Robert Crayton was born, is Actor, Producer, Sound Department. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Rob has performed in events since childhood, such as "Mr. Bojangles", singing in the choir, small films, plays and just plain entertaining his whole family at reunions. He made his acting debut, on "Tru TV", as "Tank" on Southern Fried Stings (2010). He performed in many films, such as soon-to-be released Let the Church Say Amen (2013), directed by Regina King (Southland (2009)), also starring Hosea Chanchez ( The Game ) , TheQuad with SeanBlakemore & AnikaNoniRose, TheInspectors with TerrySerpico, TheUnderground with AldisHodge & JurneeSmollett and many others. Along with his acting ability in films, TV shows and commercials, he also does voice-overs, raps, stand-up comedy, uses firearms in his films which he believes makes him very well-rounded and prepared to take on any role.His mother, who is left-handed, combined with an injury to his right hand allowed him to use both hands in most sports, that combined with his grades in school landed him the opportunity to leave N.Y. at an early age and attend prep school upstate, where he excelled in sports and started to participate in skits and perform comedy. He loved this experience of living on his own in a dorm, like being in college before being of age, but after his first bout with racism, he desired to come home, so after about 2 years he came home. He was always a class clown, which teachers only allowed it because he was funny plus his grades were high, in some classes. He was voted most-likely to be an actor and on TV and he was often sought after by others in school for their media projects for impersonations and characters. During this time, he developed a passion for rapping and became very proficient at it, especially free-styling (without writing lyrics), due to his grandmother's method of learning, which consisted of memorizing 300 words, spelling and meaning before he could go play during the summer, he hated it then but states it did pay dividends in the future, thanks, Grandma. His rapping ability has led him to performing on BET's 106&Park television show and being the opening act for the BET Comics, winning several cash prizes, recording contracts as well as opportunities to be featured on several compilation albums.He realized that his greatest passion is for acting and was absolutely intrigued by the horror genre and stated that it has been this way since childhood, which is why many of his films that he has starred in are horror films. He would fit well into this genre with his large muscular frame honed on the gridirons of the football field, where being aggressive is a good thing and his aggressive nature, along with growing up in the projects in Brooklyn allows him to easily perform the role of the bad guy his personal favorite character to portray!!! He also, not always by choice, memorized anything that he sees or hears, which he feel is a great asset to being an actor. While performing due to his "Private Benjamin" behavior/impressions of others, he was asked to perform skits for Majors and Colonels alike, so even when he was bad, he was good and got to hone his skills. He has always loved to entertain others in some type of capacity, so for him getting paid to do so is just icing on the cake. Professionally, he was a youth counselor in which each day working with children is different when you are dealing with a myriad of personalities, but he enjoyed the challenge of helping today's youth, it helps a lot in this field whenever a child that he might work with recognizes him from TV or he can show them some of my talents as an ice-breaker, in order to gain their trust allowing him to help them. He was well-trained and certified to work in this field, he believes that what he did as a professional, combined with his talent, will allow him to be even more successful in the entertainment business. When relaxing he likes to play video games, watch movies and spend time with family.

Biography/Timeline

1695

Clayton was born at Dublin in 1695, a descendant of the Claytons of Fulwood, Lancashire, whose estates came to him by inheritance. He was the eldest of eight children of Dr. Robert Clayton, minister of St. Michael's Church, Dublin, and dean of Kildare, and Eleanor, daughter of John Atherton of Busie. Zachary Pearce educated him privately, at Westminster School.

1714

Clayton entered Trinity College, Dublin, became B.A. 1714, a fellow the same year, M.A. 1717, LL.D. 1722, and D.D. 1730. He made a tour of Italy and France, and on his father's death in 1728 came into possession of a good estate and married Katherine, daughter of Lord Chief Baron Nehemiah Donnellan and his second wife Martha Ussher. He gave his wife's fortune to her sister Anne (who used it to fund the Donnellan Memorial Lectures at Trinity College), and doubled the bequest, under his father's will, to his own three sisters. A wealthy man, he lived in Dublin in what is now Iveagh House. One of the two houses (No. 80) that make up the current Iveagh House was designed for Clayton by Richard Castle, and built in 1736–7.

1729

A gift to a distressed scholar recommended to him by Samuel Clarke brought him Clarke's friendship. Clayton embraced Clarke's Arian doctrines and held to them through life. Queen Caroline, hearing from Clarke of Clayton, had him appointed bishop of Killala and Achonry in 1729–1730. In 1735 he was translated to the diocese of Cork and Ross, and in 1745 to the diocese of Clogher. In 1752 he was made Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, having some years before been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.

1738

His first publication was a letter in the Philosophical Transactions, August 1738. In 1739 he published 'The Bishop of Corke's Letter to his Clergy,' Dublin, and 'A Sermon preached before the Judges of Assize,' Cork, and in 1740 'The Religion of Labour,' Dublin, for the Society for Promoting English Protestant Schools in Ireland. In 1743 he published ' A Replication . . . with the History of Popery,' &c., Dublin, directed against the author of 'A Brief Historical Account of the Vaudois.' In 1747 appeared 'The Chronology of the Hebrew Bible vindicated ... to the Death of Moses,' London, pp. 494. In 1749 he published 'A Dissertation on Prophesy . . . with an explanation of the Revelations of St. John,' Dublin; reprinted London. This work aimed at reconciling the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation, and proving that the ruin of popery and the end of the dispersion of the Jews would take place in 2000. Two letters followed, printed separately, then together, 1751, London, 'An Impartial Enquiry into the Time of the Coming of the Messiah.'

1751

In 1751 appeared the most notable work written by him (though often asserted to be that of a young clergyman of his diocese), 'Essay on Spirit . . . with some remarks on the Athanasian and Nicene Creeds,' London, 1751. This book, full of Arian doctrine, led to a long controversy. It was attacked by william Jones of Nayland, william Warburton (who described it as 'the rubbish of old heresies'), Nathaniel Lardner, and others. The Duke of Dorset, the lord-lieutenant of Ireland, refused on account of this work to appoint him to the vacant archbishopric of Tuam. Several editions appeared in (1752, 1753, and 1759). In 1752 a work having appeared called 'A Sequel to the Essay on Spirit,' London; Clayton published 'The Genuine Sequel to the Essay,' &c., Dublin.

1752

His next work was 'A Vindication of the Histories of the Old and New Testament, in answer to the Objections of . . . Bolingbroke,' pt. i., Dublin, 1752. In 1753 he published 'A Journey from Grand Cairo to Mount Sinai, and back again. In Company with some Missionaries de propaganda Fide,' &c., translated from a manuscript which had been mentioned by Edward Pococke in his 'Travels.' It included an account of the supposed inscriptions of the Israelites in the Gebel el Mokatab. The work was addressed to the Society of Antiquaries, and the author offered to assist an exploration in Mount Sinai, but the society took no steps in the matter. Edward Wortley Montagu, however, was induced to visit the spot and give an account of the inscriptions. The same year Clayton published 'A Defence of the Essay on Spirit,' London. His next work was 'Some Thoughts on Self-love, Innate Ideas, Freewill,' &c., occasioned by David Hume's works, London, 1754. The same year he brought out the second part of the 'Vindication of ... the Old and New Testament,' Dublin. This produced Alexander Catcott's attack on his theories of the earth's form and the deluge. In 1756 appeared 'Letters which passed between . . . the Bishop of Clogher and Mr. william Penn concerning Baptism,' London, in which he asserted the cessation of baptism by the Holy Ghost. Clayton's friend william Bowyer obtained a copy of the correspondence and published it.

1756

Clayton proposed, 2 February 1756, in the Irish House of Lords, that the Athanasian creed and Nicene creed should be removed from the liturgy of the Church of Ireland. Despite the controversy this aroused, no proceedings were taken against him until the publication of the third part of the 'Vindication of ... the Old and New Testament,' Dublin, 1757, when he renewed his attack on the Trinity and advanced doctrines contrary to the Thirty-nine Articles. Horace Walpole said caustically that his Vindication seemed calculated to destroy anyone's faith in the Testaments. The government, by now seriously alarmed by the heterodoxy of Clayton's opinions, ordered that he be prosecuted for heresy: a meeting of Irish prelates was called at the house of the Primate, and Clayton was summoned to attend. Before the appointed time he died, on 26 February 1758.

1759

Thomas Barnard, later bishop of Limerick, who married Clayton's niece, and was his executor, had several of his works in manuscript, but they were not published. He gave copyright of all Clayton's works for England to the printer Bowyer, who issued the three parts of the 'Vindication' and the 'Essay on Spirit,' with additional notes and index to the scripture texts, London, 1759.
