    From Wikipedia:

    Jeremy Clarke (also known as Jeremiah Clarke) was an early colonial settler and President of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Born into a prominent family in England, he was a merchant who came to New England with his wife, Frances Latham, and four stepchildren, settling first at Portsmouth in 1638, but the following year joining William Coddington and others in establishing the town of Newport. Here he held a variety of civic positions until 1648 when Coddington's election as President of the colony was disputed, and Clarke was chosen to serve in that office instead. He was the father of Walter Clarke, another colonial governor of Rhode Island, and also had family connections with several other future governors of the colony.

    Jeremy married Frances Latham about 1637 in England. Frances (daughter of Lewis Latham and Elizabeth) was born before 15 Feb 1610 in Kempston, Bedfordshire, England; died in Sep 1677 in Newport, Newport, Rhode Island; was buried in Common Burying Ground, Newport, Newport, Rhode Island.

    Notes:

    She emigrated about 1638 with her second husband Jeremy Clarke and her four children by William Dungan.

    From Wikipedia:

    Frances Latham (1610-1677), was a colonial American woman who settled in Rhode Island, and is known as "the Mother of Governors." Having been widowed twice, she had three husbands, and became the ancestor of at least ten governors and three deputy/lieutenant governors, and is related by marriage to an additional six governors and one deputy governor.

    Born in Bedfordshire, England, she was the daughter of Lewis Latham, a falconer for King Charles I. She was first married to William Dungan, with whom she had four children. Dungan died at an early age, and she soon married Jeremy Clarke who brought her and her Dungan children to New England where they settled in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Clarke was a prominent merchant who became the President of the colony for a year. With Clarke, Frances had seven children, the oldest of whom, Walter, later became a governor of the colony.

    Jeremy Clarke died when all of his children were still minors, after which Frances married her third husband, the Reverend William Vaughan of Newport. Frances and her last husband both died at about the same time in 1677 in Newport, and Frances was buried in the Common Burying Ground there. She leaves a legacy of thousands of descendants, many of whom reached great prominence during their lives.

    Notes:

    One of JTS's eleven proven "gateway ancestors."

    She was a brave woman. "At Boston, 16 Sept. 1658 the hangman cut off the right ear of Katherine Scott's future son-in-law Christopher Holder (who came from England two years before) for the crime of being a Quaker. Remonstrating against this barbarity, she was thrown into prison and later publicly flogged 'ten cruel stripes with a three-fold corded knotted whip.'" [Collected Papers: Armorial, Genealogical, Historical, citation details below.]

    She appears to have returned very briefly to England in 1659-60.
