It is believed that DEACON GEORGE CLARK, his wife, Sarah (even though the stone says that his wife's name was Mary, it was actually Sarah, and their child who was my ancestor, Ensign George Clark, came on the MARTIN from Great Munden with Rev. Peter Prudden arriving about 1637 in Boston. He along with the "Hertfordshire Group" moved on to New Haven Colony and were planters of Milford, Conn. There were two George Clarks in Milford. This George Clark was referred to as Sr. and Deacon, and the other was referred to as Jr.
His occupation was a carpenter.
I cannot verify this information from Grant Sullivan, FAG contributor: " Deacon George Clark (Sr.), was a son of George Clark (Clarke) (1594 - 1661) & Grace Bodeye (1594 - 1688). The parents of Deacon George Clark stayed behind in England.
The parents of the elder George Clarke were George Clarke (1562 - 1616) & Elizabeth Bristowe (1569 - 1606). This 2nd elder George Clark was a son of William Clarke & Cecily Cartwright.
Therefore, Deacon George Clark (Sr) is the 3rd in a line of George Clark/Clarke's, and George Jr. is the 4th in the line.
