Based on the fact that Robert Ford was a witness on will below
Clarke, Edward, St. Mary's Co.,
30th Apr., 1713; 24th June, 1714.
To sons Jno., Edward, Clement and dau. Mary Clarke, acknowledgments
made of certain live stock. Wife Mary, extx. and residuary legatee;
she being empowered to sell all hand, viz., 202 A., Turvey, 25 A.,
Houndslow's Addition, but if sd. lands are not sold they are to pass
at decease of wife to 3 sons afsd., son John to be of age at 16 yrs.
and other sons at 18 yrs. If son John go to live at plantation he is
to take his sister Henrietta with him. Test: Robert Ford, John Jones,
James Thompson. 14. 8.
and based on fact that Robert Ford recieved land owned by Edward
Clarke. I would have to agree with Mary Donnelly that the evidence is
very Compelling that Robert Ford did marry Mary Clarke daughter of
Edward Clarke and Mary Kirkley.
How else would he obtain that land.
I have to agree with Bev Tyler.
