  Visitation shows that Elizabeth m. _ Clarke but, though BLGI1912 does show an Elizabeth in this generation (with no marriage shown for her), it also shows an Elizabeth in the next generation who married a Clarke. We presume that Visitation was wrong in showing this Elizabeth as having m. _ Clarke.
