Joseph Chew

[Ron Ulrich] Married 27 Dec 1669 to Margaret ?? Mills, widow of Thomas Mills of Anne Arundel County Maryland. The age of "Joseph Chew, Sr. of Anne Arundel Co.,," is recorded, in 1713 as 76 years (Chancery Records, Annapolis, Liber PL., folio 19), and his nephew Samuel Chew recorded in the old Chew family Bible: "My onkel Joseph Chew died 12 Feb 1715/6, being ... years of age." May have married MILES vs MILLS and LARKIN vs LARKEN (also another candidate was Mary SMITH)
It has been assumed that Joseph Chew was the progenitor of the Larkin Chew family of Spotsylvania County, Virginia, through a hypothetical first marriage with a "Miss Larkin."
In "The Thomas Book," by Rev. Lawrence Buckley Thomas, D.D., pages 276-284, under the caption "Chew, of Virginia," this line is traced from Larkin Chew through several generations.


Ruth Larkin

May be a hypothetical connection. May have married Unknown GREEN - see will of Larkin Chew (d. 11 May 1728)
