and Coi. Thomas 5 Clap, Scituate, Mass.

He was b. at Scituate, 11 Nov. 1705; d. 31 May, 1774, in
his 69th year, at Scituate. He was son of Lieut. John 4 Clap.
b. lf>77, m. 1702, Hannah Gill, his cousin; grandson of
Samuel 3 Clap, who was b. at Scituate, about 1642, m. 1666,
Hannah Gill ; and great gr. son of Dea. Thomas 2 Clap (son of
Richard 1 ), who was b. at Dorchester, Eng., 1597. and came to
America 1633, and after stopping a while at Weymouth, settled
in 1640 at Scituate, Mass., and was regarded " as an active,
useful and venerable man." His farm was on the north-west
corner of Stockbridge Mill Pond, near which lies the scene of
" the Old Oaken Bucket," a famous temperance ode, by
Samuel Woodworth, a native of Scituate.

Thomas 5 Clap was graduated at Harvard. College, 1725, was
Pettier! as the fifth pastor, over the first church at Taunton,
Mass., 1729. He left Taunton, 1738, and returned to Scituate,
said one, " on account of some trouble in collecting his salary,"
and others said "they would never have another rich man for
their minister." He was not again in the ministry, but was
much in public life. He was colonel of the militia, represented
that town many years in the Legislature, and he was judge of
the courts for the County of Plymouth, and his fatal illness
(palsy) came upon him while presiding on the bench at Ply-
mouth. He died in his 69th year, on the 31st of May, 1774,
after a long and wearisome seven years' illness.- He wps a man
of medium height, rather fleshy, but of fine personal appear-
ance. He was social in his temper, and extremely fond of
company, and very hospitable. Before being afflicted with
palsy he was remarkably pleasant and mild in his intercourse
with others, but afterwards he was irritable and hard to please,
which is the usual effect of this malady. His remains were
buried in the "common" graveyard, but the stone has been
removed to the family yard near his residence, which has been
occupied by his grandson Leonard Clap, who m. Eliza Stetson.

Rev. Thomas Clap m. 9 Sept. 17 — , Mary Leonard, who
was born " where her father lived in baronial style," at Norton,
Mass., 17 Jan. 1714, and died 27 June, 1741, of measles, at
Scituate, but was buried with her " fathers." She was dau. of
Major George Leonard, by his wife Rachael Clapp, dau. of
Stephen and Temperance Clapp, of Norton, and wid. of Mr.
Lane. This family of Leonard trace their lineage through
"John of Gaunt" to Edward III., and claim the title of
" Lord Dacre." But in this country the members of the family

there you will find a Leonard."
