3312. William CHAPLINE I was born in 1625. He died in 1669 in Calvert County, Maryland.  William Chapline was born at the "Chapline's Choice" Plantation.  He returned to England for school and in 1648, after coming back to Virginia, married Elizabeth Bancroft, a widow, with one daughter, Alice by her first marriage.  She bore him his first child, Elizabeth in 1649.  They immigrated to Maryland in the summer of 1649, with his wife's seven servants, where upon he received several tracts of land on the Patuxent River near Cedar Branch.

His wife Elizabeth died shortly after the move.  In 1650 William married Mary Hooper of Dorchester County.  He received a grant of 300 acres on Hooper's Island and used this to grow tobacco.  He had a small home for his family plus houses for his servants and workers.  William owned a large sloop which he used to travel back and forth across the bay, to manage his two plantations, haul his tobacco and visit his wife's family on Hooper's Island.  This same Hooper family went on to become leading Maryland statesmen from Dorchester County and later served in the Maryland General Assembly with Joseph Chapline in the early 1750's.

He was married to Mary HOOPER in 1650.
