Notes for Michael Chatterdon:
In 1740, Michael was living in Scarsdale, three miles north of Eastchester, New York. In 1745, "ye furst tuesday in April chosen over zeers to Bronxis Tiever, Mickel Chatterton." Michael was an overseer for the Manor at Philipsburgh. In 1750 Michael purchased land near the northwest corner of White Plains from Daniel and Nathan Purdy. This land on the Bronx River later became the site of Chatterton Hill. Chatterton Bridge which crosses the Bronx at the foot of the hill was first erected in 1736. In 1752 Michael was elected Constable and collector of Philipsburgh. The third Lord of Philips Manor sided with the British during the Revolution and his land was confiscated and divided amongst his tenants after the war.
Michael was about 71 years old when his home was the site of the Battle of White Plains, now called Chatterton Hill. At that time the hill was called Bronx Heights. The street in front of the house (which still stands) is on Battle Avenue built in 1732. The British burned the church on their property, so that all records were lost. But the story has been handed down from Jonathan, III, that "grandmother" melted her pewter spoons and dishes into bullets and passed them to the soldiers fighting in front of the house situated on a hill overlooking the river and Bronx Bridge. If the four sons listed were sons of Michael, then Abraham and Betts are definitely brothers, and Jonathan and Lewis are either half-brothers or cousins.
Notes for Mary:
Mary is believed to have been born in Bedford, Connecticut. Connecticut claimed this part of the state of New York at that time.
She was buried at North Broadway and Rockledge Ave. Presbyterian Church burying ground (some Revolutionary War soldiers are also buried there). The inscription on her monument reads: "Mary, wife of Michael Chadderton, born June 25 1706, married in 1727, and lived in that state 45 years, OB. 1772."

Notes for Michael Chatterton:
Michael, born in England in 1605, was the first Chadderdon ancestor in the New World. His father may have been Thomas Chatterton and he might have had a brother William. It is estimated that he married Jane Woodward about 1626 and they had a son, William, born about 1627. Possibly a Puritan, Michael probably immigrated in 1640 on the "Belkan" (or Pied Cow, records are uncertain), arriving at Strawberry Bank, New Hampshire listing his occupation as Yeoman (farmer). "To their delight, when the sea-weary travelers on the Pied Cow disembarked on the west bank of the Piscataqua River in 1630, they found the ground covered with wild strawberries. Thus was founded and named Strawberry Banke, the little settlement that took root around a tidal inlet and grew into the thriving seaport of Portsmouth." The Chatterton family were possibly among the travelers. On 25 May 1640: "The Piscataqua Settlements...the lower river settlement...townspeople of Strawberry Bank...wrote a declaration of union...". The seventh name on this list 20 persons is "Michael Chatterton".

Michael appears in the census of 23 may 1642 as an inhabitant of Westchester County. Apparently marital problems occurred. Records show: "Jane 'ux...Chatterton' was bound by Piscataqua court in 1642 to answer at next court or else go to her husband. (The) order (was) repeated in 1646." It is estimated that William, son of Michael and Jane, was a teenager at the time of these domestic troubles. A man named James Woodward, possibly his maternal grandfather, became William's benefactor. In 1648, when William was about 21, he was "a legatee and the executor of the Nuncupative will of James Woodward." It is estimated that William was married about that time. Michael sold his house to William Latham in New Haven, Connecticut in 1645, and bought land 2 Jun 1679 in Yonkers. He sold land 15 Mar 1676 in Flushing and on 25 Jun became overseer of Fordham Manor. On 3 Aug 1681 he notified a change of residence from North Riding to Eastchester, New York.
       
Child of Michael Chatterton and Jane Woodward is:
       32       i.       William Chatterton, born Abt. 1627 in England; died 1679; married <Unnamed> Abt. 1648.
