    Note:
    From Records of Mr. Miles Cary:

    The George Chapman who had Pamunkey Neck Patented of 1,658 is the possible ancestor of Jonathan, or Jonathan may possibly be descended from Thomas Chapman the imigrant of 1610, who was living at "Jordans Jornay" (am not sure of this quotation--it was hard to make out) with his wife and children on 100 acres of land (grant).

    Still, Hatton's List of Emigrants records another Thomas Chapman, who came to Virginia in 1635, aged 26. The archives of York County contain a certificate granted to a Thomas Chapman in 1646 for 1,200 acres of land for the importation of twenty-four persons into the Colony.

    Chapman Notes.
    A. The emigrant Thomas Chapman, son of Capt. Benjamin Chapman and Anne Parkinson was the father of Jonathan Chapman, who tradition avers was buried at "Summer Hill", and that his grave was exactly under a walk leading to the house, and that he was buried with a very valuable diamond ring on his hand.

    A. A criticism the writer can offer of the matter in Quotation A is that this family of Chapmans was a Maryland family if we are to judge by the known residence Nathaniel and Constantia Chapman in Charles County, Maryland. True Nathaniel owned much property in Virginia, as did his wife, who was of Virginia, and some of his descendants became residents of Virginia and were owners of "Summer Hill" as well as of much other property. Further, it is quite possible that a Jonathan Chapman was the father of 30 E, Nathaniel Chapman and that the said Jonathan was a brother of the Thomas Chapman who, with his sister, Mary, was the beneficiary under the Will of Thomas Craxton, above mentioned. There is no evidence to the contrary and the wording of the Will "eldest son Thomas" Page 100 indicates there were other sons. It is to be regretted that the authority for Jonathan Chapman is not more explicitly stated. In either event, it must be confessed that the connection of Nathaniel Chapman with 7 C, Thomas Chapman, son of 5 B, Benjamin, rests upon the Coat of Arms evidence alone.

    * This could be Howe or Hews, but I cannot be certain.
    ** This is a superscripted c with a period underneath.

    Note: In transcribing a will, I have opted not to use the abbreviations used in the recorded will either because the abbreviation may not make sense to someone reading my transcription or the abbreviations were superscripted. An example of a superscripted abbreviation would be a letter with either a period or some other letter or symbol beneath the superscript letter, for instance "sd.", the d would be superscript with a period underneath or "Testamt.", the t would be superscript with a period underneath. These two words are "said"
    and "testament." If I thought the abbreviation would make sense to someone reading my transcription or if I could not translate the abbreviation, then I did the best I could to copy it exactly. Other than translating the abbreviations, I have tried to transcribe the document exactly as recorded. If I could not transcribe it then I placed a (?) to so indicate.
