Name of creator
Joseph Clarke, Sr. of Stratford, Connecticut, was a physician who fled to the British Army in 1776, at the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. His wife and children later took refuge in New York where he joined them. In June 1783 he, his wife, their 9 children, and 4 servants boarded the "Bridgwater" en route to Saint John, in what is now New Brunswick.
The Clarke family settled at Maugerville in Sunbury County, and Joseph resumed his medical practice. He was also appointed a judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Joseph Sr. died intestate at Maugerville in 1813 at age 79, leaving an estate with a total value of Ð1,299. His widow, Isabella Elizabeth Alleyne died the same year, aged 71.
Joseph Clarke, Jr., son of Joseph Clarke, Sr., accompanied his family, as a single man, to St. John aboard the "Bridgwater" in June 1783. He settled at Greenwich Hill on Long Reach in the St. John River in Kings County, New Brunswick. Joseph, Jr. died in 1828, at the age of 65, while in New York visiting friends. He left an estate valued at Ð175.
