Friendship, arriving in Boston, July 14, 1631. John Chipman was
the first and only one of the name to seek a home in America,
and up to 1850 there was no Chipman in this country who was not
descended from him."
"John Chipman was for successive years a selectman, then in
Plymouth Colony invested with the authority of a magistrate, and
was often a "Deputy to Court;" and he with three assistants was
designated to frequent the early Quaker meetings and "endeavor
to reduce them from the errors of their wayes." He became on
June 30, 1653, as his wife had become Aug 7, 1650, a member of
the church at Barnstable, Mass., and its records state that,
"Henry Cobb and John Chipman were chosen and ordained to be
ruling elders of this same church and were solemly invested with
office upon ye 14th day of April, A.D. 1670.""
