I am looking for information with regard to Charles Chapple 1808 - 1870 Bristol. Married Elizabeth Bishop in 1853. No children. I am wondering if he left anything to his nephew Joseph Manning. Any help would be gratefully received. Cheers Jayne

Thanks very much.

£450 in 1870 would have been an awful lot of money, he had no children, I do not know when Elizabeth died but I cannot find her after the 1871 but am interested to find out who she left her money to. Any ideas. Cheers
