Birth: Jun. 19, 1716
York County
Maine, USA
Death: May 11, 1798
York County
Maine, USA

Baptized on 5 August 1716
in the First Church of Berwick.

Occupation - Elder
Deacon of Baptist Church at Berwick.

Humphrey and Phebe married on 1 April 1742
at Berwick, York, Maine
They were the parents of;
Humphrey, Elizabeth, Paul, Simeon, Silas, Levi, Phebe Hobbs, William, Thomas, Sarah, James Hobbs.

In 1758 the military commissioned Humphrey for the invasion of Canada, a failed expedition to dislodge the French from the Lake Champlain area. He appointed a first lieutenant in the company of Ichabod Goodwin, Colonel Jedediah Preble commanding, and he was named captain in 1760. There is a letter written by him to Major John Hill of Berwick
in which he speaks of the capture of Isle aux Noix, on the Richelieu River between Lake Champlain and Montreal.
In 1757 Humphrey was chosen deacon; then elder in 1761, but never was an ordained clergyman. He frequently conducted religious worship.
He resided at Berwick; lived much of his later life on a place called the "Chick Farm" at
North Berwick,
He gave a christening basin to the church, presumably the Second Church at Blackberry Hill. The basin was enumerated at Berwick in 1790.
He moved to Cornish in his later years, verified by a deposition from him in which he stated
he was of 'Francisborough' (Cornish).
Upon his death he held no real estate, but had seen that all of his family were well provided for.

Son of William CHADBOURNE
{born - 1683 at Berwick, York, Maine
died - 1759 at Berwick, York, Maine}.
and Mary.
