General contextClarke's early education was likely shaped by the Civil War, although it is unclear whether he faced expulsion at Balliol College during the time of the parliamentary visitation in 1648 due to his refusal to submit. His proximity to Charles II as a physician afforded him some renown in the field of anatomy, although he did not live long enough to complete his work on his own anatomical investigations intended for publication.
