  • Notes 
    • FW Clarke (family history)
      Although listed as an Agricultural Labourer, James Clarke owned a large parcel of land (2.919 acres) in Potato Row, Bagshot, now College Ride.

      In 1880 the land was divided into 3 lots and sold by his 4 sons to: Fredick Henry Trevithick, Civil Engineer, of Devon
      J. Corbet - Innkeeper
      T Hockley - Broom maker

      James Clarke was born in Bagshot and may have lived in a cottage on the Poors Allotments below what is known locally a 'Clarke's Hill.' There were at least four families on the Poors Allotments in the the 18th and 19th Centuries, including the Grangers, Clarkes and Coles.

      An uncle of my father (Leonard Thomas Clarke) lost an arm in the Indian Frontier Wars (?) and lived on and worked the Poors Allotments. The terracing can still be seen in the lower lands surrounding Clarke's Hill.

      James, Stephen and Alfred Clarke were all listed as Agricultural Labourers, as were all the other sons, and as one had lost an arm serving in the army there may have been others in the family who also served in the army. It would have been very easy to enlist, living so close to the army camp at Aldershot.
