  • Notes 
    • From An Essay Towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk by Francis Blomefield (citation details below):

      Clere, &c. as before, impaling Owydale or Dovedale, arg. a cross moline gul. quartering gul. a chevron erm. between three delises or; and Rusteyn, a horse passant sab. trapped, bridled and saddled or.

      This Robert is said by all evidences to be buried in the cathedral in Norwich, with Elizabeth Owydale his wife, as at vol. iv. p. 35; but though she was, it is plain to me now, that he was buried according to his will, in the nave of Ormesby St. Margaret's church, with these inscriptions; the former now remains, though the latter is lost:

      Credo quod Redemptor meus vivit; de Terra surrecturus sum.
      In Carne mea videbo Deum, Salbatorem meum.
      Hic iaret Robeertus Clere, qui obiit iio. Mensis Augusti Anno Dom. Mccccflbioruius anime propicietur Deus.


      He gave all his estate for life to his wife, and at her death William his son was to have the manors of Ormesby, Freethorp, and the manor and advowson of Winterton, &c. and Thomas his son to have Stratton Streeless manor, and Robert his son, Keswick manor in tail, after the death of his sons without issue, to Edmund his brother, remainder to Margaret, daughter of the said Robert.
