My Descent from William Clapp (2370 words)
Roger Clapp was one of the first settlers of Dorchester, MA, where he was a proprietor, and was made a "freeman" on 14 May 1634.
Roger and his family lived probably in a house he built near the old causeway road leading to "Little Neck" (now South Boston) until he was appointed, by the General Court, Captain of the Castle, located on an island in Boston Harbor.
Roger was held in high regard as evidenced by a day of fasting and prayer being ordered by the Town of Dorchester, MA, on one occasion when he was seriously ill that they might pray for his recovery.
