p2: "First Generation.
I. Dea. Samuel Chapin came with his family to reside in Springfield in 1642. It would rather appear that he resided in this country considerable time, perhaps eight or ten years before he came to Springfield, and perhaps the greater part of his children were born in this country, but no record has been found of the birth of but one- the youngest, and we do not find any record of but one of his sons taking the freeman's oath. David, his son, was made a freeman in Springfield, 5th day 2d month, 1649. He is supposed to be the progenitor of all who bear the name in this country, and I have not found one of the name who could trace their lineage to any other source...Samuel Chapin died Nov. 11, 1675,age not known. His wife's name was Cisily, maiden name not known [Penney]. Mrs Cisily Chapin died Feb. 8, 1683, age not known. Children-
"David resided for a few years near the centre of the town of Springfield, and afterwards removed to Boston..."
