     Clemence was born in England. She is the sister of Reverand Robert Fordham. Clemence married William Ludlam II, son of William Ludlam I and Mary, circa 1627 in England. Clemence departed this life on Tuesday, 21 August 1646 in Matlock, Derbyshire, England. She probably died from complications of child birth.
