"Timothy (still alive in 1782), was a merchant (and possibly a soldier) of Skibbereen, presumably quite prosperous, as he sent two of his sons to Scotland to pursue medical studies. Tim Clerke's wife appears to have been Jane Young, daughter of John Young. Tim Clerke and Jane had, at least four 11 sons, Thomas (1761-1840), Dr Jonathan Clerke (1764-1838) who practised medicine in nearby Bandon and sired many prominent army officers for the British Crown 12 , Dr St. John Clerke (1769-1840, Skibbereen ) and William Clerke, a corn merchant and miller (1766-1820), father of Alexander"[1]
