      Rockingham County did not exist in 1746 in the state of New Hampshire. It was not founded until 1769.

      Samuel Chute: Taken to Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia with his parents in 1759. Died crossing the Annapolis River to hear Reverend Thomas Handley Chipman preach. His death inspired a rather lengthy poem, penned by a C.E.W., Chute p. 27.
      "The family of SAMUEL CHUTE proved to be a very prolific one, and his descendants may be reckoned by hundreds. There is scarcely a county in the Province that does not contain the home of one or more of them. (p.199)
      The Chutes are of pre-loyalist date, and a branch of their family settled here at an early period. Thomas Chute, one of the early settlers of Granville, married Sybil, the eldest sister of the late Andrew Marshall (my maternal grandfather), and bore him a very large family, the members ,of which and their descendants are domiciled in various places in the Province, but most generally in this county. (p. 256)
      CHUTE. All the numerous family of Chute in this and the neighboring counties are descended from John CHUTE, who was born at Byfield, in Rowley, Mass., June, 1792, and married at Timberlane, now Hampstead, N.H., Judith, dau. of Benjamin and Sarah Foster, a sister of the Isaac and Ezekiel who founded the Nova Scotia families of Foster. He was great-great-grandson of Lionel Chute, the noted school-teacher of the infant town of Ipswich, who came over from Dedham, Essex County, England, in 1634, and was of a family that came over with William the Conqueror. Baron Le Chute commanded a regiment of Norman troops at the battle of Hastings. John Chute came here in 1759 and was probably the first artificer in iron to settle in Granville. The lot he settled on was in recent times still occupied by the late Dimock Chute in his lifetime. He died November, 1791. The County of Annapolis in every section owes much to the thrift and energy of the descendants of John Chute.
