Clement and Mary were "dismissed" from the Dorchester, Massachusetts, church to Taunton, Massachusetts, but returned. On 13 December 1658, the church readmitted them on the condition that they renew the covenant. At a town meeting on 6 December 1658, Clement was chosen town "bailiff" (constable?). On 14 July 1668 Thomas Davenport, Sr., was orderd to straighten the highway at the bottom of the hill between his house and that of Clement's. Clement's son Samuel is thought to have married Mary Davenport, although I have found no record of this or that Thomas had a daughter Mary. Clement is thought to have had a younger brother John, whose family can be found in records of North Shore and New Hampshire towns. Mary was buried 5 May 1707 in Dorchester.(1) I haven't found the primary source for Clement's death.
