Gale Ion Harris' conclusion that William Chappell, another early immigrant to New London, was not connected to George Chappell, deserves further examination. An inventory of New London land purchased by William Chappell & his partner William Peeke shows that they bought a 6-acre houselot bounded by land owned by George Chappell.
No direct evidence is found to substantiate the tradition that George born 28 April 1618, son of Alexander & Johann (Ellett) Chappell of Barnstable, Devonshire, England. Married Margaret ____ by 1653.
