1575 - 1639
|Children||Thomas, Anne, Jane, Elizabeth, Dorothy, Maria|
Clemens was born in 1575, the daughter of Thomas, and baptised in Youlgreave on 30th August (1). She had an elder sister Katherine (2), her only known sibling.
She married Francis Byrd in Youlgreave on 16th June 1601 (3). Their first child, and only son, Thomas was born the following year (4). Next was eldest daughter Anne in 1604 (5), then Jane in 1608 (6), Elizabeth in 1610 (7), Dorothy in 1613 (8), and finally Maria in 1616 (9). Incredibly for the times, all of their children survived to adulthood.
Nothing is known of where in the parish they lived, or Francis's occupation or status, until 1623 when their daughter Anne was married, and in her marriage settlement Francis is described as being a yeoman and living in Youlgreave itself (10).
Clemens died in February 1639 (11), and was buried in the chancel in Youlgreave church (12). She was survived by her husband for another 17 years (13).
