EARLY BELKNAPS: HISTORIES and DOCUMENTS  
Later English Belknaps
Gathered here is information on "later" English Belknaps (post-1600 Belknaps), whose relationship to the family of Sir Robert Belknap is presently unknown.
Common family lore states that the surname Belknap "died out" in England within a few generations following the emigration to Massachusetts in America of Abraham Belknap (f/k/a Beltoft).  That the surname Belknap did not die out with the death of Sir Edward Belknap or the emigration of Abraham Belknap is clear from the number of later references to individuals in England surnamed Belknap, Bellknap, Bellknapp, Bellnap, Bellnapp, Belnapp, Belnap, etc.
The surname survived in England at least until 1901 (see "Alice Bilnap" below).
Much work remains to be done on researching and reconstructing the lives and families of these individuals.
