     CHARLES CHAUNCEY, the second President of Harvard College, was the emigrant ancestor of all who bear the name of Chauncey in the United States.  He was the fifth son of George Chauncy of Newplace and Yardley-Bury in Hertfordshire, who died 1627, and the third, of his second wife.  His mother, Agnes, was the daughter of Edward Welsh of Great Wymondley, and the widow of Edward Humberstone.  He was baptized and registered on the fifth of November, 1592, in Yardley-Bury Church, Herts.

     He left England in the latter part of 1637, arriving at Plymouth a few days before the great earthquake which happened on June 1, 1638.  In 1641 he was elected pastor of the church at Scituate.  His time there was not pleasant and when on November 2, 1654, he was offered the post of president of Harvard College, he accepted immediately and was inaugurated on November 29, 1654.  

     His wife was Catherine Eyre, whom he married on March 17, 1630.  She preceded him in death.  He died in his 80th year on February 19, 1671.  

     In this book his ancestry his presented in detail back to Chauncey de Chauncey who came to England in 1066 with William the Conqueror. His children and their descendants are also discussed in detail.
