clarke genealogy: third generation

9. THOMAS3 CLARKE (John2, John1). He was born 1 November 1570 in Westhorpe, Suffolk, England, and baptized 3 November 1570 in Westhorpe, Suffolk, England. He died 29 July 1627 in Westhorpe, Suffolk, England, and was buried 30 July 1627 in Westhorpe, Suffolk, England. Residence: Westhorpe, Suffolk, England.

Thomas Clarke may have taken his father's lands in Westhorpe as he seems to have resided at that place when his children were born, while his brothers John, Carew and Christopher took their father's lands in Finningham as is seen in the two subsidies levied at Finningham in 1596/7.
