Thanks Cliff for the heads up on these extra names...none of which I had, other than Charles Chancy.

There was a William and Mary Chancey that had two sons, John b. 1767 and William b. 1769 christened at St. Peter's Parish, New Kent, Virginia. I have never found anything further for these.

DNA has now linked us SE Georgia Chancy/Chancey's to the Bladen/Columbus County, NC Chancy/Chauncey's. All of my genealogy indicates those were descended from John, the son of Zachariah from Pasquotank/Perquimans NC, and from there back to the Edmund who died in Albermarle Co in 1680. Dempsey, John and Thomas are thought to have been brothers, and along with a later Zachariah (1800 census only) are believed to have been sons of John. This is the only Chancy/Chancey's in old Bladen County that I have ever found.

There appears to have been no male survivors of the original Pasquotank/Perquimans clan, (other than John in Bladen Co.) One went to Michigan about 1830 and died there, his son Edmund had a family but produced only females and one son who had no children. This Edmund went to California after his father Micajah died in 1854 in Berrien County, Michigan. Edmund and that family in CA divorced and he returned to Michigan, remarried and raised another family (the one above)...but from both marriages there appears to have been no male survivors.

There is a possibility he (Edmund d. 1680) was the immigrant Chancey, but of course he may have been born in this country. I have found no Edmund or Edward Chancey (any spelling) as an immigrant, but have found an Edward of the appropriate age born near London who could be. I am in the process of contacting some researchers in or near London, especially one that is familiar with the Quaker archives of that time period. I am probably chasing my tail again, but it needs to be done.

The only Chancey that is shown to have come here in the 1600s (besides Charles) was an Alexander Chancey who arrived here in 1675 going to Maryland.

OOPS'SS...sorry Cliff, I get carried away sometimes.

Hope all is well for you and yours...Carole tries to keep us notified if/when she hears from you.
