Further to Terry's message, it appears there is an H. W. Chappell still living in the Exminster Asylum,on 1911 census aged 59. So born around 1851 and a Painter, which fits. Says "Lunatic". Eliza Chapple still alive in 1911. However, there is a will for a Henry William Chapple who died 03.04.1927. in Exminster Asylum and he left his money to wife Eliza. So was she still alive at that time? I have not found a positive death for her. As to Eliza Ellen Rolles, she appears to have been born Dec Q 1847 in Totnes(maiden name recorded as Rowls)so has lied about her age on census. Children born to Henry William and Eliza are Mary Ann (Annie) Chapple baptised 23.08.1874. in Torquay. Ellen Eliza was baptised 12.06.1877 Wolborough St Pauls and says she was from Union (Workhouse), no father mentioned just mother Eliza.
