Chapman Family Bible

Taken from the 'Annals of Newberry', by John A. Chapman, page 598-99


The Bible belonging to the Chapman family, the family of the compiler of these Annals (John A. Chapman), was printed in the year 1613, and is at the present time, 1892, two hundred and seventy­nine years old, and, as I have been informed, is in a good state of preservation without a leaf missing. It appears from the Family Record in it that it belonged in 1664 to Thomas Anderson, of Bridlington, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Thomas Anderson died on the 3th of May, 1683, being the father of three daughters and one son. His daughter, Elizabeth, born 3d of April, 1673, was married to Marmaduke Jackson, on the 14th of February, 1707, at Bridlington. These seem to have had but two children, Nathaniel Jackson, born 20th of April, 1708, and Sarah Jackson, born 27th of December, 1710. Sarah Jackson became the wife of Giles Chapman, who was born January 4th, 1702. These were the parents of six children:

Elizabeth, Samuel, Rachel, Joseph, Sarah, Giles-the eldest born January 28th, 1734: the youngest" Giles, June 21st, 1748. This Gill's Chapman afterwards became the Rev. Giles Chapman, the grandfather of this writer. He married Mary Summers on the 14th of September, 1775. These were the parents of eleven children, the eldest of whom, Joseph, was born September 23d, 1776, and the youngest, Lewis, was born March lIth, 1800.
He died April 13th, 1860. Lewis married Rhoda O'Neall, who was born April 29th, 1802. She is still living, at Appleton City, Missouri, with her son James K. P. Chapman, to whom the old Family Bible now belongs, and who gave me the foregoing information.
It does not appear at what time my great-grandfather, Giles Chapman, left Bridlington, England, and came to Virginia;
nor when he left Virginia and came to Newberry, but on "immigrating to this State, first located himself for a season,
at the place of our town." He lies buried, if I mistake not, in an old burying ground, two miles east of Newberry, known
as the Chapman Graveyard, on a place now belonging to Mr. J. A. Crotwell.

The first edition of the 'English version, King James', of the Bible now in use, was printed in 1611, only two years before the one of which I have here made record, and I think it doubtful whether there is a Family Bible of King James' version now in tbe United States older tban this.
