CLAMPITT OF BOVEY TRACEY

 

It is very likely that Lawrence Clampitt who married Jane (Berry) Yeo in 1720 was a son of another Lawrence Clampitt who was buried at Hennock on 8 February 1695/96 and who married Elizabeth Merdon in 1688. However, the relationship has not been explicitly documented. The younger Lawrence may have been baptised in a period when there is a gap in the Hennock parish registers in the 1690s.
