Nathaniel Chew b. 1666

  of 856

Nathaniel Chew (b. 1666) was a son of Col Samuel Chew. According to Col Chew's will, Nathaniel Chew was to inherit 500 acres of land known as Popinjay. But the will lists sons to be of age at 21 years, so he couldn't take title of the property until 1687. However the will also states that in the case of death, inheritance would revert to the four youngest sons: William, Benjamin, John, and Caleb. William, who turned 21 in 1690, was the oldest of this group and was in court in 1692 asking that the land be resurveyed for the benefit of himself and his three brothers. So Nathaniel, whose death is sometimes listed as 1695, must have died before 1687.
