St. John the Baptist Church.
The famous statue, "The Puritan" by Augustus Saint-Gauden s in Springfield is of Samuel Chapin. Samuel Chapin came t o America in 1635. He is on the records of Roxbury, MA by 1 639.
He had moved to Springfield, MA by 1643. Soon after hi s arrival, he began to hold public office. On September 26 , 1644, he was chosen as one of 5
for the first Board of Selectmen in Springfield. The y were elected by a vote of all the freemen of the town an d had a general supervision of the affairs of
the town including settling disputes, regulating highw ays, bridges, finances, etc. He served in that capacity fo r 8 years. On May 1, 1645 he is on record
as a constable. It is not certain how long he served.
Excerpts from The Life of Deacon Samuel Chapin by Howa rd Millar Chapin: 1647 was a hard year. There were floods i n the spring, caterpillars in the
summer and sickness in the fall. Wolves were a nuisanc e so a bounty of 10s was offered for every dead one. Swin e also caused a great deal of trouble
and damage by running loose through the village.
In 1648, a still more troublesome disturbance broke ou t. Hugh Parsons and his wife were accused of witchcraft. Th e excitement was intense and they
were brought to trial. They were tried in Boston wher e they were finally convicted in 1650. Mary died in priso n and Hugh escaped and left the country.
But before this trouble was settled, a worse one began . William Pynchon, the mainstay of Springfield, was convict ed of heresy by the General Court.
He was immediately deprived of his office and in 1652 , with his son-in-law Henry Smith, and the minister Mr. Mox on, returned to England...thus
leaving the magistracy vacant. Three men came to the f ront and took control of the affairs of the town, governin g it until their deaths. Two of these men
were closely related to William Pynchon - his son Joh n and his son-in-law Holyoke-the third was the Deacon, Samu el Chapin.
On October 19, 1652 [they] were appointed Commissioner s... That is they had full power and authority to govern th e inhabitants of Springfield. The
new commissioners soon established a strong governmen t in Springfield. A vigorous enforcement of the law and th e prompt prosecution of criminals
showed that firm and earnest men were directing the af fairs of state.
Samuel Chapin was actively interested in the church an d appears to have been a deacon as early as 1650. [During 1 656, the town was without a
minister for a long time and church services were cond ucted by the deacons, including Samuel Chapin.]
He served in the government more than 20 years.
For forty years, the inhabitants of Springfield had li ved side by side with in Indians in Perfect peace and tranq uility. Therefore on the outbreak of King
Phillip's War, Springfield was not in the least alarme d. As the conflict spread westward, Springfield still fel t confident that the Indians who surrounded it
would not join Phillip in the war. On October 5th, 167 5 [the Indians attacked.] Mrs. Matthews was captured and ki lled, and the greater part of the
town was set on fire. About 30 houses were burnt, whic h was almost half the town. The inhabitants set to work t o rebuild the town. Samuel Chapin,
however, did not live to see the town rebuilt for acco rding to the diary of his son, Japhet, "My father was take n out of this troublesome world the 22nd
day November about eleven of the clock, 1675."
