Chancy Family



DNA has proven we "Chancy/Chancey AND southern born Chaunceys" are not even close to kinship/bloodline with the New England Chaunceys, whose immigrant ancestor was Charles Chauncey and Catherine Eyre in 1630.

Nathan was born in Bladen County, NC July 01, 1792 to John Chancy and 'Sarah' (MNU). Nathan had a first wife who died, possibly in Houston County, GA. She would have been from NC.

DNA has determined the SE Georgia Chanceys match the NC Chancy (today Chauncey) bloodline...we also believe the Chancey's who migrated to SE Alabama VIA Dempsey Chancey (and others) also match the DNA of the rest of us...a DNA test currently being done on a descendant of Dempsey Chancey of Bladen County NC, in today's, Dothan, Alabama, and will finally answer that question.

The information below is a beginning not the end.  If you find discrepancies please notify me so this can be corrected. Please send source documentation for any changes.  

Information on the Suwannee branch of the family is almost non-existant due to water destroying the information over the years. Looking for information on George R. W.  
and Mary (Hurst) Chancy.

More family information is on Suwannee County.
