It does not appear from public records that Thomas was the father of the Thomas Chapple who married Thomazine Chamberlain. Catherine Courtenay appears as marrying " _________ Chappell" in the Visitations (Thomas in one version; Robert in another version; and Anthony in Westcote’s 1600’s history of Devon). Thomas is known from Devon Wills to have been one of five brothers; John, Anthony, Thomas, George and William. The Will of John (1561) mentions his brother’s daughter in law, Thomazine Chamberlain. The 1561 Will of Humphrey Chappell, who was apparently a cousin, mentions Thomazine the daughter in law to William Chappell of Exeter. Thus documents would appear to indicate that the father of Thomas Chappell was William Chappel, rather than his brother Thomas.

Thomas is 18 degrees from Amelia Earhart, 21 degrees from Lance Martin, 26 degrees from Oscar Wilde and 17 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
