About Lt. Isaac Chase

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Chase-271

Isaac Chase was the first of the name to settle on Martha's Vineyard.

Isaac was the progenitor of the Chase family of Martha's Vineyard.

How he came to the island is unknown but it might have been through

Quakers from Salisbury, Mass., who had already started settling Nantucket.

In any case, he initially intended to settled in Tisbury (1674),

"but the townsmen refused the privilege to him for some reason at that time,"

possibly due to his Quaker beliefs.[2]

Biography

Isaac Chase was born in Hampton, NH, 1 April 1650,

third son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Philbrick) Chase.

He remained there til at least October 1673.[1]

Isaac was the progenitor of the Chase family of Martha's Vineyard. How he came to the island is unknown but it might have been through Quakers from Salisbury, Mass., who had already started settling Nantucket. In any case, he initially intended to settled in Tisbury (1674), "but the townsmen refused the privilege to him for some reason at that time," possibly due to his Quaker beliefs.[2]

While he resided for a time at Homes Hole, "in the uttermost part of the town, many miles from the dwellings of any settlers," he purchased land within the town limits by 1675.

That he was a man of wealth is suggested by the fact that by 1700, he was one of the largest landholders on the Vineyard. He became sole proprietor of Homes Hole, had significant property in the Chickemmoo which, despite being subject of dispute with the Sachem and the town, which he continued to add to over the years.[3] He rarely sold any of his holdings, most of which passed down to his heirs.

Isaac made his living as blacksmith, inn-holder, and ferryman. While a Quaker, he held military office as Lieutenant in the Company of Foot in Tisbury before 1692, and was known as "Mr. Isaac Chase the Leueten't without oath he pleading for the quakers."[4] This is the only reference to his Quaker proclivities of Chase on record. He continued to be referred to as Lieutenant throughout his life.

Isaac Chase married first Feb. 20, 1673 Mary, daughter of Isaac Perkins of Hampton, by whom he had no issue.

He married second Oct. 5, 1675 Mary Tilton, probably sister of Samuel of Hampton and Chilmark. They were married by Rev. John Mayhew. This marriage produced 12 children that subsequently produced a large progeny in Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.[5]

Isaac died May 19, 1727, and his will, dated Feb. 12, 1721-2, was proven in July, 1727. By it he bequeathed what lands he had not given away in his lifetime to his widow and surviving children and grandchildren. He'd deeded the Chickemmoo property to his several sons between 1706 and1718; he deeded the Homes Hole neck between 1705 and 1717 to sons Thomas, Isaac and Abraham. But by 1725 the Chickemmoo property remained undivided and "Lieut. Isaac and his son Abraham entered suit against the heirs of Thomas and Ebenezer Rogers for a partition. This was done, and the division then made by the jury is the basis of all land titles in Vineyard Haven north of the creek in front of the hospital."

He was buried at South End Cemetery, Tisbury, Dukes County, Massachusetts. His gravestone reads:

"Here lies the body of Lt Isaac Chase who died May ye 19 1727 aged about 80 years"[6] Children
