Click on page buttons 1 to 12 below to see the descendants of John and Elizabeth
Chapple of Dalwood, Devon. Dalwood was a chapelry of Stockland, in the liberty of
Fordington in the county of Dorset until 1842. In that year, together with Stockland,
it was transferred to Devon in exchange for Thorncombe. Anciently, it was located
within the old Dorset Hundred of Whitway.
Variations in the spelling of the surname abound in the records - one of them as
late as the 1901 England & Wales census. For consistency, the most common useage
- Chapple - has been quoted throughout. Use the numbered links on each page (e.g.
 and/or the [Parents] link) to navigate backwards or forwards through the Chapple
generations. There’s the search engine to help you as well.
