About Capt. Samuel Clapp

From Find A Grave Memorial# 69138199

Samuel was born in Dorchester to Roger Clapp and Johanna Bird Ford, when his mother was 18 years old.

He married Hannah Leeds, daughter of Richard and Joan Leeds, on Jan. 18, 1658 in Dorchester. Samuel and Hannah had many children, but only two sons and two daughters that lived to a adult age.

The town record of the Clapp family reads,

"He was a wise and prudent man," says Mr. Blake, "partaking of the choice of spirit of his father, treading in his steps and making good his ground; he was eminent, treading for religion, and of a blameless and unspotted conversation. He was early and constantly employed in public affairs; was Captain of the military company, Representative for the town, and, the last seven years of his life, a Ruling Elder of the Church of Dorchester, where he lived."
