    Warwick Castle, home of several generations of our ancestors. This family line comes down to Jeremy Clarke, who came to America in 1639 and settled in Newport, RI, as one of the original settlers. He signed the Portsmouth Compact in 1639, along with several of our other ancestors. Jeremy is a direct descendant of King Edward I of England and his wife Eleanor of Castile, through their daughter Joan Plantagenet, who died in 1307.

  • Notes 
    • He was 10th Earl of Warwick.

      From the website of Warwick Castle:
      "His son, Guy (1298-1315) was named as one of the Ordainers, a group of Earls who aimed to impose control over King Edward II and govern the kingdom. Their main complaint against the King was the role and powers he had granted Piers Gaveston, a Gascon knight and the King’s probable lover. By 1312, tensions between the King and the Ordainers had risen, therefore Gaveston surrendered to the Earls under promises that his life would be spared. However, Guy de Beauchamp seized the prisoner and brought him to Warwick Castle. After a perfunctory trial in the original Great Hall, Gaveston was sentenced to death and beheaded in the woods just outside Warwick. This move caused a political catastrophe for Guy and he died a mysterious death just three years later."
