324 Years Ago Today

On April 1, 1689, three hundred and twenty-four years ago today, Nicholas Lapham (1689-1758), my 7th great grandfather, was born in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts the son of John Lapham (ca. 1635-1710) and Mary Mann (ca. 1640-1712).

Birth Record of Nicholas Lapham (1689-1758). (Nicholas’s birth record is mentioned following that of his sister’s.)

Nicholas was the first in my line of my Lapham ancestors to have been born in America, his father having immigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony from Devonshire, England in 1660 aboard the Hercules.
