Clark Bible

This Bible was submitted by Ellen Nelson Hodge.

"This is not my family line but rather an antique that was given as a gift to my father-in-law many years ago. As it contains precious accounts of the Clark family, I wanted it to be available for those researchers."

My name is Henry Ingram and I live in Scotland and
have been researching family history for over
20 years. I noticed your letter in Roots Web missing
links vol 5 no 41 re: Family Bible.

Like you, they are not related to me but I love
searching anything that arises. Being in possession
of the 1881 census discs for the UK I thought that for
curiosity sake I would look them up.

I found the following 1881 Census At 10 Gloster Place
Brighton Sussex England:

Elizabeth C Clark head proprietress of ladies school
unm age 30 born Brighton
Isabella Clark sister teacher at school unm age 20
born Brighton
Sarah A Coombes servant unm age 21 born Hadlow Kent

I then found the following which was a little strange
as the father was Joseph not Hugh Clark:

1881 Census At 19 Bond St Brighton Sussex England
Joseph Clark head draper age 62 born Scotland
Margaret Clark wife age 60 born Scotland
Mary H Clark daughter unm age 28 born Brighton
Margaret B Clark daughter unm 25 born Brighton
Jane N Clark daughter unm age 23 born Brighton
Sinclair A Sinlain serv ass draper unm 83 born
Archibald Mke.... serv ass draper unm age 23 born

I do not know if you had this info. If not, I hope it
helps you trace any descendents. If you have any UK
ancestors, drop me a note and I will see if I can
