            Peter Clements (1739-1832), a Loyalist, was born at Cortlandt Manor near Yorktown, New York, and served as a captain in the King's American Regiment during the American Revolution. He received a town lot in Parrtown (Saint John) in 1784, but did not settle there, and later a lot in Fredericton. However, eventually he settled in Douglas Parish, York County, and built a house which he called "Claremont." He married Abigail Palmer (1749-1834) and they had three sons and four daughters. His children married into the following families: Bedell, Bradley, Hatheway, Morehouse, Brickendon, Allen, and Hubbard. Peter served as a magistrate for York County and received a captain's half-pay as a former officer of a British regiment.
