    Notes 
    • Walter17 Clopton, The Elder, of "Callowell" (William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham)1 was born Abt. 1687 in New Kent County, Virginia, and died Aft. June 26, 1758 in New Kent County, Virginia2. He married Mary Jarratt September 4, 1711 in St. Peter's Parish Church, New Kent County, Virginia3, daughter of Robert Jarratt and Mary.
      There are many troubling elements regarding the listing of the children currently found in both the Lucy Erwin and Gene Clopton, Clopton genealogies. The Erwin book did not list Elizabeth or Richard. Gene Clopton notes the Parish Registry is mutilated, and Richard is listed as Richard son of Walter and Mary------, and concludes Richard "must be "Clopton" as no other Walter and Mary is known in St. Peter's Parish at the time." The registry notes the birth or baptism of Anne, a son, Mary, Walter, and Rob(ert). No proof has been offered that Walter (born 1720, died in infancy). Cordelia Belle Clopton, lists the children as Walter, Mary, Robert, Deve(reaux), Naomi, Margaret, and Anne. There is a strong belief that at least some of the children may belong to another Clopton male. There are a number of Clopton adults of this period who have not yet been connected with a family.

      + 2 i. Ann18 Clopton, of New Kent, born July 3, 1712 in New Kent County, Virginia.
      + 3 ii. William Clopton, Am. Rev., of New Kent, born November 19, 1714 in New Kent County, Virginia; died 1785.

      6 v. Walter Clopton, I, of Virginia, born March 24, 1719/205; died Abt. 1721.
