 The Clayton Herbarium: Homepage - Botany Dept (BM), NHM, London
John Clayton (1694-1773) was one of the early collectors of plant specimens in Virginia, where he was Clerk to the County Court of Gloucester County from 1720 until his death 53 years later.
Although he published almost nothing himself, Clayton's specimens have considerable nomenclatural importance as, having reached Europe and the hands of J.F. Gronovius (1690-1762) by 1735, many of them were studied by the Swedish biologist Carolus Linnaeus (1707-1778) and were among the earliest North American specimens that he had seen.
Although Linnaeus obtained some duplicates of Clayton's specimens, now to be found in Linnaeus's own herbarium at the Linnean Society of London, the specimens that Gronovius had studied were bought in 1794 by Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820), the naturalist who travelled with Captain Cook.

 John Clayton: Theistic evolutionist "Does God Exist"
These are merely to openly document exactly what John Clayton believes, since there are many who mistakenly think he is a young earth creationist rather than a theistic evolutionist.
Since, as we have established, brother Clayton believes that the Earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old (1990a, p 130)-the standard evolutionary estimate-he must, in some fashion, accommodate the Genesis creation account to this concept.
Thus, in capsule form, John is saying that when the Bible says God created, what it really means is that God, over eons of time, "prepared" an Earth for man. And He didn't create everything to exist on that "first" Earth.
