Notes "The 1st Clifford in America was George Clifford of the parish of Arnold in Nottingham. It is a family tradition and claim from the earliest times that he is a direct descendant of the Lords of Skipton and therefore an indirect relative of the current Lord Cliffords. There are no records of George Clifford in Arnold. In 1643 he settled in Boston and became a church member, official drummer-workman, and in 1644 he was a member the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company."185
