Notes on Ryan Bartt Chute and Marcie Andrie Heisler Chute:

Ryan Bartt Chute, married and the father of two sons and a farmer in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Province, Canada was taking his first flying lesson with a seasoned and experienced flying instructor on August 17, 2009, when the small aircraft unexpectedly crashed in a field near Saskatoon. Initial news reports identified only the instructor; later news reports confirmed the "unidentified passenger" as Ryan Chute. Following are the news reports and published obituaries of a man who was evidently very much loved in his community.

Moose Jaw's Ryan Chute remembered after fatal plane crash near Saskatoon

By Colin Dewar, Saskatchewan News Network August 20, 2009

MOOSE JAW — Ryan Chute is being remembered as a loving, caring father, husband, son and a "fantastic friend."

Chute, 28-years-old, died Monday when the ultralight aircraft he was taking flying lessons in with Vern Rees crashed in a wheat field about five kilometres southeast of the Corman Park Airstrip. "It was his first lesson," said Bart Chute, Ryan's father.

Bart was at the Corman Park Airstrip waiting for his lesson from instructor Rees, owner of the air park. Rees was also killed in the accident.

"I felt it was safe for him to take the lessons," said Bart. "I had quite a few lessons and I know that (Rees) follows all the safety standards. It was less dangerous than going snowmobiling in the mountains, which Ryan liked to do." Bart said he was the first to raise the alarm when the two men did not return to the airport at their scheduled time.

"I just thought they had a small problem with the engine and probably had to land in a field somewhere," said Bart. "(Rees) has shown me how to land in field in case of an emergency, it is quite easy flying in one of those planes." Bart said he never expected to hear that his son had died in a crash.

"I was in shock, I just couldn't understand," said Bart. "I lost a son and a friend."

Ryan's friends, Scott Durrant and Ryan Henneafert can not believe he is gone. "I'm really going to miss him," said Durrant. "The thing I'll remember most is the friendship, the fun stuff. All the things I liked doing was with him and our other friends."

Henneafert said Ryan was a leader. "He had a way about him, he would convince you to do anything," said Henneafert. "He was my brother, we talked three times a day, we were always in contact with each other."

Henneafert said Ryan thought of life as an adventure and wasn't one to live a cautious, quiet lifestyle. "He didn't live his life in a box, he was always doing something," said Henneafert.

Durrant said they had a couple of encounters with avalanches in the Rockies and just recently went on a biking trip through the back roads in British Columbia. Despite the snowmobiling trips to the mountains and the dual-sport motorcycle adventure trips, Durrant said Ryan loved his family most. "Anything his family needed or wanted to do, he always made sure it happened. He did more than he had to do."

Henneafert said his thoughts are with Ryan's wife, Marcie, and his two sons, Rhett, 4, and five month old Rogan. "Those boys had a fantastic father, the two of them are mini-mes of Ryan," said Henneafert.

Bart said Marcie was holding up reasonably well. "She has a lot of family around her, we are a very close family," said Bart. "Our faith in God has given us strength."

Ryan was also passionate about farming. "He was a great farmer. He was always just a phone call away for advice. He learned a lot from his dad," said Durrant. Besides family and farming, Durrant said his friend also loved sports, especially hunting, going to Warriors games and doing things on Buffalo Pound Lake.

Article and Obituary, MacLeans News, Canada

Ryan Bartt Chute 1980-2009: He loved working on the farm, and adventure. His latest passion was the freedom of flight.
by Rachel Mendleson

Ryan Bartt Chute was born on Sept. 13, 1980, in Moose Jaw, Sask., the second of four children to Bartt and Marla Chute. His parents were grain farmers whose sprawling fields, located about 25 km north of town, had been in the family since the 1920s. A "fun-loving" child, Ryan "loved to tuck his head in the crook of your neck and cuddle," says Marla. He was drawn to the outdoors—particularly whatever his dad was doing. As a toddler, he had his own corner in the tractor cab, complete with a pillow and blanket. "When he got tired, he'd lay down and have a sleep," says Bartt. The harvest was an early source of fascination. In late August, he would spend hours in the fields with his dad, watching him combine the lentils, peas and wheat.

A curious boy, Ryan trailed Bartt in the workshop, tinkering with the machinery. Like his father, he was eager to try new things, and fuelled his bent for adventure with dirt bikes, jet skis and snowmobiles, later learning to drive a motorcycle and a big rig. In school, Ryan's ability to elicit laughter made him a favourite among his classmates, if not always his teachers. "He spent a fair bit of time in the hallway," says friend Jason Doney. He extended his good-natured teasing to sisters Andrea and Alana, but was also protective — his brother Reid, born in 1985, died in infancy, and Ryan kept a close eye on them.

For Ryan, "there was no snowbank too deep or mountain too high," says Jason. He was mindful of avalanche warnings, but his fearlessness led to a few close calls. While snowmobiling in Golden, B.C., he and friend Scott Durrant were "high-marking" — trying to out-climb each other on the face of the mountain — when a three-metre overhang of snow broke free. "We went straight down as fast as we could," narrowly escaping the falling snow, says Scott. Ryan's enthusiasm was infectious. After honing his snowboarding skills during his family's annual trips to the Rockies, he taught his father and Alana to ride, an exercise that largely involved "leaving me at the top of the hill to figure it out on my own," Alana says. His example, however, instilled confidence. "I thought, 'If Ryan could do it, why couldn't I?' " she says. No matter the sport, says friend Ryan Hennenfent, "if he was involved in it and you weren't, you were soon to be." When he was little, Ryan's parents worried that the long stretches he spent in the tractor with Bartt might turn him off farming. In fact, as he later revealed, his decision to follow in his father's footsteps had been cemented at age four. In high school, he chose to help with the harvest instead of joining the football team, and became integral to the operation, mastering everything from spraying to hauling. After graduation, Ryan, who was raised in the Alliance Church, spent a year at Bible college before completing an agriculture course at the University of Saskatchewan. More than business partners, he and his dad were true friends.

Ryan was barely 20 when he started dating Marcie Andrie. But Marcie, two years his junior, had first set her sights on him as a young girl in Sunday school, and it became clear that "they were made for each other," says Jason. In 2001, Ryan took her to the legislature in Regina to see the Christmas lights. He got down on one knee and produced a ring, which he had hidden in his sock. She said "yes," and they were married the next summer. Regulars at Moose Jaw Warriors hockey games, they took up golfing and spent summer days at nearby Buffalo Pound Lake. Ryan had never been one to hold babies, but when son Rhett was born in 2004, "you couldn't pry him out of his hands," says Alana. (Son Rogan Reid followed in 2009.)

As his dad had done with him, Ryan encouraged Rhett's interest in farming. Ryan had his own farm, but continued working with Bartt, who had begun to hand over the reins. They remained just as close off the fields. In the spring, Bartt started taking flying lessons in an ultralight aircraft at an airstrip southwest of Saskatoon, and Ryan was eager to experience the freedom of flight. Bartt reasoned that it was less risky than snowmobiling in the mountains; both his instructor and the plane had flawless safety records.

On Aug. 13, Ryan went for an introductory flight, which he said "felt so different from anything else," says Bartt. With the harvest just days away, it would soon become difficult to indulge such whims; they booked his first formal lesson for Aug. 17. Bartt waited below as Ryan and the instructor took off into the clear evening sky. The plane never returned. Investigators don't yet know what caused the crash that killed both men, but the wreckage was discovered the next morning in a wheat field, five kilometres southeast of the airstrip. Ryan Chute was 28.

Obituary, Ryan Bartt Chute

"RYAN BARTT CHUTE RYAN, our precious husband, father, son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend was tragically taken from us on Monday, August 17th, 2009 at the age of 28 years. Ryan was born to Bartt and Marla Chute on September 13th, 1980. He received his education at Lindale School and A.E. Peacock Collegiate in Moose Jaw, and also attended Briercrest Bible College and the University of Saskatchewan. The education he enjoyed the most was that received by being at his father's side, whether in a truck or on the farm equipment. By the age of four years Ryan said he knew that farming was the only career he wanted for his life.

On July 13th, 2002 Ryan married the love of his life, Marcie Andrie, and they had been blessed by the birth of their two precious sons, Rhett Allan in 2004 and Rogan Reid in 2009. Ryan was always a very good-natured person, rarely without a smile on his face or something witty to say. He enjoyed life to the fullest and approached everything he did with great passion, everything from farming to his recreational activities of snowboarding, wakeboarding, snowmobiling, motor biking, golfing, archery and hunting. He enjoyed these activities with many of his friends but at the end of the day he was always anxious to get home to his family. Ryan will be deeply missed by his wife Marcie; sons Rhett and Rogan; parents Bartt and Marla Chute; sisters Andrea Garland (Rob) of Moose Jaw and Alana Chute (Mike Hazelton) of Edmonton; niece Aubrey Garland and nephew Brant Garland; mother-in-law and father-in-law Lorie and Rod Heisler; Marcie's siblings Daniel Andrie (Sarah Kretschmann), Hannah and Jacob Heisler; grandparents Anne Tilitzky, Allan and Margaret Chute, Lydia Andrie and Tom Taylor, all of Moose Jaw.

Ryan is also survived by aunts, uncles and cousins. Ryan was predeceased by his brother Reid Adam Chute in 1985 and his grandfather Neil Tilitzky in April of 2009. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, August 22nd, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. in the Hildebrand Chapel of Briercrest Bible College, Caronport, Sask. with Rev Wayne Andrie of Saskatoon officiating. Interment will take place at Rosedale Cemetery and those wishing to join the family at the graveside may do so by meeting at Moose Jaw Funeral Home by 12:15 p.m. For those so wishing, memorial donations in Ryan's memory may be made to the Canadian Sunday School Mission (Saskatchewan) for their summer camp ministry, P.O. Box 60, Caronport, Sk. S0H 0S0, and especially the camp at Glad Tidings near Mossbank, Box 100, Mazenod, Sask. S0H 2Y0, where Ryan attended and enjoyed many summers, an experience that helped mold him into the man he came to be. We have been blessed and our lives have been enriched by having Ryan in our family, loving him and having been loved by him. We will love you forever and miss you always, Ryan! Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Gary McDowell, Funeral Director.

Published in The Boston Globe on May 11, 2010


DURHAM — Elizabeth A. Chute of Durham, N.H., died peacefully at her home on Mother's Day, May 9, 2010, surrounded by friends and family. She gracefully and courageously battled breast cancer for 11 years, never allowing the disease to capture her spirit. She embraced each day with joy, optimism and gratitude.

Beth was born Oct. 20, 1943, to Mary and the late George O'Brien and grew up in Braintree, Mass., one of six children in a loving Irish Catholic household. She received her diploma RN certificate from St. Vincent Hospital Nursing School in Worcester, MA, in 1964 and later went on to St. Anselm College in NH to earn her BSN.

In addition to her nursing work, Beth started modeling and competed for the Miss Massachusetts title. She met her adoring husband, Kenneth Chute, in the summer of 1967 on Cape Cod. He was immediately smitten.

In 1969, they were married and two years later she and Ken moved to New Hampshire. With two little children and a full-time nursing job, she continued her education and earned her MSW from the University of Connecticut in 1985.

Beth was completely committed to the best care for her patients. From her career as an intensive care nurse in Boston, MA, to Clinical Coordinator and the Director of Community Support Programs at Strafford Guidance Center in Dover, to Director of the Behavioral Health Unit at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, she always provided caring compassion, professional nursing, social work and administrative skills. She was a natural nurturer and leader providing care, empathy and support to all those she worked with and for.

Beth was a recipient of the PRH Frist Humanitarian award and a co-facilitator of the PRH Breast Cancer Wellness Support Group, where she inspired and shared her wisdom. Beth was also an important member of the Metastatic Breast Cancer support group in Vermont.

Beth collected friends through every stage of her life, her "angels" and the love of these friends, her family and deep faith sustained her through 11 miraculous years living with cancer. Beth reciprocated by making each and every one of these friends feel extraordinarily special. She had an uncanny ability for raising spirits, teaching lessons, staying positive, finding humor, and loving life. Her friends and family would all agree that she had been an inspiration to each of them.

She loved kayaking, ice-skating, beach vacations and curling up with a good book by the fireplace at her cottage on the lake. In addition to her mother Mary, she is survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Kenneth Chute; her daughter, Erin Chute Gallentine and husband, Todd, and her son, William Chute. She will forever be the adored and loving "Nana" of grandchildren, Mazzy and Max. Beth is survived by four siblings, Robert, Joe, Margaret and Marylee and many cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and loved ones who mourn her loss and friendship.

Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, May 13, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the J. Verne Wood Funeral Home-Buckminster Chapel, on 84 Broad St. in Portsmouth. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 14, at Corpus Christi Parish at Immaculate Conception Church, located at 98 Summer St. in Portsmouth.

Notes on Noah Chute:

"Noah Chute, 21, chucks a beer bottle into the recycling container at Eckerd College, where a student-run program recycles about 1,500 pounds of glass a week.

"Noah Chute grew up in the Vermont woods, in a cabin with no electricity and a composting toilet. He doesn't believe in throwing things out. His family even saved old yogurt containers. Now he's 21 and an environmental studies major at Eckerd College. Each week, he and a handful of other students round up about 300 bins containing the aftermath of a typical college weekend: empty bottles of Bud Light, Blue Moon and Miller High Life, warmed by the sun. They recycle iced tea bottles and newspapers and all kinds of things, but it's the stench of warm beer that makes it a challenge.

"It dripped on me," says one girl.

"It smells bad," says another.

Eckerd is hardly a notorious party school, but it is a college campus. The student-run recycling program recycles 1,500 pounds of glass in an average week.

"Sometimes we get bins with puke all over them," Chute says.

Recycling supervisor Joana Cardao doesn't like to see all those beer bottles. But she points out: "I think it's great that even when students are drunk, they recycle."

Notes on Craig Kenneth Chute and Pamela Phillips Chute:

Obituary, Craig Kenneth Chute

In July of 2008, Kalispell Electric lost one of our team, but more importantly, a good friend.

Craig Kenneth Chute, 63, of Kalispell, passed away at his family home Monday, July 28, 2008. He was born Feb. 4, 1945, in Arlington, Va., the youngest of three children, to Kenneth and Virginia Chute.

With his father, Kenneth, working as an engineer in the U.S. Geological Survey, Craig and his family moved frequently between states, from New England to Florida. Although the Chute's roots were in Harrison, Maine, Craig experienced new towns and new schools 25 times in his childhood years. He spent his last two years of high school in Arlington, but his heart was in "small town" Indiana with its warmth of community and enthusiasm for basketball.

Always industrious, Craig excelled as a student and athlete wherever he went. He delivered newspapers and mowed lawns as a boy, and later took summer employment in Maine, developing and maintaining campsites for his Uncle Glenn and logging pulp wood with his Uncle Hartley. He also earned money for college working for the Geological Survey in Tennessee, as well as the Forest Service in New Hampshire. He was recognized for his natural athletic abilities and good sportsmanship at every school he attended; his enjoyment of playing basketball followed him everywhere.

After graduating from high school in 1963, Craig headed west on the train to attend Colorado State University for a short time. Disappointed with the area and the size of the school, he bought an old 1948 Willy's Jeep for $500 and ventured north to Montana. With his sights on going to the smoke-jumper's school, he arrived in Missoula in mid-November, only to find that there weren't many fires to worry about during the winter time in Montana. By happenstance, he discovered the university (then Montana State University) in its magnificent setting and made arrangements to return as a student the following year. Fall quarter 1964, Craig not only entered the "U" as a freshman, but was a walk-on for the Grizzly basketball program.

It was at the university that he met the girl that would later become his wife, Pamela Phillips, of Kalispell.

He had found the person to watch beautiful sunsets with, but with the draft, the 1960s were a tumultuous era for college students. After much thought, in the spring of 1966, Craig decided to leave college and sign up for a tour of duty with the Marine Corps. As his family's first representative in the military in several generations, Craig went off to boot camp at Camp Pendleton. He received numerous platoon honors, went on to be trained in an artillery division and served in Vietnam. Stateside, and recovering at Bethesda, he was reassigned to Camp LeJeune in North Carolina.

Craig and Pam were married in the First Presbyterian Church of Kalispell on Oct. 9, 1967. The return journey to North Carolina (honeymoon) was via the Trans-Canadian Highway to his grandparents' farm in Maine and then south along the eastern seaboard to the Marine base.

After numerous training missions to the Carribbean and Mediterranean, Craig received an early honorable discharge from the Marine Corps in December 1968. Pam and Craig returned to live and work in Montana and to re-enter college, where Craig rekindled his love for literature.

His first civilian job after the military was finding employment at a small electrical wholesale company, Mountain West Electric. This was the beginning of the Craig that most people know. He truly enjoyed the challenges, as well as the folks that he came in contact with. It was the beginning of a lifelong passion and an all-consuming occupation. When the business sold, Craig was asked to open a branch in Kalispell, becoming the youngest manager in the company's large system. Whether working as an electrician or managing an electrical wholesale branch, Craig was always generous with his time and knowledge, being a friend and problem-solver to all. The 24 years with Crescent Electric and his past seven years with Kalispell Electric brought him great pleasure. His quick wit and silly jokes will always be remembered. Of course, he never tired of frustrating his family with reminding them that his favorite day of the week was Monday.

With family and animals waiting for him at home along the Stillwater River, Craig carved out a Chute niche, building shelters, barns and fences for cattle, horses and hay. He constructed a cabin in 1973 from a 100-year-old barn that he dismantled at Skyline Dairy; later designing and building the house on the hill for his growing brood. He loved his pastoral surrounding, marveling at the geese overhead and the resident deer population, with new fawns appearing every spring. It all served as a soothing respite from the busy work schedule that he kept.

His three children and their personal accomplishments were the pride of his life. The hectic years of baseball, softball, soccer and football were fun and filled with traveling. Coaching PeeWee baseball and hauling loads of grinning kids to various sporting events was his idea of the perfect vacation. He has lovingly followed their young adult adventures with as much enthusiasm. Craig always said that one of his greatest rewards has been to see each one finish college and go on to a career.

Now with a new generation of babies in the family tree, Craig took loving pleasure in being a grandpa. Reading stories with grandchildren on his lap, having a cribbage contest with team Ethan-Caleb, coloring with Carter and Emma (Carter and grandpa's favorite color is black), or working a puzzle with Carissa, was gentle fun for everyone.

One of his greatest pleasures, outside of work, was taking family road trips, seeking out alternate routes on less-traveled highways. He was a genius at many things, but unsurpassed was his innate knowledge and memory of places, people, and the U.S. road systems. The planning process was extensive, and the family's rewards for his efforts were great. Most recently, Craig and Pam celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with a trip to Maine and the Maritime provinces, finding lighthouses and covered bridges along the way.

Craig was a wonderfully complex man — a great friend to many and a lover of solitude, and a deep thinker who found joy in the simple pleasures of life. He loved literature, art, music and historical study, particularly of the Northwest and Native American culture. He was an honest and gracious person who will be missed by his family and all the friends he made along the way.

Craig was preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Pam, at the family home in Kalispell; his brother, Philip Chute, of Eau Claire, Wis.; his brother, Clifton Chute, of Bristol, Ind.; his son, Ethan, and wife, Lisa Chute, of Otsego, Minn.; his daughter, Jessica Chute, of Kalispell; his son, Ira Chute, of San Francisco; and his four grandchildren, Caleb and Carissa Chute of Otsego, and Carter and Emma Chute of Kalispell.

Note    N93-1815         Back to Index        Back to Sir John Taylor, Lord of Shadockhurst and Bridgit or Bridget Rucke Taylor.

Notes on Sir John Taylor, Lord of Shadockhurst and Bridgit or Bridget Rucke Taylor:

The following correction was written by Susan D. Young of "Ancestral Solutions". While we never suggested that Philip of Appledore was the father of Bridget Rucke, we did mis-identify her as "Bridget Buck".

RUCKE, Bridget, Shadoxhurst, Kent, England

"Bridget Rucke was the wife of John Taylor of Shadoxhurst and this fact is not disputed. What is disputed is the misinformation concerning the identity of Bridget's father, which can currently be found on the world-wide web. There are at least two postings of misinformation - one on the World Connect Project of RootsWeb, and one in Ancestral File of familysearch.org. I believe that the first mentioned instance of error - the World Connect Project information - was made as the result of non-verification of sources used to compile the second mentioned instance of error - Ancestral File.

In both instances the reputed father of Bridget Rucke has been erroneously given as being Philip Chute. Bridget's father was, in fact, Richard Rucke, one time mayor of Rye, Sussex, England. How did this error come about? From my research I have discerned that the Mediaeval Families Unit of the Genealogical Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints incorrectly entered the information found in a footnote to the Taylor genealogy that is set out in Burke's Commoners. Page 238 of volume iv of Burke's Commoners states:

"He [John Taylor] m. secondly, Bridget, daughter of Richard Rucke, of Rye, and by her (whose will was dated in 1619) he had issue,..."

The reference to Philip Chute refers to the first wife of the same John Taylor, who was named Elizabeth, "eldest daughter of Philip Chute, of Bethersden,...". This error has been brought to the attention of the Mediaeval Families Unit and a Post-em Display was added to the information of the World Connect Project. Unfortunately, my Post-em Display has now been removed from the World Connect Project but the information not corrected and I have been informed that information submitted to Ancestral File by the Mediaeval Families Unit is rarely, if ever, amended."

Spencer Joshua Alwyne Compton, 2nd Marquess of Northampton (2 January 1790 - 17 January 1851), known as Lord Compton from 1796 to 1812 and as Earl Compton from 1812 to 1828, was a British nobleman and patron of science and the arts. The second son of the 9th Earl of Northampton (later the First Marquess), Compton studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, receiving an M.A. in 1810. In 1812, following the assassination of his cousin, the prime minister Spencer Perceval, Compton, by now Earl Compton as heir to the Marquessate, took his seat for Northampton in the House of Commons. In the Commons, Compton established a reputation as something of a maverick. Despite his family's strong Tory credentials, he often voted against the Tory government of the day. This led to his losing his seat in the general election of 1820. On 24 July 1815 Compton married Margaret Douglas-Maclean-Clephane, who was herself a poet admired by Sir Walter Scott and William Wordsworth, although her poetry was not published. The marriage was a happy one, producing six children. The couple lived in Italy for ten years from 1820 to 1830. Compton succeeded his father as Marquess of Northampton in 1828. Following Lady Northampton's death in the latter year, Northampton returned to England. Among their children were: Charles Compton, 3rd Marquess of Northampton (1816-1877), Lady Marianne Margaret Compton (1817-1888), Admiral William Compton, 4th Marquess of Northampton (1818-1897). Following his return to England, Compton became a prominent figure in political and cultural life. He supported the Reform Bill in the House of Lords, but became more engaged in promotion of the arts and sciences. In 1820-22 he was president of the Geological Society of London. He served as president of the Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland (1845-46 and 1850-51), and in 1838 became president of the Royal Society, an office he held for ten years. He took a particular interest in geology, and particularly in fossils, although he was not himself a scientist, but more of an interested amateur. He resigned in 1848, due to his opposition to the Society's increasing professionalization. He held the position of President of the Royal Society of Literature from 1849 until his death.

Notes on James Chute and (Given name unknown) Grenfield or Greenfield Chute:

"John2 and Jane had a son Edward3* m. Christiana Chiddiock, dau. of Sir John C, and had issue, temp. Edw. III. 1308*, the three following sons: Phillip44 of Taunton, m. the dau. of Sir John Brittan; James4 m. the dau. of Richard Greenfield; Anthony4m. Anna Indford*, and d. s. p."

Source: The Heraldic Register Recording the Armorial Bearings and Genealogies of American Families, page 142

*Clearly, there are problems with this source. John and Jane's son is consistently identified in other sources as "Cuthbert", not "Edward" and this is also the only source that mentions "Indford" instead of "Treforth", the latter clearly visible as such in the BCHR. I'm not at all sure where he came by the name of "Indford"; it could be a typesetter's error, a mistranscription or copied, erroneously or not, from an unknown source. As the BCHR identifies Anthony's wife as "Treforth", we are using "Treforth" until there is a compelling reason to change or correct it. I suspect "Edward" was merely sloppily transposed from "Temp. Edw. III", which is also incorrect. It was King Edward II (25 April 1284 – 21 September 1327(?)) who reigned from 1307 until he was deposed by his wife Isabella in January 1327. King Edward III was born on 13 November 1312 and died 21 June 1377.

*Clearly, there are problems with this source. John and Jane's son is consistently identified in other sources as "Cuthbert", not "Edward" and this is also the only source that mentions "Indford" instead of "Treforth", the latter clearly visible as such in the BCHR. I'm not at all sure where he came by the name of "Indford"; it could be a typesetter's error, a mistranscription or copied, erroneously or not, from an unknown source. As the BCHR identifies Anthony's wife as "Treforth", we are using "Treforth" until there is a compelling reason to change or correct it. I suspect "Edward" was merely sloppily transposed from "Temp. Edw. III", which is also incorrect. It was King Edward II (25 April 1284 – 21 September 1327(?)) who reigned from 1307 until he was deposed by his wife Isabella in January 1327. King Edward III was born on 13 November 1312 and died 21 June 1377.


"Cuthbert Chute, who m. in the reign of Edward II Christian, daughter of Sir John Chideoke, knt. and had (with two other sons, James who espoused the daughter of Richard Grenfeld; and Anthony, m. to Anne Treforth), Philip Chute, flourishing temp. Edward III, who m. a daughter of Sir John Britton and left, at his decease, a daughter Joane, the wife of Sir John Carmine, and a son and successor, George Chute, lord of the manor of Taunton in 1334; this gentleman wedded a daughter of Thomas Tirrell and was s. by his son."

Notes on Edmund Chute and Dyonice or Dionis Sturton or Stourton Chute:

"George5 had Ambrose6 of Taunton, m. Amabel Chittester, daughter of Sir John C, and had Edward7* and Christian7*. The former m. about 1379, Dionis, daughter of Henry Stourton, the latter (Christian7) m. Ralph Mansell, Esq. Edward7 and Dionis had Henry8 1420, m. the dau. of Edward Hasherfield, Esq.; William8 m. , and d. s.p.; Anthony8 m. the dau. of Sir John Clifton, and had Christopher9 of Hertfordshire, who m. the dau. of Richard Wellgrave, Esq., and Robert9 sergeant at law, and later Baron of the Exchequer, temp. Henry VI*. Henry8 had issue, Robert9 of Taunton, who m. Alice, dau. of Mark Bartley, Esq.; and Anna9 who m. John Stanley*."

Source: The Heraldic Register Recording the Armorial Bearings and Genealogies of American Families, page 142

* More errors with this source: The given name for the son of Ambrose, according to the BCHR, is "Edmund" and not "Edward". His sister's name is more widely known as "Christiane" or "Christiana", rather than "Christian". The information regarding Robert has been proven erroneous - this was Robert Shute, and not Chute. There may or may not have been a Robert Chute in this generation, but he was defintely not "sergeant at law and Baron of the Exchequer, temp. Henry VI". Henry's daughter Anna married John Scutley, not John Stanley.


"...Ambrose Chute, who m. Anabell, daughter of Sir John Chichester, and had a daughter Christian, the wife of Ralph Menell, amd a son and heir, Edmond Chute, living in 1379, who espoused Dyonice, daughter of Henry Stourton and had, with three other sons, viz., William who m. a daughter of ___ Archdekne; Anthony who wedded a daughter of Sir John Clifton, knt and Robert, a baron of the Exchequer, temp Henry VI*, Henry Chute who m. Joane, daughter of Edward Baskerville; and had a daughter Anne, the wife of Sir John Scutley, knt., and a son and heir, Robert Chute."

*This is incorrect. This individual was Robert Shute of the Shute family, not a Chute. At this point we're not sure there was a Robert Chute in this generation, or if only his occupation was in error.

"Henry Stourton, living temp. Edward III., whose daughter, Dionis Stourton, married circa 1379, Edward Chute, of Taunton, Co. Somerset. Berry calls him Edmund Chute, and his wife, Dyonice. In an ancient tabular pedigree on parchment, compiled about 1709, which was in 1859 in the possession of Ariel P. Chute, of Lynnefield, Massachusetts, it is stated that Edward Chute, whose descent is shewn, sprang from one Alexander Chute or Chewte, of Taunton, who was living 1268 ..."

Peter Stourton is given as living temp. Edward III., whose daughter, Dyana Stourton, says Berry in his Hants. Genealogies, married Robert Pistar, whose son, Anthony Pistar, married Mabel, daughter of Sir John Chidiock; and daughter, Jane Pistar, married Robert Dennis, of Co. Gloucester. It is a curious coincidence that the families of Chidiock and Dennis are mentioned as being connected with the Stourtons, of Stourton, Co. Wilts."

URL is below, but link leads to a document that has been run through an ineffectual text recognition program without subsequent proofreading and is largely illegible. However, I also found it interesting that the Chutes married into the Stourton and Chideake familes, within a relatively short period of time.
