Born: Abt. 1637 - Place: ..........., ..........
Died: 12 Feb. 1715/17116 - Place: Anne Arundel Co., Maryland
Father: John CHEW
Mother: Sarah UNKNOWN
Married 27 Dec 1669 to Margaret ?? Mills, widow of Thomas Mills of Anne Arundel Co., MD. The age of "Joseph Chew, Sr. of Anne Arundel Co," is recorded, in 1713 as 76 years (Chancery Records, Annapolis, Liber PL., folio 19), and his nephew Samuel Chew recorded in the old Chew family Bible: "My onkel Joseph Chew died 12 Feb 1715/6, being ... years of age." It has been assumed that Joseph Chew was the progenitor of the Larkin Chew family of Spotsylvania Co, VA, through a hypothetical first marriage with a "Miss Larkin." In "The Thomas Book," by Rev. Lawrence Buckley Thomas, D.D., pages 276-284, under the caption "Chew, of Virginia," this line is traced from Larkin Chew through several generations.
