Richard CLARKE Angleterre Terre-Neuve Capturé. pillé par pêcheurs français, puis Angleterre



There are alternative histories of Adam’s Cove and some early Clarkes around Crockers Cove maybe the early locale she intended. An Adam Clarke mentioned in the Carbonear Plantation records may be a grandson of the first Clarke there.

Early settlers at Adam’s Cove included James Adams, Robert Evans and George Hudson.

In Harbour Grace

The first Clarke I came across was Frederica Clarke who married Joseph Noel Jr.

Later the family in Harbour Grace connected to the Noseworthys.


The Clarke name is also appearing on this map of Crockers Cove:’sCoveImages/crockerscovemap.htm
