Surname Saturday ~ CHIPMAN of Cape Cod, Massachusetts


John Chipman, my 9th great grandfather, arrived in New England on 14 July 1631 aboard the ship Friendship, with his uncle Richard Derby, from Devonshire, England when he was about 16 years old.  He married Hope Howland, daughter of Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley, in 1646.  John Chipman became a member of the church at Barnstable, Massachusetts on 30 June 1653, and his wife joined on 7 August 1650.

He bought a homestead in Barnstable in 1649, the year he became a freeman. He removed to West Barnstable in 1659 and bought land from his brother-in-law, Lt. John Howland in 1672. He was a representative to the General Court in 1663-5, and again in 1668-9, selectman in 1665-8, and on the Council of War in 1667.  He was granted 100 acres between Taunton and Titicut in 1669 for his service. 

John and Hope Chipman had twelve children.  When Hope died in 1684, John remarried to Ruth Sargent, widow of both Jonathan Winslow and Richard Bourne.  She outlived John by two years.  He died in 1709 and she died in 1711.  I descend from John and Hope’s fifth child, Hannah Chipman (1659 – 1696), my 8th great grandmother, who married Thomas Huckins in 1680.  Hope died a few months after giving birth to her ninth child.  Their daughter Hope Huckins (1689 – after 1730) is my 7th great grandmother.
