Clare Family

Isaac Oram 1745-1802 married Elizabeth Clare 1747-1795. Both families lived in Ditcheat, Somerset.

  • Elizabeth’s parents were Arthur Clare 1719-1794 and Elizabeth (probably nee Still) 1712-1787. It seems as if Elizabeth Clare had one sibling John.

  • No definite DNA links have been found with Ancestry members but …
    • In 2019 contact was made with DNA match SG in Idaho. His tree includes the Chinnock family living in Ditcheat at the same time as the Clares.  There is a marriage Betty [or Elizabeth?] Clare and Robert Chinnock in Ditcheat in 1747. This would make them of the same generation as Arthur Clare in our tree and Leonard Chinnock in SG’s tree.
