    Biography
    • John was known as CAPTAIN JOHN CLAY, "the English Grenadier". John was the earliest American ancestor of the Clay family to come to Virginia.

      John was patented 1200 acres in Charles City County, Virginia, beginning at the lands granted by order of Court to Francis Hooke, up to the head of Wards, his creek, and bounded on the north by the James River. Due 100 acres to him as an old planter before the government of Sir Thomas Dale, and the other 1100 for the transportation of 21 persons by the "west"., July 13, 1635.
