About George Clark, "Jr. - farmer"

  1. Myrtle Stevens Hyde, FASG, The Engish Origins of "Farmer" George1 Clark(e) of Milford, Connecticut TAG (1999) 74:72-73
  2. Myrtle Stevens Hyde, FASG, The Family in England of "Farmer" George1 Clark(e) of Milford, Connecticut (Apr 2017) 89.2:127+ Baptism records were located in Kimpton, Hertfordshire, England for the family of George1 Clarke of Milford (called Jr/Farmer). He was baptized 22 Mar 1611 in the parish of Kimpton with all of his siblings son of Geroge Clarke and an unknown wife.
  • Noyes-Gilman ancestry; being a series of sketches, with a chart of the ancestors of Charles Phelps Noyes and Emily H. (Gilman) Noyes, his wife .. (1907)
  • Pg. 157
  • OUR first record of George Clark is as one of the original proprietors of Milford, Conn., in 1639, and, as Hinman says, "one of its most respectable citizens." He is called in the Milford records "George Clark Junior," or "George Clark farmer," to distinguish him from "George Clark carpenter and deacon," whose son Samuel, his daughter Mary married.
  • Pg. 158
  • He was evidently a young man, not long married, when he came from England with his wife Sarah (__) and one child John, as he lived fifty-one years in this country. They probably went directly to Connecticut, following his brother John Clark, who came from Cambridge, Mass., to Hartford, Conn., with Hooker's company, in 1636. It is thought that another brother, Daniel Clark, who was in Windsor, Conn., in 1639, may have come from England with George.
  • George Clark was a deputy from Milford to the General Court of Connecticut and New Haven eight times between 1666 and 1676. In the records he is designated as "Mr. George Clark."
  • He died in 1690 at Milford, and Savage says he "left a good estate." Sarah, his wife, survived him, but the date of her death is not known. On the handsome stone bridge in Milford, erected August 28, 1889, to celebrate the 250th anniversary of its settlement, is carved the names of the earliest settlers, among which are "George Clark and Sarah his wife."
  • George Clark mentions in his will his three brothers, John, Edward, and Daniel. Of these, Edward had apparently remained in England, and had left a legacy of one hundred pounds to George's children some years before. John is supposed to be Mr. John Clark, of Hartford, who was one of the most influential settlers in the colony. He was a soldier in one of the battles with the Pequots in 1637, one of the patentees of the Royal Charter in 1662, and deputy almost continuously from 1641 to 1665. The brother Daniel may probably have been the Hon. Daniel Clark, who as a boy came to Windsor, Conn., about 1639, with his uncle Rev. Ephraim Huit, and was the second husband of Martha (Pitkin) Wolcott, widow of Simon Wolcott, son of Henry Wolcott (126).
  • Children of George and Sarah (__) Clark
    • John, born in England before 1639; was admitted to the Church of Milford, Conn., in 1673, and was either unmarried or childless when his father died, as the estate was left to "my Grand Child Samuell Clark" in default of heirs of John.
    • Hannah, born in Milford in 1640; married in 1660, John Platt, son of Richard Platt.
    • Ruth, baptized in Milford, in 1642; married (1) Thomas Fitch, son of Thomas Fitch; married (2) John Plumb; married (3) John Wheeler, of Woodbury, Conn.
