There were several separate Chapple families living in Devon during the 16th to 19th centuries. Our interest is in the east Devon family originally from the Dalwood and Colyton areas - the descendants of John and Elizabeth Chapple who over the centuries found their way to London, Leeds, Glamorgan, Canada and New Zealand. Variations in the spelling of the surname abound in the records - one of them as late as the 1901 England and Wales census. For consistency, the most common useage - Chapple - has been quoted throughout the 19 pages of information about them on the site.
