    • NICHOLAS KNAPP
      MASSACHUSETTS-CONNECTICUT
      (c1606-1670)

      [Transcibed the following back when I was still "collecting" names anddates. Currently seeking the source.]

      Nicholas KNAPP born c1606 in England, died April 16,1670, Stamford,CT. He married Elinor (c1606-1658) ________ possibly in England

      c.1630. They were the parents of nine children.

      Nicholas and his first wife, Elinor, departed Southampton, EnglandMarch 22, 1630 to Yarmouth, England and departed April 6, 1630, toSalem, MA, arriving there June 12th and settled at Watertown, Ma. Theycame to New England with the "Winthrop/Saltonstall Expedition of1630." As stated in the book,The Winthrop Fleet of 1630 (Reprint1976), by Charles Edward BANKS, :53, QUOTE: "...As there is no knownlist if emigrants, who came in the Winthrop Fleet, so there is none ofthose who came in particular ships...."

      Fortunately, for our purposes, there exists a list of seventy names ofthose who came with the fleet; a rough list prepared by Winthrop.Among those entered is found the names Nicholas and Elinor(????)Knapp. Possibly aboard the ARBELLA

      In the Watertown Books of Town Proceedings-Books I & II he appearsmany times and his total inventory consisted of the following acreage:1. An Homestall of Sixteen Acres. 2. Two Acres in Pine Marsh. 3. OneAcre in Pond Meadow. 4. Thirty Acres of Upland. 5. Six Acres ofPlowland. 6. Seven Acres of Meadow. 7. Thirteen Acres of Upland. 8. AFarme of One Hundred and Seventeen Acres of Upland.

      The MA Colonial Records, under date of March 1, 1630/31, shows thatNicholas KNOP (KNAPP), was fined five pounds for taking upon himselfto cure the scurvy by water of no worthe or value, which he sold at avery deare rate. The water had been found beneficial and the suitdropped upon payment of costs.

      He sold his lands at Watertown, Ma, on May 6, 1646 and removed toWethersfield, CT. then possibly Rye, CT,then possibly to Greenwich, CTand then finally to Stamford, CT where he settled and probablyremained until his death in April 1770.

      Nicholas KNAPP's first wife Elinor died in 1658 and Nicholas married2. Unity the widow of Clement BUXTON Sr. within the year.
