Kairo Mitchell watched his former club lose to his future one as Lynn's two match unbeaten run was ended by Chesterfield whose own unbeaten run was extended to five, all of them victories.
Lynn were without Mitchell, whose transfer to the Spireites was in progress, and Elkan Baggott who was on FA Youth Cup duty with parent club Ipswich.
Alex Babos was given a debut while Michael Gash and Cameron King came into the starting line-up at the expense of Joe Gascoigne and Alfie Payne who dropped to the bench where they were joined by Alex Kiwomya.
The promotion chasing visitors dominated the early stages with Lynn looking for the occasional break although they didn't force Spireites keeper Grant Smith into action until the 20th minute when Sonny Carey tried his luck from distance.
Prior to that, for the visitors, George Carline got on the end of a Martin Smith free kick only to see his header go wide and in a rare Lynn break Michael Gyasi was also wide with a shot.
A powerful free kick from Akwasi Asante skimmed the Lynn crossbar and then Lynn's task looked that much harder when they lost centre-half Kyle Callan-McFadden with possible concussion, Gash having to switch to a defensive role as cover.
Soon after substitute Simeon Jackson was fouled by Gavin Gunning on the edge of the box and Carey stepped up to put his free kick around the wall and give Lynn an unexpected lead.
The visitors responded with a free kick from Liam Mandeville but this could only hit the side netting as Lynn went into half time ahead.
Gyasi had an early chance to put Lynn two up after the restart but Chesterfield took control and laid siege to the Lynn goal and it was just a matter of time before they found the target, and when they did it was two strikes in as many minutes both coming from substitutes.
George Carline was the creator of the goals with crosses which found Nathan Tyson and Tom Whelan.
Kiwomya had an injury time chance to level matters but his shot was straight at Smith and lacked any power to trouble him.
All credit Lynn who, despite the recent departures and injuries, keep producing respectable performances and results.
