Chance Genealogy & History

Chance is an English surname from the Old French cheance and Middle English cheance or cheaunce, meaning luck or accident. It was a nickname for someone with particularly good luck, as evinced by general fortune or surviving a calamity by chance; in the same sense, it may have been applied to someone who gambled a lot. Chance family history begins in 1209, when Robert Chance was noted in the Pipe Rolls of Essex. Chance genealogy includes American Olympic sailing medalist Britton Chance and widely-traveled pitcher Dean Chance.
