Thomas Chase

Thomas Chase, born in 1737, was a Freeman, a part of the St. Andrew’s Lodge of Boston, and a participant in the Boston Tea Party; his profession was as a distiller. It is speculated that Thomas Chase was among the Sons of Liberty [including Thomas Crafts, Stephen Cleverly, Jon Avery] who held the first meeting to plan the Tea Party in the Chase and Speakman’s Distillery. He died in 1787 and is buried at the Granary Burying Ground.
