Notes


John Chew

Information from Deborah-Ann-Remer:
John Chew of Flushing, Long Island was born in Somersetshire, England.

As a child in 1623, he immigrated from Chewton, Somersetshire, to Jamestown, Va., with his mother Sarah, and indentured servants on the ship Seaflower to join his father.

In 1644, his father sent him with his brother Nathaniel from Virginia to the New England colony in pursuit of three runaway servants. It is not known whether that mission succeeded, but in New England John met and married Ann Gates, daughter of Stephen and Ann Hill Gates of Hingham, formerly of Norwich England.

Along with other English colonists from New England, they migrated to Long Island, helping to establish the first English settlement in the Hempstead vicinity, from 1650-1666. John's farm was about 100 acres at Flushing. He was the oldest of five sons of John Chew of Virginia.
