George Clapham (also spelt as Claypham; 1550 – January 3, 1624) was the 12th great-grandfather, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line. George was the son of Thomas Clapham (1498 – 1563) and Charlotte Paslew (1525 – 1550) and is understood to have been born in Keighley, Yorkshire.
George married his wife Jenet Hirde on 27th or 28th September 1572 in Keighley. It is likely that George’s mother Charlotte died during childbirth in 1550. George is understood to have had a son named William who was born in 1575.
In Cometanic ancestry, George is categorised as part of the 14th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
