formerly of Devon, England
Regrettably, further analysis of the John Chapple on generation 7 indicates that he almost certainly was not the son of
Thomas Chapple and Mary as previously indicated, as it is almost certain that the said Thomas Chapple (Chappell)
died in 1643 with admon granted to Mary Chappell, his wife.
It is most likely that this John on generation 7 married in 1679 at Templeton, Devon to Margery LAND (bap 1658)
of Tiverton, Devon and had children with her, of whom Clement (generation 8) was the eldest.
The identification of this John is the current problem. .
(7) John Chapple & Margery Land
(8) Clement Chapple & Mary Towey
(9) James Chapple & Anne Grant
(10) Richard Chapple & Elizabeth Cuthbertson
(11) Richard Allen Chapple & Jane Grigg
(12) William Chapple & Mary Ann Tarrant
(13) Frederick Joseph Chapple & Fanny Beatrice Little
(14) Mary Beatrice Chapple & Albert Ernest Shade.
There are many more
Chapples in Devon than are accounted for in this tree, and some
of the connections of the tree may be inaccurate.
For example, there is a very intriguing record of Freedon of the City Admission Papers 1739 for one John Chapple,
Musician, son of Clement Chapple of Exeter, Forgemaker (in Ancestry) who I have not identified;
the Exeter records may hold more details of early Chapples prior to the ones on this tree migrating to Exeter.
