About William Clark, of Haddam

WILLIAM CLARK (d. 1681) of Haddam

Parents: Unknown

William died on 22 Jul 1681 in Haddam. [Ref][Ref]

The name of William's wife is (apparently) to be found no where in the records except possibly in John Winthrop Jr.'s medical journal. On 23 May 1664, Winthrop says that he treated "Clark, William his wife Katherine of Hartford". [Ref, p. 446] In his 3 Aug 1683 will Thomas Bunce left his sister Katharen Clark £10. [Ref, pp. 283-4] This suggests that William's wife might be Katherine Bunce.

On 2 Jan 1639 a William Clark, servant to John Crow, was fined 40s. by the Connecticut Court for 'misdemeanor in drinking' and corporal punishment was suspended upon promise of improved behaviour. [Ref 1;41]

William Clark of Hartford was of Haddam in 1662. [Ref] William was one of the 28 original proprietors of a large tract of land now included in Haddam.

William signed his will on 30 Jun 1681. It was proved on 3 Sep 1681. Inventory amounted to £412-18-00. He mentions his wife; his sons William, Thomas, John, Joseph; his son-in-law Daniel Hubbard and grandchild Daniel Hubbard; his daughters Welles, Fennoe and Spencer and his daughter Hannah. He says that it is his will that his grandson Daniel Hubbard be taught to read and write and that he is to be at the disposal of his wife as long as she lives and to his son after than, until he is 21. If his father objects 'he shall satisfy for his bringing up'. [Ref, pp. 290-1]
