Warwick/Worrick/Warrick Surname

The Warwick surname is English in origin. The earliest known members of our family were living in Massachusetts in the late 1600s. Although the proper spelling of the name is "Warwick", the majority of our family spelled their name Warrick or Worrick in contemporary records. Most branches of the family had eventually standardized the spelling as Worrick.


1st Generation:

Chasling Worrick was born circa 1690, possibly in Massachusetts. He died on April 27, 1749 in Hingham (now Cohasset), Plymouth Co., Massachusetts 1.

Chasling's parents or origins are not known. He may have been related to John, Elizabeth, and Joseph Worrick who appear in Boston during the same time that he did, the early 1700s. Sometime in his youth Chasling probably settled in Boston, Massachusetts, with some family. He must have traveled from Boston to Hingham though because in March 1717/8 he filed intentions to marry Hester Bates in Hingham, Mass. They were married on April 4, 1718 in Boston and afterwards settled in Hingham. By his marriage to Hester, Chasling had 8 children: Susanna, Joseph, Elizabeth, Jael, George, Ann, Sarah, and Jonathan. His wife Hester died in 1739 at the age of 41.

Chasling remarried on November 22, 1739 in Hingham, Mass., to Susanna Sutton, a widow. They had 4 children together: Hezekiah, Lydia, Esther, and Jesse (see next generation). Chasling was by occupation a shoemaker and lived at Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The part of town he lived in afterwards became the town of Cohasset in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. It is said that Chasling lived "on the Common" in what is became Cohasset. Chasling was drowned on April 27, 1749, probably near his home in Hingham, Massachusetts. His estate was appraised on May 10, 1750. The house he lived in was apparently torn down in the year 1794 and a house was rebuilt at the same location which was still standing in 1909.

Chasling married first Hester Bates in March 1717/8 in Hingham, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts 1 on April 4, 1718 in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts.
