Birth

The Good Intent: The Story and Heritage of a Fresno Family
Author: John Renning Phillips
Published: New York: Magnolia Group Press, 2007.
p. 430.
John Chaplin (the father of John Chaplin who married Phoebe Ladson) was born in England in 1636 and married Ann Skinner in England.

He was an immigrant who arrived in Charleston from England (perhaps via Barbados) in either 1662 or 1672, initially as an indentured servant. He originally settled in James Island, and then moved to St. Helena in 1720. He and his wife Ann received a warrant for land in South Carolina on January 25, 1678.

John and Ann testified before the Grand Council that he had been among the Yemassee Indians and that he had personally witnessed arms being delivered by the Spanish to the Indians. This was prior to the Yemassee uprising of 1715.

The John Chaplin who arrived in Carolina in 1672 sailed from Barbados as an indentured servant of the Colleton family. He was not a wealthy man. In 1678, John Chaplin and his wife Ann were granted 140 acres of land on the north side of the Stono River, which would have placed them on James Island, just below the peninsula that became the city of Charleston. Under the headright system of 1672, a man who completed a six-year term of servitude was entitled to 70 acres, as was a free female, while a woman who completed her servitude was entitled to 50 acres. John and Ann Chaplin's 140 acres may have represented 70 acres he earned by fulfilling his servant's contract plus 70 acres she had coming as a free woman. They could have been married before they emigrated. It was not unusual for a husband to come first, serve his six years, then send for his wife to join him.

In 1684, we find John Chaplin testifying before the provincial Grand Council that he had observed the Spanish delivering arms to Yamassee Indians. The next year, Chaplin sold part of his tract on James Island - he identified himself in this transaction as a carpenter - and lost the rest of it for nonrepayment of a debt. He, his wife, and their young son John, Jr., joined the march of failed and disgruntled settlers away from Charles Towne, south to the Combahee River, two-thirds of the way to Port Royal.
