      Deacon John Cheney and Mary Chute Cheney:

      "Who were the deacons of the new church [i.e. of the Byfield Parish]? This question has never, so far as I know, been fully answered. William Moody, the husband of Mehetabel Sewall, was one. But who was his associate? It has been said that Joshua Boynton, who was born in 1640, was one of the first deacons, but I find no evidence to support that statement. I know no law requiring a small church to have two deacons, but the Weston church records contain this entry:
      Deacon John Cheney and Mary his wife recomendd and dismissd from a Chh in Newbury (under ye Pastoral care of Mr Hale) rec'd into or Comunion Aug. 23, 1724." ("Cheney Family," p. 232)
      John Cheney was a son of Peter the mill-builder and owned for a time part of the estate now held by Mr. Benjamin Pearson and his family. He was a worthy and enterprising man, who made four or five removals during his life. This record indicates that he was a deacon in the Byfield church in or before 1724. He was born in 1666, and lived in Byfield as early as 1693; so that it is very possible that he was one of the original deacons."
