I am looking for Francis Chapman. He came to Virginia 1608 on the Starr
I think he traveled back and forth between England and USA, perhaps
never really settling here. The families he was associated with did much the same for
several generations. He married the daughter of William Perry. Some of the families that I think his
children married into are Days, Bennetts, Copeland, Ridley, Ward. One mention I find of him is the Following
"Richard Pace and several of his friends formed a "Particular Plantation", i.e., a group of colonists who took up land adjacent to each other to form a sub-colony in which their servants worked for the common good, and they shared
responsibilities for defense. Richard's "Particular Plantation" was named Pace's Paines, and included Richard Pace, Thomas Gates, Francis Chapman, William Perry, and later, Richard Richards and Richard Dolphenby. Richard Pace was the Commander and William Perry was the military Captain. Richard Pace was the largest land holder, his and Isabella's holdings amounting to 600 acres, thus his name was used to identify the group."
Names found in his family are Charles, John, Benjamin, Joseph. William Perry, his father-in-law was marriage is found
In the Register of Marriages of St. Dunstan's, Stepney, England. some of the above people were connected to
Middlesex, England. Any help or leads would be wonderful. thanks
