I'm looking for information on the family of John CLARK & Catherine WINFIELD. John's father was William CLARK & I believe William's wife was Ann GREEN. John CLARK, of the parish of St Werburgh, gardener, and CATHARINE WINFIELD, were married April 26, 1761, at All Saints, Derby. John & Catharine had 6 children, my "original" Clark is Thomas - christened in 1774 in Arnold, Notts. Thomas' brothers & sisters: Catherine, Sarah, Elizabeth, John & Hannah (all born between 1762 & 1773 and all christened in Arnold, Notts). Thomas left England at approximately the age of 20 for the Caribbean Islands. I have Thomas' complete line from that point forward, but nothing on the siblings or the parents.

WILLIAM & HONOUR BURLEY, or their siblings (Notts & Derbys)
William was born in 1791 (died California 1861), and Honour (birth name unknown) was born in 1799 (died California 1871). Their daughter, Elizabeth (born 1832), was one of my paternal great grandmothers; it's possible she had older siblings who remained in the UK when she and her parents emigrated to America.
Elizabeth married Edward Robson, presumably in 1858 (my grandmother, Josephine, was born August 2, 1859). As one of the earliest settlers of Colma, CA, Edward merited a biographical sketch in the History of San Mateo County. The sketch states he and his parents emigrated from Manchester to the US, arriving in 1840, settling in Wisconsin, then traveling via the isthmus to CA, where they landed in San Francisco in July, 1858.I've been told that many Burleys hail from Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire. (I also understand that Burleigh and Burlly are alternative spellings.)
