Mystery surname spelling

Postby Will Mundy » Wed Feb 26, 2020 6:56 pm

Hello,
I’m trying to trace one of my ancestors from the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire area born in the 1720’s/30’s. My ancestor was called Susannah Clapn she married a Thomas Large and married in 1749 in Hampnett Gloucestershire. I can’t figure out what her surname was however, does anybody have any ideas?

The marriage record images on Ancestry indicate Susanna was from Eastleach Turville. Could the surname be Clappum? There are some late 17th and early 18th century records on FS with this surname in Eastleach Turville.

The scans on Ancestry show she's from Eastleach Turville, just down from Aldsworth where he is from.

You're heading for Somerset and Dorset where Calpen/ Calpin are so I'd look at them.

EDIT: Mo has posted while I typed, but I think we're on the same train of thought..

Movidger has probably got it.
Ancestry register scans...
Susanna buried 1722, daughter of Thomas.

Thomas Clappum married Joan Baggot 9 apr 1693
1695 there's Mary, daughter of Thomas and Joane.
1696 Joan, daughter of Thomas and Joan.
1700 William, son of Thomas ( a Shepherd) and Joan
1700 13 nov 1700, Joan, wife of Thomas, a Shepherd, buried.

Thomas Clappum ( shepherd) married Mary Wyat 1 jan 1701
Then it changes, 1702, Mary daughter of Thomas, a Shepherd and Mary
1704 Samuel, son of Thomas, a Shepherd and Mary
1708 William son of Thomas and Mary.
1711 Sussana daughter of Thomas and mary, but she could be the one who died in 1722.
1714 Robert son of Thomas.
1717 Abigail daughter of Thomas.
1719 George son of Thomas.
1721 Jenny daughter of Thomas.

Clappums are Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. There are some in Norfolk.

Well done you two. Hope you get some thanks.
The question is, Will is charging 25 quid an hour, with gold packages of a grand to boot:o
https://willmundygenealogy.co.uk/services

He has techniques for breaking down brick walls (so he claims), has found lots of stuff in wills (though he wanted several transcribed for him on here a few months ago).
Shouldn't he be the one finding this sort of stuff?

Will you "regularly contribute on the forum of the magazine".
What do you contribute, other than your problems?

I’m pleased you have taken the time to visit my website and study the packages that are of course priced at the going rate, some people are charging as much as £40 per hour so £25 isn’t too bad really is it.

It is true that I do have a number of ways to break down brick walls but I’m sure you’ll appreciate I can’t reveal everything. And yes I have asked people for help transcribing Wills as I do find some old English difficult to read, however I’m enrolling on a course to change that. I do, as I’m sure you do sometimes ask people for help or ideas.

If you have read the magazine in question you would have seen I have submitted several photographs, I have answered questions or contributed to things on here too.

Fair enough Will, I genuinely wish you well.
But you won't be able to come to the forum when you get stuck with a problem of a client.
No, I have never posted a query on here or anywhere else. I am scared that no one will answer it!
I have about ten thousand posts in all - half on rootschat, the others split between here and the ancestry boards, have used another name - all have been help given, absolutely gratis.
Good luck!
Ian

P.S. I am now retiring from WDYTYA forum.
It has been a wonderful ten years!
