2108 John Clark.360,494 b. London, England in ~1573-1576. d. Jamestown, VA in 1623.

The date of birth for John Clark is from two depositions that he made to Spanish authorities while he was a captive in Havana and Madrid. The text of these dispositions have been published in the American Historical Review. 565 John Clark was a master's mate and pilot on English sailing vessels. According to his depositions, he began sailing in about 1603 and was a pilot by 1607. He was in Malaga in 1609 and in March of 1611, made his first voyage to America with Sir Thomas Dale, coming to the English Colony of Jamestown.

He was in Jamestown for several months when a Spanish ship was caught by the English making observations of the colony. Three of the Spanish leaders left the ship and were made captive by the Englsh; John Clark went aboard the ship to pilot it into Jamestown harbor, but was made captive by the Spanish crew when they discovered that their leaders were being held by the English. He was transported first to Havana where he was questioned, and later was taken to Spain, where authorities hoped that he would provide useful information about the Englsih settlememts in Virginia.

He was ultimately released by the Spanish in exchange for the three Spansih captives who were held in England, however he was in captivity for four years until 1616 before he was finally released. The Spanish authorities ordered that he should be treated well and it appears that he was, and had contact him other Englishmen during the period.

After his release, he made another voyage to Jamestown in 1619, and was employed as the pilot and mate of the ship Mayflower on the historic voyage of 1620. He was made freeman of the Virginia Colony in 1622 and was granted land there in 1623 when he emigrated permanently. He died shortly after his arrival in 1623. Also see documents of his capitivity published by the Massachusetts Historical Society.566

2110 William Ring.494 d. in ~1620-1629. Resided in Pettistree, Suffolk, England.

William and Mary Ring were living in Ufford, Suffolk, England in 1603 where their daughter was baptized. They disappear from the area after this and the next record of them is as part of the Pilgrim congregation at Leyden, Holland in 1614 which centered around pastor John Robinson. William Ring, called a "say-weaver" became a burgher of Leyden in 1619. The Ring family may have been passenger aboard the ship "Speedwell", a small and leaky ship which attempted to accompany the Mayflower in 1620, but because of its leaky condition was forced to turn back to England. Many of the passengers of the Speedwell returned to Leyden, as did the Ring family where William Ring died in sometime between 1620 and 1629.

He m. Mary Durrant494, on May 21, 1601 in Ufford, Suffolk, England.

iii. Andrew494 (~1618-1693)

2111 Mary Durrant.494 b. about 1589. d. Plymouth, MA in July 1631.

Many of the former passengers of the Speedwell finally came to New England in 1629 on the second ship called "Mayflower" with thirty-five other passengers, and, it is likely that the widow Mary Ring came then with her children. She died at Plymouth shortly thereafter in 1631. Her will had the following injunction, "that Andrew my son be left with my son Stephen Deane; and doe require of my son Deane to help him forward in knowledge and fear of God, not to opress him by any burthens but to tender him as he will answer to God. My overseers of my will I institute and make my loving friends Samuel Fuller and Thomas Blossom..." Both of these men had been in Leyden with the Ring family. Here estate included a number of books, brass and pewter objects, cattle, corn, timber, a silver whistle, etc.
