Clack, J.


I have not been able to identify J Clack in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • Thank you Norma. If you have the correct John Clack, he was baptised on 5 August 1810 at Alvescot, Oxfordshire. His parents were Robert and Margaret. The 1841 and 1851 census returns record him as a dealer, and in 1871 as a retired farmer. His probate record describes him as a hay dealer.
    John married Rosanna Taylor (1808-1893) on 4 October 1837 at St Mary Magdalene, Oxford.
    It would appear likely that he was engaged as a preacher by his home circuit for a year after which he returned to work outside the church.

  • This might be a “longshot”, but my GG-Grandfather, Rev. William Clack, had a brother named John Clack who was born in 1810. Their family lived near Alvescot (Oxfordshire). The following is from my GG-Grandfather’s Autobiography: ” (John) was soon converted and became a Primitive Methodist Preacher, of no great ability as a preacher, but a good, honest Christian pastor.” John Clack married in 1837 and later family letters indicate that he became a cab driver/business owner.
