What We Know About This Family

An Overview of Their Lives

George and Elizabeth Chinn had two children before he died relatively young. His land and guardianship of their children were granted to John Codner in exchange for Codner's payment of his debts. Codner apparently made an agreement with William Browne, the future husband of his ward , Mary Chinn, for a settlement of land as part of their marriage agreement. William Browne brought an action of non performance against Codner and was awarded a piece of land.

More Information About the Children:

  • John Chinn married Rebecca Merritt, the daughter of our direct ancestors Nicholas and Mary Sandin. John was a cooper by trade. His wife survived him.

  • Mary Chinn and her first husband, William Browne, were our direct ancestors and have their own family group page. After William's death, Mary married Richard Gross in 1684. By 1688, he married our ancestor Miriam, widow of John Pedrick, so Mary Chinn Browne Gross died before 1688. William and Mary's daughter, Mary, in turn married John Pedrick. Jr., and two of their sons were our direct ancestors and very successful mariners..

What Else We Need to Learn

The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.
