The Life of Margaret
When Margaret Clement was born in 1654, her father, Job Clements Sr., was 39 and her mother, Margaret Dummer, was 33. She married William Munsey about 1675, in New Hampshire, United States. They were the parents of at least 2 sons and 1 daughter. She died in 1710, at the age of 56.
English, French, and Dutch: from the Latin personal name Clemens meaning ‘merciful’ (genitive Clementis). This achieved popularity firstly through having been borne by an early saint who was a disciple of St. Paul, and later because it was selected as a symbolic name by a number of early popes. There has also been some confusion with the personal name Clemence (Latin Clementia, meaning ‘mercy’, an abstract noun derived from the adjective; in part a masculine name from Latin Clementius, a later derivative of Clemens). As an American family name, Clement has absorbed cognates in other continental European languages. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 .)
