I ran across this interesting information and thought someone would like to have it on this forum. As far as I know, I haven't any Chaplain/Chapleyns in my lines, but I am always excited to pass on any info that might be of interest to fellow "bitten" genealogists! Bless that bug! Here is the info:
Catalogue Number 23399
Norfolk - Reign of Edward VI: document on a small sheet of vellum (100x250 mm.) dated 1550, court held on Friday in the Vigil of Saint Luke the Evangelist, being surrender at the Courts Baron of the Manor of Ersham Dubbells (modern day Earsham). The homage report that Joan, widow, relict and executrix of John Chapleyn has alienated land to Thomas Chapleyn, son of John - g(f?)our pieces of meadow in northmedowe in Ersham and two pieces in Prests medowe - before this court took place. Thomas has now died and his elder son John aged 18 is his heir. Now, Alice, widow of Thomas and mother of John is admitted to the said six pieces of land to hold to herself and her heirs. Modern day Earsham lays just West of Bungay (England). A very exciting vellum.
here is the website on which I found this info:
If this is of help to anyone I would love to hear about it. I love success stories!
