The first mention of Robert in St Peters Vestry records is in Sept of 1718 when he was paid for 47 foot of plank. He was a tobacco viewer in 1724-1729. In September of 1732, he was on a commission to view the Glebe report on the condition of the houses & garden pailing. He was also being paid for keeping Chas. Barker. The meeting of 1733 reveals that Charles Baker had died and been buried during the year & Robert Clopton was reimbursed for his expenses. In Oct of 1747, Robert was paid for making a coffin for George Mason.
Robert CLOPTON and Sarah Ann SCOTT had the following children:
At the Vestry meeting in November of 1750, Mary Clopton was paid for keeping Mary Gozard. She received the value of 600#'s of tobacco each year through 1758 when the Parish minutes end. For Mary to receive this payment, she would of necessity been a widow, otherwise the payment would have been to her husband. I can therefore assume Robert was deceased by this time. Mary is said to have been the daughter of William Crump, Jr.
