This is an on-going update of the "Edward Chapman of Ipswich" genealogy written by Jacob Chapman of Exeter, NH in 1893. I have been working on this since 1994 and have gathered information from birth, death, and marriage records. I have also collected photos, obituaries, articles and immigration information from the Bethel Historical Society and the Portland Historical Society. My thought in placing this on the internet is to attract other Edward Chapman descendants in hopes of adding their updated line to this one so that all lines are represented!
If you are of this lineage and have material you'd like to add to this, please contact me at the email address listed above.
