1). Planter at Edisto Island, SC. Made his will September 14, 1728. It was probated December 5, 1728. Source Vol. 2, Pg. 42, Probate Court, Charleston, SC, February 25, 1728. Sarah, his wife, as executrix gave an Inventory of his estate. Source Bundle 00 No. 19, Vol. 76 B., pg. 786. Probate Court, Charleston, SC It is possible that his father was Alexander Clarke, but has not been proven. Alexander Clark is represented as having lands on the mainland of South Carolina on the South Edisto River on an early map of the area, published by Edward Crisp in London, England, in 1711 from surveys taken prior to 1704. Alexander received land grants in this province in 1695, but the bounds are not given. An old index in the Charleston Probate Court shows that Alexander Clarke left a will, which was proved March 17, 1718. So far nothing further has been found relating to him, but the fact of his being in the same locality, makes it seem possible that he belonged to the same family, and was possibly the father of Jeremiah Clarke. As Edisto Island was settled by the second colony in 1680, it seems probable that either Alexander Clarke or Jeremiah Clark or possibly both were among this group of early settlers. Jeremiah Clark left a son, James, as one of his executors therefore James was at least 21 years of age at the time his father s will was made. Allowing James to have been born when his father was 22 years old, this would carry the birth of Jeremiah Clark I back to 1685 or earlier. We do not know by which wife his children were born. His will mentions Wife Sarah, equal part of my moveable estate with my daughters and to live upon my plantation. Sons James Clark and Jeremiah Clark, all lands to be equally divided between them. Wife Sarah Clark and sons James and Jeremiah Clark and my daughters Phoebe Clark, Mary Clark and Martha Clark all the moveables belonging to my plantation to be equally divided between the. I give to my grand daughter Elizabeth Sams when she is 18 years old 5000 weight of merchantable rice if she dies before she comes to that age, then the said rice to be equally divided between my wife and children. I give unto my son in law William Binyard sic and to my daughterin law Sarah Fry, 1000 weight of merchantable rice, 500 to each. I likewise appoint my wife, Sarah Clark, and my son, Jaems Clark, Mr. Ralph Bayley and Mr. Wm. Bowers my sole executors. Signed Jeremiah Clark his mark X Witnesses Francis Sullivan Dated 14 Sept. 1728. Proved in Council 5 Dec 1728. Sarah Clark qualified as Executrix, the other Executors renouncing. Appraisers William Bowers Ralph Bayly Ichabod Winbourn Paul Hamilton George Worton The only other mention found of Jeremiah Clark I is the following May 7, 1724. Indenture between Jeremiah Clark of Colleton County, planter, and Timothy Hendricks of same place, planter, 250 acres, being part of tract purchased by SD. Jeremiah Clark of Captain William Meggott.
