    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Elizabeth Clopton was the widow of William Walker who died 12 Sept. 1718 (St. Peters Parish Reg., New Kent Co., VA.) She was a daughter of William Clopton Gent. who was born in 1655 in County Essex, England. He was a son of Rev. William Clopton of Eastwood Co., Essex, and his wife, Elizabeth Sutcliffe. The Clopton line has been traced back to Edward I, King of England. It has been written that Sir Walter Clopton, one of our ancestors, signed the Magna Carta on 15 June 1215 In this the rights of the subjects are compelled to be respected by the authority and these rights proclaimed are a part of the constitution of every English speaking people. Kentwell Hall was the name of the Manor House of the Clopton Family in England. William Clopton, son of Elizabeth Clopton, must have been in Virginia by 1673 since his marriage to Am Booth, daughter of Robert Booth, occurred about that time. Am Booth was born in 1647 Her father, Robert Booth, was Clerk of York Co., Va. and a member of the House of Burgessess 1653-54. She was formerly the wife of Capt. Thomas Dennett whose will was proved 1 Aug. 1673, by whom she had four children.

      Hello Mr. Harris,

      I have documented my line to Robert Booth. His daughter, Ann, married William Clopton. Their daughter, Elizabeth, married (1) William Walker, their son, William, married Jane Bays (father Peter was a Huguenot/Manakin). Jane and William had a daughter named Lydia who married John Warren Jackson and on down to me. Would you like any of this information? I am always happy to share.

      Do you know if Robert Booth's father came to Jamestown? I notice there is a Robert Booth on that list.

      Sincerely,

      Dee Redkevitch Atlanta, GA Dee Redkevitch [deezee97@mindspring.com]
