ROBERT1 CLEMENT [or CLEMENCE], of Haverhill; b. ab. 1590. He came from Eng., was in Hv. in 1642, rep. 1647-53. He d. Sep. 29, 1658[Hv]; will Sep. 6, Oct. 11, 1658, a wife living. In settling the estate of his bro. John, the court, May 10, 1660, allowed "his charges for the voyage to England and Ireland in taking over his brother John Clements' wife and children." They do not appear to have returned. [ref 36:95,894]

ROBERT1 CLEMENTS (Richard of Cosby, Robert of Croft, Richard of Croft), baptised at Cosby, Leicestershire, England, 14 Dec. 1595, died at Haverhill, Mass., 29 Sept. 1658. He married first, before 1615, Lydia (___), who was buried at Ansley, Warwickshire, 12 Mar. 1642, and secondly, before 1657, Judith (___), who married after his death, John Whitney(*) of Watertown, Mass., and died in 1669. Robert Clements probably grew to manhood in the parish of Cosby, receiving an education which developed a mind unusual for the times. Although the records show little of him in youth, it cannot be doubted that the great formative influences of the period profoundly affected him. Having obtained money for the new venture to the colonies by the sale of his Witherley lands, Robert Clements, with his eldest son Job, his second son John, his youngest son Robert and his daughters, Sarah and Lydia Clements, sailed for America. His sons Abraham and Daniel Clements, aged about twenty and eighteen, respectively, he left behind in England, they being pledged to the army of the Commonwealth. His daughter Mary, aged about five years, he left in Coventry, England, presumably with relatives, until such a time as she should be old enough to stand the hardships of the new life. It is unfortunate that the sailing list of the vessel on which they came has never been preserved, but the tradition that Robert came on his own boat has been handed down the succeeding generations of his descendants to the present time. There is every reason to believe that Tristram Coffin, who later became Governor of Nantucket, came in the same boat with Robert Clements. Joshua Coffin, the genealogist and antiquary of Newburyport, wrote in a letter, that once when digging in the old papers of Essex County, he came upon an ancient one which stated that Robert Clements and Tristram Coffin came from England together. Allen Coffin, in his "Life of Tristram Coffin" (Nantucket, 1881,) remarks that it is generally conceded that "Tristram came in the ship with Robert Clements, who settled at Haverhill." After landing at Salisbury at the mouth of the Merrimac River, Robert Clements and Tristram Coffin went up the river to Penntucket, where Rev. John Ward, Hugh Sheratt and others had preceded them. This was probably early in the fall of 1642. Shortly after their arrival they joined with the others in purchasing land from the Indians, Passaquo and Saggahew, who sold to them, with the consent of their Sachem, Passaconoway, the land on which the city of Haverhill now stands. When Spring came again to New England, Robert Clements was one of those who cleared a portion of his land and engaged in "ye planting of ye corn." In 1645, his name appears on a list of the thirty-two landholders at Haverhill, his sons, Job and John Clements, being likewise numbered. From the time of his arrival, Robert Clements was a valuable man in the community. He supplied the first need of the town by building a grist mill. His son Robert, as he grew towards manhood, became a cooper; his son Job had already learned the tanner's trade. His second son, John Clements, appears to have depended on the land alone and this may have been one reason for John's return to England, later on. His daughters married men of importance in the new community. In November 1645, "Robert Clements and Tristram Coffin of Haverhill" were made Freemen. In 1647, Robert Clements was made a "commissioner to end causes" in Haverhill. This office was equivalent to the modern one of Justice of the Peace. He served as deputy to the General Court in 1647 and following years until 1654, when he was succeeded by his son Lieut. John Clements. In 1648 he was an associate Judge for the County of Norfolk. He served as an associate Judge until 1654. In 1649, he was appointed Commissioner to lay out County roads; to set off public lands; to fix their limits. 15 June 1650, he was given the power to administer the Oath of fidelity at Haverhill. Robert Clements was twice licensed by the Norfolk County Court to sell wine in Hampton and Haverhill, a privilege in those days only extended to the better class of citizens. As marriage by a magistrate was the only legal form in the early days of the Massachusetts colonies, he doubtless performed many a ceremony besides that which united his daughter Mary to Capt. John Osgood of Andover. During the sixteen years of his residence in Massachusetts, he continued to manage his property in England and to receive the rents from it. There is no record that he ever returned to his native land but he may have made a brief visit there. It is not known just when he re-married but 15 Apr. 1657, his wife Judith signs a deed with him (Coffin mss., Essex Institute, Salem, Mass). Robert Clements died at Haverhill, 29 Sept. 1658. His will was dated only twenty-three days before his death and is evidence that some illness seized him unexpectedly and that he feared his life was ending. Children born in England: Job, Lydia, John, Abraham, Daniel, Sarah, Robert, Mary. [ref 88:12]

Notes for Lydia* DRUMMER

possibly daughter of Robert DRUMMER
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Much research has failed to disclose anything in regard to the parentage of Lydia, the first wife of Robert Clements, and the mother of all of his children. That her memory was cherished is evidenced by the fact that each of her children named a daughter for her. Robert Clements buried her at Ansley on 12 Mar. 1642. [ref 88:19]

Percival Wood Clement, Gov. of Vermont 1919-21 erected a bronze tablet set in the wall of the Ansley church: In Memory of | Lydia Clements | Buried in this churchyard March 12, 1642. | The wife of Robert Clements who emigrated to | New England 1642. | And became one of the founders of | Haverhill, Massachusetts.
