14ChanterJohn Frederick Chanter1886301916id: 35a11375081collected by our researcher Mavis Cherrill. John Frederick Chanter was born on 17th July 1853 to John Roberts (who was a solicitor) and Julia Bean Chanter (nee Latham) of The Square Barnstaple and baptised on 13th September, 1853 in Holy Trinity Church in Barnstaple. John Frederick Chanter married Rose Edith Thompson born 1864, the younger daughter of Reverend William Thompson, at Exmoor Parish Church on 2nd July 1889. Their only child Violet Mary Stewart Chanter was born in1891. John Frederick Chanter died on 16th July 1939, on the eve of his 86th birthday. After a service in Exeter Cathedral he was buried in the churchyard of St James Church, Swimbridge. He graduated with a MA from Jesus College, Cambridge in 1879 and was appointed Curate at Bridport and then Tisbury before becoming Rector of Parracombe in 1886. He retired in 1916 and went to live in Exmouth continuing as one of the licenced preachers of the diocese. In 1917 he was appointed Honourer Archivist of Exeter Cathedral, becoming Prebendary in 1921 and Treasurer in 1929. He had an interest in many things and wrote a number of books and presented various papers. John Frederick Chanter was elected a member of The Devonshire Association for the advancement of science literature and art in 1901 though he had helped his Father with many of the papers he had presented. In 1902 he asked R Handsford Worth (who was reporting for the Barrows Committee) if Chapman Barrows had been opened recently and amongst laughter he replied that they were opened in 1302 but did not know of any recent openings! John Frederick Chanter joined the Barrows Committee in 1904 and he invited R Handsford Worth to visit Parracombe on the borders of Exmoor. The Report states that seven members of the group known as Chapman Barrows run in a straight line, the direction being is 30 minutes south of east. The barrow which the Rev J F Chanter opened was between this line and the Longstone. He found charcoal, bone ash, and human bones including single and double teeth. The excavation continued until the whole of the small cairn surrounding the burial had been removed, but nothing was found.
