Birth: Dec. 21, 1606, England
Death: Jul. 9, 1681
Newport County
Rhode Island, USA


He is very likely the Thomas Clifton baptized on Dec 21,1606 at Brandesburg, Co.Yorkshire, England, son of Richard Clifton. (from Family Search)

He married the widow Mary (Longbotham) Butterworth shortly after Jan 28,1640/1. Thomas may have had a prior wife.

Children: Patience Clifton Beere/Berry Allen and Hope Clifton Holder. Some sources say the Mary Clifton Bowen was a daughter of Mary (Longbotham) Butterworth, but Mary Clifton was born in 1628 (well before the marriage of Thomas Clifton and Mary Longbotham Butterworth), and she may have been a daughter of Thomas Clifton by a prior wife.
