I remember walking through the little village of Denbigh, Wales, and around the castle Plas Clough, on the outside so there may have been descendents of the Cloughs still living there. I'm on business travel this week, but when I return at the end of the week, I'll look up pictures of the castle. Here are a few notes I made before:
"Richard Clough, the fifth son of Richard Clough the Hen, received the title Sir Richard, a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre, after his pilgrimage to the Holy Land. After his return from the Holy Land, Sir Richard Clough was associated with the wealthy merchant Sir Thomas Gresham, who erected the Royal Exchange building in London in 1565 at the suggestion of Sir Richard. Sir Richard accumulated a considerable fortune, and on his paternal estate in Denbigh he built his mansion, Plas Clough, now occupied by his descendants. He gave other estates to each of his two daughters, one of them at Bachecrag near Denbigh. Sir Richard died at Antwerp in 1570. His descendents were the following: Richard-3; William-4; John-5; Hugh-6; Hugh-7; Richard-8; James-9, who resided at Liverpool; and Arthur Hugh-10, the famous poet who died in 1861 in England."
