor of

September 20, 1801, is an eminent lawyer in Springfield, Mass. 
Although he never graduated at college, he is a gentleman of high 
attainments in literature and science, in consequence of which, he 
was some years since admitted an honorary member of the Phi Beta 
Kappa Society of Yale College. At the time of his admission it 
was remarked in the hearing of the writer, by Professor Porter, 
of Yale College, and tlie Hon. Mr. Bates, of Massachusetts, that 
"he stands at the very head of the legal profession in Hampden 
county." 

It is no small tribute to his legal abilities, that he was appointed, 
in 1849, in company with Judge Curtis and the Hon. N. J. Lord, to 
revise and refoi-m the proceedings in the Massachusetts courts of 
law, and that with those gentlemen, he prepared the code of practice 
now in use in that state.

" Loving Friends, Robert Chapman and Thomas Hurlburt, my love re- 
membered to you both, these are to inform, that as you desired me when I 
was with you and Major ]\Iason at Seabrooke, two years and an half ago, to 
consider and to call to mind the passages of God's Providence at Seabrooke, 
in and about the time of the Pequit [Pequot] war, wherein I have now 
endeavored to answer your Desires, and having rumaged and found some 
old papers then written, it Avas a great help to my memory. You know that, 
when I came to you, I was an Engineer or Architect, whereof carpentry is a 
little part, but you know I never could use all the tools, for, although for my 
necessity, T was forced, sometimes, to use my shifting chissel,and my hold fast, 
yet you know I could never endure nor abide the smoothing plane ; I have 
sent you a piece of timber scored and fore-hewed, unfit to join to any hand- 
some piece of work, but seeing I have done the hardest work, you must get 
somebody to chip it and to smooth it lest the splinters should prick some men's 
fingers, for the truth must not be spoken, at all times, though, to my knowl- 
edge, I have written nothing but truth, and you may take out or put in what

LION GARDENEPv." . 

"In the year^ 1635 I Lion Gardener, Engineer and Master of works of 
Fortifications in the legers of the Prince of Orange in the Low Countries, 
through the persuasion of ISIr. John Davenport, Mr. Hugh Peters, with some 
other well aiFected Englishmen of Rotterdam, I made an agreement with the 
forenamed Mr Peters, for £100 per annum for four years, to serve the com- 
pany of patentees, namely the Lord Say, the Lord Brooks, [Brook,] Sir Ar- 
thur Hazelrig, Sir Matthew Bonnington, [Bonighton,] Sir Richard Salting- 
stone, [Saltonstall,] Esquire Fenwicke, and the rest of their company, [I say,] 
I was to serve them, only in the drawing, ordering and making of a City, 
Towns or forts of defence. And so I came from Holland to London, where 
I was appointed to attend such orders, as Mr John Winthrop Esquire, the 
present Governor of Conectecott, was to appoint whether at Pequit [Pequot] 
river or Conectecott and, that we should choose a place, both for the conve- 
nience of a good harbor, and also for capableness and fitness for a fortification. 
But I landing at Boston the latter end of November, the aforesaid Mr Win- 
throp had sent before one Lieut Gibbons, Sergeant Willard, with some car- 
penters, to take possession of the Rivers mouth, where they began to build 
houses against the spring, we expecting according to promise, that there 
would have come from England to us 300 able men, whereof 200 should 
attend fortification, 50 to till the ground, and 50 to build houses. But our 
great expectation at the Rivers mouth came only to two men, viz. Mr Fen- 
wick, and his man, who came with Mr Hugh Peters and Mr Oldham and 
Thomas Stanton, bringing with them some Otterskin coats and Beaver, and 
skeins of wampum which the Pequits [Pequots] had sent for a present, be- 
cause the English had required those Pequits [Pec[uots] that had killed a Yir- 
ginean [Virginian] one Capt Stone with his Barks crew, in Conectecott 
River ; for they said they would have their lives and not their presents ; 
then I answered Seeing you will take Mr Winthrop to the Bay, to see his 
wife, newly brought to bed of her first child, and seeing though you say he 
shall return yet I know, if you make war with these Pequits he will not 
come hither again, for I know you will keep yourselves s£ife, as you think in 
the Bay, but myself, with these few, you will leave at the stake to be roasted 
or for hunger to be starved ; for Indian corn is now l'2s. per bushel, and we 
have but three acres planted, and if they will now make war for a Virginean 
and expose us to the Indians, whose mercies are cruelties ; they, I say, they 
love the Virgineans better than us ; for have they stayed these four or five 
years, and wiU they begin now, we being so few in the River, and have 
scarce holes to put our head in ? I pray ask the magistrates in the Bay if 
they have forgot what I said to them when I returned from Salem ? For Mr

Winthrop, Mr Haines, Mr Dudley, Mr Ludlow, Mr Humphrey, Mr Belingam, 
[Bellingham,] Mr Coddington, and Mr Nowell ; — these entreated me to go with 
Mr Humfry and Mr Peters to view the country, to see how fit it was for fortifi- 
cation, and I told them that nature had done more then half the work, already 
and I thought no foreign potent enemy would do them any hurt, but^ one that 
was near. They asked me who that was, and I said it was Capl Hunger that 
threatened them most, for, [said I,] War is like a threefooted stool, want one 
foot and down comes all; and these three feet are men, victuals and muni- 
tions ; therefore seeing in peace you are like to be famished, what will or can 
be done if War ? Therefore, I think, said I, it will be best only to fight 
against Capt Hunger, and let fortification alone awhile; and, if need here- 
after, require it, I can come to do you any service; and they all liked my 
. saying well. Entreat them to rest a while, till we get more strength here 
about us, and that we hear where the seat of war will be, may approve of it 
and may provide for it, for I had but twenty four in' all, men women, and 
boys and girls, and not food for them for two months, imless we saved our 
cornfields,* which could not possibly be if they came to war, for it is two 
miles from our home. Mr AVinthrop, Mr Fenwick and Mr Peters promised 
me that they would do their utmost endeavor to persuade the Bay-Men, to 
desist from war a year or two, till we could be better provided for it ; and 
then the Pequit Sachem was sent for, and the present returned, but full sore 
against my will. So they three returned to Boston and, two or three days 
after, came an Indian from Pequit whose name was Cocommitlms who had 
lived at Plimoth, and could speak good English ; he desired that Mr Steven 
[Stephen] Winthrop would go to Pequit, with an £ 1 00 worth of trucking 
cloth, and all other kind of trading ware, for they knew that we had a great 
cargo of goods, of Mr Pinchcon's and Mr Steven Winthrop had the disposing 
of it. And he said that if he would come he might put off all his goods, and 
the Pequit sachem would give him two horses that had been there a great 
while. Sol sent the shallop with Mr Steven Winthrop Sergeant Tille, [Til- 
ley,] (whom we called afterward Sergeant Kettle, because he put the kettle 
on his head) and Thomas Hurlburt, and three men more, charging them 
that they should ride in the middle of the River, and not go ashore till they 
had done all their trade, and that Mr Steven Winthrop should stand in the 
hold of the boat, having their guns by them, and swords by their sides, the 
other four to be, two in the fore cuddie, and two in aft, being armed in like 
manner, that so they out of the loop-holes might clear the boat, if they were 
by the Pequits assaulted ; and, that they should let but one canoe come aboard 
at once, with no more but four Indians in her, and, when she had traded, then 
another and that they should lie no longer there than one day ; and, at night 
to go out of the river; and if they brought the two horses, to take them in at 
a clear piece of land, at the mouth of the River, two of them go ashore to help 
the horses in and the rest stand ready, with their guns in their hands, if need

■were to defend them from the Pequits ; for 1 durst not trust them. So they 
went and found but little trade, and, they having forgotten what I charged 
them, Thomas Hurlburt and one more went ashore to boil the ketde, and 
Thomas Hurlburt stepping into the Sachem's wigwam, not far from the shore; 
enquiring for the horses, the Indians went out of the wigwam, and Wincum- 
bone, his mother's sister, was then the great Pequit sachem's wife, who made 
signs to him that he should be gone, for they would cut off his head ; which, 
when he perceived, he drew his sword and ran to the others and got aboard 
and, immediately, came abundance of Indians to the water side and called 
them to come ashore, but they immediately set sail and came home and this 
caused me to keep watch and ward, for I saw they plotted our destruction. 
And suddenly after came Cap' Turner and Cap' Undrill [Underbill,] with a 
company of soldiers, well-fitted to Sea-brook, and made that place their ren- 
dezvous or seat of war and that to my great grief, for said I you came hither 
to raise these wasps about my ears, and then you will take wing and tly away ; 
but when I had their commission I wondered and made many allegations 
against the manner of it, but go they did to Pequit, and as they came without 
acquainting any of us, in the River, with it, so they went against our will, 
for, I knew that I should lose our cornfield ; then I entreated them to hear 
what I would say to them, which was this ; Sirs seeing you will go, I pray 
you, if you dont load your barks with Pequits, load them with corn, for that 
is now gathered with them, and dry, ready to put into their barns and both 
you and we have need of it, and I will send my shallop and hire this Dutch- 
man's boat, there present, to go with you, and, if you cannot attain your end 
of the Pequits, yet you may load your barks with corn which will be welcome 
to Boston and to me. But they said they had no bags to load them with ; 
then said I here is three dozen of new bags, you shall have thirty of them, 
and my shallop to carry them, and six of them, my men shall use themselveS; 
fori will, with the Dutchman, send twelve men well provided; and I desired 
them to divide the men into three parts, viz two parts to stand without the 
corn and to defend the other one third part that carried the corn to the water 
side, till they have loaded what they can. And the men there in arms, when 
the rest are aboard, shall, in order, go aboard, the rest that are aboard shall, 
with their arms clear the shore, if the Pequits do assault them, in the rear, 
and then, when the General shall display his colors, all to set sail together. 
To this motion they all agreed, and I jnit the three dozen of bags aboard my 
shallop, and away they went, and demanded the Pequit Sachem to come into 
parley. But, it was returned for answer that he was from home, but, within 
three hours he would come ; and so from three to six, and thence to nine> 
there came none. But the Indians came without arms to our men, in great 
numbers, and they talked with my men, whom they knew, but, in the end, at 
a word given, they all on a sudden ran away from our men, as they stood in 
rank and file, and not an Indian more was to be seen ; and all this while, be- 
fore, they carried all their stuft' away and thus was that great parley ended . 
Then they displayed their colors and beat their drums, burnt some wigwams 



APPENDIX. 329 

and some heaps of corn, and my men carried as much aboard as they could, 
but the army went aboard, leaving my men ashore which ought to have 
marched aboard first. But they all set sail, and my men were pursued by 
the Indians and they hurt some of the Indians, and two of them came home 
wounded. The Bay-men killed not a man, save that one Kichomiquin [Cuts- 
hamequin] an Indian Sachem of the Bay, killed a Pequit, and thus began 
the war between the Indians and us in these parts. So my men having come 
home, and having brought a pretty quantity of corn with them, they informed 
me (both Dutch and English,) of all passages. I was glad of the corn. After 
this I immediately took men and went to our cornfield to gather our corn, 
appointing others to come about with the shallop and fetch it, and left five 
lusty men in the strong house with long guns which house I had built for the 
defence of the corn. Now these men, not regarding the charge, I had given 
them three of them went a mile from the house a fowling ; and, having loaded 
themselves with fowl, they returned. But the Pequits let them pass first 
till they had loaded themselves, but, at their return, they arose out of their 
ambush and shot them all three ; one of them escaped through the corn, shot 
through the leg, the other two they tormented. Then the next day I sent 
the shallop to fetch the five men and the rest of the corn that was broken 
down, and they found but three, as above said, and when they had gotten that, 
they left the rest ; and, as soon as they were gone a little way, from shore, 
they saw the house on fire. Now so soon as the boat came home, and brought 
us this bad news, old Mr Mitchell was very urgent with me to lend him the 
boat to fetch hay home from the six mile Island, but I told him they were 
too few men, for his four men could but carry the hay aboard, and one must 
stand in the boat to defend them, and they must have two more at the foot of 
the Rock, with their guns, to keep the Indians from running down upon them. 
And in the first place, before they carry any of the cocks of hay, to scour the 
meadow with their three dogs — to march, all abreast, from the lower end up 
to the Rock, and if the}' found the meadow clear, then to load their hay ; but 
this was also neglected, for they all went ashore and fell to carrying off their 
hay, and the Indians, presently, rose out of the long grass and killed three 
and took the brother of Mr Mitchell who is the minister of Cambridge and 
roasted him alive ; and so they served a shallop of his coming down the river 
in the Spring, having two men, one whereof they killed at Six Mile Island, 
the other came down drowned to us ashore at our doors, with an arrow shot 
into his eye, through his head. 

" In the 22d of February, (1637,) I went out with ten men and three dogs, 
half a mile from the house, to burn the weeds, leaves and reeds upon the 
neck of land, because we had felled twenty timber trees, which we were to 
roll to the water-side to bring home, every man carrying a length of match 
with brimstone, with him, to kindle the fire withal. But when we came to 
the small of the neck, the weeds burning, I having before this set two senti- 
nels on the small of the neck. I called to the men, that were burning the 
reeds, to come away, but, they would not until they had burnt up the rest of 

28* 



330 APPENDIX. 

tlieir matches. Presently, there starts up four Indians out of the firy reeds, 
but ran awaj^, I calling to the rest of our men to come away out of the marsh. 
Then Robert Chapman and Thomas Hurlburt, being sentinels, called to me, 
saying there came a number of Indians out of the other side of'the marsh. 
Then, I went to stop them that they should not get the wood-land; but 
Thomas Ilurlburt cried out to me that some of the men did not follow me, 
for, Thomas Kumble and Arthur Branch threw down their two guns and 
ran awa}- ; then the Indians shot two of them, that were in the reeds, and 
sought to get between us and home, but durst not come before us, but kept 
us in a half moon, we retreating and exchanging many a shot, so that Thomas 
Hurlburt was shot almost through the thigh, John Spencer in the back, into 
his kidneys, myself through the thigh ; two more were shot dead. But in 
our retreat I kept Hurlburt and Spencer still before us, we defending our- 
selves with our naked swords, or else they had taken us all alive, so that the 
two sore wounded men, by our slow retreat got home with their guns, when 
our two sound men ran away, and left their guns behind them. But, when 
I saw the cowards that left us, I resolved to let them draw lots which of them 
should be hanged, (for the articles did hang up in the hall for them to read, 
and they knew they had been published long before.) But, at the interces- 
sion of old Mr Mitchell, Mr Higgisson, [Higginson,] and Mr Pell, I did 
forbear. Within a few days after, when I had cured myself of my wound, 
I went out with eight men to get some fowl for our relief, and found the guns 
that were thrown away, and the body of one man shot through ; the arrow 
going in at the right side, the head sticking fast, half through a rib on the 
left side, which I took out and cleansed it, and preserved to send to the Bay, 
because they had said that the arrows of the Indians were of no force. 

" Anthony Dike, master of a bark, having his bark at Rhode Island, in the 
winter, was sent by Mr Vane, then Governor. Anthony came to Rhode 
Island, and, from thence, he came with his bark, to me, with a letter, where- 
in was desired that I should consider and prescribe the best way I could, to 
quell these Pequots, which I also did, and, with my letter, sent the man's rib 
as a token. A few days after, came Thomas Stanton, down the river and 
staying for a wind ; while he was there came a troop of Indians within 
musket shot laying themselves and their arms down, behind a little rising hill 
and two great trees ; which I perceiving, called the carpenter whom I had 
shown how to charge and level a gun, and that he should put two cartridges 
of musket bullets, into two sakers guns that lay about, and we leveled them 
.against the place, and I told him that he must look towards me, and when he 
saw me 'wave my hat above my head, he should give fire to both the guns : 
then presently came three Indians creeping out and calling to us to speak 
with us : and I was glad that Thomas Stanton was there, and I sent six men 
down by the Garden Pales, to look that none should come under the hills 
behind us, and having placed the rest in places convenient, closely, Thomas 
and I with my sword, pistol and carbine, went ten or twelve pole without the 
gate to parley with them. And when the six men came to the garden pales, 
at the corner, they found a great number of Indians creeping behind the fort.

or betwixt us and home, Imt rhey ran away. Now I liad said to Thomas 
Stanton, whatsoever tin-} say to you, tell nie first, for we will not answer 
them directly to any thinu. tor I know not the mind of the rest of the Enolish. 
So they came forth, calling iis nearer to them, and we them nearer to us. 
But I would not let Thomas go any further than the great stump of a tree, 
and I stood by him ; then they asked who we were, and he answered, Thom- 
as and Lieutenant. But they said he lied, for I was shot with many arrows ; 
and so I was, but my butf-coat preserved me ; only one hurt me. But when 
I spake to them they knew my voice for one of them had dwelt three months 
with us, but ran away when the Bay-men came first. Then they asked us 
us if we would fight with Niantecut Indians, for they were our friends and 
c^me to trade with us. We said we knew not the Indians, one from another, 
and, therefore would trade with none. Then they said have you fought' 
enough? We said we knew not yet. Then, they asked, if we did use to 
kill women and children ? We said they should see that hereafter. So 
they were silent a small space, and then, they said we are Pequits and have 
killed Englishmen, and can kill them as mosquetoes, and we will go to Con- 
ecteeott, and kill men, women and children, and we will take away the 
horses, cows and hogs. When Thomas Stanton had told me this, he prayed 
me to shoot that rogue, for, said he, he hath an Englishmans coat on, and 
saith that he hath killed three, and these other four have their clothes upon 
their backs. I said no, it is not the manner of a parley, but have patience 
and I shall fit them ere they go. Nay, now or never, said he ; so when he 
could get no answer but this last, 1 bid him tell them that they should not go 
to Conecticott, for if they did kill all the men and take all the rest as they 
said, it would do them nog. o(J, but hurl, for English women are lazy and can't 
do their work ; horses and cows will spoil your corn fields, and, the hogs 
their clam-l)anks and so undo them; then I pointed to our great house, and 
bid him tell them there lay twenty pieces of trucking cloth, of Mr. I'inclieons, 
with hoes, hatchets and all manner of trade, they were better fight still with 
us, and, so get all that, and then go up the river after they had killed us. 
Having heard this they were mad as dogs, and ran away ; then when they 
came to the place from whence they came, I waved my hat about my head, 
and the two great guns went off so that there was a great hubbub amongst 
them. Then two days after, came down Capt Mason and Sergeant Seeley, 
with five men more, to see how it was with us ; and whilst they were^here, 
came down a Dutch boat telling us the Indians had killed fourteen English, 
for, by that boat I had sent up letters to Conectecott, what I heard and what 
I thought, and how to prevent that threatened danger, and received back 
again rather a scoff, than any thanks for-my care and pains. 

" But as I wrote so it fell out to my great grief and theirs, for the next, or 
second day after, (as Major Mason well knows,) came down a great many 
canoes, going down the creek, beyond the marsh, before the fort, many of 
them having white shirts ; then I commanded the carpenter, whom I had 
showed to level great guns, to put in two round shot into the two sackers, 



332 



APPENDIX. 



and we levelled them at a certain place, and I stood to bid him give fire ; 
when I thought the canoe would meet the bullet, and one of them took off the 
nose of a great canoe wherein the two niaids were that were taken by the 
Indians, whom I redeemed and clothed, tor the Dutchmen, whom I sent to 
fetch them, brought them away almost naked from Pequit, they putting on 
their own linen jackets to cover their nakedness ; and, though the redemp- 
tion cost me ten pounds, I am yet to have thanks for my care and charge 
about them ; these things are known to Major Mason. 

" Then came from the Bay Mr Tille, with a permit to go up to Harford 
[Hartford,] and, coming ashore, he saw a jjaper nailed up over the gate, 
whereon was written, that no boat or bark should pass the fort, but, that 
they come to an anchor first, that I might see whether they were armed and 
manned sufficiently, and they wei-e not to land any where after they had 
passed the fort, till they came to Wethersfield^ and this I did because Mr 
Mitchell had lost a shallop, before coming down from Wethersfield, with 
three men well armed. This Mr Tille gave me ill language, for my pre- 
sumption, (as he called it,) with other expressions, too long here to write. 
When he had done I bid him go to his ware-house, which he had built before 
I came, to fetch his goods from theme, for I would watch no longer over it. 
So he knowing nothing went and found his house burnt, and one of Mr 
Plums, with others, and he told me lo my fliic that I had caused it to be done ; 
but Mr Higgison, Mr Pell, Thomas Ihirihurt and John Green can witness 
that, the same day that our house was burnt at Cornfield point, I went with 
Mr Higgisson, Mr Pell, and four men more, broke open a door and took a 
note of all that was in the house, and gave it to Mr Higgisson to keep, and 
so brought all the goods to our house, and delivered it all to them again, 
when they came for it without any penny of charge. Now the very next 
day after I had taken the goods out, before the sun was quite down and we 
all together in the great hall, all them houses were on fire in one instant. 
The Indians ran away, but, I would not follow them. Now, when Mr 
Tille had received all his goods, I said unto him, I thought I had deserved 
for my honest care both for their bodies and goods, of those that passed by 
here, at theleast better language, and am resolved to order such malpert 
persons as you are ; therefore, I wish you and also charge you to observe 
that, which you have read at the gate, ' tis my duty to God, my Master and 
my love I bear to you all, which is the ground of this had you but eyes to 
see it ; but you will not till you feel it.' So he went up the river, and when 
he came down again to his place which I called Tille's folly, now called Tilles 
point, in our sight in despite, having a fair wind he came to an anchor, and 
with one man more M'ent ashore, discharged his gun, and the Indians fell 
upon him, and killed the other and carried him alive over the river in our 
sight, before my shallop could come to them ; for, immediately I sent seven 
men to fetch the Pink down, or else it had been taken and three men more. 
So they brought her down, and I sent Mr Higgisson and Mr Pell aboard, to 
take an invoice of all that was in the vessel, that nothing might be lost.

Two days after catne to me, as I had -written, to Sir Henerie Vane, then 
governor of the Bay, I say came to me, Capt Undrill, [Underhill,] -with 
twenty lusty men, well armed to stay with me two months, or till something 
should be done about the Pequits. He came at the charge of my masters. 
Soon after came down from Harford, Major Mason, Lieut Seeley, accompa- 
nied with Mr Stone and eighty Englishmen, and eighty Indians, with a com- 
mission from Mr Ludlow and Mr Steele, and some others ; these came to go 
fight with the Pequits. But when Capt Undrill [Underhill] and I had 
seen their commission, we both said they were not fitted for such a design, 
and we said to Major Mason, we wondered he would venture himself, being 
no better fitted ; and he said the magistrates could not or would not send bet- 
ter; then we said that none of our men should go with them, neither should 
th'ey go unless we, that were bred soldiers from our youth, could see some 
likelihood to do better than the Bay-men with their strong commission last 
year. Then I asked them how they durst trust the Mohegin [Mohegan] 
Indians, who had but that year come from the Pequits. They said they 
would trust them, for they could not well go without them for want of guides. 
Yea, said I, but I will try them before a man of ours shall go with you or 
them ; and I called for Uncas, and said unto him, you say you will help 
Major Mason, but, I will first sec it, therefore send you now twenty men to 
the Bass-River, for, there went yester-night six Indians in a canoe thither ; 
fetch them now dead or alive, and then you shall go with Major Mason, else 
not. So he sent his men who killed four, brought one a traitor to us alive, 
whose name was Kiswas, and one ran away. And I gave him fifteen yards 
of trading cloth, on my own charge, to give unto his men according to their 
desert. And having staid there five or six days before we could agree, at 
last we old soldiers agreed about the way and act, and took twenty insuflicient 
men from the eighty that came from Harford, [Hartford,] and sent them up 
again in a shallop, and Capt Undrill [Underbill,] with twenty of the lustiest 
of our men went in their room and I furnished them with such things as they 
wanted, and sent Mr Pell, the surgeon, with them, and the Lord God blessed 
their design and way, so that they returned with victory to the glory of God, 
and honor of our nation, having slain three hundred burnt their fort and 
taken many prisoners. Then came to me an Indian called Wequash, and I, 
by Mr Higgisson, inquired of him, how many of the Pequits were yet alive 
that had helped to kill Englishmen ; and he declared them to Mr Higgison, 
and he writ them down as may appear by his own hand here enclosed, and I 
did as therein is written. Then three days after the fight came Waiandance, 
next brother to the Old Sachem of Long Island, and, having been recom- 
mended to me by Major Gibbons, he came to know if we were angry with 
all Indians, I answered no, but, only with such as had killed Englishmen. 
He asked me whether they that had lived on Long Island, might come to 
trade with us. I saiil no, nor we with them, for I should send my boat to 
trade for corn, and \ou have Pe(}uits with you and, if my boat should come 
into some creek, by nason of lal weather, they might kill my men, and I

APPENDIX. 



shall think that you of Long Island have done it, and so we may kill all you 
for the Pequits; but if you will kill all the Pequits that come to you and send 
me their heads, then I will give to you as to Wcakwash [Wequash,] and you 
shall have trade with us. Then said he I will go to my brother for he is the 
Great Sachem of all Long Island, and if we may have peace and trade with 
you, we will give you tribute as we did the Pequits. Then I said if you 
have any Indians that have killed lilnglish, you must bring their heads also. 
He answered not any one, and said that Gibbons, my brother, would have 
told you, if it had been so ; so he went away and did as I had said, and sent 
me five heads, three and four heads for which I paid them that brought them 
as I had jiromised. 

" Then came Capt. Stoten [Stoughton] with an army of 300 men, from the 
Bay to kill the Pequits ; but they were fled beyond New Haven to a swamp. 
I sent Wequash after them, who went by night to spy out, and the army fol- 
lowed him and found them at the Great Swamp, who killed some and took 
others, and the rest fled to the Mowhakues [Mohawks] with their Sachem. 
Then the Mohawks cut off his head and sent it to Hartford, for then they all 
feared us, but now it is otherwise, for, they say to our faces, that our commis- 
sioners meet once a year, and speak a great deal, or write a letter, and there's 
all, for they do not fight. But before they went to the Great Swamp they 
sent Thomas Stanton over to Long Island and Shelter Island to find Pequits 
there but there was none, for the Sachem Waiandance that was at Plimoth, 
when the commissioners were there, and set there last, I say, he had killed so 
many of the Pequits and sent their heads to*me, that they durst not come to 
these ; and he and his men went with the English to the swamp and thus the 
Pequits were quelled at that time. But there was like to be a great broil 
between Miantenomie [Miantunnomoh] and Unchus, [Uncas,] who should 
have the rest of the Pequits, but we mediated between them and pacified them ; 
also Unchus challenged the Narraganset Sachem out to a single combat, but 
he could not fight without all his men ; but they were pacified, though the 
old grudge remained still, as it doth appear. Thus far I had written in a 
book, that all men and posterity might know how and why so many honest 
men had their blood shed, yea, and some flayed alive, others cut in pieces, 
and some roasted alive, only because Kichamakin [Cutshamequin,] a Bay 
Indian, killed one Pequit ; and thus far of the Pequit war, whieh was but a 
comedy in comjaarison of the tragedies which hath been here threatened 
since, and may yet come, if God does not open the eyes, ears, and hearts of 
some that I think are, wilfully, deaf and blind, and think because there is no 
change that the vision fails, and put the evil-threatened day far off, for say 
they. We are now twenty to one to what we were then, and none dare med- 
dle with us — Oh ! wo be to the pride and security, Avhich hath been the ruin 
of man)' nations as woful experience has proved. 

" But I wonder, and so doth many more with me, that the Bay doth no better 
revenge the murdei'ing of Mr Oldham an honest man of their own ; seeing 
they Avere at such cost for a Virginian. The Narragansets that were at Block

Island killed him and had £50 of gold of his for, I saw it when he had five 
pieces of me and put it up into a clout and tied it up, all together, when he 
went away from me to Block Island, but the Narraganscts had it, and punch- 
ed holes into it, and put it about their necks for jewels ; and afterwards I 
saw the Dutch have some of it, which they had of the Narragansets at a small 
rate. 

" And now I find that to be true, which our friend Waiandance told me, 
many years ago, and that was this ; that seeing all the plots of the Narragan- 
sets were always discovered, he said they would let us alone till they had 
destroyed Uncas, and him, and then they with the Mowquaks and Mow- 
hakues and the Indians beyond the Dutch, and all the Northern and East- 
ern Indians, would easily destroy us, man and mother's son. This have I 
infonned the Governors of these parts, but all in vain ; for, I see they have 
done as those of Wethersfield, not regarding till they were impelled to it by 
blood, and thus we may be sure of the fattest of the flock are like to go first, 
if not altogether, and then it will be too late to read Jer. xxv. — for drink we 
shall if the Lord be not the more merciful to us for our extreme pride, and 
base security, which, cannot but stink before the Lord ; and we may expect 
this, that if there should be war again, between England and Holland our 
friends at the Dutch and our Dutch Englishmen would prove as true to us 
now, as they were, when the fleet came out of England ; but no more of that, 
a word to the wise is enough. 

" And now I am old, I would fain die a natural death, or like a soldier in 
the field with honor, and not to have a sharp stake set in the ground and 
thrust into my fundament, and to have my skin Hayed otl l)y piece meal, and 
cut in pieces and bits, and my flesh roasted and thrust down my throat, 
as these people have done, and I know will be done to the chiefest in the 
country by hundreds, if God should deliver us Into their hands, as justly he 
may for our sins. 

"I going over to Neantecut upon the eastern end of Long Island, upon 
some occasion that I had there, I found four Narragansets there, talking with 
the Sachem and his old counsellors. I asked an Indian what they were ? He 
said that they were Narragansets, and that one Miantinomic [Miantunnomoh] 
a Sachem. What came they for ? said I. He said he knew not for they 
talked seci'etly ; so I departed to another wigwam. Shortly afler came the 
Sachem Waiandance to me and said, Do you know what these came for ? No 
said I; then he said. They say I must give no more wampum to the English, 
for they are no Sachems, nor none of their children shall be in their place 
If they die ; and they have no tribute given them ; there is but one King in 
England who is over them all, and if you would send him 100,000 fathom of 
wampum, he would not give you a knife for It nor thank you. And I said to 
them, Then they will come and kill us all, as they did the Pequits ; then they 
said No, the Pequits gave them wampum and beaver, which they loved so 
well, but they sent it them again, and killed them because they had killed an 
Englishman ; but you have killed none, therefore, give them nothing. Now 
friend tell me what I shall sav to them for one of them is a great man. Then, 



336 APPENDIX. 

said I, Tell thena that you must go first to the farther end of Long Island and 
speak with all the rest and a month hence you will give them an answer. 
Mean time you may go to Mr Haines, and he will tell you what to do, and 
I will write all this now, in my book, that I have here ; and so he did, and 
the Narragansets departed, and this Sachem came to me, at my house, and I 
wrote this matter to Mr Haines and he went up with it to Mr Haines, who 
forbid him to give anything to the Narragansets, and writ to me so. And, 
when they came again they came by my Island, and I knew them to be the 
same men ; and I told them they might go liome again and I gave them Mr 
Haynes his letter for Mr Williams to read, to the Sachem. So they returned 
back again, for I had said to them that if they would goto Mantacut, I would 
go likewise with them, and that Long Island must not give wampum to Nar- 
raganset. 

" A while after this, came Miantenoraie from Block Island to Mantacut, with 
a troop of men. Waiandance being not at home ; and, instead of receiving 
presents, which they used to do, in their progress, he gave them gifts, calling 
them brethren and friends, for so are we all Indians, as the English are, and 
they say brother to one another ; so must we be one as they are otherwise 
we shall be all gone shortly, for you know our fathers had plenty of deer and 
skins, our plains were full of deer, as also our woods and of turkies and our 
coves full of fish and fowl. But these English having gotten our land, they 
with scythes cut down the grass and, with axes fell the trees ; their cows and 
horses eat the grass, and their hogs spoil our clam banks, and we shall be 
starved ; therefore it is best for you to do as we ; for we are all the Sachems 
from East to West both Moquakues and Mohauks joining with us and we 
are all resolved to fall upon them all, at one appointed day ; and therefore I 
am come to you privately, first, because you can persuade the Indians and 
Sachems to what you will, and I will send over fifty Indians to Block Island, 
and thirty to you from thence, and take an hundred of Southampton Indians, 
with an hundred of your own here; and when you see the three fires that 
Avill be made forty days hence, in a clear night, then do as we, and the next 
day fall on and kill men, women, and children, but no'cows for they will 
serve to eat till our deer be increased again. And our old men thought it 
was well. So the Sachem came home and had but little talk with them, yet, 
he was told there had been a secret consultation between the old men and 
Miantenomie, but, they told him nothing in three days. So he came over to 
mc and acquainted me with the manner of the Narragansets being there 
with his men, and asked me what I thought of it; and I told him that the 
Narraganset Sachem was naught to talk with his men secretly in his absence, 
and I bid him go home and told him a way how he might know all, and then he 
should come and tell me ; and so he did, and found all out as is above writ- 
ten, and I sent intelligence of it over to Mr Haynes and Mr Eaton ; but, be- 
cause my boat was gone from home, it was 15 days before they had any let- 
ter, and Miantenomie was gotten home before they had news of it. And the 
old men when they saw how I and the Sachem had beguiled them, and that he 



APPENDIX. 



337 



was come over to me, they sent secretly a canoe over in a moon-shine night, 
to Narraganset, to tell them all was discovered ; so this plot failed blessed 
be God and the plotter, next spring after, died as Ahab died at Ramoth Gil- 
ead. — So he to Mohegin, and there had his fall. 

" Two years after this, Ninechrat sent over a captain of his who acted in 
every point as the former ; him the Sachem took and bound and brought him 
to me, and I wrote the same to Governor Eaton, and sent an Indian that was 
my servant and had lived four years with me ; him, with nine more, I sent to 
carry him to New Haven, and gave them food for ten days. But the wind 
hindered them at Plumb Island ; then they went to Shelter Island, where the 
old Sachem dwelt — Waiandance's elder brother, and in the night they let him 
go only my letTer they sent to New Haven, and thus these two plots were 
■disdovered ; but now my friend and brother is gone who will now do the 
Uke? . '-■- 

" But if the premises be not sufficient to prove Waiandance a ti-ue friend to 
the English, for some may 'say he did all this out of malice to thePequits and 
Narragansets ; now I shall prove the like with respect to the Long Islanders, 
his own men. For I being at Mantacut, it happened that for an old grudge 
of a Pequit, who was put to death at Southampton, being known to be a mur- 
derer, and for this his friends bear a spite against the English. So as it came 
to pass at that day I was at Mantacut a good honest woman was killed by 
them at Southampton, but, it was not known then who did this murder. And 
the brother of this Sachem was Shinacock. Sachem could or would not find 
it out. At that time Mr Gosmore and Mr Howell, being magistrates, sent an 
Indian to fetch the Sachem thither ; and, it being in the night, I was laid 
•down when he came and being a great cry amongst them, upon which all 
the men gathered together, and, the story being told, all of them said the 
Sachem should not, for said they they will either bind you or kill you, and 
then us, both men, women and children ; therefore let your brother find it 
out, or let them kill you and us, we vnU. live and die together. So there was 
a great silence for a while and then the Sachem said, Now you have all done 
I Avill hear what my friend will say, for [he] knows what they will do. So 
they waked me as they thought, but I was not asleep, and told me the story, 
but I made strange of the matter and said. If the Magistrates have sent for 
you why do you not go '? They will bind me or kill me saith he. I think 
so said I if you have killed the woman, or know of it and did not reveal it; 
but you were here and did it not. But was any of your Mantauket Indians 
there to day ? They all answered not a man these two days, for we have 
inquired concerning that already. Then said I, did none of you ever hear 
any Indian say he would kill EngUsh ? No said they all ; then I said, I shall 
not go home till to morrow, though I thought to have been gone so soon as 
the Moon was gone up, but I will stay here till you all know it is well with 
your Sachem ; if they bind him, bind me, and if they kill him kill me. But 
then you must find out him that did the murder and all that know of it, them 
they will have and no more. Then they with a great cry thanked me, and I 

• 29 



338 APPENDIX. 

wrote a small note, with the Sachem, that they should not stay him long in 
their hands but let him eat and drink and be gone, for he had his way before 
him. So they did and that night he found out four that were consenters to 
it, and knew of it, and brought them to them at Southampton and they were 
all hanged, at Hartford, whereof one of these was a great man among them, 
commonly called the Blue Sachem. 

" A further instance of his faithfulness is this ; about the Pequit war time 
one WilHam Hamman [Hammond] of the Bay, killed by a Giantlike Indian 
towards the Dutch. I heard of it and told AVaiandance, that he must kill him 
or bring him to me ; but he said it was not his brother's mind, and he is the 
Great Sachem of all Long Island, likewise the Indian is a Alighty Great 
man, and no man durst meddle with him, and hath many friends. So this 
rested until he had killed another one Thomas Farrington. After this the 
old Sachem died, and I spake to this Sachem again about it, and he answer- 
ed, He is so cunning that when he hears that I come that way a hunting, that 
his friends tell him and then he is gone. But I will go at some time when 
no body knows of it, and then I will kill him : — and so he did — and this 
was the last act which he did for us, for in the time of a great mortality 
among them he died, but it was by poison ; also two-thirds of the Indians 
upon Long Island died else the Narragansets had not made such havock here 
as they have, and might not help them. — And this I have written, chiefly, for 
our good that we might consider what danger we are all in, and, also to de- 
clare to the countrj", that we had found an heathen, yea, an Indian, in this 
respect to parallel the Jewish Mordecai. But now I am at a stand for all 
we English would be thought and called Christians ; yet though I have seen 
this before spoken, having been there twenty four years, in the mouth of the 
premises yet I know not' where to find, or whose name to insert to parallel. 
Ahasuerus lying on his bed and could not sleep, and called for the chronicles 
to be read ; and when he heard Mordecai named, said, what hath been done 
for him ? But who will .say as he said, or do answerable to what he did ? 
But our New England twelve-penny chronicle is stuffed with a catalogue 
of the names of some as If they had deserved immortal fame ; but the right 
New England military worthies are left out for want of room as Maj. Mason, 
Capt. Undrlll, [Underhill,] Lieut. Sielly, [Seeley,] and who undertook the 
desperate way and design to Mistick Fort, and killed 300 burnt the fort, and 
took many prlsonci-s, though they are not once named. But honest Abram 
thought it no shame to name the confederates that helped hun to war, when 
he redeemed his brother Lot ; but Uncas of Mstick, aud Waiandance at the 
Great Swamp and ever since your trusty friend, is forgotten, and for our 
sakes persecuted to this day with fire and sword, and Ahasuerus of New 
England is still asleep, and if there be any like to Ahasuerus, let him remem- 
ber what glory to God and honor to our Nation hath followed their -ndsdom 
and valor. Awake ! awake Ahasuerus, if there be any of th}' seed or spirit 
here, and let not Ilaman destroy us as he hath done our Mordecai. And, 
although there hath been much blood.shed, in these parts, among us, God and 



APPENDIX. 339 

we know it came not by us. But if all must drink of this cup that is threat- 
ened, then shortly the King of Sheshack shall drink last , and tremble and fall 
when our pain will be past. Oh that I were in the countries again, that in 
their but twelve year truce, repaired cities and towns made strong forts and 
prepared all things, needful agaiust a time of war like Solomon. I think 
the soil hath almost infected me but what they or our enemies will do, here- 
after, I know not. I hope I shall not live so long to hear or see it, for I am 
old and out of date, else I might be in fear to see and hear that, I think, will 
ere long come upon us. 

" Thus far our tragical story, now to the comedy. When we were at sup- 
per in the great hall they (the Pequits) gave us alarm to draw us out three 
times before we could finish our short supper, for we had but httle to eat, but 
you know that I would not go out ; the reason you know. 2ndly. You 
Robert Chapman, you know that when you and John Bagley were beating 
samp at the Garden Pales, the sentinels called you to run in for there was 
a number of Pequits creeping to you to catch you ; I hearing it went up to 
the redoubt and put two cross-bar shot into the two guns that lay above, and 
levelled them at the trees and boughs and gave order to John Frend and his 
man to stand, with hand-spikes to turn them tliis or that way, as they should 
hear the Indians shout, for they should know my shout from theirs, for it 
should be very short. Then I called six men, and the dogs, and went out 
running to the place, and keeping all abreast in sight close together. And 
when I saw my time I said, stand ! and called all to me saying, Look on me ; 
and when I hold up my hand, then shout as loud as you can, and when I 
hold down my hand then leave ; and so they did. Then the Indians began a 
long shout, and then went off the two great guns and tore the limbs of the 
trees about their ears so that divers of them were hurt, as may yet appear, 
for you told me when I was up at Hartford this present year '60 in the month 
of September, that there is one of them lycth above Harford, that is fain to 
creep on all fours, and we shouted once or twice more ; but they would not 
answer us again, so we returned home laughing. 

" Another pretty prank we had with three great doors of ten feet long and 
four feet broad, being bored full of holes, and driven full of long nails, as 
sharp as awl blades, sharpened by Thomas Hurlburt. These we placed in 
certain places where they should come, fearing lest they should come in the 
night and fire our redoubt or battery and all the place, for we had seen their 
footing, where they had been in the night, when they shot at our sentinels, 
but could not hit them for the boards ; and in a dry time and a dark night 
they came as they did before and found the way a little too sharp for them ; 
and as they skipped from one they trod upon another, and lefl the nails and 
door dyed with their blood, which you know we saw the next morning laugh- 
ing at it. 

" And this I write that young men may learn, if they should meet with 
such trials as we met with there, and have not opportunity to cut off their 
enemies ; yet they may with such pretty pranks preserve themselves from 
danger — for policy is needful in war as well as strength."

NOTE B. 



The following statement in regard to the lands of the Hon. Robert Chap- 
man the settler, has been furnished by George H. Chapman, Esq., the young- 
est of the descendants of the fifth generation, who now occupies the Old 
Homestead, in Oyster River, Old Saybrook : 

" The Original Homestead of Robert the settler, judging from the vague 
boundaries described in the lay-out, must have been a tract of four or five 
hundred acres. The features of the land are such that within the compass of 
such bounds, there are now thirty houses. The limits were, east on Oyster 
River, north on the Big Hill, west on the Little Hill, and south on the Sound 
or sea-shore. These are very natural boundaries, and encompass a tract 
fenced by a creek one hundred feet wide on the east, by the deep waters of 
Long Island Sound on the south, by a creek and ridge of high land on the 
west, and by a steep hill from fifty to one hundred feet, abrupt rise, on the 
north. The spot was well chosen, being a perfectly level tract of good soil, 
no where elevated much above the sea, and abounding with the purest water 
by sinking wells ten or twelve feet. His first house was built about in the cen- 
ter of this tract of level land, from which a few minutes' walk would bring him 
to the shore, stored with shell-fish of all kinds, and which, to this day, yields 
thousands of bushels yearly. The creeks at that day must have been replete 
with plenty of salmon and shad. Many of the old pear and apple trees, of 
enormous growth, have been In full bearing within the memory of the writer, 
which were planted by Robert, our common ancestor. His favorite lot was 
an Indian settlement, disforested and cultivated by the natives, when first vis- 
ited by him. The soil is now full of shells and arrow-heads, and remains of 
warriors have been disinterred in several instances. This lot is still in the 
family, and rented to the public In the seasons for surf-bathing and sea-shore 
recreations, being fitted up for that purpose. ' It Is, indeed, a most desirable 
place to visit In warm weather, having In front, a space of about one hundred 
acres of strand, which at low water is bare, and forms hard and safe riding 
ground, and at high tide Is covered equally over the whole space, with about 
four feet of water, pure from the ocean, without a spot in the whole tract 
where the most timid could get beyond a safe footing. From a gallery, erected 
on the shore, a view of over sixty miles may be had up and down Long 
Island Sound ; that is, large ships may be seen distinctly, thirty miles each 
way. Such was the resting-place of our Grand Progenitor. His youngest 
son, Nathanael, succeeded to the domicile, and died in the first house. His 
grandson Caleb was also born and died under the first roof, having rebuilt 
the house in 1 740, covering the same In part, with the old roof boards. His 
great-grandson Elisha was born in the rebuilt house the same year, and died at 
the same spot in June, 1825, aged nearly eighty-five years. His great-great- 
grandson George Henry was born in the same mansion in 1789, and by the 
grace of God, is still living, aged sixty-five. Each son has been at the death- 



APPENDIX. 341 

bed of his father, and buried him out of sight, and administered upon his af- 
fairs. Through this long line of ancestry and space of time, each hung upon his 
father's lips, receiving the legends of the family, nothing doubting. George 
H. made his father's house his home thirty-five years, until the decease of his 
father Elisha, and never heard any variations in the traditions handed down. 
Elisha never had any other house, until the age of forty-four, but his fother 
Caleb's house ; was taken care of by his grandmother, the wife of Nathanacl, 
until the age of ten, and doubtless remembered the account of Robert, directly 
from her. She, very probably, was acquainted with the first settler himself, 
or must have heard his history directly from her husband, Nathanael. When 
it is considered how much interest all reflecting minds take in the place of 
their- births, and more especially, when every spot where they have lived, 
called home, must have been familiar to a long line of ancestry, and the al- 
most unbroken communication of one to another, from the present time, back 
to the emigration of the first settler' from the fathei'-land, two hundred and 
twenty years ago, there remains not a doubt in the writer's mind, but the 
story so often told for so long a time, so true to itself, is a correct tradition, 
that our common ancestor was a citizen of Hull, Yorkshire, England, and lefl 
that city at the age of eighteen years; that his father was a soap manufac- 
turer by trade, in that city, and that he had a brother, who perished in the 
wars in Flanders.'

Connecticut, in New England, husbandman, being aged and under bodily

weakness and infirmities, but, yet of sound mind and memory, thanks be 
given unto God therefor, calling to mind the mortality of my body, and, 
knowing that 'it is appointed for all men once to die,' and concluding my 
departure is at hand, do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament. 
Principally, and first of all, I give and recommend my soul into the hands 
of God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, hoping for acceptance through Jesus 
Christ, And my body I order to be buried in a decent Christian manner, 
at the discretion of my Executors, nothing doubting but at the General Res- 
urrection, I shall receive the same again by the mighty power of God, and as 
touching such worldly estate, wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in 
this life, I give, devise and dispose of the same in the following manner, and 
tarm ; my just debts and funeral charges being first paid out of my personal 
estate. 

" Imprimis, I give and bequeath to Hannah, my dearly belo\ed wife, one 
third part of my personal estate forever (except what is hereafter excepted,) 
I do also give unto her the use and improvement of one third part of my 
houseing and land, at Oyster River, on the south side of the country road, 
bounded north on the countrj- road, east by the land of Samuel Chapman 
and Joseph Chapman, south on the sea and Hagar's Creek, from thence run- 
ning northward to the Head of said Creek, then eastward by the land and 
meadow of Joseph Chapman and Joshua Bushnell, during her widowhood. 

•'Item, I give and bequeath to my son Nathanael all the remainder of my 
farm at Cook's Hill lying on both sides of the country road, part of which I 
have before given him by deed of gift, and also all that parcel of my meadow, 
on the west side of Hagar's creek, between the creek and the sea, running 
westward to the meadow of Thomas Xorton (except two acres hereafter dis- 
posed of) together with the privilege of carting his hay from the meadow, 
through that part of my land called the South field, at such time and place as 
may least damage the improvement of said field, all which I give to him his 
heirs and assigns forever. 

" Item, I having already given to my son Daniel Chai)man fifteen hundred 
acres right, in the Township of Hebron, and also a fifty pound right in the 
Oyster River Quarter, I do now also give him the whole of my divisions of 
land, already laid out at the Head or branches of Deep River, in Oyster 
River Quarter in Say-Brook abovesaid and also a division of thirty acres 
agreed on to be laid out in Oyster River and all my right in the undivided 
land in Pattaconk creek, and two acres of my meadow on the West side of 
Hagar's creek, said two acres to be taken off at that end of the meadow, next 
to the mouth of said creek, together with the privilege of carting from said 
meadow, as is above granted to my son Nathanael. 

"Item, I give and bequeath to my son John Chapman all my lands both 
upland and meadow, at or near a place called and known by the name of 
Treacle Hill, in Say-Brook, lying on both sides of the country road. I also 
give him all my meadow at poochaug in Say-Brook, near the Island called the 



358 APPENDIX. 

Hawk's-nest, and having already given him a fifty pound right more making 
up his right one hundred pounds, I al?o give him one feather bed and bolster, 
one pillow, two blankets, two pair of sheets, my bigest gun or musket and 
my harrow with iron tooth. 

•' Item, I give and bequeathe to my son Caleb Chapman, all my houseing 
and land both upland and meadow, at Oyster River in Say-Brook aforesaid, 
on the South side of the country road, bounded East by the land of Samuel 
Chapman and Joseph Chapman, South on the sea and Hagar's Creek, then 
running by the Creek to the Head of it, then running Eastward by this mea-. 
dow and upland of Joseph Chapman and Joshua Bushuell, reserving only the 
use of one third part of the aforesaid lands and housing for my wife during 
her widowhood. I also give him all my land, in the Great orchard, and all 
my land at Clapboard Hill in said Say-Brook, and a fifty pound right in the 
Oyster River (Quarter, all which estate I give him freely to enjoy forever 
with this proviso or consideration, viz. that he pay or cause to be paid, to his 
sisters, the several legacies which I shall in an instrument hereafter order. 
I also give to my son Caleb one yoak of oxen and Irons, one chain one scythe 
and tackling one ax and howe and my small gun and sword. 

'' Item, I give to my daughter Mary, one half of my land at a place called 
Old Iron Mine Plain, in Say-Brook, which I value at forty pounds, and, hav- 
ing already given her, the value of fifty-four pounds. I do now give her six 
pounds to be paid her by my son Caleb, within a year after my decease, 
which will make up her portion one hundred pounds. 

" Item, I give to my daughter Hannah, the other half of my laud at the 
Old Iron Mine Plain, which 1 value to her at forty pounds. I also give unto 
her the money which is due unto me by bond from John Bushnell, together 
with the interest thereof. I do also give unto her such a part of my personal 
estate as shall (at the price it shall be valued at in the Inventory of my es- 
tate) make up her portion the full sum of one hundred pounds. 

'' Item, I give and bequeath, to my daughter Anne, all the residue of my 
personal estate, which is not otherwise particularly disposed of in this will, 
which she is to receive at the price it shall be valued at, when apprized ac- 
cording to law. And I do hereby order my son Caleb to pay unto her such 
a sum as shall make up her portion one hundred pounds, one half of which 
sum I order him to pay her, when she shall arrive at the age of eighteen years, 
the other half when she shall accomplish the age of twenty-one years. 

•' Item, I give unto my four sons, before named, all my wearing apparel, to 
be equally devided between them. 

•' Item, I give to my wife the use of my Great Biljle during her life and 
after her decease I give it to my son Nathanael. 

" Lastly, I do hereby nominate, constitute and appoint my dearly beloved 
wife Hannah & my two sons, Nathanael Chapman and John Chapman, to be 
executrix and executors of this my Last Will and Testament, and I do hereby 
utterly disallow, revoke, and disannul all former testaments, wills, legacies or

NOTE F. 

A Brief Outline of the Life of Dr. Timothy M. Cooley, D. D., 

OF Granville, Mass., who married Content Chapman. 

[.See No. 131.] 

" Timothy Mather Cooley, D. D., was born at Granville, Mass., Mai-ch 
13, 1 773, and was the seventh in descent from Benjamin Cooley of Springfield, 
and seventh.in maternal descent from Rev. Richard Mather of Dorchester. At 
the age of five years, (in 1778,) he was dangerously sick and given over by 
physicians. A brother and sister died of the same fever, in one week, and 
his father at the burial of the latter, looked out a place for another grave, 
which he supposed would soon be needed for this son. By the blessing of 
God on the care and simple means used by a pious mother, he was, after many 
weeks restored to health. This incident gave a shape to his whole future 
course of Vfe. Being left in frail health, for some years, he was led to form 
habits of great simplicity in diet, and instead of meats and condiments a simple 
bowl of milk, with fruit and bread, has through life, formed the principal 
meal, and he was never confined to his room hy sickness, one dun, till he had 
passed the age of fourscore years. 

" At the age of twelve, being intensely anxious for an education, he pro- 
cured a grammar and commenced the study of the Latin language without 
a teacher. His father despairing of seeing him a robust farmer, as he in- 
tended, committed him to a private teacher; and, in 1788, he eut(,>red Yale 
College and was graduated with honors in 1792. After graduation he taught 
a Select School one year, in New Haven, and one in Litchfield. He studied 
Theology with Rev. Charles Backus, D. D., of Somers, and was licensed in 
May, 1795, by the Association of New Haven County, and preached the 
first Sabbath thereafter in his native place of Granville, and then, by 
previous arrangement, the ensuing sununer, in Salisbury, Conn. Receiving 
a call from both churches, that from Granville was accepted, and he was or- 
dained Feb. 3d, 179G, in a place which had been, for twenty years a moral

■waste. On May G, 1 79G, he was connected In marriage with Content Chap- 
man, only child of Isaac Chapman, who fell in the War of the Revolution, 
when this daughter was only six months old. 

" East Granville, though a barren waste for years, by the blessing of God 
on his own institutions, became a faithful field. During the fifty-eight years 
which have intervened since the settlement of Dr. Cooley, the church has been 
blessed with ten precious Revivals of Religion. In 1 798, there were seventy 
hopeful conversions and the Church was doubled. In 181G, especially, in 
the Bible Class, whom there were eighty hopeful conversions. In 1823, was a 
revival which commenced on New Year's eve. In connexion with a Literary 
exercise in the School, which resulted in twenty-three hopeful conversions. 

" Other harvest seasons have been granted, of greater or more limited ex- 
tent. Besides the supervision of common schools as town committee for 
forty-eight years and of Higher Institutions, the greater part of the time, as 
many as eight hundred pupils received Instruction from his lips, of whom 
more than sixty became ministers of the gospel, against none of whom has 
there been a report of heresy or innxiorallty. Not a few of his pupils have 
been members of Congress, Judgfes, Officers In Colleges and other hlgb 
places of usefulness. . The number of sermons preached by him are about 
8,000, having attended about 1,500 Bible Class Lessons." 

Dr. Cooley has been somewhat distinguished as an author. Publications 
of his, more than sixty in number, though mostly brief, have come from the 
press. Among which are the following. 

In 1 794. " Stanzas on the Death of the Printer's Lovely Child." Poem, 
» The African Slave." " Plea for the Bible," published in Buell & Collins' 
Paper, at Litchfield.

great Interest and promise." Also Sermon at the Funeral of Curtis P. Baker,

Cooley is now (April, 1854) eighty years of age, and still performs all the 
duties of his Pastorate with efficiency and to the acceptance of his people, 
among whom he has ministered about fifty -nine years. A rare example, re- 
taining the full possession of his faculties, his eye not dimmed, nor his 
natural force oblated."

NOTE G. 

The Life of Kev. Robert H. Chapman, D. D., (see No. 823,) fur- 
nished BY HIS Son, Rev. Robert H. Chapman, of Taladega, Ala- 
bama.* 

The subject of this article was the second son of the Rev. Jedediah Chap- 
man, a distinguished minister of the Presbyterian Church, and one of Its 
Fathers in this country. His instrumentality in extending its stretch and 
influence, was marked and deep. His impress, especially in its missionary 
features, has been more abiding than that of most of his cotcmporaries. He 
led the van as regards this noble enterprise, in the North-West ; the Great 
Head of the Church blessed his efforts in a signal manner ; for he lived to 
see whole Synods and nameless Presbyteries, serving God and his Church, 
where he had stood, the solitary pioneer of the General Assembly. The 
Rev. Jedediah Chapman was a native of East Haddam, Conn., and a grad- 
uate of Yale College in the class of 17G2. He became a member of the 
Presbytery of New York, early in his ministry ; soon the Pastor of the church 
of Orangedale, New Jersey. He continued there more than thirty years ; 
after which he removed to Western New York, where he labored for thir- 
teen years. He was the first Pastor of the church of Geneva, and the senior 
Pastor thereof, at the time of his death in 1814. His second son, the subject 
of this article, was born at Orangedale, N. J., March 2, 1771. His youth 
was passed amid the scenes of the Revolution, and almost upon its battle 
ground ; for, as all persons familiar with Revolutionary history know, that 
portion of the state of New Jersey was strenuously contended for by the

press, and is therefore unavoidably placed in the Appendix.

conflicting parties, and was sometimes within tlie lines of the one foree and 
then of the other. Its proximit)- to New York, then in possession of the 
enemy, made it a point of warfare and of danger. The father of Dr. Chap- 
man was devoted in his attachment to the interests of his country ; was con- 
stant and unremitting in his efforts with his flock ; and, doubtless, it was much 
owing to his personal and ministerial influence that, almost to a man, the 
congregation and church to which he ministered were decidedly whig, through 
the War of the Revolution. His father's family and their' interest, were 
oftentimes in eminent peril, and the father himself was not unfrequently, 
compelled to retire from his family and flock, as, to the loyalists, he was pe- 
culiarly offensive, from the decision of his course and its influence upon those 
under his ministrations ; — but these intervals were spent in strewing broad- 
cast upon the human mind, the seeds of religious truth. Sometimes he was 
•with the American army, as temporary chaplain, urging the citizen-soldier 
to be faithful to himself and true to his God and country ; at other times, urg- 
ing the same views in the farm-house, and amid the hills and valleys of that 
beautiful land. For this office and duty he was peculiarly fitted ; these prin- 
ciples grew with his growth, himself the descendant of the Puritan, the blood 
of the Huguenot mingled in his veins ; and long years, and for generation 
after generation, these principles had been fostered and encouraged, by deeds 
of daring and self-sacrifice, out of regard to principle and love for God's 
truth, which long marked his pious ancestry. Such a one it is difficult to 
enslave ; with sucii a one, the rights of conscience are always sacred and 
dear. There are numerous family legends of his personal trials, high moral 
daring and narrow escapes from imminent danger, all of which evince his un- 
swerving piety and deep devotedness to God and his church. They exhibit, 
too, his love to the race of man, and his deep devotion to his country's interests, 
advancement and honor. Blessed with such a parent and trained in such a 
school, the subject of this article grew up deeply imbued with these principles 
of benevolence, patriotism and piety. He was carefully educated, and at an 
early age, became the pupil of that devoted patriot and man of God, the 
learned Dr. John Witherspoon. He passed through his college coirrse at 
Nassau Hall, with great credit, and was admitted to the degree of Bachelor 
of Arts, at the early age of eighteen years. He graduated in 1 789, and was 
the classmate of Drs. Hosack, Dickerson, and the Hon. Silas Wood, with 
whom he enjoyed an uninterrupted friendship during their long and brilliant 
career. It was a class, few in numbers, but possessed of fine powers and 
rich attainments, destined to exert a wide-spread influence in the respective 
spheres on which they entered and became engaged. From a youth, and 
during his college course, the subject of this article was remarked for his 
deep reverence for divine things, his high-toned morality, his purity and love 
of truth. After graduation, he returned to the home of his father, where he 
spent a year in judicious reading. His pathway of life was all unmarked, 
but he felt that he could not err, in storing his mind and diseiplInin<T his fac- 
ulties ; that he would thereby be the better prepared foi' the battle of life.

whatever might be its sphere. During this year of quiet, unostentatious pur- 
suit, his mind became deeply impressed with the subject of religion ; the 
worth of the soul; its need of a Saviour, and the infinite righteousness which 
He alone can bestow. Such had been the purity of his life, such his pres- 
ervation from outward sins, that partial friends deemed him one renewed in 
early childhood. His own mind was inclined to the same opinion, and to a 
resting on a conscience void of offense, and a life, to human view, at least, 
wholly blameless. This snare of the adversary (for in his case it was a 
snare) was torn asunder by the Spirit of God. His deep sleep was broken, 
and under the Spirit's teaching he beheld himself a lost and guilty sinner, 
ready to perish. His convictions of sin were deep and pungent ; his sense of 
hardness of heart and deep defilement, acute ; there was an abiding sense of 
the deep need of a better righteousness than his own ; an appreciation of the 
Sa\aour's freeness and fullness, and an appreciation of Christ ; a heart-felt 
reception of him in all his offices, and a yielding of the whole heart's trust, 
which betokened the setting of the Almighty's seal and the renewing of the 
Holy Ghost. From that hour there was with liim no hesitation as to the path 
of duty — the avocation of his future life. He gave himself to the minis- 
try of reconciliation, and when his good old father, willing to try hisdevoted- 
ness, or, it may be, swerved for the moment, from what was before his be- 
loved son, spoke of the deep trials, abasement and sacrifice that then awaited 
the minister of Christ, the son replied in the language of the apostle, " Woe is 
me if I preach not the gospel." That father and son have long been before 
the throne, and by eternity's clear light, have contrasted the sufferings, 
which were but for a moment, with the exceeding great reward which has, of 
grace, followed, and as they have drank of the Saviour's smile and feasted 
in the bliss that attends his presence, have, doubtless, praised tiie grace by 
which they were sweetly drawn to devote the energies of their early life to 
the ministry of reconciliation. The younger Chapman at once entered on 
his theological course, which was thorough and ample. After spending three 
years therein, he became connected with the College of New Bruns'.vick, as 
an instructor, with a view, mainly, to the advantages of its extended library, 
in pursuing his theological studies. In 1 793, he was licensed to preach the 
everlasting gospel, and embarked all his living energies in that soul-elevating 
and heart-consoling occupation, and for forty years he served the God of his 
fathers and of the church which he hath redeemed, in that high vocation. 
The seeds of truth, through his instrumentality, have been scattered far and 
wide. The cold north and the sunny south, have alike witnessed his labors 
of love, his deep devotedness, the fervency of his prayers, and the stren- 
iiousness of his efforts in winning souls back to holiness and God. Many, 
through his instrumentality, have been rescued from the thraldom of Satan. 
He has many spiritual sons who, as living ministers, are now throughout the 
length and breadth of this wide land, proclaiming from many a sanctuary, the 
unsearchable riches of Christ and his grace. The first pastoral charge of Dr,

uously. He became its pastor in 1796. The 14th of February, 179(J, he 
married Miss Hannah Arnette, of Elizabcthtown, N. J., with whom he lived 
in wedlock thirty-seven years. She was, emphatically, a pastor's wife, and 
greatly aided him in his labors of love and of Christian usefulness. For 
many years, Ur. Chapman was settled in the north, and was the Pastor of 
the First Presbyterian Church of Cambridge, N. Y., where several of his 
children were born, and where his ministry was greatly blessed. The growth 
of the church, under his ministrations, was gradual yet constant. The writer 
has often heard him speak of the fact that God, in his goodness and grace, 
had so ordered it, that but one or two instances of sacramental service and 
of connecting with the church were, under his ministry, unimproved. More 
or less with every such opportunity, enrolled themselves soldiers of the cross- 
God did not leave himself without a witness of the power of his truth, and of 
the faithfulness of his servant. This, in a ministry of forty years, diligently 
and constantly pursued, is a most interesting fact, and one full of power and 
fraught with momentous results. The larger part of Dr. Chapman's labors 
in the north, were with the people of Cambridge ; here was his most extended 
pastorate, and doubtless here was the most extended harvest of souls, under 
his instrumentality, in the north. Many a jewel was here gathered unto his 
Master's crown. For long periods of time the church was in a revival state. 
The largest number gathered into the church at any one time, was sixty- 
one. The seed was sown in tears and with fervent prayers ; the gathering 
of the sheaves was with joy and rejoicing. But the Head of the Church had 
other purposes of love and grace, and profitable as was this connection to 
souls ; pleasant and dear as were these spiritual ties, they were soon to be 
broken. In the year 1811, unsolicited on liis part, and in fact, much to his 
surprise, he was unanimously elected President of the University of North 
Carolina, aud warmly and earnestly solicited to take the charge thereof. 
This post of distinction and usefulness, was tendered him freely and without 
the agency of friends, and was accompanied with proofs of confidence, affec- 
tion and high appreciation. The Legislature of the State elected him a mem- 
ber of its Board, and the " Senatus Academicus" of the University tendered 
him its honorary distinction of Doctor of Divinity, a title and distinction then 
but rarely bestowed, and betokening in its bestowal, much more than has 
been connected with it of late years. This distinction he from motives of 
dehcacy declined and waived ; but the post of duty and labor, after great and 
sore trial in separating himself from the beloved people of his charge, he felt 
constrained to accept. The people of Cambridge were devotedly attached to 
their pastor. To many of them he was a spiritual father, to all of them the 
loved man of God, their spiritual counselor and guide. For ten years he 
had been with them laboring for their souls' benefit and salvation. His own 
ardent affections had been thrown all ai-ound them ; to them it was a hard 
trial to give up one thus endeared, and his heart, in separating from them, 
was torn with grief and sadness ; but the duty was most clear, and the call to

its discharge loud and imperative. He yielded, though iu grief and sadness, 
telling them he must leave them, and asking them to unite in an application for 
the dissolution of the pastoral relation. They felt that he was right, that the 
call of duty was from God, and they must yield to its power. Their feelings, 
like his, were all adverse to the separation ; but, constrained by duty, they, in 
the exercise of the same self-denial with which he asked, consented to the sep- 
aration. A more affectionate, attached pastor, and a more attached, devoted 
people, were never separated, in the Providence of (4od. They parted in 
tears and with aching hearts, and for long years, the separation was keenly, 
painfully, felt and borne. Dr. Chapman removed to the Carolinas in 1812, 
and entered upon his duties as President of the University of the State. He 
found the state of literature low, and the pulse of piety lower still. In fact, 
the scat ©f the university itself was a moral desolation. But, with an energy 
for which he was remarkable, he entered upon his duties, and with the bless- 
ing of God, was soon permitted to witness a most favorable change. The col- 
lege was remodeled, the classes arranged, its course of study improved. It 
was placed on the same basis with the most thorough institutions of learning. 
Princeton was made its model, and from that period a brighter day dawned 
upon its auspices, From that day to this, a continued prosperity has marked 
this institution, and it yet, on the same basis upon which it was then placed, 
hath performed its mission of love to that State and its adjoining borders. 
There was no church then at its seat ; the tone of morals was low, and but 
little of even the form of religion was seen in all that region. The pious 
heart of him whose history we pen, was continually pained, but he sunk 
not down in despondency, but awoke heart and every energy to action ; 
a pure gospel was preached, and its claims and precious tendencies were pre- 
sented and pressed, in all faithfulness and love. God owned his truth ; it 
reached the hearts of one and another, until the materials of a church were 
prepared, gathered and united, through the instrumentality of which, many 
sons and daughters have been gathered unto the Shepherd and Bishop of 
souls. The Sabbath became to the university and village, a hallowed rest. 
The Bible, before strangely overlooked, was made a text-book in the univer- 
sity ; and a recitation on some portion of it every Sabbath, was made a stand- 
ing rule and exercise of the institution. A number of the young men were 
brought under a deep and pervasive religious influence. Some of them 
entered the ministry and are now watchmen on the walls of Zion. Others, 
in different avocations and pursuits, carried into them the seeds of truth 
sown in prayer and with tears. In several of the States, it has been the 
privilege of the writer of this article to meet with those who have told him 
that they were indebted to the seeds of truth, then sown, for the change of 
purpose, heart and life, which had, subsequently, marked them. Some of 
these cases have occurred since the death of him whose memory this article 
commemorates. Doubtless, such cases occur with every faithful Christian 
minister. A part of the fruit of his toil, he perceives while yet on the 
watch-tower of duty, but a part he knows not of, until his warfare is aceom-

plished, and his pilgrimage past ; they meet him in heaven and before their 
Father's throne, and there he learns, for tlie first time, that, under God, he 
was the instrument of their salvation. 

It was in a moral and religions aspect, especially, that Dr. Chapman was 
made a blessing to the University. It is now in lay hands, presided over 
liy the Hon. David L. Swan, LL. D. ; but the impress given to it by Dr. 
Chapman yet abides ; the incense of his hallowed influence remaineth to this 
day. " Esto perpetua," may it long abide, blessing the youth, who there 
congregate, and the State under Avhose fostering hand it is sustained. What 
Dr. Chapman was to the University, he was also to the Ecclesiastical Courts. 
His influence therein was truly benign, deep, pervasive. He was always 
there with his kind heart, his watchful eye, his far-reaching vision ; there 
with his well-stored mind, his theological astuteness, his praying heart. 

Beloved of his brethren, his voice was always heeded, and his counsels 
always appreciated and followed. Not less was he a blessing to the State. 
Throughout its breadth he was known. Almost every sanctuary enjoyed 
more or less of his labors, and the perfume of his memory yet abideth in 
all the land. Fifteen years after he was entombed, a distinguished jurist of 
the State remarked to the writer of this article, that his memory was cher- 
ished with deep fondness, and that the seeds he had scattered were yet spring- 
ing up and bearing fruit, to the praise of Divine Grace. 

In the year 1815, he received the Doctorate from the time-honored Insti- 
tution of Williams College, Mass. Dr. Chapman never forgot that he was a 
Christian minister and that his main vocation was to preach the Gospel. 
Though honored and useful in his position, as President of the University, 
his heart panted after the Church, the Society and the Pastoral relation. He 
longed to be wholly and exclusively employed in the great work of enlight- 
ening and saving souls '? 

The University had greatly prospered under his administration ; the num- 
ber of its pupils had more than doubled. The Board of Trustees had ad- 
vanced his salary a third on the sum stipulated when he accepted of the 
Presidency. He had succeeded in throwing around the Institution a fine 
moral and religious influence, in making its discipline, parental and prevent- 
ive, rather than retaliatory and vindictive, and now he felt that his work 
there was accomplished, and that it was his privilege to retire fi-orn its man- 
agement and devote himself, exclusively, to the duties and work of the 
minister of Christ I The propriety of this step was duly weighed and long 
and prayerfully considered. At length, in the year 1817, he tendered to the 
Board of Trustees, his resignation, which was, at length, accepted, though on 
the part of many with great reluctance, and his connection with the Institution 
was severed. In the summer of 18] 7, he was called to several points of 
great promise holding out fine prospects for ministerial usefulness. He, at 
length, decided for the Valley of Virginia and became the Pastor of Bethel 
Church, at that time, if the writer recollects aright, the largest Church in 
the Synod of Virginia. Here Dr. Chapman labored four or five years with 
continual manifestations of the Divine presence and with the witness of the

Holy Spirit on the fruitful ness of his ministrations. He then removed to 
the West end of the Valley, the neighborhood of Winchester, where he 
labored, and, in addition to his own Pastoral labors, supplied, for a time, at 
least, the pulpit of the Hev. Dr. Hill, then absent from Winchester, in search 
of health. Dr. Chapman was connected with the Synod of Virginia for 
some twelve years ; after which he resolved on emigrating to the West. A 
year or two devoted to preparation was spent in the hill country of North 
Carolina, during which he labored, ministerially, with untiring energy. In 
1829, he removed to the Mississippi A'alley, settling at Covington, Tenn., 
some twelve miles from its banks, within the bounds of a Frontier Presbytery, 
where his spirit, love of order, and theological attainments, were greatly 
prized and made, under God, an eminent blessing to the Church of Christ, 
in that region. Things were greatly in their forming state and Dr. Chap- 
man's influence was most benignant and happy. Here he labored and here 
he ripened for Heaven. In the Spring of 1833, he was strongly urged, by 
his Presbvtery, to represent them in the General Assembly, at a time when 
dissension and sorrow were darkening the horizon of the Presbyterian 
Church, portending the approaching storm. His Presbytery thought, in 
their appreciation of Dr. Chapman's spirit, firmness and intelligence, that he 
was the man to represent them and urged this duty upon him. He consent- 
ed, at length, little thinking, that he would no more mingle in their councils. 
He parted from his family and flock in the wilderness, expecting soon to 
return, but God had determined that they should see his face no more. Their 
next meeting, though they knew it not, Avas to be at the judgment seat of 
Christ. Though his step was shortening and the evidences of age thicken- 
ing upon him, yet such was his uninterrupted health for twenty years or 
more that he had not known a sick hour. Such his buoyancy of spirit and 
such the energy that marked him, that none supposed it was other than a 
brief separation which should make his return gladsome and enhance the 
value of his ministrations and presence. Ko gra}- hairs mingled in his locks; 
his eyes were also undimmed, nor was his natural strength, vivacity or intel- 
ligence at all abated. They parted in silence and with tears, though sus- 
tained by hope and confident expectation ; those hopes were all to be dashed 
in death ; those expectations were never to be realized. Dr. Chapman in 
fine health accomplished the journey, performing the most of it on horse- 
back ; making it, in fact, a preaching missionary tour. He met the Assem- 
bly of the church of his Fathers, engaged in its deliberations and councils, 
with his usual ability and industry, and, after its adjournment, made a 
hasty visit to his older brother, then in the city of New York. He started 
for his home in the West, anticipating a blissful reunion with his affectionate 
family and beloved flock. At Winchester, Virginia, he was arrested by dis- 
ease, and though ministered unto, assiduously, by the friends of other years, 
though unremittingly attended to by able and skillful physicians, it was all 
unavailing. Full of years and usefulness, rich in grace and good works, and 
ripened by their exercise and influence, he sunk in the arms of death, the 
18th of June, 1833, in the sixty-third year of his age, and of his ministry. 



372

the forty -first. His end was blissful, calm as a siininicrs sleep and full of 
trust and peace. His disease was constipation of the bowels, and mortifica- 
tion ensued the fourth day of the attack. The cessation of pain deceived 
him and he thought himself relieved. He had arisen as was his wont the 
morning that he died, unassisted had dressed himself, and standing by an 
open window wluch his own hand had lifted : such was his strength even 
to the last. The sun was rising and he stood contemplating the scene, as his 
physician entered, and inquired as to his state. He replied that he was bet- 
ter and that nature and the remedies had triumphed. The doctor felthis pulse, 
shook his head, and replied. " Dr. (Miapman, Imust be candid with you ; mor- 
tification has commenced and you are dying !" " Oh !" said he, " is it so ?" Not a 
muscle moved ; no trepidation followed, for in calmness he remarked to the 
physician, " I am ready to depart and give up my account. My tru.st is in the 
Holy and sinless, the Saviour Christ." ''I should have loved," continued he, 
" once more to have met with the wife of my youth and to have prayed with 
the children whom God has given us, but if he has ordered otherwise I am 
content and ready to depart." He thanked the physician for his attention 
and solicitude, and requested the presence of Eev. Dr. Hill and Thomas Allen 
Tidball, Esq., liis son-in-law, in whose house he was. Through the assist- 
ance of the last named gentleman he added a codicil to his will, making his 
wife his almoner lor religious and charitable objects and committing to her 
trust, for this purpose, and for her personal comfort, an income of some eight- 
een hundred dollars during her life. He then, turning to his ministerial 
brother, said, " I am about to enter the eternal world, and to appear before 
God. We ha\e often prayed together and labored, but my work is done. 
Read to me once more from the Word of God and let us once more bow be- 
fore him in prayer." He was asked what portion should be read. Said he, 
" It is all good, but you may read the 97th Psalm." " It begins," said he, " with 
the words, The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice ;" after which Dr. Hill led 
the devotions of that chamber of death, if death it could be called. He 
then requested Dr. Hill to preside at his interment and to have it attended with 
appropriate religious services. Said he, "Preach" a plain gospel sermon on 
the great doctrine of Justification by Faith, and the peace which it imparts;" 
and added, " Romans v. 1st, is an appropriate text." " And now," said he, 
" my friends, leave me to commune with my God and die." They waited 
around and at 9 o'clock A. M., he breathed his last. Not a doubt disturbed 
his mind, not a cloud intercepted the beamings of the Sun of Righteousness. 
Calm, resigned and peaceful his spirit departed and entered on its last 
reward. They who were present described that death chamber as the vesti- 
bule of Heaven. Thus ended the mortal life of the Rev. Robert H. Chap- 
man. Far from home, and family, and kindred, he was called on, by the 
Great Master, to lay down his ijnplements of toil and to put his armor off. 
For a moment nature struggled as he thought of the wife of his youth and 
the children whom God had given him ; it was his only earthly tie. He felt 
solemn and serious, as one should feel who was about to stand in the presence 
of the King of Kings : tlie veils of time were j)arting before him; the gales

of the eternal world were freshening on his spirit ; and yet hia mind was full 
of confidence, and filled with perfect peace. AVith his whole soul, he was 
trusting in Christ. Faithfully had he served God and his church in his gen- 
eration, and now his warfare accomplished and his work done, what was left, 
but for him to hear his Saviour's voice and to hasten to his rest ! Amid the 
friends of other days and with every want ministered unto which Christian 
sympathy could supply, he breathed his last, June 18, 1833. His mortal re- 
mains rest in the grave-yard of Winchester, Va. Neither wife nor children 
rest with them, but the noble dead are there. " The dust of the Redeemed of 
the Lord is all around him. LeGrande resteth by his side and others. 
Their dust sleepeth side by side, but their spirits arc before the throne. Dr. 
Chapman left a wife and seven children. Five others had preceded him to 
the spirit land. His wife survived him twelve years, cxemplifyiHg his labors 
of love, his pious counsels, and, at length, full of years and like a shock of 
corn fully ripe, she deceased at St. Louis, July 5, 1845.

A Lkttkr fp.om Miss Caroline Y. Reynolds of Quincy, III., 
A Granp-daugiiteu of Rev. Jedediah Chapman. 

"Rev. F. W. Chapman : 

" Dear Sir : — If the following anecdotes of ray grandfather will add 
anything to the interest of your forthcoming volume, they are at your dis- 
posal. I have frequently heard my mother repeat them, as she received 
them from the lips of her parents. Their descendants will value them, if the 
other branches of the family do not. My grandfather seldom spoke of his 
family, consequently we have no idea who our connexions arc, on his side of 
the house, and we look with some interest for your publication. I presume 
you have obtained from Rev. Mr. Murray an account of his ministerial life, 
but, if you should want any information that I can give, I will do so with 
pleasure. 

" He was a popular man and much beloved by all denominations. He was 
seized with his last illness, while in the pulpit. His last text was from 2d 
Tim. 4 : 7 : 'I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have 
kept the faith,' &c. He took. a very active part in the Revolutionary War. 
He was a firm and staunch patriot and warmly espoused the cause of his coun- 
try, using all his energies in arousing his countrymen to resist and throw off 
the British yoke. He employed his time, somewhat, in preaching on the sub- 
ject and became so obnoxious to the Royalists on account of his patriotism, 
that several rewards were offered for his head. A club of about forty took 
an oath, that they would neither eat nor sleep until he was in their power. 
Knowing that he was to preach in a certain place, on a specified evening, 
they repaired to the spot and placed themselves each side of the door for the 

32

purpose of seizing liiii\ when he caaie out. He knew their design, but his 
knowledge of it did not prevent his fulfilhng liis engagement. He preached 
one of his most thrilliug and pathetic sermons. After pronouncing the bene- 
diction, he came down from the pulpit, and walked boldly through their ranks, 
bowing and speaking to them as he passed out. They did not make the 
least movement to detain him ; the dignity of courage, or rather the power 
of the God of Freedom, restraining their angry passions. 

" At another time, he was hotly pursued, by a partj' of British soldiers, 
and was almost within their grasp. At this moment, he reached the summit 
of a hill, when he wheeled his horse around, took off his hat, waved it in the 
air and gave three cheers. From this bold maneuver the soldiers supposed 
the American army Avas in sight of him and hid from their view by the hill, 
and acting on this supposition, turned their horses and galloped away, at full 
speed, leaving my grandfather to pursue his Avay in peace and the Ameri- 
can army many miles in an opposite direction. 

" At another time the British had their quarters in his house at Orange- 
dale. At night they had a supper, and after becoming merry with their 
wine, procured an old game-cock ; setting him upon the table, they called him 
' The Rebel Preacher,' and held a court-martial over him. After going 
through with the ceremonies of a trial, the sentence of decapitation was 
passed on him. As soon as it was pronounced, old Chanticleer clapped his 
■wings and gave a loud crow, when an officer jumped up and with his sword 
cut off his head. 

" My grandfather served one year as Chaplain in Washington's army, but 
the date I do not know. La Fayette was a frequent visitor at his house, and 
when he made his last visit to this country, made many inquiries about his 
old friend. Respectfully yours, 

C. V. REYNOLDS."

A Brief Sketch of the Life of Capt. Elisha Chapman, Grand- 
son OF Robert the Settler.* 

" Capt. Elisha Chapman was born in the building now standing on the 
old paternal homestead, a few days after it was first occujDied by his father, 
in the year 1 740, and died in the same building aged iieai"ly eighty-five years, 
never knowing any other home. 

* The above sketch was furnished too late for insertion in the body of the 
work. It should have been included under the head of No. 2564. The title of 
Captain should have been there prefixed to his name, and the number of his 
children was twelve and not thirteen, as there stated. This error escaped the 



APPENDIX. 375 

" The materials of which the old mansion is composed as it now stands, 
were taken, in part, from the first house of Robert the settler, built by him 
iu 1646. Part of the roof boai'ds are now covered with white wash, proba- 
bly put on by Robert himself or his order, and are in full view, visited yearly 
. by many of the descendants, with increasing interest. It is used as an ap- 
pendage of the farm, and sheltering most of the time, two or three families of 
■workmen comfortably. Capt. Chapman enlisted in the old French War, as 
a soldier, at the age of sixteen, and seiwed four campaigns; the second and 
third years as a non-commissioned officer ; the fourth year as ensign ; was 
in the colonial line of troops at the surrender and occupancy of Montreal. 
On the breaking out of the War of the Revolution, he visited Gen. Wash- 
ington's camp near Boston, and was recommended to Governor Tiiuubull, for 
a captain's commission, which he obtained on his way home, and immediately 
raised a full company and joined Washington's army in New York ; was 
•with his company in the battle of Long Island, and composed part of the 
army which was so skillfully withdrawn from the Island, and was afterward 
stationed in a redoubt at the extreme south end of the city, probably near 
where Castle Garden now stands, and was in that position when the city was 
assaulted by the British army. Finding his company almost or quite deserted 
by the main army, which was evidently fleeing the city, and the enemy as evi- 
dently lauding far up on the East River side, he, to save his company from 
capture, strapped his own knapsack on to one of his soldiers by the name of 
Ebenezer Ingham, a man of a religious turn of mind and of Herculean 
strength, and who volunteered to carry the pack of his captain in addition to 
his own, that his commander might be more at liberty to enforce discipline in 
the hasty retreat, which was eflected in Indian file under cover of the North 
River shore, a broken ground until reaching the woods in the rear of the city, 
just in time to cover themselves from the advance of the British forces, al- 
though fired upon without harm, except the soldier can-ying the packs, who 
was struck by a musket shot which perforated one pack and lodged in his 
Bible within the other. Probably this might be the last man leaving the city 
in that memorable retreat, who was not captured by the enemy.* They soon 
overtook the rear of the American army, and organizing a rearguard, which 
continued the retreat to Harlem, and next day to White Plains, made a suc- 
cessful stand, where was fought the battle known as ' the Battle of White 
Plains.' 

" Serving out tliat campaign and term of enlistment, he received a second 

notice of the author in reading the proof, and therefore the correction is entered 
here. It is also proper to state that in giving the outline sketch of his son 
George H. Chapman, Esq., who occupies the old homestead, it would have 
been more correct to have given his occupation, while in the city of Boston, aa 
that of a wholesale dealer and importer. 

* This account of the musket ball lodged in the Bible, is according to a 
legend preserved by the descendants of the man who carried the double pack.

commission as Captain of the Minute INIen or Coast Guard, wliich he held as 
Captain of Militia or Train Bands of those days. These commissions he held 
through the war, in which time lie was called into active service ,three or 
four times as commander of detachments'of Minute Men and of Militia ; once 
at the taking of Burgoyne ; once to garrison the forts, temporarily, at New 
London ; once at New Haven, and once to resist a detachment of the enemy 
threatening to land at Say-Brook. After the war he became very much of 
a domestic man, rearing a large family, and filling for many years, offices of 
trust in the town, and was a member of the legislature. He was a brave 
soldier, an honest man, and more than all, a consistent Christian. He died 
lamented by his fellow-eltlzens and a large circle of relatives."

NOTE J. 
Obituary of Mrs. Emily Chapman. 

As the last sheets of this work were going to the press, the author expe- 
rienced a sudden and severe bereavement in the loss of an affectionate and 
beloved wife. 

The following brief sketch of her life may not be unacceptable to those 
who had no personal acquaintance with her, while it will gratify a large cir- 
cle of intimate friends. 

Mrs. Emily Chapman, the subject of this sketch, was the eldest child of the 



382 APPENDIX. 

late Mr. Henry and INIrs. Emily Hill, born at West-Brook, Conn., Dec. 31, 
1809. Her mother was the youngest daughter of Lieut. Lebbeus Chapm^i, 
by his first marriage, and of the sixth generation, in the direct line, freta 
Capt. Robert Chapman the First Settler. (See No. 2702.) 

She was hopefully converted, under the ministry of the Rev. Sylvester 
Selden, when seventeen years of age, and united with the Congregational 
church, at Westbrook, on the first Sabbath in May, 1827. 

She was married to the Rev. F. W. Chapman on the Gth of May, 18E3^ 
in the cit}' of New York ; Mr. Chapman being at that time Pastor of tlae 
Congregational church at Stratford. She died at South Glastenbury. of 
Apoplexy on the 30th of March, 185d, a little short of twenty-one yeaors 
from the date of her marriage, beloved and lamented by a large circle of 
relatives, leaving behind her, her afflicted partner and three children, t-wo 
sons and one daughter, to mourn over their irreparable loss. 

She was a faithful, confiding and affectionate wife, an helpmeet indeed^ 
sharing in all the labors and trials incident to her husband's calling, hghtening- 
his burdens, cheering a naturally desponding spirit, animating and exciting 
him to unwearied labors in the great work of the ministry. She was a wise 
and judicious counselor to her partner in scenes of perplexity, and contrib- 
uted largely, to his usefulness as a minister of Christ. The stroke Inflicted^ 
by her sudden removal, would be more than he could endure but for the sus- 
taining grace of God, and the confident behef that his loss, Is her everlast- 
ing gain. 

From their birth, she dedicated her children to God, watched over their 
spiritual interests, with sleepless vigilance, and did whatever could be acc{33S- 
pUshed, by fervent prayer, faltliful instruction and a consistent Christian ex- 
ample, to train them for usefulness here and for blessedness hereafler. Bj- 
her kind disposition and winning manners she endeared herself to all who 
cultivated her acquaintance. She was a welcome visitant In the sick room, 
and the house of mourning, as multitudes will testify. In the different com- 
munities where her husband was called to labor. She was an active and 
constant supporter of the female prayer-meeting, where she wIU be missed 
by the faithful few who, weekly, meet to implore the blessing of God upon 
the preaching of the Word, In the building up of the Church and the con- 
version of sinners. 

Few, in a noiseless and unobtrusive manner, have accomplished more than 
she, In such a station, for the good of their own families and the church of 
God. Her record is on high. " Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord ; 
Yea saiththe Spirit, for they rest from their labors and their works do folloTT 
them." 

Her remains were taken to West-Brook for interment. An Impressive dis- 
course was delivered on Sabbath the 2d of Ajuil, the day after her burial, by 
the Rev. AVilliam A. Hyde, pastor of the church in West-Brook, from Gen... 
42, last clause of the 36th verse. " All these things are against me." 

A Funeral Discoui-se was also delivered at South Glastenbury, on the 



APPENDIX. 



383 



second Sabbath of April, by Kev. James A. Smith, pastor of the church in 
Uortb Glastenbury, from 1st John 3d, 2(1. 

^' And it doth not yet appear what we shall be ; but we know that when 
he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is." 

*" Asleep in Jesus ! blessed sleep ! 
From which none ever wake to weep ; 
A calm and undisturbed repose, 
Unbroken by the last of foes. 
Asleep in Jesus ! Oh, how sweet, 
To be for such a slumber meet, 
With holy contidence to sing 
That death has lost its vcnomed sting, 
Asleep in Jesus ! peaceful rest ! 
Whose waking is supremeh- blest. 
No fear, no woe shall dim that hour. 
That manifests the Saviour's power. 
Asleep in Jesus ! ( )li for me. 
May such a blissful refuge be ; 
Securely shall my ashes lie, 
And wait the summons from on high." 



* As this was a favorite hymn with the deceased and often on her lips, it i.s 
inserted here, as expressive of tho sentitnents of those \vbo witnessed her 
■jeaoeful death.
