A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: William Chase, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1630; Aquilla Chase and his brother Thomas Chase, both born in Chesham in Buckinghamshire, England, between 1580 and 1585, they came to Hampton, then Newburyport, MA in the 1640s, and had many prominent descendants.
