Surnames: Chew, Gale, Bond, Constable, Broddyll
I'm looking for information on the children, siblings, & ancestry of John Chew II. He was born 1587 in Lancashire, England & died 1651 in Virginia. He was married 2 times. His first wife was Sarah Gale or Sarah Gale Bond whom he married in 1610 in England. Children of this marriage include John III, Nathaniel, Jonathaon, Samuel, & Joseph. John's 2nd wife was Rachel Constable whom he married in 1651 in Virginia. I don't have any children for this marriage. John's father was John Chew & mother probably Anne Broddyll. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Use the book written by Robert Chew and published by the NJ Historical Society ONLY as a source of "possibilities" for the ancestry of John Chew who emigtated to Virginia. The author provides no source information to support his claims for the ancestry of John Chew.

I have spent quite a lot of time working on this Chew family and have over 14,000 descendants of John Chew in my database. Although I have included several generations of "likely" ancestors of John Chew, I have noted that this is NOT CONFIRMED. In fact, I have found no "confirmed" source information regarding the parents and other ancestors of John Chew. So beware of records showing any ancestry for him that do not clearly indicate that this is only a possibility and is not confirmed.

Just an FYI. It appears that the dates you have typed in for your ancestor, Leah Chew, must include a typo for her death date, Shelly: (1839-1967)

Please correct, by re-posting, that no one currently on this board--or anyone arriving here later- picks up the incorrect dates. Thanks.

Guess it's not good to do this late at night.
