Clapp Family

It remains a mystery to some as to who Captain John Clapp's father was, it could most possibly be Captain Elias Clapp, Mariner of Deptford, Kent, England. Since Gilson Clapp was not mentioned in Captain Elias Clapp's will, one is to assume that he was not a son. Gilson came to South Carolina with John but the exact relationship has not been established.

The Will of Elias Clapp does not mention Gilson Clapp so it is possible that he is not a son but another relative??
