PREFACE. 

So much of the following Records as relate to Rev. Nathaniel Clia.se, an early 
settler in Bucklield, Me., ami his descendants, was collected and compiled by his 
granddaughter, Mrs. Julia Chase Washburn, of Livermore Maine. Tiny wore 
furnished for publication in the Maine Genealogist and Biographer, but it was 
subsequently thought advisable to print them in :i pamphlet : also to prefix a brief 
account of the i migrant ancestor, and records of hi* children and grandchildren, 
thereby making genealogical connection between the earlier and later branches 
of the family. This part of the pamphlet, and also the closing pages giving an ac- 
count of Edmund Chase, an early settler of Minot. Maine, and records of some of 
his descendants, were compiled from other sources and supplied by me. 

The, pamphlet i- designed for distribution among such members of the two 
branches traced therein, as may desire to possess it. and in the case of Rev, 
Nathaniel, as a token of respi <-t and love to the memory of a worthy ancestor, who 
voluntarily aided in the struggle for Independence, hewed out for himself and fam- 
ily a home in the wilderness, ;in«l was, for many years, a faithful minister of the 
Gospel among the pioneer settlt i> of Oxford county.

CHASE FAMILY RECORDS. 



The Chase family is said to be of Norman descent, and it has 
been suggested that the name was formerly LaChass. Be this as 
it may, the fact that families of this name, have been for several 
centuries in England, is unquestioned. As early as 1326, families 
of Chase, lived in Suffolk. .The criminal records, show that a 
Thomas Chase, was barbarously murdered, in 1^06. There was a 
Sir John Chase in Exeter, before 1637, and John Chase, Esq., was 
Apothecary to Queen Anne, in 1690. 

Savage says that Aquila Chase of Hampton and Newbury, was 
a mariner from Cornwall. England, but the records of the Heralds' 
Visitation, at Buckinghamshire in 1634, indicate thathis family may 
have been of Chesham. There was a Thomas Chase of Cheshain, 
who had a son Richard, baptised August 3, 1^42. This Richard, 
married Joan Bishop, at Chesham April 16, 1564, and had : i, Robert, 
baptised, September 16, 1565 ; ii, Henry, baptised, August to, 
1567 ; iii, Lydia, baptised, October 4, 1573 ; iv, Ezekiel, baptised, 
April 23, 1576; v, Dorcas, baptised, March 2, 157S ; vi, Aquila, 
baptised, August 14. 15S0; vii, Jason, baptised, January 13, 15S3 ; 
viii, Thomas, baptised, July iS, 1585, ix, Abigail, baptised, Jan- 
uary 12, 1588 ; Mordecai, baptised, Jnly 31, 1591. 

The old story of '-three brothers", which so frequently proves to 
be mythical, holds true with regard to the Chase family, for three 
brothers by the name of Chase, supposed to have been sons of 
Aquila and grandsons of Richard above named, were among the 
early emigrants to New England. William 1 with his wife Mary-, 
and son William, came in the company with Governor Winthrop, 
in 1630. He thought of going to Scituate, but, finally changed 
his purpose, and went with a party to Cape Cod, and settled in what 
is now Yarmouth. He died there in May, 1659, leaving children ; 
i, William born about 1622 : ii, Mary born 1637 ; iii Benjamin born 
1630 married Phillippe Sherman. The widow of William Chase was 
found dead the same year that her husband deceased, and an inquest 
decided that she died a natural death. The descendants of William 
and Mary Chase continue to reside in the towns of the Cape, and 



(4) 

may be found scattered elsewhere. The two Chase brothers, 
Thomas and Tristram who came from Marthas' Vineyard and set- 
tled early in Livermore, Maine, are supposed to be descendants of 
William the emigrant. 

Thomas 1 and Aquila Chase, 1 younger brothers of William, 
appeared in Hampton about the year 1639. They were young, 
unmarried men. Thomas married Elizabeth daughter of Thomas 
Philbrook and resided in Hampton until his death which occurred 
in 1652. His widow married (2) John Garland in 1654. and (3) 
Henry Roby in 1677. The children of Thomas and Mary Chase 
were : i. Thomas born 1642 died unmarried October 23, 1714; ii, 
Joseph born 1645 married Rachel Partridge. January 31, 1671 ; iii, 
Isaac born April 1, 1647 married (1) February 20, 1673, Mary 
Perkins and (2) October ^, 167^, Marv Tilton ; iv, James born 
1649, married Elizabeth Green, September 2, 1675 ; v, Abraham 
born August 6. 1651, unmarried, "wvas killed in ye warres 1676." 

Aquila Chase 1 , mariner, born in 161S, married Anne, daughter 
of John Wheeler of Hampton, X. H., and about the year 1646 he 
moved to Newbury where he had a grant of four acres of land and 
resided till his death which took place Dec. 27, 1670. He was a 
man of some note in Newbury, and his name often appears upon 
the town records of his time. He is said to have been the first 
person to bring a vessel over Newbury bar. The only record to 
his discredit is that which states that "Aquila Chase and his wife 
were presented for gathering pease on ye Sabbath day." The 
purpose of this little pamphlet is to trace down one or two branches 
of the family of Aquila, but we have given his children and grand- 
children complete, so far as they appear upon the records of 
ancient Newbury. The children of Aquila and Anne Chase were 
as follows :

70 Eleazer 4 came in early manhood to Windham. Maine, to 
aid in defending the infant settlement, from the attacks of the

Elder of Windham, and settled there. By this marriage, he had: 
Isaac and Mary (1756) and two other children who died young. 
His wife died and he married Mrs. Mary (Boobv) Brown of Mar-

8 Nathaniel Chase, (son of Eleazer 4 ) was born in Windham, 
Me., Sept. 2, 1761. When 14 years old. the Revolutionary War 
broke out. and his father enlisted as one of the first minute men, leav- 
ing the whole family dependent upon him. When sixteen he enlisted 
himself and when seventeen he entered the army and served one 
year In March, 17S1, being nearly twenty years of age, he left 
Windham in company with two others and walked forty miles on 
snow-shoes, through the forest, drawing a hand-sled on which was 
a bushel of meal, axe, hatchet and gun, to what is now the town 
of Buckfield, Maine. Here he cleared twelve acres of land and 
built a log cabin to which he removed his parents in 17S2 ; giving 
them the land thus prepared, he began anew in the forest himself. 
By an act of Legislature he was enabled to secure one hundred 
acres of land for his father and a tract adjoining this of equal ex- 
tent for himself, and he subsequently added over 200 acres to his 
own farm by purchase. Here he built first a log cabin, then a 
small frame house and finally the large square house where he 
lived till his death. This house and a large part of the farm is still 
owned and occupied by the family of his son, the late Hon. Thomas 
Chase, to whose faithful care he was indebted for the comfort and 
quietude of his last years. The remainder of the farm is divided 
into two farms, on one of which his oldest son Daniel lived and 
died, and the other was owned tor many years by his son William. 
He was married three times. In 1 7S3 he married Rhoda Elliot of
