Birth:  ABT 1616  Barnstable, Devonshire, England

Immigration:  16 MAR 1645/35
Note:  George Chappell emigrated to Windsor, CT, in 1635, in the ship “Christian”, from London, as one of a party of workmen sent out by Sir R. Saltonstall to prepare him a place at Windsor, where Saltonstall intended ultimately to settle. The list of passengers of the ship “Christian” indicates that George Chappell traveled under the control of John Cribb, age 30; although Cribb does not appear to be a relative. The aforementioned party of workmen was in the charge of Mr. Francis Stiles, a citizen and master builder of London, whom Saltonstall had chosen as the agent and manager of his proposed plantation, and George Chappel and other passengers were indentured as apprentices to Stiles, as appears from an order of Court at Hartford, CT, 26 March 1637, “ord. that Mr. Francis Stiles shall teach George Chapple, Thomas Cooper, and Thomas Barber, his servants, in the trade of a carpenter, according to his promise, for their service of their term, behind 4 days in a week only to saw and slitte their own work.” Stiles arrived on the same ship, and probably brought the three with him and paid their way.
