      Chaney Lineage



          This Chaney Line Is Still Being Researched, The Information Below Is What I Have Gathered Together As Accurately As Possible. Errors May Occur So When Reading This Remember To Do Your Own Research. If You Have Information To The Contrary And Valid Documented Proof, Let Me Know In A Friendly Manner.

          The Coat Of Arms Shown On The Families Are The Generally Accepted Versions. There Are Several Variations Of These To Accept And Use A Version Of Your Families Coat Of Arms Without Official Documentation And Proof Is At Your Own Preference. As This Is Mine. Some Surnames Have No Coat Of Arms Associated With Them At All,And The Chances Of Being Related Fo Someone Who Did Are Slim.
          The Chaney Family However, Has Several Knights And Sirs And Barons In The History, So There Is A Good Possibility For A Direct Link.(None Documented Yet As I Can Find).



          (Chaney,Cheyne,Cheney,Chinia,Chenery,Cheyney,And Chine,)
          All Spellings Of The Original Name.
          Some Cheneys,Cheyne's, Chaneys, Listed In England:
          The Brass Plate Photo Above Is Of Margaret Cheyne,D:1419
          Hever,Kent:

          In 1368 Thomas Cheyne Died, He Has A Brass Plate Depicting His Photo At Drayton Beauchanp Buckinghamshire Along With His Brother William (Died) 1375.
          Thomas Cheyne Was A Shield Bearer For Edward The Iii... Sir John Cheyney, Kent, Whose Ancestors Held Feudal Rights On The Isle Of Sheppy Was Made Knight Bannaret And Knight Of The Garter By Henryvii For Gallantry At Bosworth Field, A Battle During The War Of The Roses In Which Richard Iii Was Killed. The Battle Took Place In 1485. He Became The Speaker Of The House Of Commons And Was Elevated To The Peerage As Baron Cheyney Of Shurland. His Father John Cheney Has A Plate Brass, At Hanbury Staffordshire. Brass Plates Were Often Set In Church Floors Of Prominent Members Of The Church Or County. A Popular Hobby Today Is Using A Special Wax Crayon And Rubbing The Picture Off And Framing It.


          There Are Several Brass Plates Around England Of The Cheyne,S, Cheney,S,And Chanu.
          Listed Are Their Names, Dates Died And Location Of Their Brass Plate.

          John Cheney Died 1450 Hanbury Staffordshire

          There Were Lesser Amorial Branches Of The Cheney Family In County Kent, But All Shared Common Descendants.
          Throughout These Branches The Name Of Richard Was Common.
          In Those Days The First Born Was Named After The Father, The Second The Grandfather, Etc. The First Born Daughter Was Named After The Mother And So On. The Practice Produced Many With The Same Names.
          There Are 23 Richards In This Line.
          On February 28,1643 24 Subjects Of The Crown In The Parish Of Ripple, Signed A Proclamation Upholding Loyalty To The King And In Defense Of Religion. One Of The Signers Was Richard Cheney, Who Is The Richard Cheney Of Cheney's Resolution, Maryland. There Is Strong Evidence That They Are One And The Same.


          This Earliest Record Is Of Richard, Born 1565 In Kent,Isle of Sheppy England,
          The Isle of Sheppey is an island off the northern coast of Kent, England in the Thames Estuary, some 46 miles to the east of London England. It is only 36 square miles.
          He Married Elizabeth Offley At St. Marys London
          As Was The Custom, His First Born Son Was Named Richard.

          Richard Was Born 1-25-1595 In London And At St. Marys', He Married Anne Ellinoir,
          3 June 1622 Hackney Middlesex London England

          Anne Arundel Gentry, Volume I, 2nd Edition States: "The Cheney (Cheyney)Family Of Ancient Antiquity Was Ennobled In England, But Through Extravagance And Being Royalists During The Civil Wars Lost Most Of Their Property.
          There Is Every Reason To Believe That The Maryland Emigrant Was A Scion Of The Ennobled Family. The Earliest Entries In The All Hallows Parish, Anna Arundel County, Maryland Are Those Of The Cheyney (Cheney)Family. The Date Of The Entry Precedes The Date Of The Establishment Of The Parish.
          It Is Evident That The Family Kept Their Own Records.
          He Probably Landed In Virginia And Moved To Anne Arundel County, Maryland With His Wife Charity. He Is Mentioned As A Signer Of A Proclamation Of Loyalty To The King.
          Richard And His Wife, Charity, Migrated To Maryland And Settled In The South River Hundred Of Anne Arundel County.
