Ian CHAPPELL ( - )
Monica ( - )
Adopted. From Sheila Villazon, My mother referred to an Auntie Vinnie,
and I think she was Lavinia(very pretty and vivacious by all accounts) and now you have suggested the name Chappell I am pretty sure that you are
right and she married Frederick Chappell. I think she died quite young
after she and Fred had adopted Ian and that Auntie Phyll moved in and assumed the role of "mother " to Ralph, but unofficially, and this could explain his coldness and lack of care for her when Fred died. I am almost
certain that Ian's name is Chappell, which would support this. I have no
idea what became of Ian and his wife Monica. They came to stay with us
when I was a child, and none of us liked them. He was very "superior".
And I remember my mother saying that he probably thought he was of noble birth and that he didn't belong to an ordinary family..
