    Notes 
    • . Ann18 Clopton, of New Kent (Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham) was born July 3, 1712 in New Kent County, Virginia10. She married Benjamin Bradley, of Charles City, son of Joseph Bradley, of Charles City County, Virginia. He was born 1708 in Charles City County, Virginia, and died 1768.
      No proof has been found that Ann Clopton married anyone or had any children. The theory of a possible Bradley-Clopton connection has been carefully researched by Frank Bradley, the former Genealogical Specialist, New York Public Library. After extensive research on the Bradley Family, it is his opinion that a very strong case can be made supporting this marriage based on several points:
      1. Walter Clopton (her father) was named guardian of Jesse, Susannah & Elizabeth Bradley; 2. Saint Peter's Parish Registry lists the children of Benjamin and Ann Bradley; 3. the similarity of given names of the children of Walter Clopton & Benjamin Bradley; 4. Bradleys married into the Clopton and Jarratt families; and, 5. The Rev. Devereux Jarratt (1733-1801) wrote "my uncle was the first who had that name (Devereux) in Virginia." The Rev. Devereux may have been named after Devereux Clopton, his "Clopton" Uncle, or he may have been speaking of Devereux Jarratt, his "Jarratt" uncle. See "Walking the Primrose Path," Volume I, for more on the Devereux family.

      14 i. James19 Bradley, of Possom Run.
      + 15 ii. Walter Bradley, of Long Bridge.
      16 iii. Elizabeth Bradley.
