  • ID: I3211
  • Name: James Claypool jr
  • Given Name: James
  • Surname: Claypool
  • Suffix: jr 1
  • Sex: M
  • Name: James Claypoole 2
  • Birth: INT @#DJULIAN@ 12 AUG 1664 (12th day 6 month 1664) in Scots yard near London stone 2
  • Note: 3Rebecca Irwin Graff has James d. by 1706, probably in New castle,, Delaware.
  • Date: 22 Jun 2004
  • Note:
    According to AMGrif:

    'Born "abt 8 of ye Clock in ye Morning in Scots yard near London stone"

    'WEAVER & ATTORNEY----NEW CASTLE was then Pennsylvania but is now Delaware

    'Named in the will of Mary Williams, probated 28 OCT 1695 in New Castle, Delaware as "James Claypool & his wife Mary..."

    'CLERK OF FREE SOCIETY OF TRADERS 1683---CLERK OF THE COURT OF COMMOM PLEAS 1689-1701. Built GIPIN HOUSE in Philadelphia.'

    She lists his birth date as "12 JUN 1664" in "LEWES,SUSSEX CO,DELAWARE". Both appear to be wrong. His father's own account has him born (as she shows above) in Scots Yard, which is in or near London, England. He also gives the date as "12th day 6 month 1664", and it is clear from the other dates that he gives in this form that he is counting in the old style whereby March is the first month. Thus, the correct date is Aug 12, 1664.
