Most members of the Chadbourne Family Assoc. (CFA) are descendants of immigrants by 1634 to what is now southern Maine, in the area later called Kittery in York County, that part later Berwick and still later South Berwick, where Route 4 crosses from New Hampshire into Maine. William Chadbourne, b. 1582 in Tamworth, England, came on the ship "Pied Cow". Then or within a few years came sons William and Humphrey, as well as dau. Patience who married Thomas Spencer, himself perhaps in the same area by 1631, as some believe also may have been Humphrey Chadbourne who'd been baptised just fourteen years earlier. We have not found proof nor indeed early accounts that either Wm. or son Humphrey built the "Great House" at Strawbery Banke, now Portsmouth, NH. as claimed in some books of the region. If you click "CONTINUED.." under "FIRST GENERATION" below, you will see a sample similar to an early part of the 1994 book "The Chadbourne Family in America: A Genealogy", compiled by Elaine C. Bacon for The Chadbourne Family Association, and edited by Deborah L. Chadbourne. Though what you see here may differ slightly from the book (including daughter's husband), we've not yet compared to what extent either the book or what you see here is more recently edited.
