Richard Burpee Chute one of the oldest residents of Greenport, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs Esephene Warner at Jamesport, on Wednesday June 24th. Captain Chute, who was in his 92nd year, was in his earlier life the designer of many famous vessels. In addition to his fame as a designer, Mr Chute was also a skilled shipsmith a trade which in this age of machinery is fast becoming a lost art.

Captain Chute was born in Bear River, Nova Scotia, Canada. In his youth he learned the trade of shipsmith for which at that time there was a great demand. When but 20 years of age, he was the Superintendent of the Shipsmith Dept at the Gabold & Thompson Company of Boston. From Boston, Capt Chute moved to Providence and from there to New London.

It was at Groton, Conn, that he designed and superintended the building of many of the old-time sailing vessesl for which he became famous. Among the many boats which he designed were the "Mary H Rockaway", "Multannah", the four-masted schooner "Richard B Chute" and the "Harriet C Whitehead" which was perhaps the most famous of all the vessels which Captain Chute designed. The "Whitehead" about 40 years ago was rated as the fastest sailing schooner in the coastwise trade.

About 1917 Captain Chute moved to Greenport and engaged in his trade of shipsmith in connection with the Wood & Chute Shipyard of hwich his son, the late Raymond Chute was a partner. About five years ago he retired from active business and made is home in Greenport and vicinity in the summer and at New London and Hartford during the winter months.

Captain Chute was a life member of the famous Jiboom Club of New London, Conn, which is composed of retired mariners. While in the shipsmith business in Greenport one of his most famous pieces of work was the welding of a huge new link in the mammouth chain the the large marine railways of the Greenport Basin and Construction Company.

Funeral services were held Friday at the Greenport Methodist Church, Rev J Roscoe Walker, pastor of the church, officiating. Interment was in Sterling cemetery.

Surviving Captain Chute are four daughters, Mrs Bessie C Beebe of New London, Conn; Mrs Willis L Taber, of Groton, Conn; Miss May Chute of New London, Conn; Mrs Esephene Warner of Jamesport; 3 sons Robert Earl Chute, of Hartford, Conn; Richard Burpee Chute, of Huntington, LI; James B Chute of Greenport; 12 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

"Did Richard Burpee, Sr. have any brothers or sisters? My grandfather was James Bates Chute and he died in 1956. I was hoping to trace back a few generations. I have old post cards that my grandfather sent home when he was in the Navy and that was around 1911, 1912. He must have been born around 1890?"

Page 3, Family #11

It is unsure if he lived with this family as a boarder, or in some sort of assistance capacity, as this appears to be a widowed father with 4 sons. The status of his own children are also uncertain during this same period of time.

According to WEC, he was killed by a falling tree about 2 years after this census was taken.
