The Clark Connection to History – Lines Also to Charlemagne and Beyond – Jean Broach Crawford’s Research
Connections back into history can be traced starting with the Marvins. Nathan Marvin was Frances Abigail Marvin’s grandfather; Nathan’s father was Samuel Marvin (1670-1743); Nathan’s grandmother was Sarah Clark, who married Reinold Marvin. Five generations of the Clark (Clerke) family (from Sarah back to George Clerke, 1510-1558), leads to the family connection with the Ferrers. Elizabeth Ferrers was the mother of George Clerke (also known as Clarke). Six generations of Ferrers (also, Ferrars) then connect with the De Verdun family. The mother of William de Ferrers was Elizabeth Isabel De Verdun (1317-1349). Elizabeth De Verdun’s great grandmother was Margery De Lacy; Margery’s mother was Isabel Bigod’s great-grandmother was Juliane De Vere (circa 1116 – 1200).

In a sidebar to tracing this line back to Charlemagne, the bloodline is enhanced by the mother of Elizabeth Isabel De Verdun who was Elizabeth De Clare, granddaughter of Edward I (“Longshanks”), King of England. Back on the trail to Charlemagne, Jean found that Clerke/Clarke ancestor, Juliane De Vere’s mother was Adeliza (Alice) De Clare, daughter of Aleliza De Clermont. Until this time all of the ancestors were English. From the time of the mother of Aleliza De Clermont all the ancestors were French. Aleliza’s mother was a French woman named Margaret De Montdidier (circa 1045 – circa 1110). Margaret’s mother was Alice (Adela) De Roucy; three generations of De Roucy’s trace back to Renaud De Roucy’s wife, Alberade De Lorraine (circa 930 – 973). Alberade’s grandfather was Rainer (Regnier) I, Duke of Lorraine. Ranier was the son of Emengarde, Duchess of the Moselle. Emengarde’s father was Lothaire I, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire; his father was Louis I (“The Pious”), Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and son of Charlemagne (742 – 814).
