Chapman was named for William Chapman, who owned slate quarries there. William Chapman was from Cornwall, England. He was born in 1816 in Mt. Tonenshau in Brussels, where his mother had gone to nurse his father after being severely injured in the Battle of Waterloo. At the age of seven William started working in the Delabole slate quarries in Cornwall, where his father worked. At the age of 26, Chapman emigrated to the United States, where he leased property in Northampton County. He later purchased the property and started the Chapman Slate Company.
While the quarries were originally opened in 1850, the company itself was officially incorporated by a special act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania in 1864 with a capital stock of $300,000. The quarry grew to a considerable size measuring from 700 to 800 feet along a longitudinal joint and was about 200 feet wide and 300 feet deep. William Chapman died in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 1903 at the age of 86.
