Birth: 1613
Norfolk, England
Death: Aug. 12, 1692
Norfolk County
Massachusetts, USA

She was possibly the daughter of Rowland Clarke of Dedham,MA.

NOTE: She has been said to be the daughter of Thomas Clarke (1567/8-1638) and Mary (Canne) Clarke of Banham, Co.Norfolk, but there are problems with this. Firstly, a daughter Priscilla born c1613 does not fit with the other listed children of Thomas and Mary, unless she was an unbaptized or unlisted child among all others baptized at Banham. Secondly, the will of Faith Catton of Barnham eliminates the possibility that Priscilla was a daughter of Thomas, as she names all other children of Thomas and Mary. Of note is that Thomas had a son named Rowland, and Thomas's father was named Rowland as well, so the suggestion that she may be of this family, but a daughter of Rowland Clarke, is possible. Thomas Clarke had a brother named Clement Clarke whose son Rowland, b.c1590, is supposedly the one who went to Dedham. That Rowland Clarke(here) is also said to be a son, b.c1570, of John Clarke and Katherine (Cooke) Clarke of Bedfordshire.

Children: Sarah Colburn Partridge, Rebecca Colburn Pratt, Nathaniel Colburn Jr, Priscilla Colburn Morse, John Colburn, Mary Colburn Richards, Hannah Colburn Aldridge, Samuel Colburn, Deborah Colburn Wight(first wife of Joseph Wight), Benjamin Colburn, and Joseph Colburn.
