Biography

England flag
Walter Clopton was born in England.

Walter was the son of William Clopton of Castelyns, Groton, Suffolk and his wife, Margery Waldegrave, the daughter of Edward Waldegrave of Boxted, Essex.[1][2] He was baptized by the Rector of St. Bartholomew Church at Groton on 30 June 1585.[1][3]

He married Margaret Maidstone, the daughter of Robert Maidstone of Great Horkesley, Essex at Boxted on 21 April 1612[1], and they had three children:

Walter prepared a will on 24 December 1622, and he died shortly thereafter at Boxted, Essex.[1] His widow, Margaret, who was his Executrix, proved the will on 5 February 1622/23 at Colchester, Essex. Margaret was bequeathed £500, the Manor of Sampfords/Saundersfords in Great Waldingfield, Suffolk, and the furniture of her chamber. His daughter Margaret was to receive £100 upon attaining the age of 21 years, and the remainder of Walter's estate was to be divided between his two sons.[5]

Walter's widow, Margaret, subsequently married a grocer, Robert Crane of Coggeshall, Essex, in August 1631, and she lived until 1666.[1][2]
