The timing looks good for John Claxon/Clackson in Virginia in 1619, 1621,
to be the same person as Jno. CLAXTON who left a will in York County in 1659.

Could it be that this John Claxon/Clackson in Virginia in 1619, 1621, and
is the same person as Jno. CLAXTON who left a will in York County in 1659?
