Notes

  • Hotten's LISTS OF EMIGRANTS TO AMERICA: "In the spring of 1669, Zachariah Moorman, his sons, Thomas and Charles, daughter Sallie Ann (wife of Micajah Clark), Michael and Margaret Clark with their sons, Micajah, Francis, Edward, Roger, William, Thomas and Christopher, and David Terrell, embarked at Southhampton, England, in the ship Glasgow, and sailed to Barbados, West Indies."
  • Michael left Southhampton, England in 1669 for Barbados on the "Glasgow"- the same voyage that carried the Zacharia Moorman family across the Atlantic. With Micajah were his wife Margaret and their six sons: Micajah, Francis, Edward, Roger, William and Thomas. The Clarks stayed in Barbados initially, while the Moormans went on to South Carolina. However at least some of the sons went to Virginia and may well have influenced the Moorman decision to leave South Carolina and migrate north to Virginia. Micajah married Zacharia's daughter Sarah Moorman so communication between the two families likely continued after their common voyage. Michael also had a son Christopher who became a strong figure in Virginia colonial history.

-------------------- Born in England, probably 1620's or 30's, inherited his father's land in Virginia, but apparently never resided there. In the spring of 1669 he and his family with the Moorman family sailed to Barbados where he was a landowner in Christ Church Parish.
