John Clements
c1740-1831

It is unclear as to when John Clements was born, and therefore the identity of his parents currently remains unclear.

It is most likely that John was the son of John and Catherine Clements of Stuntney (not far from Soham), who appear in the baptism register as the parents of a John Clements in the parish records in 1742.

Alternatively, John may have been the son of Abraham and Elizabeth Clemments of Dullingham near Newmarket - further from Soham than Stuntney.

What is known about John, is that he married Elizabeth Slack and they settled down to have a family of seven children (5 sons, 2 daughters), of which the second daughter ('Edy') died as an infant.

John lived until he was 91 years - a remarkable age for 1831. His daughter Elizabeth also reached this age.
