Generation No. 5

16. John C. (Christopher) Clark32, born July 18, 1665 in Kent, England;
died 1735 in King and Queen County, VA. He was the son of 32. John Clark
and 33. Mary Bird. He married 17. Elizabeth Lumpkin 1680 in King and Queen
County, VA.
17. Elizabeth Lumpkin32, born 1667 in Middlesex County, VA; died 1734 in
King and Queen County, VA. She was the daughter of 34. Captain John Jacob
Lumpkin and 35. Martha Unknown.

Notes for John C. (Christopher) Clark:
Our Families by Larry Shuck - page 439

James Clarke of Augusta County, Va was previously listed as a son of John
Clarke of King and Queen County, VA and a great grandson of John Clarke
from England, who settled in Virginia. This is now thought to be
incorrect...the John Clark from ENGLAND and John Clarke from King and Queen
County are most likely the same person.

There are some indications that Jonathan Clarke of King and Queen County was
related to James Clarke of Augusta Co Va and to Christopher Clarke of
Albermarle Co Va. One source suggest that John Clark who transported Peter
Massie of New Kent 7 Nov 1670 may have been the ancestor of Christopher
Clarke of Albermarle Co Va. There was a Christopher and Rebecca Clark who
lived near Jamestown 1679 and some believe they were the parents of John and
Christopher Clark of Albermarle Co, but this is not proven. William Hancock
Clark, of the Gen. William Clark line, said that George Rogers Clark was a
cousin of Elizabeth Anthony of the Christopher Clark line

It is also suggested that Jonathan Clark of King and Queen County may have
been the son of John Clark and a brother to Christopher Clark. It is also
said in the History of Rockbridge County that Ann DUNLAP daughter of James
Clark of Augusta County was a cousin of General George Rogers Clark. ( I
agree with this theory. There is a letter, written to Ann Clark Dunlap by
George Rogers Clark in which he addresses her as my Dear Cousin) This
connecting link may be John Clarke of King and Queen County. The following
connection between these Clarks is speculative, but some records do exist to
support this speculation

John Clark immigrated from ENGLAND to King and Queen County before 1725.
Christopher Clark and wife, Rebecca, lived near Jamestown in1679, poss.
transported 7 Nov 1670 Peter Massie of New Kent

One source says John C (Christopher?) Clark after arriving married a
red-headed Scoth girl, located in King and Queen County aft 1700 and that he
was the father of Jonathan Clark born 1698

Before Amanda by Thomas Nathan Clark - page 2

John Christopher Clark was born about 1662 died after 1735, married c 1695
Elizabeth Lumpkin, daughter of Capt John Lumpkin of the French and Indian
Wars. He was granted land in Drysdale Parish, King and Queen County 1691. He
was also granted land in Hanover and Caroline Counties. John and Elizabeth
(Lumpkin) Clark are thought to be the couple from whom Jonathan Clark
1698-1734, who married Elizabeth Wilson and received land grants in Caroline
and Albermarle Counties, descends. Jonathan Clark and Elizabeth Wilson Clark
were the grandparents of George Rogers Clark. They are also thought to be
the parents of James Clark 1704-1778, who married Elizabeth Summers and
settled in Augusta County, Va. They are the known pioneers of this book.

Begining with James Clark the line leaves family tradition and starts with
proven facts
