About Christopher Champlin

Christopher Champlin (1731–1805) was a merchant, shipowner, and financier of Newport, Rhode Island. He was born in Charlestown, Rhode Island, the oldest son of Colonel Christopher Champlin (1707 – 1766) and Hannah (Hill) Champlin. Earlier generations of the Champlin family had moved from Newport to the Narragansett country. The colonel became a fairly prosperous “ Narragansett Planter ” ; however, all three brothers, Christopher, Robert, and George, moved back to Newport in the 1750s and established themselves in the mercantile community.
