Nathaniel Clarke, Sr., it appears removed to Lyme, Conn., and
lived there for a time, as in a deed to his brother Thomas Clarke,
of Harwich, he styles himself as "of Lyme," in 1726. How long
he remained there is not known ; but there is reason to think that
he left his children by his first marriage in Lyme and that he re-
turned to Harwich, for an original document of the nature of an
agreement between John Dillingham and the three brothers, Thomas,
Scotto and Nathaniel Clarke, made in the year 1735 styles Nathaniel
Clarke as of Harwich, Mass.
