Mary was born in England, probably in the Sprauston, Norfolk area. Her family name might have been Woodmansey. She married John Cutler in England and they had seven children by 1637. It is claimed that they were Puritans and were persecuted to the extent that they were forced to leave England. Early in 1637 they emigrated to New England, settling in Hingham, Massachusetts in June. Her husband John died in February of 1638, and she was left destitute. A relative of her husband, Deacon Robert Cutler of Charlestown took some of her older sons to raise.

After being a widow for twelve years, she married, as his second wife, Thomas Hewett of Hingham. Hewett died in 1670 and some of John's sons went to court to recover some of the land that had belonged to their father. They must have been successful, for later that year they sold some of that same land. Mary died on December 12, 1681 in Reading. The record reads: "Mary Hervet, mother of Thomas Cutler"

Joanna Strutt was the daughter of John and Catherine Strutt of Glemsford, Suffolk, England, the town in which she was probably born. On September 22, 1560, she married John Belgrave at Glemsford, at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin. After the marriage, they settled in Leverington, in Cambridgeshire, where John was a yeoman, or farmer. They had nine children at Leverington. Joanna must have died of complications following the birth of her last child, Barbara, who was baptised June 27, 1577. Joanna and her daughter were buried in the churchyard of St Leonard's Church in Leverington, Joanna on August 14 of that year, and her daughter Barbara on September 17.

Arien Allertsen Roosa was from Herwijnen, Gelderland, Netherlands. He was the son of Albert Heymans Roosa and Wyntje Ariens de Jongh. Arien had four brothers, Heiman, Jan, Aert, and Guert (died young), and five sisters, Eyke, Jannetje, Neeltie, Marritje, and Annetje.

On 16 April 1660, he and his family set sail for New Netherland aboard de Bonte Koe. They settled in Wildwyck (later Kingston, Ulster, New York). Three years later, in 1663, the village was attacked by Native Americans and Arien's eldest sister and another of the Roosa children were taken prisoners. Nevertheless, Arien and his brother, Jan, ventured out to work in the fields without permission and were caught and fined by the Schout (sheriff). Arien was still a minor at that point.

New Netherland was taken over by the English and tensions ran high between the English soldiers and the Dutch burghers throughout the colony. In 1664, Arien, his father, and Ariaen Huybertsen got into a fight with the English guard over a canoe that belonged to the Roosas. Neither party could speak the other's language very well and the conflict became physical. In 1665, Arien's father was summoned to court and many residents thought he would be arrested. A crowd, including Arien, assembled but the situation ended peacefully. Arien told the court that he was on his way to the minister with a message, saw something going on at the guardhouse, stopped briefly, and then continued his errand. In 1667, the Esopus mutiny took place as reaction to the abuses of the English commander at the Esopus, Captain Brodhead. Arien and his father were later charged as being among the key players in the mutiny. The governor banished the two Roosas and the others for their part but later reversed the sentences.

Arien married Maria Everts Pels. Maria was the daughter of Evert Everts Pels and Jannetje Sijmons and the sister of at least two brothers, Evert and Symen, and at least two sisters, Rabecca and Elisabet.

Arie and Maria had:

1. Aldert Roosa, married Petronella van Etten (the daughter of Jacob Jansen van Etten and Annetje Adriaens-see Van Etten family) 21 Jun 1696 in Kingston, Ulster, New York.[1]

ROBERT CLEMENTS was baptized at Cosby, Leicestershire, England, 14 December 1595. He was the son of Richard Clements (1570-1617) and Agnes  (Alice) Fellows (1572-1619.) He married (1) *Lydia Drummer before 1615, who was buried at Ansley, Warwickshire, 12 Mar 1642, and (2) before 1657, Judith, who married after his death, John Whitney of Watertown, Mass, and died in 1669.

Robert Clements probably grew to manhood in the parish of Cosby, receiving an education which developed a mind usual for the times. Although the records show little of him in youth, it cannot be doubted that the great formative influences of the period profoundly affected him.

In 1617, his father, Richard Clements, died and on the 20 October of that year, Robert Clements, then aged 23 years, was granted administration of his estate. (Act Book, Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 1615-1616, Fol: 133.) Unfortunately the papers relating to Richard Clements' estate are lost, only the record of the Commission to administrator being preserved. In this same year, 1617, Robert Clements paid 60 pounds for land in Huncote, where he lived for a number of years. Huncote is the parish of Narborouh, Leicestershire, and near Croft, Leire, Sutton, and Brouhton Astley. At all of these places he had relatives living.

In 1619, his mother Agnes, died and the administration of her estate was granted at Leicester, on 7 August 1619, to William Fellowes of Endery (Act Book, co. Leiester, 1604-1634.) William Fellowes was evidently her eldest son by a former marriage. In the record of the Commission she is called "Agnes Clements of Huncote." She was undoubtedly living with her son, Robert Clements, at the time of her decease.

It is evident from the document "Court of Requests, Miscellaneous Books 134, no folio, Clement v. Dowell," that Robert Clement removed from Huncote to Ansley between 3 April 1620 and 22 November 1624. No record of the purchase of the land has been found, and while it is possible that the land at Ansley was a part of his inheritance from his father, it probably was his wife's portion, as his sons of age joined in its sale. Ansley is a small market town in the northern part of Warwickshire, five miles from Nuneaton, four from Atherstone, and ten from Coventry. He lived in Ansley, Warwickshire, England in about 1624.

In 1634, a Robert Clements purchased land at Broughton and from the fact that his relatives were connected with that parish it seems probably that he was the man.

Robert's wife, Lydia, died and was buried in Ansley. (Ansley was owned by the very famous Lady Godiva. The parish church where the family would have worshipped was St. Laurence, begun in the 12h century. It now houses stunning stained glass windows by artist Karl Parsons.) Within two months Robert sold his land in Witherly and was on his way to America. Robert Clement (at age 47) arrived from England at Salisbury, Massachusetts, aboard his own ship the "Clement and Job" in 1642, and then moved on to Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, in 1643. Robert was left with eight children, the youngest of which, Mary, 5, was left with relatives in Coventry, Warwickshire, England. She would rejoin her family in America later, at age 15. Records of her marriage here exist, as well as for her witchcraft trial in 1695 which resulted in a three-month jail sentence.

Financial gain could not have been Robert Clements' reason for immigrating to New England. He was well established in England, and held his property there throughout his life in the colonies (an unusual proceeding.) The death of his wife, Lydia, in 1642, may have been the final thing that made him make the move. (Source: Robert Clements Ancestors and descendants, 18.)

Sons Abraham and Daniel formed important families in Ireland and their descendants have always retained the spelling of Clements.

He son Job was the first of the Clements to leave England. In 1639 he was in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The rest of the children came with their father in 1643: Lydia, John, Sarah, Mary, and *Robert.

He was among the first settlers of Haverhill, Massachusetts, 1643. He was a tanner and pioneer of Haverhill, Massachusetts, and Clements Island.  He was influential and wealthy in that community, and the owner of the first grist mill. He was one of the five to take the deed of the town from the Passagut and Saggahew Indians in 1642:

"KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS-- That wee, Pssaquo and Saggahew with ye consent of Passaconoway, have sold unto ye inhabitants of pentuckett, all ye lands we have in Pentuckett: that is eight myles in length from ye little Rivver in Pentuckett westward: six myles in length from ye aforesaid Rivver northward: and six myles in length from ye aforesaid Rivver eastward, with ye Ileand and ye Rivver that ye ileand stand in as far in length as ye land lyes by as formerly espressed; that is, fourteen myles in length: And wee, ye said Passaquo and Saggahew, with, ye consent of Passaconnaway, have sold unto ye said inhabitants all ye riht that wee, or any other of us have in ye said ground and Ileand and river: nd we warrant it against all or any other Indians whatsoever, unto ye said Inhabitants of pentuckett: and to their heires and assignes forever:

Dated ye fifteenth day of November, Ann. Dom. 1642

Witness, our hands and seales to the bargayne of sale ye day and year above written (in ye presents of us) wee ye said passaquo and SaggeHew have received in hand, for & in consideration of ye same, three pounds & ten shillings.

He was the first Deputy of Haverhill to the General Court (1647-1653); he held offices of Associate Judge and County Commissioner. He was made a freeman in 1645. Robert Clements was early appointed to give the oath of fidelity to the inhabitants of Haverhill. He was recorded as being "a man of rare integrity and superior talents." He must have been an innkeeper in 1653, when he was given permission by the Salisbury court to sell wine in Haverhill. He owned the first grist mill built in Haverhill.

He eventually came to own an island in the Merrimack River that is still known as Clements Island. Robert Clements for a long time occupied a prominent position in the town. Several generations lived there.  (Source: The History of Haverhill, Massachusetts, by George W. Chase, 48-49.)

Of interest is the story of Robert Clements' son, John Clements.  Sometime after 1556 John Clements returned to England. It does not seem probable that he went with the intention of staying there, as he left his wife and four little daughters in New England, but he later made up his mind to remain and joined his brothers, Abraham and Daniel, in Ireland. Consequently he wrote to his youngest brother, Robert, and desired him to come over to England as an escort to the family he had left behind, and offered as an inducement that if he would come and stop that his brethren would do well by him. Robert Clements, Jr., was about twenty-four and had himself a wife and three children; he concluded to accept John's offer and with both families set sail for England in the spring of 1658.

On the voyage over, the ship was captured by the Spaniards, and they were all taken captive into Spain. With the exception of one of John's daughters, all escaped and finally reached London, going from there to Ireland.

In the spring of 1659, Robert, Jr.  returned to New England with his family. His father had died the September preceding and while leaving to John a share in the English property with his other sons, Abraham and Daniel, he left to Robert only £20 of the rent of that property, and Robert may have concluded that New England promised him more than Old England.

Sometime, before July 1659, John Clements with his wife and daughters, excepting the one left "in Spaine," were sadly drowned in a shipwreck on their trip back to New England as John had decided to return. John had property in New England, and so we find that: "John Clements, late of Haverhill, being by God's providence cast away and dyeing intestate, the 21st of July 1659, Mr. Samuel Symonds and Major Gen'l Denison Granted Administration to Rob't Clements, Ipswich court next he to bring in an inventory unto the sayd Court and then the Court to take further order therein." (April Term, 1659.) "Whereas the Hon'ble Mr. Samuel Symonds and Major Gen'U Denison Granted Administration vnto Robert Cements of the estate of his Brother John Clements until this Court, and then to bring in an inventory, wch now he hath done, wch  amounts to six score and ten pounds. This courte doeth confirm the power of Administration vnto the sayd Robert Clements of the estate of his Brother John Clements & the Courte of March nexte to take further order therein." (September term, 1659.)

John had no money and had not paid him as he had promised (he may have lost it in Spain.) John's brother Robert, Jr., asked for reimbursement from John's estate for taking John's family to Ireland (via Spain,) at John's request. He asked for expenses and time lost which was a whole year. The article doesn't say if he was reimbursed or not.  His brothers said that he should be reimbursed from John's estate.

Robert Clements, Sr. died on his farm where he first settled in Haverhill, 29 September 1658, at the age of about 63. His will was dated 6 September 1658.  Not all of his children were in Haverhill.  He mentions his wife; sons: Job, John, Abraham, and Daniel; sons-in-law: Moses Pingrin, Abraham Morrill, and John Osgood; "to my children's children and that are in New England; to Mr. Ward, our minister."

Clements in New England:

They first were colonizers in a wild country and in constant danger from the incursions of Indians, than as worthy citizens of the great Republic.

The family in this Country knew the names of all of his children and that Daniel and Abraham went to Ireland with Cromwell's army and that the family became prominent there and was elevated to the British peerage.  ...
