His mother died before he was a teenager, and in 1653 he married Prudence Lanckford, a daughter of William Lanckford, in St Pancras, London. Clayton became a carpenter by trade and a follower of the Quaker religion.

Further search looks like she married a Mickel 1st who died shortly after that marriage.There's still a question - was Prudence's father Robt Lankford or Robt Miller? My head is still spinning & would love to know who's who.
