John's parents were Thomas Chapman and Alice Kipping as Peter is on my unconnected list

Looked at it but the link doesn't go to the FAG memorial so couldn't check the sourcing.

I have this https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/102785903/peter-chapman

shows his father Thomas passed away in 1524 there is also another brother Richard Chapman born in 1504

I am still working to get the pre-1500 which would make things easier for me :)
FindAGrave is now a source?
I would not myself regard information someone has put on FindAGrave about family relationships as a satisfactory source unless it is shown on gravestones or monumental inscriptions, or some other suitable source is given. Otherwise, the quality of the information may be much the same as in family trees uploaded to Ancestry etc - and we all know how unreliable they can be.
Kurt, not to be flip but technically where ever the information comes from is a source and should be cited. Whether or not the source is a good one is a different matter. But Find A Grave sometimes cites sources and often has photos of gravestones, which can be helpful, so I wouldn't turn my nose up at it.

A source is a source, but where is the evidence? In this case there is none on the FAG memorial so I won't make the connection. That said this guy is so interesting he deserves to be connected and properly written up. Not sure where to look at the moment.

I have not been able to find enough information on Peter or his brother William but I do keep going back to them especially William as he was in my book I have which has been noted in his profile :)
I have sent you a message as I had a look at the history of Bath Abbey http://www.bathabbey.org/history
