Charles Henry Pope's "The Cheney Genealogy," published in 1897, has been re-issued by New London Librarium in two volumes. Part I follows the descendants of William Cheney, who arrived in MBC in 1635. Part II follows John Cheney, who arrived at about the same time. The publisher is calling for anyone related to anyone in the book (over 900 Cheneys) to contribute genealogical information for Cheney descendants born after 1895. The information will be included in a subsequent edition. More information, including excerpts, at

Among the more than 1,200 other last names mentioned in these genealogies are Aiken, Aldrich, Alden, Albee, Ames, Andrews, Andros, Anthony, Angiers, Applebee, Appleton, Archibald, Arms, Armstrong, Arnett, Arnold, Atkins, Atkinson, Atwood, Arnold, Austin, Avery, Babson, Bailey, Baker, Baldwin Bancroft, Bankers, Barker, Barnard, Barnes, Barr, Barry, Bartlett, Bates, Baxter, Bell, Bennett,Bentley, Bickford, Birdsall, Bisho, Bissell, Black,Blackwood, Blair, Blake, Blish, Bly, Bowles, Bradbury, Bradford, Brewer, Brigham, Brown, Browning, Carr, Carter, Castle, Chandler, Chase, Chenery, Clark, Clifford, Coates, Cobb, Dudley, Dyer, Ellsworth, Edwards, Fletcher, Fowler, Gifford, Gilman, Gleason, Goodman, Gould, Griswold, Hadley, harding, Hawkins, Herron, Higgins, Hill, Hilton, hobbs, Holder, Hopkins, Huntington, Hutchinson, Jameson, Jewett, Johnson, Joyner, Kent, King, Kinsman, Knapp, Knowles, Ladd, Lane, Lathrop, Leffingwell, Libby, Lincoln, Morris, Putnam, Sprague, Winslow, Winthrop, Young—and way too many more to list. 

This book might a good addition to your library, and I hope you can share this information with any Cheneys you know. We are very interested in receiving genealogical information connecting present-day Cheney to those found in these books. If you have any questions, by all means contact me by email,
