published by margaret-amesbury - 2 months 8 days ago.

I have skeleton Clapp family tree and believe Richard's father was Richard 1738 who married Mary Dean in 1761 and 'Sarah Ames in 1779. He was a farmer in Chapel Allerton. They had children Joseph 1762, James 1763-1843 who married Mary? (farmer at Lympsham; Jane 1766 who married John Glanville; William 1769 who md Mary? farmer at Allerton; Hannah 1770/4; Robert 1771 Hannah 1776 md Joseph Stickland (all children of Mary Dean. Sarah Ames' children George 1787 (farmer Washbrook md Jane Tucker and Ambrose 1790 (Cooper stone Allerton) who married Mary Strange.

I have located a burial for a Fanny Clapp on the Freereg website. A Fanny Clapp was buried 24/8/1814 aged 35 years in Chapel Allerton parish church. This age at death would seem to be close to the baptism year of 1778. Perhaps she sadly died in childbirth or shortly afterwards? There is also a burial for a Richard Clapp on 1/12/1827 in the same church - however the age at death is quoted as 89 years, which does not fit your baptism year above. Unless there is an error in transcription? Maybe worth trying to access the parish records?

I hope this helps

I, too, have a similar story of a 4GGU - Robert Carlile, embracing the Mormon faith.  He and his family upsticked from Nottinghamshire and went to Utah - living mainly in Heber.

Whilst attending a talk at the recent GOONS conference the speaker mentioned that she had obtained some of the diary volumes of a man named Memmott (which was her one-name study).  This chap had also converted to Mormonism and wrote about his experiences travelling over to the USA and his first years setting up a farm and home.

I asked the speaker for contact details re the diary and I have ordered the first two volumes (of 7).  The time period for these diaries are from the mid C19th.  If anyone else is interested in these first-hand experiences then do get in touch jenny@towey.me.uk

Charles CLAPP and Mary Ann COLES
published by jacky3 - 3 months 11 days ago.

Hi Margaret,

My reply to this message seems to have gone astray.  

Briefly, your Charles Clapp is a yeoman farmer.  His Gt grandfather was George CLAPP, born Wedmore 1703, died Chapel Allerton 1783.  

My Charles CLAPP was a fisherman.  His Gt grandfather was also George CLAPP, born Wedmore 1703, died Chapel Allerton 1783.

Your Charles CLAPP is my second cousin four times removed.  My Charles CLAPP is my Gt Gt Grandfather.  So if you are referring to your own tree, then we must be related in some way.  

Regards, Jacky
