CHAPPELL Family History

This interesting surname is a variant of Chappel, which is of early medieval English origin, and has two possible sources. The first source is from a topographical name for someone who lived close to a chapel, derived from the Middle English (1200-1500), Old French "chapel(l)e", chapel, from the Latin "capella", a hood, cloak, but later transferred to the sense of a chapel or sanctuary. The second source is from an occupational name for someone employed in a chapel, derived from the same elements as the first source.

My grandmother's maiden name was Chappell. Looking for her roots in Ireland.
