Connecticut Genealogies, Vol. II,p. 649 states:
George Clark, immigrant ancestor, was born in England and came to this country in 1637 in the company of Rev. John Davenport and his congregation from counties Kent and Surry, near London.With him came three relatives, James, John, and George Clarke.After about a year in Boston, the party located at New Haven, Connecticut, whence in 1639 they moved to Milford, in that colony.A tract of three acres, purchased for a common, is still free from buildings and has been in the possession of Clarke and his descendents to the present time.Is is now owned by David Nathaniel Clarke, mentioned below.The First Church of Milford, of which George Clarke was a member, was established August 22, 1639, and he was a deacon.He became a man of wealth and prominence in the community.He was a carpenter and builder, as well as a farmer, and doubtless built many of the first houses in the town.He died in June, 1690, and his wife, Mary, also died at Milford.He was a deputy to the general court from Milford.Children:Thomas, mentioned below, Sarah, George, John, Abigail, Elizabeth, Rebecca and Mary.
(II)Thomas, son of George Clarke, was born in Boston in 1637, died in Milford, Connecticut in 1719.He was a farmer and owned more land than any other man in Milford.
Sue's Note:Thomas' birth in 1637 is consistent with a brother of Abigail who was born in 1640 and this family was in New Haven area during the time of Abigail's birth.No other of the immigrant Clarkes had a daughter named Abigail that comes close to these relationships, locations, and dates.
