Question from Peter - Abbreviation in Yorkshire Deeds

Please could you or your readers advise what the abbreviation 'clk' found in the Yorkshire Archaeological Society, Record Series, Yorkshire Deeds, for the 15th Century means?

Eg;

'to Robert Frost, clk., chancellor of the lord Prince, Thomas Pek, clk.,'

Many thanks.
Peter

My guess would be 'clerk', if that makes sense in the greater context.

Anyone else?

I agree: Clerk.
