Jerry Eakle found an 1881 Canadian Census record in which they are recorded as German. The recording of his age is in error also - born in 1831, he was 50 at the time of this census. Jerry attributes the error in their nationality to their location: Hessian Line, Annapolis, Nova Scotia.

Note    N43-682         Back to Index        Back to Lyman Wallace Chute and Adelia or Adela Parker Chute.

Notes on Lyman Wallace Chute and Adelia or Adela Parker Chute:

Lyman Wallace Chute and his brother Robert John Chute are the patriarchs of the South American Branch of the Chute family. At the time that William Edward Chute wrote the Chute Genealogies, the brothers had been living in Argentina for 26 years; based on this statement, they would have emigrated to South America in approximately 1868.



"Born in Clements, Nov. 8, 1845; married Adela, daughter of Admiral Parker of Uruguay, S.A., Sept. 1872, and is an extensive land owner in that part of the world. He has been there now twenty-six years and is reckoned among the wealthy. Lives in Buenos Ayres"

Source: Chute, William Edward. A Genealogy and History of the Chute Family in America: With Some Account of the Family in Great Britain and Ireland, with an Account of Forty Allied Families Gathered from the Most Authentic Sources. Salem, Massachusetts, 1894. Pages 128-129.



Based on the location of his marriage to Adelia or Adela Parker, they first lived in Montevideo, Uruguay and only later moved to Buenos Aires.

Two additional records exist documenting the family: an obituary of Adelia or Adela Parker's sister, Sophia, summarized from a collection of obituaries published in "The Standard", one of the largest English newspaper in Buenos Aires, records her dying at the home of her sister, Mrs. Wallace Chute in late December 1887 or early January 1898.

"Parker, Sophia 47 wife of Dr Charles Small; died at the residence of her sister Mrs Wallace Chute, calle Paraná 673; she was the youngest daughter of William Parker and grand-daughter of Admiral William Parker of the Brazilian Navy; she had a daughter Elvira; her sister married Dr Kimball; obituary The Standard 2 Jan 1888."
"Saudades", edited by Frank Mulhall, published in 1923. A selection of the obituaries written by Edward Thomas Mulhall for "The Standard" of Buenos Aires between 1882 and 1899.

Two notes on the obituary: although Lyman was known for his extensive landholdings and agricultural-based wealth, the residence, at least at this time, was in Buenos Aires. A map giving the names of all the principal landowners against their holdings from 1895-1898 lists "L.W. Chute" as one of the largest landowners. Finally, Adela has long been believed to be the daughter of Admiral Parker; this obituary would make her his grand-daughter.

It is also not clear from this summary who in fact married "Dr. Kimball". It seems that Adelia/Adela and Sophia may have had a third sister.

"On many visits to a friend's estancia house in recent years, I admired a map she had hanging on the wall of the farm office. Recently I had the opportunity to copy down the details that interested me. The title of the map was:

"Plano de la Region Limitrofe de las Provincias de Santa Fe, Córdoba y Buenos Aires Dated: Rosario 1895/8 Construido por agrimensor Rodolfo A Warner."

In other words this was a map of the central area of the Argentine pampas, giving the names of all the principal landowners against their holdings, including many English surnames. I abstracted them by districts named after the nearby town, as follows:

(Provincia de Buenos Aires)

General Villegas

James Younger (today Drabble bros)

N. Clark
L. W. Chute

"I am researching a home in Bear River that I believe was owned by William Crouse and Harriett (Harris) Crouse his wife. They were married about 1835 and I presume he was the William Crouse that was born to John Crouse and Sarah (Beeler) Crouse in 1812. The house is now owned by Donald Rice and it has always believe d to have been a Miller house but I see no sign of that yet. I have an 1874 deed that is from the heirs of William Crouse to William Sutcliff Crouse. William Sutcliffe Crouse owned the home until 1927 before selling it to the Soldiers Settlement Board. The heirs of the former William Crouse were as follows: Harriett Crouse (widow); Harriet Morgan Crouse; George and Louise Chute; H.W. and Maria Nicholl; William and Annie Dunn. I would like info on the 2 Crouse gentlemen. I may be off track with this home but it seems to be right."
