Down / Re: Samuel Clarke....Still not found His Death

Thank you for that, it looks increasingly unlikely that this Samuel Clarke is our man.....I still believe that his parents were Bernard Clarke and Sarah Allan.

The other people buried in the plot are Henry Clarke d 1887 aged 64, Eliza Ann Clarke d 1899 aged 70, and a Mrs. Mary Kennedy d 1880 aged 25......I am guessing that the two older one's are Samuel James Clarke's parents, so he is probably not our man.

I did wonder if the Samuel Clarke, that died in 1919 at Trillick Street, Belfast, could be "our" Samuel.....I notice that he was given as married, which our Samuel would presumably still be, even though he tried to kill Susanna, and she was in Scotland......I assume that divorce was virtually unheard of back then, although there was a rumour in the family that when he came out of jail, he re-married, and had another family, but I have no evidence of this.....how would I find out, if indeed it is possible at all, who this Samuel was married too ?

Thank you for that, we believe that he is the Clarke born Downpatrick on 22nd June 1865, to parents Bernard Clarke and Sarah Allan......Samuel and Susanna's first child was Samuel ALLAN Clarke, born at Murlough Lower, Dundrum, in 1897.......Their second child was Hugh Joseph Clarke, born Ardrossan, Scotland in 1900, after Susanna had fled there after the serious assault on her, by Samuel at Dundrum....Hugh Joseph Clarke is my wife's grandfather.....https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=2533&h=2579730&ssrc=pt&tid=29111460&pid=12135968592&usePUB=true

Mmmhhh.......the plot thickens....on Sussana's death certificate, in 1928, it says that she was married to Robert Sanders, which is correct, it also says that her first husband was JAMES Clarke, which has always puzzled me.......

Thanks for that.....it has certainly got me thinking.....we always believed that Samuel's parents were Bernard Clarke and Sarah Allan, although we could never prove it......this throws a whole new light on things.....his wife Susanna fled to Scotland about 1900 after he tried to kill her, for which he was jailed at Belfast assize......he only got 6 months, and was never heard of again.

So, what DID happen to the elusive Samuel Clarke ?? got lot's of posts on here about him, but don't know how to link to them, so apologies.......born 1865, Banbridge, Co. Down, married 1896, to Susannah McDowell, Kilmegan parish, went to jail in 1899/1900.....after that nothing, possible dead by 1912 as she re-married as a widow in Scotland.....been looking for almost 10 years now.
