Per Stokes" La Chair had been a tapster since 1655....Business did not prosper, and La Chair tried several other ways of making a living. In 1660, he farmed the excise on Long Island...and on January 13, 1661, he petitioned to be admitted as a notary.
Request additional research materials from Courtney on this ancestor. There is an article that claims that Solomon Le Chair may be the father of the NY Bar Association. TD 2009-07-19
