The Puritan - Deacon Samuel Chapin

Donna Cooper's Family Connections

 

  Springfield, Massachusetts, the statue of The Puritan, Samuel Chapin

Deacon Samuel Chapin was born October 08, 1598 in Paignton, Devonshire, England, and died November 11, 1675 in Springfield, Hampden Co., Massachusetts. He married Cicely Penny February 09, 1623/24 in Paignton, Devonshire, England, daughter of Henry Penny and Jane. She was born February 21, 1601/02 in Paignton, Devonshire, England, and died February 08, 1682/83 in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Samuel Chapin was the son of John Chapin of Paignton, and was christened October 8, 1598. He brought to the new world his wife, Cicelly Penny. She was a daughter of Henry Penny of Paignton, England, and Penny was christened Feb. 21, 1601. They married at Paignton, Devon, England, February 9, 1623 and they had at least five children. In 1642 he became one of the founders of the new settlement of Springfield, in Massachusetts, where a man named William Pyncheon had already established himself. Samuel Chapin took a prominent part in the town in both civil and religious affairs. He was a Deacon of the church and a member of the first board of selectmen for nine consecutive years.

There was a problem that began in Scotland around the time that Samuel had decided to leave England. Scotland was enforcing a rule for the churches to use a new prayer book. Interestingly it was said to be nearly the same prayer book as the prayer book that is used in modern times. Scotland was in a rage.  A A lot of people said that they would not stand for it nor would they remain in Scotland. They loved their country, but instead would go to a country where there was no fear of Roman domination or of High church domination. 

The Chapin family was among those who left and so they came to the New World bringing with them their children in 1638. They settled in Roxbury, Massachusetts, but they later moved to Springfield where Samuel Chapin was one of the founding members of the community. Deacon Samuel Chapin was a forceful and dynamic man. He served his town in many capacities including Selectman, Auditor and Magistrate and he was Deacon of the church for around 25 years.

One of Augustus St. Gaudens' most notable works is the statue erected to the memory of Samuel Chapin, which was unveiled November 24, 1877, in Stearns Park, Court Square, Springfield, MA. There are replicas in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts, at City Hall Square, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Louvre, Paris, and the Dresden Gallery. In its title, The Puritan, the work assumes a broad significance. It stands for a type of the Puritan character, stern, individual, resolute, vigorous, God-fearing, the pioneer of the new world. The sturdy forceful man strides along on his way to meeting on the Lord's Day with staff and Bible and with face set strongly towards his destination. The figure is of bronze of heroic size, wearing the costume of his day, which lends itself admirably to picturesque treatment, the long plain doublet, roomy breeches, heavy hose, buckled shoes, thick sugar-loaf hat, and the great flowing cloak used by the sculptor to produce an original and unique effect.

Bronze figure, 8 feet 7 1/2 inches (2.63 m) The Puritan (Deacon Samuel Chapin),1883-86 - The figure was commissioned by Chester W. Chapin (1798-1883), whose bust portrait served as a model for the head of the figure of his ancestor. The monument was unveiled in Stearns Square, Springfield, Massachusetts, on Thanksgiving Day, 1887. The Chapin family participated in the design of the costume from their research of seventeenth-century woodblock prints. The Puritan is one of the first of his most popular works from which Saint-Gaudens made reductions, beginning in 1898. Saint-Gaudens later reworked the figure, retitled The Pilgrim, for Fairmount Park, Philadelphia.

At Springfield the Indians had destroyed not only the town saw mill but the grist mill as well, necessitating the carrying of grain ten miles to Westfield for grinding. Thus, three weeks later, on October 27, 1675, tragedy came again to these poor harassed people. The diary of the Rev. Edward Taylor of Westfield relates that "our soil was moistened by the blood of three Springfield men, young Goodman (John) Dumbleton, who came to our mill and two sons of Goodman Brooks (John, aged 18 and William, aged 20) who came here to look after the iron ore on the land he had lately bought of Mr. John Pynchon, who being persuaded by Springfield folk, went to accompany them but fell in the way by the first assault of the enemy."

The winter passed in a state of siege. Long unused implements were brought out and grain was ground by hand. There were anxious days and sad days. Three of the town's stalwarts died, due perhaps to the hardships of the times; Deacon Samuel Chapin on November 11, Nathaniel Ely on Christmas day and Elizur Holyoke on February 6. At Longmeadow died Lawrence Bliss, son of a gallant mother. Margaret Bliss. John Leonard was killed by the Indians on February 24, Pelatiah Morgan March 1, and William Hunter July 4. On October 31, 1676, the beloved Captain Samuel Holyoke died of exertions at the Falls Fight.

Tradition says that he was born or lived in Dartmouth, England, for a time, or at least sailed from that port, about 1635, while there is reason for the belief that he came over in 1631 or 1632 in the "Lyon," if he was not of the original Pyncheon company. He was a contemporary with Pyncheon in the settlement of Roxbury, Massachusetts. He followed him to Springfield and was known as "Pyncheon's right-hand man" and one of the "founders of Springfield". He was made a freeman, June 2. 1641, and elected to town office in 1642. The Chapin family of this country seemed to all descended from him.

Deacon Samuel Chapin was a distinguished man in church and state. He was deacon of the Springfield church, elected in 1649, and employed to conduct services part of the time in 1656-57 when there was no minister in town. He was appointed commissioner to determine small causes, October 10, 1652, and his commission was indefinitely extended in 1654. His wife, Cicely Penny, died February 8, 1682-83; and Samuel died November 11, 1675. Of their children five were born in Europe: Catherine, Sarah, David, Henry and Josiah. Japhet was born August 15, 1642, and Hannah, December 2, 1644. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher was a descendant of Catherine Chapin and President William H. Taft is of the Josiah Chapin line.

Samuel Chapin was christened and married in the St. John The Baptist Church Paignton, Devonshire, England. He came to New England with his father and family in 1638. Researchers say that a record at Roxbury, MA, of early but unknown date shows that he possessed 24 acres of land there, and had eight persons in his family, himself, wife, father and had at least five children. In 1641 he bought a house and a lot of James Howe and became a freeman, which implied that he was a church member and gave him a right to vote and hold office under the Colonial Government. He was evidently an acquaintance of William Pynchon in England and a neighbor, for a short time, in Roxbury. Pynchon, in 1636, led about a dozen families westward to the Connecticut River where he founded a settlement first known as Agawam, later renamed Springfield, MA. The Samuel Chapin family apparently migrated to the new settlement during the winter of 1642-3. This change doubtless largely due to Pynchon's influence.

William Pynchon appointed five men of good standing in Springfield, called Selectmen, to watch over the morals, health, and public measures. Deacon Samuel Chapin was one of these who was selected. One of their most delicate duties was that of assigning seats in the Meeting House. The place of Mrs. Cissily C. is there recorded: "Good wife Chapin is to sit in the Seate alonge with Mrs. Glover, and Mrs Hollyock." Mrs. Glover was the minister's wife and therefore the leading lady, and Mrs. Hollyock was the daughter of William Pynchon."  Samuel Chapin was engaged in town business and held continuous office of selectman 1644 to 1652 and again in 1661 and 1664, and later as auditor. He is first called deacon in the records on Feb. 21,1650. Besides the regular duties assigned to this office, he conducted the Sabbath services, including preaching, for several years when the church lacked a pastor.

William Pynchon was a merchant and trader, and the founder of a small colony in Springfield on the banks of the Connecticut River, and he was also the author of the first book that was banned in Boston in a case of censorship. Pynchon was not only a man of business but also a magistrate. He was a scholarly man, and, indeed, a deeply religious one. In 1650, he completed a theological treatise entitled The Meritorious Price of our Redemption, Justification, &c. In the book he argued a point of Puritan doctrine that was opposed to the usual teachings of the ministers and leaders of the Bay Colony in Boston. The book was published in London, England, by James Moxon. When it arrived in New England in the fall of that same year, it ignited a lot of fiery anger. The General Court the legislative body for Massachusetts called upon him to react to the statements he'd made in print. They possessed of judicial powers, and so they passed a resolution condemning the book. A case of censorship appeared in this town and their court room because the book was suppressed and copies of it ordered to be burned.

And to celebrate their victory of censorship, a day of 'fasting and humiliation' was also proclaimed. That was done so the populace could consider how Satan had prevailed among them by 'drawing away some' ... "to the profession and practize of straunge opinions."  

According to historian Samuel Eliot Morison, in a paper read to the Massachusetts Historical Society in 1931, only four copies escaped the flames, one of which is located in the collection of the Connecticut Valley Historical Museum.
