Roger Clap, born in England in 1609, came to Dorchester on the Mary and John in 1630 and subsequently married Johanna Ford in 1633. This couple’s fourteen children included Experience, Waitstill, Preserved, Hopestill, Wait, Thanks, Desire, Unite and Supply. Seven of the Clap children lived to be adults.
I’ve seen Puritan-era names like Experience and Desire before, but this is the first Supply I’ve ever spotted. I wonder if one of the other five Clap children was named Demand. :)
