Notes for CLEMENT MINOR:

Provided by The Thomas Minor Society

Lieutenant Clement (Thomas), second child and son of Thomas Minor and Grace Palmer, was

baptized in Hingham, MA 4 Mar 1638 and went to Nameaug (New London), CT in 1658 with his

father's family. When his father moved from New London to Quaimbog and Togwonk in

Stonington, Clement remained behind and became a permanent resident (of New London). He

received a grant of land near to that of Walter Palmer's whose land it abutted on the south. In

Sept 1669, Clement applied for a house lot next to that of Grace Chappell. He was a very active

man and held many public offices in the town. He was a Lieutenant in the Militia which was a

considerable honor in his day. In the records of New London, Clement is mentioned as

"Deacon" or "Ensign", but the record of his appointment has not been found.

In October 1692, and in May 1696, Clement served as a Deputy for New London in the

Connecticut General Court. On April 30, 1691, he joined the First Congregational Church at

New London. It is thought that his election to the office of Deacon was soon after the death of

Deacon Hough, 10 August 1683. Shortly after this date, the Pastor, Rev. Bradstreet, died and

this probably explains why no record of Clement's election of the Deaconate was made. At a

town meeting on 19 December 1683, Clement and several others formed a committee to seek

advice in securing a minister for the town to replace Rev. Bradstreet. Ensign Clement was

one of those appointed to assign seats in the meeting house. He saw service in King Philip's War.

Deacon Clement, married first, Frances Burcham Willey 26 Novenber 1662. She was the

daughter of Edward Burcham of Lynn, MA, and widow of Isaac Willey, Jr. who died August

1662. She died 6 December 1672 and Clement married Martha Wellman 20 February 1673. She

was born in 1652 and died in New London 5 July 1681, the daughter of William Wellman and

Elizabeth Spencer. They had a daughter, Phebe, baptized July 26, 1679; married John Stebbins.

Clement married third Joanna____ who died 10 October 1700. Clement died 8 October 1700.


In the ancient burial grounds near Stonington, CT, there is an oblong stone of yellowish granite,

lying flat upon the surface and bearing the simple inscription, "CM 1700", marking the final

resting place of Clement Minor.
