Biography

SOURCE: http://www.billputman.com/Clayton.pdf

On November 7, 1653, William Clayton married Prudence Lanckford in St. Pancras Parish, Chichester, Sussex, England. This event is recorded in the Parish Register as, "William son of William Clayton of this parish and Prudence Lanckford of Peter the Less (Parish), daughter of William Lanckford of Groughton, Hampshire..."

Prudence was born in Surry in the early 1630s. She was a daughter of William Lanckford originally from Broughton Parish, Hampshire. There were a number of early genealogies that all stated Prudence's last name was Mickles. Louis Jones, on one of his many trips to England, determined she was a Lanckford.
However, she may have been married first to a man named Mickles who died shortly thereafter. Don't know, but it isn't really very important to our line who her first husband was...

William was a carpenter by trade and had joined the recently established Quaker religion. He was selected with others to act a Commissioner for William Penn to go to America, to West Jersey near Pennsylvania to clear any Indian titles to land that Penn had acquired near what is today Burlington, New Jersey just north of the colony of John Fenwick in Salem County, New Jersey.

William Clayton sailed for America on the ship Kent which left London in March of 1677 and arrived in New York in August of that year. His family was not listed on the register of the Kent, so they probably joined him later once he had established both the area and a home. During the next four years some fourteen hundred new arrivals came to Burlington and most of these were Quakers. The Clayton family probably arrived in the period around 1689 to 1680.

In 1681, William Clayton moved his family to Chester County, just across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania onto 500 acres of land he had patented.

On September 13, 1681 he presided over the first court held in Chester County. He was one of the first two judges for the City of Philadelphia. He was a member of William Penn's council in 1683 and 1684. He was acting Governor of Pennsylvania from 1684 to 1685.

William Clayton died in 1689. His Will Bond was number 119 and is filed in the office for wills in Philadelphia. There was no actual will, and the bond was written by his widow Prudence. She gives power of executor to her son William, the eldest.
