Dear Denise ~
John Knapp (died 1604), merchant, of St. Peter's, Ipswich, Suffolk and
his wife, Martha Blosse, had twelve children, among them three sons,
John (died young), John (again), and Thomas [see Walter C. Metcalfe,
ed., Vis. Of Suffolk 1561, 1577, and 1612 (1882): 149 (Knapp pedigree].
There was no son named Nicholas.
The Knapp family seated at Bures St. Mary, Suffolk, was a separate and
distinct family. The Knapp family of Bures St. Mary is in my own
ancestry, by the way.
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
