Site Last Updated:     Saturday, September 16, 2017. Global Records of the Chute Family

It seems that the server holding the Chute Global records has had some "technical difficulties". When Ancestry sold their business, the "Mail Merge" function disconnected and stopped working. This is currently impacting the online "Chute Family Data Worksheet" as well as the "Guestbook" functions, and they do not have an estimated time of repair for these options. Until they get the function working again, the Online Data Worksheet function has been removed from the list of options. You can update your records for the time being by sending me an E-Mail.

Just in Time for Halloween: Ancient Chute Burial Ground The Lionel Chute Pedigree Scroll & the Bethersden Chute Heraldic Roll Comments on Their Accuracy And Relative Antiquity

It seems that every haunted house - on film, on television, in "The Scariest Places on Earth" - ends up being haunted because it was built right on top of "ancient Indian burial ground" - to which the deceased typically take offense. But what happens if you build right on top of Ancient Chute Burial Ground? In researching the history of Deacon James Chute, it seems that the folks in Madison, Indiana decided to build the John Paul Park where the "Old Third Street Cemetery" was located. And, rather than digging everyone up, they just moved the headstones to the Springdale Cemetery and left the remains where they were. Somewhere in the process, they lost James' headstone - along with that of his granddaughter, Elizabeth Hale. So, it appears that residents are enjoying the park ... possibly unaware that they're on top of a cemetery, minus its headstones. Hmmm. Wonder if anyone has been conked in the head by a haunted frisbee?

Steve Chute has compared the descriptions of both the Bethersden Chute Heraldic Roll and the scroll that Lionel Chute, Jr. was reported to have brought with him to Ipswich, Massachusetts. His findings can be found here, and a link to it can also be found in the Chute Family Research page. Any comments or questions are welcome. Thanks, Steve!

Chutes and Morrises! Tenuous Connection Between Nathaniel Chute, son of Lionel, and Philip of Appledore

The Chutes and Morrises is a rhyme that originated in Kerry as an amusing tribute to the young women of both the Chute and the Morris families and their suitors. It was quoted in an article on the Morris family written for "The Genealogical Magazine" in 1904; the author is quoting Mary Agnes Hickson, an often quoted Kerry historian, writing sketches for "Kerry Politics and Society in Bygone Days".

See Chutes and Morrises.

A very tenuous connection between a "Captain Nathaniel Chute" and Philip of Appledore via his daughter Ann/Anna Chute/Choute and her husband Sir Walter Waller, cropped up while verifying the background of Nathaniel Chute, son of Lionel Chute, Jr. Are there two - or even three - Captain Nathaniel Chute's, or is there a connection between the two families we hadn't found yet? Details of the research can be found in the Notes of Nathaniel Chute, son of Lionel Chute, Jr. and in the Notes of Sir Hardress Waller, great-grandson of Philip Chute of Appledore. You be the judge.

  • An article on The Two Wives of Lionel Chute, published by William Wyman Fiske for NEHGS in their quarterly journal in April of 2009. Response and reactions from Chute family genealogists followed soon thereafter. Again, all Chute family members are encouraged to read and respond. Many of us have seen the record of Lionel marrying Thomasine Barker on the Family website, and generally assumed that Thomasine and Rose Barker were in fact the same person. Do you think author is correct and Thomasine and Rose were in fact two different people?
