      Most of the data used in this account of the Chapline family has been obtained from a sketch written by Maria J. Leggett Dare.

      "The coat of arms * * * [of the Chapline family] taken from silver which has descended in the Chapline family, was granted to their English ancestors in the year 1593. This name is one of the oldest in England, and various branches of the family were seated in Lincoln, Northampton, Hants and Essex. The ancient Manor of Finchingfield, in Essex, was purchased by John Chaplyn in the year 1576, from whom descended Sir Francis Chaplin, Alderman and Lord Mayor of London in 1677. An interesting account of the origin of the name of Chapline connects it with the famous cloak of St. Martin. It will be remembered that while a youth of fifteen St. Martin entered the army, and while stationed at Amiens divided his cloak with a freezing beggar at the gate of that city. The night following, we are told, he had a vision of Christ making known to His angels this act of charity to Himself. The half of the cloak which St. Martin retained to cover himself became the standard of the nation for six hundred years. The little oratory in which this famous blue mantle, or chape, was preserved was from it called a chapelle, and the person who was in attendance, the chaplain. This, we are told on good authority, was the beginning of the name so familiar to us now."

      "The Chaplines intermarried with many representative families of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, including the Shriver, Dorsey, Williams, Caton, Sprigg, Eoff, Ewing, Forman, Fox, Fry, Good, Greathouse, Hamilton, Hammond, Hunter, Knox, Latimer, Lee, Lord, Lowe, Marshall, Fitts, Penn, Phillips, Potts, Schley, Stanton, Swearingen, Talbot, Turner, Warfield, Wyitt, Zane, Ridgely, Ayers, Brisco, Buldett, Calvert, Caldwell, Carroll Carter Churchill, Cresap, Dare, Davenport, Dewey, Thompson, Wyatt and perhaps Calvert families. In the South and West they married with the Lees, Churchills, Goods, Abells and Mooreheads. Among the many descendants of this distinguished family are: Charles T. Chapline, Joseph A. Chapline and Grace D. Chapline, Washington, D. C.; Albert Chapline, Norfolk, Va.; Harriet E. Chapline, Thomas A. Chapline and Rosa Schley Orsburn, Frederick, Md.; Mrs. Virginia Williams, Otho Williams, Nannie Claggett Williams and Richard Keene Bragonier, Shepherdstown, Va.; Thomas A.
