Descendants of William Chapman of New London, CT
1. William CHAPMAN was born about 1638 and died on 18 Dec 1699 in New London, New London, CT 1,2.
The following is taken from the E Mail received from Paula D. Zerfas
"Notes for William Chapman: A Catalogue of the names of the early Puritan settlers of the Colony of CT with the time of their arrival in the country and colony, their standing in society, place of residence, condition in life, where from, business, &c, as far as is found on record. Collected from records by Royal R. Hinman, Hartford, 1852.
Chapman, William, of N. London, in 1657, had the house and lot which had been Capt. Denison's, purchased of Mr. Blynman, agent of John Chynnery. (Caulk, N.L., p. 93) He rang the first bell at N. London, "a large brass bell," as Miss Caulkins says, "to signalize the entrance of Mr. Saltonstall on his official duties. It cost £25 in current money, and for ringing it, he had 40s. added to his salary of £3, as sexton." Wm. was a freeman at N. London in 1669. There is no evidence that Robert, of Saybrook, and William, of N. London, or John, of N. Haven, were relatives. ------------------------------------------------The Chapman Family: or the Descendants of Robert Chapman, one of the First Settlers of Say-Brook, Conn.. with Genealogical Notes of William Chapman, who settled in New London, CT.; Edward Chapman, who settled at Windsor, CT; John Chapman, of Stonington, CT and Rev Benjamin Chapman, of Southington, CT by Rev. F. W. Chapman 1854 (Henceforth, this book will be referred to as The Chapman Book.
(Typed as written)
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 evidence has been found that they were kinsmen. It is not know from whence William came. He appears first on the New London records, in 1657.
In the book of town grants, appears the following: "William Chapman hath given him thirty ackers of upland bounded towards the south with Mr. 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, 1691, it was "Voated that whereas William Chapman had formerly allowed him by the town three pounds for his sexton's place by the yeare, they now add forty shillings more and order him five pounds per year for sweeping the meeting house and galleries and ringing the bell."
1. Probate; After 18 Dec 1699; New London, New London, CT. 3From the records of the court of probate, it appears that he lived over thirty years after making his will. The inventory of his estate was exhibited in court, (the appraisal bearing date January 2, 1669/70) amounting to £28 0s 6d.
According to the will he had seven children.
2. Will; 1 Apr 1669; New London, New London, CT. 4
