About Micajah Clark

Page 180 (Jacob)

Michael and Margaret Clark are believed to be the grandparents of Christopher Clark of Louisa Co., VA., Micajah being a key name in the families and three people with names of Michael's sons were settlers in New Kent Co., VA.

"In the spring of 1669 Zacharia 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 Southampton, England, in the ship "Glasgow", and sailed to Barbados, West Indies. Early the next year, 1670, Zacharia Moorman and family, Micajah and Sallie Ann Clark, joined immigrants who passed Barbados on their way to South Carolina, and landed with them near the site of Charleston (the first permanent settlement in South Carolina.) During the same year (1670), the Moorman and Clark families proceeded to Virginia and settled at Somerton, Nansemond Co."

Hi was born in England and accompanied his parents and inlaws to Barbados in 1669, but by the following year he had arrived in South Carolina and then settled in Nansemond, VA.
Sarah Moorman and her husband (Micajah Clark), her father (Zachariah) and three brothers (Thomas, Charles and Andrew) left Southampton on the ship, Glasgow. They landed on Barbados in the West Indies. There they joined a group to settle in South Carolina and established the first permanent Colony in that Province. A few years later the Moormans moved to Mansemond County, VA, in order to be near a Quaker Meeting. The Records of St. Peter's Parish prove that Thomas Moorman was in St. Peter's Parish and a processioner in 1689. It is probable that Sarah and her husband also moved with the Moorman family, as their children are born in Virginia.
