made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Chapble or a variant listed above: Jonathan Chaple who settled in Boston 1716; Robert Chapel settled in San Francisco in 1850; Alice settled in New England
in 1766; Phyllis Chapple settled in Virginia in 1663.
