    Notes 

    • (1) Fiske, William, Wyman, "Clarke and Stacy Origins of Three Immigrants to Ipswich, Massachusetts: Simon and Elizabeth (Clarke) Stacy and Her Sister, Susanna (Clarke) Whipple," in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 160 (January 2006), pp. 28-29:

      STEPHEN CLARKE . . . was baptized at Theydon Garnon, Essex, 27 February 1565/6. He married first, say 1588, ELIZABETH _____. He married second at Theydon Garnon 8 December 1607, ELIZABETH REYNOLDS, who was buried at Theydon Garnon 16 February 1608/9 as "Elizabeth wife of Stephen Clarke."

      In late 1588 Joan Deringe of Theydon Gannon, spinster, was indicted for having by "Witchcraftes enchautementes charmes and corceries" bewitched "payles of mylke" belonging to Stephen Clarke "so that his servants, by no art or labour were able to make cheese thereof." She was found not guilty.

      On 1 July 1605 William Archer of Theydon Garnon, yeoman, conveyed to Stephen Clark "a messuage with 2 acres of grounds in Theydon Garnon called Kitterings, abutting on a meadow called Parke Meade, now in occupation of Rich. Roger, N. upon the Kings highway, leading towards the church of Theydon Gardon W., and upon ground called Ballesgarden now in occupation of jn. Fitzwilliam, esq., E. and S."

      The Sessions Rolls for Easter 1610 contain the 14 January 1610 Recognizance of "Thomas Bradley, John Springer, John Dowesett, William Clarke, William Treppes and Stephen Clarke, yeomen, all of Theydon Carnon [sic], for their appearance and keeping the peace towards John Fitswilliams, esq. of Theydon Carnon, and for not burning of houses, Before Sir William Smith, knt."

      No burial record or probate has been found for Stephen. It is of interest that his daughter Elizabeth was married at North Weald Bassett, Essex, while his daughter Susanna was married at St. Andrew by the Wardrobe in London. No record of his other children (William, Thomasin, Rose or Mary) has yet been found, although research is in progress as to the possibility that at least one of them may have also immigrated to New England.
