Richard, your name is appropriate. Richard Chew and his wife Francers Woodward settled in Gloucester Co., NJ in the early 1690s. It is said they moved to NJ from Flushing, New York. Before that they were in Boston, MA. Some may have arrived with the Mayflower and other early ships. His father John Chew and others in the family went into MD and VA. They were closely associated with the Woodwards, Clarks, Heritages, Gates, etc.
The Chews expanded from NJ into Philadelphia, PA, MD and Delaware.
