Earl of Northampton, which he
performed with great loyalty and integrity. He had four children by dame Mercy, the daughter of Philip Brace, Esq. of Doverdale, in the county of Worcester, viz. Sir Simon Clarke, Bart.

jC. She was the best of wives, best of mothers, and best of friend
Mr. Philipot, in his discourse on Woodchurch, gives an account, That Woodchurch, in the hundred of Blackburn in Kent, was the habitation of a family of as deep root in antiquity, as any in this track; who extracted their surname, as well as borrowed their first original from this place. Roger de Woodchurch is the first who does occur ; who in the ancient evidences, and deeds of this place, which are not cloistered within any date, finds a frequent mention ; and from him (as appears from an old pedigree of this family) did it revolve to his grand-child, Sir Simon de

Woodchurch, who is in the register of those eminent persons who accompanied Edw. I. in his victorious and triumphant expedition into Scotland, where his victories entailed upon his memory the character of Malleus Scotorum\ but in this Sir Simon, the name though not the male line, determined; for he, by matching with Susan, heir of Henry le Clerke of Munfidde, brought a large inheritance to own the signiory of Woodchurch; and his successors, in gratitude to a family which had added so much of splendour, and annexed so plentiful a revenue to his name, altered their paternal appellation from Woodchurch to Clerke; and so in all their deeds subsequent to this match have written Clerke, alias Woodchurch ever since. But as all families have their descent and period, as well as gradation and ascent, so had this; for after this manor had for so many hundred years continued in this family, which had been productive of men which had bn:n planted in places of the greatest eminence, by which they were obliged to perform their service to thoir country, it came down at last to Humphrey Clerke, Esq. who about the year 1594 passed it away by sale, to Walter Harlackenden, Esq. whose daughter and heir, Debora, married Sir Edw. Hales, Bart.'
