Richard was the son of John and Ann (Gates) Chue of Flushing, L.I. N. Y. John was born in Whalley Parish, Lancashire, England and married Ann in 1650 in Hingham, Plymouth, MA. Richard Chew came on December 1, 1699 from Flushing upon Long Island aleas Nassaw in the Province of New York and purchased for 28 puonds and 10 shillings 300 acres of land from Daniel Cooper on the Southerly branch of the Gloucester River. On May 1, 1700 he purchased from James Whithall 200 acres, and a house in Upton and another 100 acres near the Great Mantus Creek. Within 3 years he had purchased over 700 acres in Gloucester. He was married to Francis Woodward who it is thought died in Long Island before 1699. Richard died in 1722/23. In 1740 Richard's son, Thomas Chew b. 1688 had the farm resurveyed when one acre was excepted for the graveyard which became Wallen's-Chew Cemetery. A map of this graveyard can be seen in book AA of Deeds page 21, Clerks Office, Woodbury, NJ. On the plan of the graveyard, surveyed by Christopher Sickler, he wrote "that when Thomas Chew sold the farm in 1752 to Joseph Smith, the graveyard was excepted as Thomas had said "he didn't want to sell his father." Most of this info is from a book written by Dorothy M. Powell.
