What documentation would support that Richard Chamberlin (1630?-1673) is the son of John Chamberlin (abt 1595-?)?

In "The Wright-Chamberlin Genealogy," by Eunice Miena Barber, Richard Chamberlin (actually, Chamberline - the extra "e" was dropped in the next generation, as explained in the referenced book) is documented as having had a son who was born and died in 1642, which would make him too old to have been born in 1630.  [Note that "The Wright-Chamberlin Genealogy" is freely available on Google Books.]

P.S.  I am a carrier of Richard's y-DNA, although I have not had the y-DNA test performed.

Just looking at this unsourced lineage suggests that it may have little validity and my guess is that no documentation will support it!

The John Chamberlain you mention b 1595 is supposed to be the son of Jean de Tankerville b 1575.(same profile manager for Jean and  John, the same  PM also added John as father for Richard) There is a helpful genealogy in the biography  which states that Jean de Tankerville was chamberlain to Henry 1 and it was his son John who first adopted the surname of Chamberlain. Small problem is that Henry 1 died in 1135!

You can use a secondary source to support your information, sometimes it is the only source possible. The one you have mentioned seems to provide its sources which certainly helps its credibility

I found the book on Hathi (I find this more user friendly than Google books.) It also supplies a helpful citation ie

Barber, E. Miena. (1914). The Wright-Chamberlin genealogy: from immigrant ancestors to present generations. Binghamton, N.Y.: Vail-Ballou Co. [+ page number(s) used and a link to the actual page
