Clophill, Clapwell Bedfordshire (Completed)
« on: Sunday 15 April 12 14:15 BST (UK) »
Does anybody know if Clophill and Clapwell are the same.  I have been trying to find Clapwel on the maps and cannot find it. I have a marriage of a person from Clapwel 1741.

Thankyou Suz

So I should say that this couple living in Clophill are mine.  I wanted to check for certain before entering them on my tree as the marriage said he was from Clapwel.
