This genealogy identifies many of the descendants of John Slade, who was born about 1739, most likely in England and was recorded in Boston before the American Revolution.

Much of the information shown herein is based on the research by Dr. Alfred  Skinner, Susan Slade Carr and Arthur C. Slade, III, which was privately published under the title: The Spice Slades of Chelsea, Massachusetts and Their Ancestors and Descendants

 Additional information has been gleaned from public records, historical books, land and tax records, wills, census, family bibles, letters, documents, recolections of old timers and correspondence with other researchers.  If you have information about your family that you would like to add, update or change your family information, please contact the compiler below. 

We have not intentionally included details about any living person, only their names might appear as children of their parents.  Oftentimes we have more information about a family than is published on this website.  If you are interested, you may contact the compiler below.

When a date is preceded by a 'c' or 'circa', it implies that the date is not exact, but within a few years, such as might be assumed from census age, and similar sources.  If the date is preceded with 'est' or 'say', it means that the date was estimated based on an educated guess, using any clues available.  Be aware that these dates might be off by a decade or more, and are only used in order to establish a reasonable time line of events.

The Slade Surname DNA Project provides an opportunity to verify which branch you belong to and to confirm suppositions of conventional research methods. This study has been instrumental in proving several connections in this dataset.
