  • Notes 
    • According to undated notes of Vern Hall: "George Chapman, 8th great grandfather of John C Hall, in his will dated at Folkeston 20 March 1624, gave to his "'sonnes Thomas and Steven, two and a half acres of land within the liberty of Folkestone at a place called Durlex.' This was set on a little ridge below the cliff across, on the north side of the town from Kow Street where he lived. A deed found in Folkestone City Library dated 1707 recorded the sale of a lot in Durlex by James Chapman for 35 pounds. The sign to the right of the arch gate beneath the building left, is labeled 'Durlex Street.' This is located at the south-west corner of a block with homes each facing the streets that enclose it built around 1700-1725. This seems to mark the end of Chapman farming at Durlex. The gate noted is the only opening to the court that serves as a closed backyard for each of the homes in the square. The fact that the gate can be locked was likely a wise provision in Folkestone so near the sea at the crest of a time when law-breakers mingled freely with the adventuresome but honest traders. . . . It was a beehive 250 years ago, not so busy today."
    • (Research):Name: George CHAPMAN -965 Birth: 1568

      CHAPMAN Origin of name: from Saxon ceapan or cypan, to buy or sell; Saxon ceap - a bargain, a price, a trader, a shopman. Flemish- a merchant.

      According to undated notes by Vern Hall: George Chapman's grandfather "Thomas Chapman [-968 in this ancestry file-ed.] made his will 10 Mar 1569. He was a farmer who named everything from kettles and pots to parcels of land all over the town [of Folkestone]. He did this for our cause, 'I will that Thomas [-969 in this ancestry file-ed.] and John [-967] my sonnes shall have my pte of the barne and place with all appurtenances w'ch I purchased from William Godden and Adryan Godden, sett, lying and being in Cowstreet in Folkestone.' This must have been the beginning of our Chapman family in Folkestone." Now referred to as Kow Street.

      This is the possible marriage: Thomas CHAPMAN Jane NIGHTINGALE Marriage: 30 Jan 1561 Westerham, Kent, England

      All his children baptised at Folkestone 10 March 1569.
