Ralph Clarke (mayor)
Clark came from the prominent Clark family of Chesterfield and was elected to the post of Mayor in 1598 following the Elizabethan charter issued that same year, which granted the town the right to elect a mayor.
In 1641 when Poll tax was paid, Ralph paid the highest amount in the town.
