Hey built the clock-house at Watton at his own expense, and was buried in 1682--"Norfolk Archaeology," iii. 403.

In the Norwich Mayoralty Court Book, under date July 15, 1674, is the following:

"Mr. Chr. Hey & severall others of the Inhabitants of Watton came to ye Court and gave their humble & hearty thanks to ye Court for promotinge the chariable benevolence of ye Inhabitants of ye City towards the releife of the poore of that towne who suffered by a great fyre lately there."

Thomas Clarke and Ann Beast were married November ye 3rd 1664.

Thos Clarke signs the register as churchwarden at the end of the years 1685-1686

Clark, Elizabeth, wife of Thos Bur Aug 18, 1698

Clark, Thomas, bur September 5, 1706

The register of Hockwold (-cum-Wilton) has the following: "Clarke, Ann ye wife of Thomas, buri. 21 December 1676." From which it appears Thomas was twice married, but as no entry of his second marriage appears on either of the above registers, he probably went further away for his wife.
