Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Marriage Date (Samuel and Elizabeth): This database uses 4 May 1680. Plantagenet Ancestry gives a marriage date of 4 May 1684. However, this is likely a typo, as it disagrees will all of the other listed sources. [book-plantagenet-ancestry-2004]

Marriage Location (Samuel and Elizabeth): This database uses Leicestershire, England. The Quaker record for their marriage (which is from the Leicester Monthly Meeting) implies it was in Claxton, England, more than 100 miles away. This needs more research. [religious-registry-quaker-leicester-rg6-1397-66]

SPELLING

Surname: This database uses Clator. Plantagenet Ancestry uses the surname Claytor. [book-plantagenet-ancestry-2004]

FOLLOWUP

She may have been born in 1655.

Her father was William Clator, who lived in Elton, Nottinghamshare, England. He was fined and imprisoned multiple times around 1658 for being a member of the Friends [a Quaker]. [book-chester-and-delaware-pa-v1-1904]

Samuel Levis and Elizabeth Clator may have married in Leicestershire, England.

This quote is from A Collection of the Sufferings of the People Called Quakers, Volume 1, page 552: "[In 1658] William Claytor, of Elton, was subpaena'd at the Suit of Dove Williamson, a Priest there, into the Exchequer at London, where he personally appeared, but, not employing an Attorney, was sent to the Fleet, as if he had not appeared, and lay there two Years: During which Time, the Priest and his Servants made Spoil of his Goods at Home, carrying off an whole Load of his Corn together. He was afterward sued by the said Priest in the Court of Common-Pleas, and a Verdict was obtained against him for 20£. Upon that Verdict, Execution was awarded, and his Goods taken from him to the Value of 42£. He was also detained in Prison three Years and a Quarter."

Another quote from A Collection of the Sufferings of the People Called Quakers, Volume 1, on the next page (553): "[In 1670] It happened that William Claytor, of Elton, and John Barker, of Bingham, were together at a Friends House, where were no others but the Family: One Chamberlain, an Informer, came in, and asked William some usual familiar Questions, to which he gave him proper Answers. The Informer goes to Justice Whaley, and tells him, There was a Meeting, and that William Claytor Spoke: Upon which the Justice fined him 20£ for Preaching, and caused Distress to be made on his Goods, which amounted but to 15£ so they afterward seized some Sheep of his, to the Value of 4£ more. And from John Barker they also took Goods worth 12£."
