    Notes 
    • Capt. Samuel CHAPMAN married Margaret GRISWOLD, of Norwich, supposed to be the daughter of Capt. Samuel GRISWOLD (doubtful), and grand-daughter of Lieut. Francis GRISWOLD (possible). Mr. CHAPMAN was a prominent man in Saybrook in civil and military affairs. He resided in what is now the town of Westbrook, and with his wife Margaret, was of the first fourteen persons who were organized into a church at that place, 29 June 1726. Four of his descendants have been successively deacons of that church. The date of Samuel CHAPMAN's decease is not known. !The CHAPMAN Family (1854); Rev. F.W. Chapman

      According to Torrey, Margaret born in 1668 married Thomas BUCKINGHAM 16 Dec 1691 at Saybrook. There is no record of Samuel GRISWOLD son of Francis having a daughter named Margaret and the fact that he wasn't married until late in the year 1685 makes it impossible for him to have fathered a child old enough to marry 8 years later. There is another Margaret GRISWOLD who is a niece of Edward GRISWOLD. She is the daughter of John GRISWOLD and Mary BEVINS who was born 10 Dec 1675 making her age 18 at the time of the marriage of Samuel CHAPMAN. This makes much more sense than a bride aged 8. There seems to be no marriage listed for this Margaret, but she did live to maturity. !Families of Early Guilford, CT:531
