About Elizabeth Clarke, of Kent

She was married to James CLERKE about 1508 in Wrotham, Kent, England. Children were: George CLERKE (CLARKE), Henry CLERKE, Walter CLERKE, John CLERKE.


Elizabeth Ferrers, Visitation of Warwick, Visitation of Kent, Will of Sir Edward Ferrers, dated July 10, 1535 (P,C.C. 29 Hogen), married circa 1508 James Clerke, of Forde Hall, Gentleman, son of John Clerke, of Ford, near Wrotham, Kent., by his wife Lucy Moyle. He died Sept. 20, 1553

The source in Clerke history lists her parents as Sir Henry Knight and Margaret (Heckstall) and the sister of Sir Edward Ferrers of Baddesley Clinton, co. Warwick, and Peckham, c. Kent, Knight (Visitation of Warwickshire, 1619, page5). The visitation of Kent, 1619 erroneously states that Elizabeth, wife of James Clerk, was a daughter of Sir Edward Ferrers; but Sir Edward Ferrers in his will, dated 10 July 1535 (P.C.C., Hogen 29), mentions his daughter Elizabeth as wife of John Hampden and also leaves a legacy to his nephew George Clerke. This correction has been made.
James CLERKE was born about 1485 in Wrotham, Kent, England. He died on 20 Sep 1554 in Wrotham, Kent, England.

He was married to Elizabeth FERRERS about 1508 in Wrotham, Kent, England. Children were: George CLERKE (CLARKE), Henry CLERKE, Walter CLERKE, John CLERKE.
