Don't forget we have the surname Clarke (and Clarks) in Paul's tree and Clarkes (and Clarks) in The wife's tree too. The wife's great-grandmothers maiden name was Clarke. There is no connection that we can find so far, no we were not connected before we were married... It is a very common name so good luck if you are also tracing yr Clarke family tree...
