Biography

John was known as CAPTAIN JOHN CLAY, "the English Grenadier". John was the earliest American ancestor of the Clay family to come to Virginia. He arrived in Jamestown with his two younger brothers in the 'TREASURER", FEB. 1613. His wife Anne arrived in the 'ANN", August 1623. In 1624 he was living in Charles City, Virginia, having just came to America from England. John was patented 1200 acres in Charles City County, Virginia, beginning at the lands granted by order of Court to Francis Hooke, up to the head of Wards, his creek, and bounded on the north by the James River. Due 100 acres to him as an old planter before the government of Sir Thomas Dale, and the other 1100 for the transportation of 21 persons by the "west"., July 13, 1635. These land granted John were near the present City Point, only a few miles from what is now Chesterfield County, and no other settler of the name is mentioned in any record in this section.
