__________________________________________________________
Robert Chapman, according to the family tradition, came from Hull in England
to Boston, Mass., in August, 1635, from which place he sailed, in company with
Lyon Gardiner, for Saybrook, Conn., November 23, 1635, as one of the company
of twenty men who were sent over by Sir Richard Santenstall to take possession
of a large tract of land and to make settlements near the mouth of the
Connecticut River under the patent of Lord Say and Seal.

Robert Chapman was born, according to the family tradition, in 1616. Nothing
definite is known of him previous of his coming to this country. He settled
himself on a large tract of land on Oyster River, about two miles west of
Saybrook Fort. This land has descended in the line of the youngest son of each
family, having never been bought or sold, and is now, 1854, occupied by George
H. Chapman, Esq., who is the youngest of the fifth generation.

Robert Chapman married Ann Bliss on April 23, 1642 (others have this date as
April 29). He died Oct. 13, 1657. Mrs. Ann Chapman died November 30, 1685
(others have this date as Nov. 20).

Robert Chapman, the settler, was elected to the general court of Conn. 43
times, as deputy, and nine times as assistant. He was a very large landowner
in the towns of Saybrook and East Hadam. He also owned a very large tract of
land in Hebron, leaving to each of the three sons, at his death, 1500 acres in
that town, which he received as one of the legatees of Uncas and his sons.

His children were John, Robert, Ann, Hannah, Nathaniel, Mary and Sarah.
