Chapplecroft or, as it is locally called, Chipplecrat, a farmhouse occupies the site of a chapel licensed for divine service by Bishop Grandisson in 1352. The days specified are June 24th and August 29th, being the nativity and beheading of St. John the Baptist. In the register the name is sometimes spelt correctly Chapel Croft. It is within the manor of East Membury.

Wilkin, W. H., 1927, Chapplecroft Farm (Site Visit). SDV351994.

A visit was undertaken by Wilkin in 1927. Brinscombe, Chapelcroft, and East Membury are adjoining farms and were probably one property called Brinscombe, and suggest that was once the name of the manor house of East Membury which probably stood on the site of the Chapelcroft.

Brinscombe Farm in the manor of East Membury. A chapel was licensed by Bishop Lacy on 22nd September 1425. Presumably the site of the Chapel was at Chapelcroft (noted by Reichel).

Brinscombe, Chapelcroft and East Membury are now adjoining farms but were probably originally one property, called Brinscombe and the original house stood on the site of Chapelcroft.
