JOSEPH SHRAPNELL (1844 – 1917)

Joseph was the son of JOSEPH SHRAPNELL (1808 – 1859), son of Joseph, probably linking back to the main tree of clothiers, victuallers and ironmongers from Trowbridge, Wiltshire. After an undistinguished military career he married Ellen Bishop in 1862 living eventually at The Rank in North Bradley where he raised eleven children.

 

Other siblings of JOSEPH were:

JACOB SHRAPNELL (1846 – 1922)

SAMUEL SHRAPNELL (1849 – 1932)

CHARLES SHRAPNELL (1859 – 1931)

MARY ANN SHRAPNELL (b 1865)

 

This family now represents by far the largest extant group bearing the name.
