Don't forget we have Clarkes (and Clarks) in Paul's family tree and Clarkes (and Clarks) in Clare's tree too. Clare's great-grans maiden name was Clarke. There is no connection that we can find so far, no we were not related before we were wed... It is a jolly common name so good luck if you are also tracing yr Clarke tree...
