Excerpt from James Freeman Clarke, 1892: Autobiography, Diary and Correspondence
My father, Samuel Clarke, was an only child. His fa ther, Samuel Clarke, had one sister (hepzibah Clarke, afterward Mrs. Swan), but no brother. Both were born in Boston. My great-grandfather, Barnabas Clarke, was born in Harwich, on Cape Cod, and was for some years a shipmaster. Afterward he became a merchant in Boston, marrying Hepzibah Barrett in 1748.
Barnabas Clarke was a lineal descendant of Thomas Clarke, who is reported, by what Thacher calls a well received tradition in Plymouth, to have been the mate of the Mayﬂower, and the first who landed on Clarke's Island in Plymouth harbor. If so, he returned to England with the vessel, for he came over as a settler in the Anne, in July, 1623. He lived in Plymouth, Har wich, and Boston. He died in Plymouth, aged ninety eight, in the year 1697, and his grave and gravestone may be seen on the summit of Burying-ground Hill.
