Other early Clempson in Pattingham were:

Several Clemsons were listed in A List of Families in the Archdeaconry of Stafford 1532-3. This census occurred in the "Paroche de Patengham the Sounday afor Cristenmes Day" in 1532.

Our John Clempsonne (1520) would have been about twelve years old at the time of the 1532 census. The listing may include current and deceased spouses, and all of the couple's children, both living and deceased. Someone may be listed both as the child of a couple, and also be the head of another household. It seems likely that Roger and Alice Clemson were the parents of Roger Clemson, who had his own household. This household included a son named John, who is most likely our John Clemson, born about 1520.

In the Lay Subsidy for Shropshire 1524-7, in the townland of Rudge, John Clemson is found, along with neighbors Willim Barbor, Roger Bradeley and Thomas Pytte. Rudge is described as a Shropshire chapelry of Pattingham parish.
