Samuel Chapin settled in Roxbury, 1638, and is supposed to have come from Dartmouth, England. In 1642 he removed to Springfield, Massachusetts, where he became a leader in the community, and died in 1675. An imposing statue of him by St. Gardens, entitled “The Puritan,” adorns one of the public parks in Springfield. It is thought that he may have been of Huguenot ancestry, and his wife’s name is recorded as Cicely (Cecile?).
