    ORIGIN: Salcombe Regis, Devonshire.
    CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: "Edward Clappe" and "Prudence Clappe" were among those admitted to the second church at Dorchester on or soon after the organization of the church on 23 August 1636; the entry is apparently annotated to indicate that Edward Clap was deacon, probably at a later date [DChR 3]. "The 8th day of the eleventh month [January] 1664[/5] being Sabbath Day Deacon Edward Clap departed this life & now resteth with the Lord there to keep an eternal Sabbath with God & Christ in heaven, after that he had faithfully served in the office of a deacon for the space of about five or six and twenty years, and being the first church officer of this church that was taken away by death since the first joining together in Covenant which is now 28 years four months and odd days" [DChR 9].
    FREEMAN: 7 December 1636 (second in a sequence of seven Dorchester men) [MBCR 1:372].
