  • Birth*: 21 May 1781; Newburgh, Ulster Co., New York, U.S.A.; per GEDCOM of Cheryl (Kemp) Taber, March 18 2017.1
  • Marriage*: 6 December 1808; per GEDCOM of Cheryl (Kemp) Taber, March 18 2017.; Principal=Margaret Stanclift1
  • Death*: 30 October 1841; Barriefield, Frontenac Co., Canada West; per GEDCOM of Cheryl (Kemp) Taber, March 18 2017.1
  • Note*: between 1812 and 1814; Kingston, Fronteanc Co., Upper Canada; From the record for his wife, Margaret (Stanclift) Knapp: "James Knapp was a large, robust, and strong man, who transported supplies to Canadian Regiments during the War of 1812. David Stanclift, son of Lemuel said in his memoirs "One man could throw any man in the Regiment and bantered Knapp frequently to wrestle with him. He told him it was no use saying 'You are nothing in my hands but you are so eager I will agree to throw you with one hand in my pants pocket'. He threw him several times in that shape before the whole Regiment." per GEDCOM of Cheryl (Kemp) Taber, March 18 2017.1
  • Note: 1828; Cataraqui Bridge, Kingston, Frontenac Co., Upper Canada; "http://k7waterfront.org/Topic/__Whig20070720; Kingston's gateway to history; The Lasalle Causeway opened for business 90 years ago - just in time; Old James Knapp possibly took up where the Indians left off and with good business sense saw the need of transportation for travellers wishing to get across the mouth of the Rideau ... he rigged up a cable from shore to shore and started the business of shuffling carts, rigs, pedestrians and what have you over on his boat. There is a story, handed down from father to son, that at the bottom of the Rideau River at the foot of Knapp's Boathouse lies the rotting hull of a ferry boat, resting these many years from the sight of man. That ferry boat has not been forgotten in the minds of older residents of the district. It was reputedly the first means of getting across the stretch of water where the Cataraqui and St. Lawrence rivers merge, now spanned by the Lasalle Causeway. According to memories dimmed by the passage of many years, the ferry was operated by the late James Knapp. The Penny Bridge completed in 1828 by the Cataraqui Bridge Company, took the place of the Knapp ferry boat. A long, low, squat wooden structure built on timber cribs and pilings, this rickety configuration spanning from shore to shore would eventually divide Kingston's inner and outer harbour permanently. Sitting almost upright somewhere near the middle, the Penny Bridge had a toll booth with a drawbridge that needed to be pulled aside for vessel traffic. In a short time, the volume of steamboat traffic increased as lumber and passenger steamers started using Colonel John By's Rideau Canal to travel for commercial purposes from Bytown (Ottawa) to Kingston once the southern threat of invasion was over. The traffic over the bridge also increased as farmers from outlying hamlets brought their livestock to the Kingston market. The charge for crossing ranged from a penny per person. to a penny for every ox, cow, bull or lamb. to five cents for a horse and 14 cents for a horse and cart. The Cataraqui Bridge Company eventually leased the bridge to various entrepreneurs, the last being Charles and John Bowman of Barriefield." per GEDCOM of Cheryl (Kemp) Taber, March 18 2017.1
  • Note: 1832; Barriefield, Frontenac Co., Upper Canada; "Excerpts from LILACS AND LIMESTONE, an illustrated History of Pittsburgh Township 1787-1987 by William J. Patterson, published by the Pittsburgh Historical Society in 1989.; Page 93 refers to the Barrisfield pleasure boat industry and says "the Knapps were in business almost continuously 1832-1929". The documentation reference was "Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, an essay by C.W. Cooper" (Kingston:Creighton, 1856) page 52. Also a Pittsburgh Historical Society Paper entitled "Boat Building in Barrisfield" by R. A. Cardwell; Page 94 photograph of the boat yard of J. Knapp and Son Boat Builder on Green Bay [Knapp Collection]; Page 197 indicates that Barrisfield was the most important centre in the Township and citing "The boat building business was booming in 1871, with no less than four shops functioning : Knapps (William and James) , building twelve and repairing twenty a year;...."; Page 202 Photograph of "Some of the Knapp boats at Green Bay.

  • Death*: 4 July 1850; Pittsburgh Twp., Frontenac Co., Canada West; "Margery was a widow living Barriefield, Pittsburgh Township, Frontenac County, Ontario, Canada by Feb. 28, 1850 when she wrote her will(1). Barriefield is just across the river from Kingston. Margery appointed daughter Sarah Knapp as executrix and left her estate to Sarah. A codicil referred to debt between James and William Knapp for which Margery was assuming responsibility. It is probable that they were sons who inherited fathers property at time of his death and thus did not share in the widow's portion which Margery left to her daughter in return for her care. Margery's will was proved July 18, 1850. The Will and Codicil was witnessed by James Nickalls(2). Descendants of Margery and James Knapp still live in the Barrisfield area.
