1780 Payroll Roster from Captain Lemuel Clapp's Company Historic The Captain Lemuel Clap House (1767)
1780-Dated Revolutionary War, Payroll Roster from Captain Lemuel Clapp's Company, Includes Seven Minutemen, Very Fine.
An original, Manuscript Document Signed by the enlisted men in Captain Lemuel Clapp's Company, Dorchester, Massachusetts, measuring 13” x 8.25”, 1780. The men acknowledge receipt "of Captain Lemuel Clapp, the whole of the State's Wages for the months of February, Marchand April, 1780, and the whole of the wages due for the month of April for the same year." A scarce military payroll, with seven minutemen (denoted by an "M") who were members of the Dorchester company which assembled on April 19, 1775, the day of the Battle of Lexington. Normal folds, minor edge chipping.

The men listed are: Capt. Lemuel Clapp (M), Nathaniel Topliff, Lemuel Clapp Jr., Lt. Nathaniel Clapp (M), Edward Wiswell, Lt. Bird, Daniel Fairne (M), Timothy Wales, David Clapp Jr., Aaron Bird, Ezra Clapp (M), John Clapp, William Bullock, Ephraim Mann, Christopher Capen, William Mann, John Wiswell Lemuel Clapp, John Blackman, John Atherton (M), James Humphrey, Silas Niles, William Humphrey, Jonathan Clapp Jr., Ebenezer Withington, Joseph Withington (M), John Capen George Baker, Nathaniel Glover, Jonathan Bird (M), Reuben Torrey, Thomas White, Jonathan Bird Jr., Enoch Glover Jr., John Foster, Jr., Joseph Bird Jr., Ebenezer Maxfield (M), and Francis De Luce (M).
The Captain Lemuel Clap House (1767) is a historic house located at 199 Boston Street, Dorchester, Massachusetts. It is now owned by the Dorchester Historical Society, which opens the house for tours two afternoons per month. It is one of two Clapp Houses owned by the society that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It appears that a house has occupied this site since about 1633, and possibly today's house was its enlargement.

Although there is no solid evidence for this possibility, the Clapp family genealogy records that such a first house was built circa 1633 by Roger Clapp, one of Dorchester's original settlers in 1630, and then rebuilt and enlarged by his descendant Lemuel Clap in 1767. On the other hand, the Historical Society also has evidence that the earlier house was built by the Ward family at the beginning of the 18th century.

There seems little doubt, however, that today's house was substantially constructed by Lemuel Clap in 1767. The house was purchased by Historical Society in 1945, and moved several hundred yards from Willow Court to its current location in 1957. Its rooms currently contain items from the Society’s historical collection
