Joseph Clayton - Christened 12 September 1659 in Rumboldswyke Parish, Sussex.[1]


Joseph married Elizabeth Balzer on the 5th of April, 1683.[2]


There are conflicting reports for Joseph: an unsourced tree previously cited to this profile (link broken) says he died on 05 February 1683 in Nottingham, Chester, Pennsylvania.[3] However, Hunt suggests that he did not migrate to the new world and likely died in England.[2] Further research is warranted.
