    (II) Henry Chapin, second son CHAPIN of Deacon Samuel (q. v.) and Cecily Chapin, does not appear to have resided in Springfield in the early part of his manhood, but took up his residence there about 1659. The town records show that he was prominent in town affairs, and a representative in the general court in 1689. Tradition says he was impressed on board a British man-of-war and served seven years, during which time he was in severe engagements with the Dutch. He afterward commanded a merchant ship and made several voyages between London and Boston, but at length, tired of a seafaring life, took up his residence in Boston, and afterward in Springfield, where his father and family resided. He settled in that part of Springfield now Chicopee, built a house on the south side of Chicopee river, on Ferry street, facing south on West street, near where a large elm tree now stands. This house was burned in 1762. He bought of John Pynchon, May 9, 1659, two hundred acres of land on the north side of Chicopee river, for which he was to pay in wheat the sum of twenty pounds in money by March, 1663. The greater part of these premises have been and still are in the possession of the descendants of Henry Chapin. He married Bethia, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Cooley, at Longmeadow, December 5, 1664. She died December n, 1711: he died August 15, 1718. Children, found on record : Henry, Sarah, Bethia, Henry (2), Benjamin, next mentioned.
