Richard CLAPP [scrapbook] died 1 before 25 Jul 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. Richard married 2 Christian CLAPP in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

Christian CLAPP was born 1 about 1540 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. She died 2 in BET 25 JUL 1608 AND 12 AUG 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. Christian married 3 Richard CLAPP in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

Christian had a will 4 in 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

The yeoman family of Clapp was living in the Devonshire parish of Sidbury as early as 1883 whep Roger Clappc was listed in a subsidy, and Clapp's hill is still a place name in the parish after the lapse of six centuries. Unfortunately, the parish register of Sidbury has been destroyed by fire so that it has been impossible to determine the exact relationship which the Clapps who were living in the parish in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries bore to each other. A few Clapp wills in the various probate courts of Devonshire had been abstracted before the Registry at Exeter was totally destroyed in the blitzkrieg, but they do not serve to make a proven pedigree of any great length.
1. CHRISTIAN CLAPP of Sidbury, co. Devon, a grandmother when she made her will in 1608, was probably born about 1540. The name of her husband is not known. She had an only son, Nicholas Clapp, and, as Peter Clapp of Sidbury, husbandman, who made his will in 1622, mentions his brother Nicholas Clapp, there is a possibility that Christian s husband had had an earlier wife who was the mother of Peter Clapp and his brother Robert C]app whom Peter also names in his will. This theory is, of course, dependent on Christian s son and Peter's brother being the same man. In 1555 a William Clapp of Sidbury, but living in the parish of Harforde, made a will leaving legacies to the two children of his son Richard, who appears to have been his only son. One may hazard a guess, based purely on time and place, that Richard Clapp was the husband of our widow Christian, but the family may have, in the interval between 1338 (or earlier) and 1555, produced very distantly related branches even in the same parish, while the wills show that in the neighboring villages there were in the sixteenth century many other representatives of the name. It is safer to begin our pedigree with the lone widow.

Christian Clapp of Sidbury, co. Devon, widow, made her will July 25, 1608, and it was proved August 12, 1608, by the executor Nicholas Clapp of Sidbury. She bequeaths to the poor of Sidbury. To her god-children. To god-daughter dwelling at Broadclist, "one Petecotte with browne charmlet bodyes." To Mary Clapp, a gown. To Elizabeth Clapp, my son Nicholas his *Abstracts of the wills and other English material were kindly supplied to me by Mary Lovering Holman.

NICHOLAS CLAP AND HIS DESCENDANTS.
[Compiled from MS. of EBENEZER CLAP of Dorchester.]

NICHOLAS CLAP, fourth son of Richard  Clap of England1 was born in 1612. He was a cousin of the celebrated Capt. Roger Clap, through whose influence, it is supposed, Nicholas2 came to this country about 1633, and settled in Dorchester, Mass. His name appears on the Town Records various times in connection with the municipat affairs of the town; and he was a deacon of the church. His first wife was Sarah Clap, a sister of Ca1it. Roger Clap; his second, Abigail, 1widow of Robert Sharp of Brookline. it is presumed that the residence of Nicholas  Clap was in the north part of the town of Dorchester, near the house now standing, which was occupied by the late Deacon Ehenezer Clap, senior, who died March 6th, 1860. See Reg. XIV. 284. Nicholas Clap died suddenly, in his barn, Nov. 24th, 1679.  His estate was appraised by James Hum-frey, William Sumner, Henry Leadhetter. The balance, after deducting the debts, was £358, 4, 4. His sons, Nathaniel and Ebenezer, were ad. ministrators. He had four brothers, viz.: Ambrose  and Richard,  who lived and died in England; Thomas,2 b. in 1597, d. in Scituate, Mass., April 20, 1684, leaving descendants; John,  d. in Dorchester, July 24, 1655. John left a widow, Joan, (who m. subsequently, John Ellis of Medfield,) but no children. In his will, dated July 11, 1655, be gives to his wife his dwelling-house, with all his lands, during her life. After her decease, said house and lands are given "to the muintwnance of the ministry and a Schoole in Dorchester foreuer." The portion of the land situated at "Dorchester neck," now South Boston Point, was sold in 1835, for upwards of $13,000. See Hist. Dorchester,p. 442.
