Steve Bird posted this at Genforum: "William Clark was born on 6 Feb 1611 in Great Bromley, Essex (the records showing Westhorpe, Suffolk are conflating his records with a different William Clarke, son of Thomas Clark and Rose Kerridge, born 11 Feb. 1611). He died on 22 July 1681 in Haddam, CT, according to the Hartford Probate Records, p. 290, vol. I. (Again, some records show a death date of 1682 or even 1683. These dates may correspond to a different William Clark, but not the one married to Katherine Bunce.)
"According to Prentiss Glazier, "Clark-Clarke Families of Connecticut", NEHGR vol 128, (January 1974) pp. 22-27, William Clarke m. Katherine Bunce, and she bore him all eight of his children. If there was an earlier marriage, there were apparently no offspring.
"Katherine Bunce was born about 1610. I have seen a marriage date with William suggested as early as 1631 in Watertown MA. Torrey "supports" a marriage date of "about 1644." I believe that 1650 is simply too late for a marriage that bore eight children (she would have been nearly sixty by the eighth child, if we assumed an average of eighteen months between children, with the first coming at about age 41 or 42); it seems most unlikely.
"On the other hand, Torrey's "about 1644" is barely an improvement over the guess of 1650. 1631 seems more plausible to me, but I have yet to see any proof of this date, except for the LDS IGI record (which does not identify its source), and the rest of the dates given on the LDS website resemble an auction.
"The earliest child for which there is a record is John Clark, b. in Haddam in 1651. However, there are three children (Mary, Thomas and Hannah) for whom there is NO birthdate, and they are possibly OLDER than John. In William's will (Hartford Probate Records), Thomas appears clearly to be the oldest, since he is charged with taking care of his mother, and he is named as the executor of the will. (Hannah was unmarried at that time; she may have been a minor). With Thomas, and possibly one other child, OLDER than John, a 1650 marriage begins to look very unlikely.
"So, "about 1640" seemed a reasonable compromise. However, if a source is required, then Torrey's "about 1644" is the best we can do at the moment."
