For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Clanton or a variant listed above: John Clanton who settled in Virginia in 1635; James Clenton arrived in New York State in 1803; W. S. Clendin arrived in San Francisco in 1852. Source: House of Names
