Additional detail for reference: p. 32, (gen. 9, Ann Clifford).

Comment: Source includes age phrase ("not yet two years old") as of his father Robert Clifton's death on 9 Sep 1517. The implication is that he was more than one year old, but less than two. This gives a range from 9 Sep 1515 to 8 Sep 1516.
