In 1631, the "Great House" was built by Humphrey Chadborn, about three miles up the Piscataqua from Mason's Hall. Its location was on our present Water street, on the south-east corner of Court street. It was from this point, over Church hill and further north, that there was a large growth of strawberries near the bank of the river, which circumstance, for thirty years from the first settlement up to 1658, gave what is now the compact part of Portsmouth, the name of Strawberry Bank.

The Great House, which was also a part of Mason's property, was the second house reported to have been built here, although the circumstance that a fort was early erected on the eastern part of Great Island goes to show that probably there were some fishermen's cots on that island at the time.

To the Great House there were attached about a thousand acres of land, consisting of marsh, meadow, planting and pasture grounds, and much of it under improvement. The bounds of this farm cannot now be accurately defined; it probably extended over a large portion of the present compact part of the city, taking in the whole peninsula between the ponds, and extending west and north of them. An old document shows that Strawberry Bank was the planting ground and pasture of the Great House.

In 1632, Mason imported a large breed of yellow cattle from Denmark. We find that in 1635, there were twenty-four cows and thirty-four other meat cattle, ninety-two sheep, twenty-seven goats, sixty-four hogs, and twenty-one horses and colts on the plantation. The imported cattle increased so well that, thirteen years after, one of Mason's unfaithful stewards drove a hundred of them to Boston and the vicinity, where he sold them on his own account for about twenty pounds a head. Some of this stock is yet to be found in this vicinity.

While we are rambling about the Manor, the Great House, and the Saw-mill establishment, which compose the three divisions of the Mason plantation, we will look in upon their stores, a schedule of which, made in July, 1635, at the time of Mason's death, is before us. We find them not only provided with food in abundance, but also with ample means of defense. For use in their little forts were furnished some articles of armament such as their descendants now rarely see. Here are twenty-two arquebusses, capable of carrying a three ounce ball, and cocked with a wheel; three sakers, two chambers, and four other pieces of ordnance called murtherers; here, too, are four muskets, forty-six fowling pieces, twelve pistols, sixty-one swords and belts; and to make the guns effective, thirteen barrels of gunpowder, and about a thousand pounds of bullets and shot. For music, here are two drums for the training days, while no less than fifteen hautboys and "soft recorders" are provided to cheer the emigrants in their solitude. Looking into their storehouse, we find 220 bushels of corn and meal, 20 bushels of oatmeal, 15 barrels of malt, 29 barrels of peas, 610 pounds of sugar, 512 pounds of tobacco, 6 pipes of wine and 2 of brandy. Tea and coffee were then unknown, and chocolate had not come into use. So if we stop at the Great House, or at the Hall, for refreshments, we must put up with an Indian cake, pea porridge, a flagon of ale, and after whiffing a Dutch pipe, a cup of wine. It is very doubtful whether we can be accommodated with any crockery or glassware from which to partake our treat, for the twelve hundred and seventy-six utensils made of wrought pewter, which they possessed, would seem enough to supply every use to which crockery might be appropriated. We must be careful to keep good hours-for in the whole establishment can be found but about fifteen pounds of candles.

Humphrey Chadbourne, from whom all branches of this family in New England are supposed to have been descended, came to this country as early as 1624, "on invitation of Sir Ferdinando Georges and Capt. John Mason." He settled first on the Piscatauqua at a point called Strawberry Bank, where the city of Portsmouth now stands. There were two other persons of the name contemporary with Humphrey in the new settlement, both supposed to have been his near relatives. SETH CHADBOURNE, of Boston, who had devoted years to the history of the family, said: "WILLIAM, SR., must have been father of HUMPHREY, but I cannot prove it." WILLIAM, JR., had a daughter MARY, b. in Boston, Dec., 1644, after which his name disappears. Hubbard calls Humphrey Chadbourne "chief of the artificers." He was in business at Strawberry Bank as early as 1631. The great house which he built was used for a store where English goods were bartered with the Indians for peltry, and the surrounding settlers supplied with such provisions as they needed. This truck house passed into the hands of the Cutts family, and in 1685 was in ruins. Humphrey removed to Newichawannock, now South Berwick, after a few years, and purchased of the Indian chief Rowles a large tract of land, described briefly in the following copy of the first Indian deed recorded in the county:

"Know all whom these may consarne that Humphrey Chadbourne bought of Mr. Roles, the Sagamore, of Newichawanuke, Half a mile of Ground which lieth between the Little River and the Great River to begin at the northern side of ye old Ground and for the Conformety thereof the aforesaid sagamore Mr. Roles hath hereunto set his hand and seal May the 10th, 1643. And the said Mr. Roles doth except a parcel of Ground called by the name Comphegan which he doth keep for himself." In 1646 Rowles sold Chadbourne his right in the "ware" at the "Fales of the Great River Newichawanucke," reserving for himself "half of the great alewives taken there from time to time." The signature to these documents was the figure of a man having horns.

In his will, made in 1667, Humphrey mentions his wife, Lucy, sons HUMPHREY, JAMES, and WILLIAM; "little daughters," LUCY, ALICE, and KATHERINE, to each of which he gives one hundred pounds. To his "ounckle," Nicholas Shapleigh, he gives "one very good beaver hatt," and to his cousins, William Spencer and John Shapleigh, each "a good castor hatt, as good as can be gotten." Gave ALICE his "great silver beaker." He was the owner of farms, mills, timber lands, and must have been considered a man of wealth. According to the English custom, he made his eldest son, HUMPHREY, his principal heir, supplementing his gifts of real estate with that of his saddle horse "with all the furniture to him belonging."

In the Captain Sunday, Ossipee deed of 1761, "Chadbourne's Logging Camp" is mentioned. This was the headquarters of the lumbermen who were cutting timber for the mills on Chadbourne's river, owned by Humphrey and his son of the same name.

The valuable and extensive lands conveyed by Humphrey Chadbourne to his sons and by them to their children have continued long in the family possession, and from the earliest settler of the name in Berwick, who was a deputy to the General Court for three years, numbers of the connection have been conspicuous in the town and state.

Branches of the family have been planted in various sections of Maine, and numerous offshoots have taken root in other states; from these many cadets have been produced who have honored the name and blessed the world. The family has been characterized by religious devotion and represented by many preachers of the gospel.

As soldiers in the wars of our country since the first armies were raised, the CHADBOURNES have rallied to the call for defenders of the flag, and during the Civil war many of them bravely fought upon the bloody fields, and some of them sacrificed their lives for their country.

HUMPHREY 2 CHADBOURNE (1. William 1), baptized Tamworth, Warwickshire, England 23 Apr 1615; died Kittery, York Co, ME 1667 (will dated 25 May 1667, recorded 15 Oct 1667, inventory returned 12 Sep 1667 (MW, 45-53; YD 2:27-31); married about 1652 LUCY 2 TREWORGYE (James 1), born circa 1632, came to this country circa 1646 (LND), died Newcastle NH between 1704 and Apr 13 1708 (LND, 133-134), daughter of James and Catherine (Shapleigh) Treworgye and niece of Humphrey's good friend, Major Nicholas Shapleigh.

Humphrey may have arrived in New England with his father in 1634, although some reports credit his arrival earlier. Several books and articles have called Humphrey the builder, "chiefest of the artificers," of the Great House at Strawbery Banke in 1631. If this were so, he would have had to have come with his brother-in-law Thomas Spencer in 1630 or have been the "factor" who came on the Warwick in 1631. If he was baptized in the year of his birth, he would have been only 16 in 1631. In 1989 George Sanborn, as The CFA Reunion main speaker, stated that we have no documentation as to when Humphrey arrived. The first record we have found indicating his presence in America is the 1640 list of Residents of NH (NHPP, Vol 1), and in the same year he was named among the Kittery men who did not attend the court held at Saco (LND, 32), apparently required of all settlers in the region each year.

In 1643, Humphrey received a deed from the Indian Sagamore Roles of half a mile of ground between the Little River and the Great River in Newichawannock (S Berwick), except Quamphegan (YD I:6). Three years later, Humphrey got a release from the same Sagamore of the rights to the fishing weir at Little John's Falls in Newichawannock (ibid). On 18 May 1645 Humphrey and Robert Nanney purchased a dwelling house in Dover from Christopher Lawson of Boston, that had been in the possession of William Belew. The land included an acre around the house and twenty acres of upland formerly granted by the town of Dover to Belew (Suffolk Deed I:68). No evidence has been found that Humphrey lived there. In 1650 he was elected town clerk in Kittery and served in this capacity many times thereafter. In 1651/2 he built his house near Great Works and that year served as a selectman. In 1663, Humphrey bought 150 acres of land at Sturgeon Creek from Nicholas Shapleigh, Lucy's uncle (Humphrey's will). The Sturgeon Creek property is shown on the 1701 "Plott of Mr Humphrey Chadburns Farm at Sturgeon Creek," surveyed for the town of Kittery for tax purposes, available through The CFA.

Notations by Charles Thornton Libby in his personal copy of Stackpole's Old Kittery and Her Families, held at MHS, show testimony (from MA Supreme Judicial Court Docket #138094, between 1780-1798) by Elder Humphrey 5 stating references by William 4 and Humphrey 4 regarding a log house of Humphrey 2:

"I Humphry Chadbourn of Francisborough in the County of York Esqr testify & say that about sixty years agone that I have heard my Father & Uncle Humphry Chadbourn often speaking of their Grand father's Logg house or Loging house & that said house stood about half a mile Southerly of Quampeging Landing in Berwick near Little River now called great works river and further saith not." George Dod discharged Humphrey Chadbourne of his share of "The third part" of victualling and wages of Dod's man in the French voyage, apparently a shipping/trading venture in which Dod, Chadbourne and Henry Parkes were partners together until Dod bought out Chadbourne (YD I:24 30 Apr 1651).

In Nov 1652 Humphrey was fourth among the men signing the Kittery Act of Submission, by which Kittery agreed to be governed by the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The signers may have thought this would strengthen their land claims in the face of claims by heirs of Capt John Mason. Capt Mason and Fernando Gorges had been granted by King James I 10 Aug 1622 all the land between the Merrimac and Kennebec Rivers. This was further divided in 1629, with Mason receiving all the land between the Merrimac and the Piscataqua. On 3 Nov 1631 Mason and Gorges made a grant to the Council of Plymouth, encompassing both sides of Piscataqua harbor and river. After his death in 1635, his heirs or agents apparently did not continue to fulfill Mason's part of the contract with the colonists; so by 1643 Humphrey 2 Chadbourne initiated the secure title to S Berwick land with his deed from Mr Rowles, the Indian. In Nov 1652 this was further strengthened by the Kittery Act of Submission. Richard Leader was noticeably absent from the signers of this document. Humphrey Chadbourne was among the signers of a petition against Richard Leader in Dec 1652, accusing him of the desire of purpose to get the upper hand in government over them (LND, 32/233, 421; Stackpole, 11-5).

By occupation, Humphrey was a miller, but he held several significant public offices as well, including serving as town clerk in 1650 and "often thereafter" (LND, 133). He was appointed a deputy to the General Court in 1657 and acted as commissioner to end small causes for several years. He was returned as deputy in 1659-60. He signed the petition against the claims of the Gorges heirs in 1662 and was an associate judge in 1662-3. In The Tory Lover, Sarah Orne Jewett called him "the law-giver of Kittery."

Children, probably born Kittery (now S Berwick): Humphrey, James, William, Lucy, Alice, Katherine, Elizabeth.

Lucy married second after 1 Apr 1669 (YD 4:fol 51) and probably by 13 Apr 1671, when Wills received land "for the use of Thomas Chick's family" (Berwick TR, 74) Thomas Wills. They were surely married by 12 May 1674 when Lucy's niece Elizabeth (Spencer) Chick was in court for abusing her "Aunt Wells" (vide post). Lucy married third after 14 Mar 1687/8 (date of Thomas Wills' inventory attested to by widow Lucy, LND, 134) Elias Stileman of the Isle of Shoals (LND, 661-2). The will of Elias Stileman, written 18 Dec 1695, named Lucy and her children (LND, 662). Elias died 19 Dec 1695 (Journal of Reverend John Pike, NHHS Coll III: 47). Lucy was listed on the Great Island (Newcastle) tax lists of 1699. She left an extensive will probated in NH as Lucy Stileman. [ref 74:9]
