Notes for Henry Chapin

According to The Chapin Genealogy by Orange Chapin, "Tradition says of Henry, that he was impressed on board a British man of war and served seven years, during which time he was in a severe engagement with the Dutch. He afterwards commanded a merchant ship and made several voyages between London and Boston, but at length, tired of a seafaring life, took up his residence in Boston, and afterwards in Springfield, where his father and family resided." Between 1670 and 1701 he served for 11 years as Selectman. In 1689 he was Representative of the General Court of Massachusets. He and his brother Japhet Chapin were the first settlers in Chicopee, which was the old "fifth parish" of Springfield. His house was near the west end of what is now Exchange Street in Chicopee Center.
