Charles Chauncy1

M, b. 1589, d. 19 February 1671
     Charles Chauncy was born in 1589.2 He was the son of George Chauncy and Anne Welch.3,4 Charles Chauncy was christened on 5 November 1592 at Yardley-Bury, Hertfordshire.5 The emigrant ancestor of all who bear the name of Chauncy and Chauncey in the United States. He received his preparatory training at Westminster school, and entered Trinity college, Cambridge, where he was made a Bachelor of Arts in 1613, and M.A. in 1617. He was also made a fellow of the college, and in 1624 was given the degree of B.D. He was chosen professor of Hebrew, but resigned in favor of a relative of the vice-chancellor, and was appointed to the Greek professorship. He remained at Trinity for some time, and then preached for a season at Marston Laurence, Northamptonshire. In 1627 he became vicar of Ware, Hertfordshire, where his peculiar puritanical opinions involved him in difficulties with his ecclesiastical superiors. In January, 1629, he was called before the High Commission Court on the charge of having used in his sermons certain expressions condemnatory of the Church, and is said to have made his submission to Bishop Laud. In 1635 he was again prosecuted for opposing the railing in of the communion table at Ware; was suspended, cast into prison, condemned to costs, and obliged to make a humiliating recantation.

He left England late in 1637, and arrived at Plymouth, Mass., in May, 1638. For about three years he preached with Mr. Royner at Plymouth, and in 1641 was elected pastor of the church at Scituate, where he preached for twelve years. His pastorate in Scituate was for many reasons unpleasant to him, partly because of a difference of opinion among his parishioners, and partly because of a lack of financial support. His persecutor, Bishop Laud, had been executed, and a change had taken place in the attitude of the church; Mr. Chauncy was invited to return to Ware, and had reached Boston, whence he was to sail, when he was invited to become president of Harvard College. He was inaugurated Nov. 29, 1654, and entered upon the duties of the office at a salary of £100 per annum. He is the author of: The Plain Doctrine of the Justification of a Sinner in the Sight of God, Six and Twenty Sermons (1659), and Antisynodalia Scripta Americana.4 He married Catharine Eyre, daughter of Robert Eyre and Agnes Still, on 17 March 1630 in Ware, Hertfordshire, they had six sons, all bred to the ministry, and two daughters.4,6 Charles Chauncy emigrated in December 1637 to Plymouth, New England.6 On 29 November 1654 he was a President of Harvard College.3 He died on 19 February 1671 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.2

Rev. Dr. Charles Chauncy D.D.1

M, b. 1 January 1704/5, d. 10 February 1787
     Rev. Dr. Charles Chauncy D.D. was born on 1 January 1704/5 in Boston.2 He was the son of Charles Chauncy and Sarah Walley.2 Rev. Dr. Charles Chauncy D.D. graduated in 1721 from Harvard.2 He married firstly Elizabeth Hirst, daughter of Grove Hirst and Elizabeth Sewall, on 14 February 1727/28.3,4 Rev. Dr. Charles Chauncy D.D. married secondly Elizabeth Phillips (widow Townsend), daughter of John Phillips and Mary (Unknown), on 8 January 1738/39.3 Rev. Dr. Charles Chauncy D.D. died on 10 February 1787 at the age of 82.2

Chauncy Charles, pastor of the first church in Boston, was a great grandson of president Chauncy, and had much of the genius and spirit of his ancestor. He was born, Jan. 1st, 1705. His father, the youngest son of the rev. Isaac Chauncy, Berry street, settled in Boston, as a merchant. Charles was only seven years old when his father died; but had friends, who were disposed to give him every advantage of education. At twelve years old he was sent to Harvard College; was graduated, 1721, and considered as one of the best scholars who had ever received the honours of that seminary. It afforded great pleasure to wise and good men of those times to see a descendant of that president, who had done so much honour to New England, come into life with such high recommendations ; and their hopes were highly gratified when he made divinity his study. As soon as Mr. Wadsworth was removed from the first church, to preside at Cambridge, the eyes of that people were fixed upon this young man, and he was associated with Mr. Foxcroft in the work of the ministry. He was ordained, 1727. Mr. Foxcroft and he were colleague pastors for about 40 years. After the death of his colleague, he performed the whole parochial duty nearly ten years. In June, 1778, the rev. Mr. John Clark was settled with him, whom he treated as a son, and who was always sensible of his paternal regards. Dr. Chauncy was one of the greatest divines in New England; no one except president Edwards, and the late Dr. Mayhew, has been so much known among the literati of Europe, or printed more books upon theological subjects. He took great delight in studying the scriptures. Feeling the sacred obligations of morality, he impressed them upon the minds of others in the most rational and evangelical manner. When he preached upon the faith of the gospel, he reasoned of righteousness, temperance and a judgement to come. It was said that he wanted the graces of delivery, and taste in composition. But it was his object to exhibit the most sublime truths in simplicity of speech, and he never, therefore, studied to have his periods polished, or his style adorned with rhetorical figures. His favourite authors were, Tillotson of the episcopal church, and Baxter among the puritans. For he preferred the rich vein of sentiment in the sermons of the English divines, to that tinsel of French declamation so fashionable in our modern way of preaching. Upon some occasions, however, Dr Chauncy could raise his feeble voice, and manifest a vigour and animation, which would arrest the attention of the most careless hearer, and have a deeper effect, than the oratory which is thought by many to be irresistibly persuasive : at all times, he was argumentative and perspicuous, and made an admirable practical use of the sentiments he delivered. But it is as an author we are chiefly to view Dr. Chauncy in this biographical sketch. His clear head, his quick conception, and comprehensive view of every subject enabled him to write with ease and propriety. However quick, and sudden, and unguarded in his expressions when discussing things in conversation, he reasoned coolly in all his controversial writings. His ideas were so well arranged, and he had such a command of them, that he managed every subject with equal candour, liberality, fairness and skill. In the episcopal controversy he obtained great celebrity. He first began this in a sermon upon the validity of presbyterian ordination preached at the Dudleian lecture, at Cambridge, 1762. In 1767 he wrote his remarks upon a sermon of the bishop of Landaff. In 1771 he printed a complete view of episcopacy, "the two first centuries." Beside these, he had a particular controversy upon the subject of the American episcopate ; he wrote "an appeal to the publick answered in behalf of non episcopal churches" when Dr. Chandler of Elizabethtown, offered his appeal to the publick, "in favour of episcopal churches ; to this Dr. Chandler wrote an answer styled, " the appeal defended, " &c. Dr. Chauney made a reply to the appeal defended, and to this Dr. Chandler also replied in another large pamphlet. In the Whitefieldian controversy, Dr. Chauncy discovered more zeal than in his other works. In 1742 and 1743 he published a "sermon on the various gifts of ministers;" one upon "enthusiasm," and another on the "outpourings of the Holy Ghost;" he also printed an "account of the French prophets," and "seasonable thoughts on the state of religion." At the time of the great revival of religion, there were certain things of a dangerous tendency mingled with it, which the Dr. saw fit to correct. It makes an octavo volume in five parts, and by the list of subscribers, we find he was encouraged by many worthy ministers who differed from him in their doctrinal sentiments. His other large works are, "twelve sermons on seasonable and important subjects," chiefly upon justification, in opposition to the opinion of Robert Sandinian, 1765; the "mystery hid from ages, or the salvation of all men;" "dissertations upon the benevolence of the Deity;" these were printed 1784, and the next year he printed a volume "on the fall of man and its consequences ."
In 1742, he received his diploma from the university of Edinburgh, the first from that seminary to an American divine. He was also one of the London board of commissioners for propagating the gospel among the Indians; and a corresponding member of the board in Scotland. His health, cheerfulness, activity and the powers of his mind continued to old age. He died, Feb. 10, 1787. Mr. Clarke preached his funeral sermon.
