Contemporary James Clarks

James Clark of Boston and Roxbury - died 1674; m. Elinor
James Clark of New Haven - died after 1682. Had a son James Clarke (c1641 New Haven-c1713 Stratford)
James Clarke of Plymouth - (c.1636-b. 1731) m. Abigail Lothrop
James Clark son of William Clark and Mary Weston (1602-1648) died in England; spouse of Sarah Harvey

Disputed Origins

James is not the son of William and Mary of East Farleigh. Therefore he was not baptized in 1602, nor was he married to Sarah Harvey

From “Genealogical Research in England.” by Alfred Rudulph Justice. New England Historical and Genealogical Register. 74:130. Boston: NEHGS, 1920 (cited below). This is the pedigree of Jeremiah Clark of Rhode Island and does not claim to be the pedigree of James of New Haven or of Boston/Roxbury.

Re: James Clark, son of William Clerke, of East Farleigh, co. Kent, and St. Botolph Aldgate, London, Gent. & his wife Mary Weston (c1579-b1614)

“James, of Aldgate Ward, London, grocer, the testator of 1647, bapt. 31 Oct. 1602; d. between 6 Dec 1647 and 10 Sept 1649; m. (1) about 1630 Sarah Harvey; m. (2) Helen ____ who was living 6 Dec 1647. ...” Children: Mary one year old in 1633, James, Anne

Baptism: 31 Oct 1602 belongs to James Clarke of Aldgate Wood. Baptism: April 1602 is not proved to belong to this James either.

James Clark of New Haven

James Clark (with Sarah?) arrived in Boston in 1637, aboard the Hector [1]

James Clark married (2) Ann, the widow of John Wakefield on Oct 17, 1661, in New Haven, Connecticut[2]. She died in 1695.[3]

Death date in December 1674, belongs to James Clark of Roxbury. There is a James Clark who continues to appear in the New Haven records until 1682.[4] James' son James went to Stratford by 1664 (children were born there), and there do not appear to be any other likely Jameses in New Haven at the time.

Research Notes

  • Not listed in Manwaring's Digest of Early CT probate (which doesn't include New Haven) Jacobus lists no death so there must not be probate in New Haven either.
