Deacon Samuel Chapin was a forceful and dynamic man. A man with Puritan faith, he brought hi s family to New England about 1638. Living first in Roxbury, Mass. then moving to Springfiel d in 1642 as one of the founders of that city then called Agawam. He served his town in man y capacities including Selectman, Auditor and Magistrate and he was Deacon of the church fo r some 25 years. Next to the Public Library in Springfield there is a bronze statue, "The Pur itan", placed there 24 Nov 1887 which honors him. It is the sculptor's idea of how such a ma n as Deacon Chapin, a man of his moral standing and spiritual qualities ought to have looked.

A chronology of Samuel Chapin's activities:

1638: Samuel Chapin and wife Cicely were at Roxbury. Came to Springfield, MA from Roxbury, MA .
1641, 2 Jun: Samuel Chapin of Springfield, MA, admitted Freeman.
1643: Town officer. He took a prominent part in all the affairs of the town, both religious a nd civil.
1644: Freeman
1648: A member of the Board of Selectmen on which Benjamin Cooley first served. A member of t he first Board of Selectmen and
served 9 consecutive years.
1649: Deacon.
1651: Commissioner.
1652: John Pynchon, Elizur Holyoke and Samuel Chapin were appointed Commissioners, or Magistr ates, to hear and determine all cases and offences, both civil and criminal, "that reach no t to life, limbe and banishment."
1653: The General Court appointed him and John Pynchon to lay out Northampton and its bounds , and they made purchase of the lands from the Indians.
1664: He petitioned the General Court for some land for services done.
1669: The General Court granted him 200 acres as laid out 4 miles from Mendon, bounded as i n the platt which is on file, provided it did not exceed 200 acres and that it did not take i n any of the meadows now granted to Mendon.
1674, 4 Mar (1st mo.): Samuel Chapin wrote his will. Bequeathed to wife, son Henry, grandso n Thomas Gilbert.
1676, 24 Mar: Will probated. Son Japhet Chapin with his wife Abilene deposed.

Notes for Cicely Penny:
In her will, Cecily CHAPIN bequeathed to sons Henry CHAPIN of Springfield, MA and Josia h CHA PIN of Braintree, MA; to Sarah THOMAS and Hannah HITCHCOCK; to Henry GILBERT, apprentice to J ohn HITCHCOCK. Named son Japhet executor.

Page X11 of Chapin Book: Deacon Samuel Chapin's Place in the Community:
Samuel Chapin came to New England probably with his father and family in 1635 or earlier. A r ecord at Roxbury, of early but unknown dates shows that he possessed 24 acres of land there , and had eight persons in his family, himself, wife, father, and five children. (The presen ce of his father John Chapin, at this time is in conformity with records already quoted). I n 1641 he bought a house and lot of James Howe and became a Freeman, which implied he was a c hurch member and gave him the right to vote and hold office under the Colonial Government.

He was evidently an acquaintance of William Pynchon in England and a neighbor, for a short time, in Roxbury. Pynchon, in 1636, led about a dozen families westward to the Connecticut Riv er, where he founded the settlement first known as Agawam, later named Springfield. The Chapins apparently migrated to the new settlement during the winter of 1642-3. This change was doubtless largely due to Pynchon's influence.
William Pynchon apponted five men of standing in Springfield, called Selectman, to warch ove r morals, health, and public measures. Deacon Samuel was one of these. One of their most delicate duties was that of assigning the seats in the meeting house. The place of Mrs. Cissil y C. is there recorded: "Goodwife Chapin is to sitt in the Seate alonge with Mrs. Glover and Mrs. Hollyock." Mrs. Grover was the minister's wife and was therefore the leading lady, and Mrs. Hollyock was the daughter of William Pynchon.

Samuel was engaged in town business and held continuously office of selectman 1644 to 1652 and again in 1661 and 1664, and later as auditor. He was first called deacon in the records o n Feb. 21 1650. Besides the regular duties assigned to this office, he conducted the Sabbath service, including preaching, for several years when the church lacked a pastor.

In 1651, William Pynchon was convicted of heresy, by the General Court, and returned to England. His son-in-law, Henry Smith then became chief magistrate. The next year he too returne d to England and Capt. John Pynchon, Lieut. Elizer Holyoke and Samuel Chapin were by the Gene ral Court commissioned magistrates for the administration of justice, "allowing them the power of a County Court." He held the office until 1664, and in addition performed important dut ies, laying out land grants and the plantations that became Northampton and Hadley.

His first home lot was at the corner of the present Main and Pynchon Streets, but by 1664 h e appears to have been living in Chicopee, with his son Japhet. His holding in Springfield were large, but he gave all to his sons in his life time, reserving a life interest for himsel f and his wife, his will disposing of personal estate only.

In October, 1675, Springfield was attacked by Indians and burned. Deacon Chapin did not se e the town rebuilt, for in about a month, as he wrote his son Japhet, "My father was taken out of this troublesome world the 11 day of November about eleven of the clock in the eve, 1675 ."

Deacon Samuel Chapin "conscientiously and wisely discharged important trusts for the maintenance of religion and good order and left an abiding impress of his character and life on the city." To judge from the private acts of the amn, and from the firm hand he wrote, he was a man of some education, strong will, inflexible integrity, abundant charity and real piety.

Chapin Link:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 1635 Samuel and Cicely Penny Chapin settled at Roxbury, Massachusetts. In 1641 he became a freeman. In 1642 he moved to Agawam (Springfield, Massachusetts). He was a deacon, constable in 1645, selectman, 1644-51, commissioner in 1652 and appointed by General Court of Colony of Massachusetts Bay to govern there.

From another source I have that Samuel and wife were at Roxbury in 1638 and in Springfield in 1642. (This source did not know he came from Devonshire.) He took a prominent part in all the affairs of the town, both religious and civil.

He was a member of the First Board of Selectman and served for nine consecutive years. In 1652, John Pynchon, Elizur Holyoke and Samuel Chapin were appointed commissioners to hear and determine all cases and offenses, both civil and criminal that reach not to life, limb and banishment.

The Deacon at various times, in the absence of a minister, from the departure of Mr. Moxon to the coming of his successor, Peleiah Glover, conducted religious services, alternating with Henry Burt and John Pynchon.

He served on important committees and the General Court in 1653 appointed him and John Pynchon to lay out Northampton and its bounds and they made purchase of the lands from the Indians.

In 1659 they were appointed to lay out Hadley on both sides of the Connecticut River, which on the west side subsequently became the town of Hatfield.

In 1664 he petitioned the General Court for some land for services done and in 1669 the Court granted him 200 acres as laid out four miles from Mendon, bounded as in said plat which is on file, provided it not exceed 200 acres, as also that it take not any of the meadows granted to Mendon.

His son, Josiah settled in Braintree, the town adjoining Mendon and in 1684 he with others and the Selectman of Mendon petitioned the General Court concerning taxing unimproved lands. In answer to the petition the General Court granted the said petitioners free from country rates for the years ensuing. Meaning the Province Tax.

Samuel Chapin was conspicuous in all the affairs that concerned the moral, religious and secular interests of the town. He had probably the greater number of descendants living within the old County of Hampshire at the time this book was written (1800's) than any one of the first settlers. The descendants have reason to be proud of their distinguished relative.

Samuel Chapin had seven children, four sons and three daughters, all of whom were born before coming to Springfield.

The surname Chapin is of French origin, being a corruption of the name Chapman, who was a trader or shopkeeper. Deacon Samuel Chapin, the Puritan, whose statue by the great American sculpture, St. Gaudens, stands on the Public Square, of the city of Springfield,, Mass. was the progenitor of the Chapins of Ashtabula Co. Ohio. This statue, not strictly a portrait as there is no record of his face or features, but it was intended as the sculptor's ideal of the Puritan deacon. He stands on his pedestal garbed in a long waistcoat and heavy stockings with square toes shoes and peaked hat. His right hand holds a heavy cane, and in his left is a large Bible, the statue was unveiled Nov. 24, 1887.

The early life of Samuel Chapin was spent in the English village of Paignton. He was supposed to have arrived in America in 1635, when he was about 37 years old. He first settled with his family at Roxbury (now Boston), but in 1642-3, he moved to Agawam, later called Springfield, on what was then the far western frontier. He was not one 'of the earliest settlers, but upon his arrival he took his place as a leader of the settlement. He was selectman, in 1661 and 1664. From 1650 until his death he was Deacon of the Springfield church and when the church was without a pastor, conducted its preaching services. During King Phillip*s War, Springfield was in a very dangerous position, and in 1675 the town was burned by the Indians. A month later the old deacon died, his death probably hastened by the burning of the town which he had done so much to build. His descendants are very numerous and many were persons of great distinction.
