About William Clarke

From The Book of Lockes: There were several William Clarkes in and about Boston before 1640, and it is not possible to state with certainty at what time the father of Mary, who m. William Locke emmigrated. From his residing at Watertown, and his connection with several persons who came over in 1635, I have supposed that he was the William Clarke who came in the " Plaine Joan," and whose name was registered in London, May 15, 1635, "aged 27," and that his wife Margeret or Margary, was the Margaret Clarke who was registered as a passenger in the "Primrose," July 15, 1635, a. 21," with her son "William, aged 1 year," and so I stated in a communicntion published in the New Eng. Historic-Genealogical Register, Vol. 5, p. 248.
