The Chase Genealogy

This section, starting on page 199, is among the published items that maintain that Aquilla Chase, born 1618, was the son of Aquilla Chase, born 1580. According to Source:Chase, John Carroll. Seven Generations of the Descendants of Aquila and Thomas Chase (page 9), this is a largely unsubstantiated supposition, and it appears that the lineages here in Werelate abide by this being unsubstantiated.
