Cambridge Historical Society: This Dr Daniel Stone the petitioner was a son of Deacon Gregory Stone of Cambridge and as a good deal of information about Gregory Stone and his family has come to light since the publication of Paige's History of Cambridge it may be worth while to add to Paige's account of Gregory Stone and his family what has since been learned about his English home and ancestors. Gregory Stone came from England in 1635 with his brother Simon Stone of Watertown, and we now know that they were both born at Great Bromley or as it was formerly called Much Bromley in Essex County England. The Parish Registers of Great Bromley contain the following records Feby 9 1585 6 was baptized Simond Stone son of Davie Stone & Ursly his wife, April 19 1592 was baptized Gregorie Stone son of David Stone, and August 5 1616 is recorded the marriage of Symond Stone and Joan Clarke. David Stone the father of Simon and Gregory was the son of Symond and Agnes Stone of Much Bromley and is named in his father's will dated July 28 1558. Up to this point the ancestry of Simon and Gregory is beyond question but it is almost equally certain that this Symond Stone of Much Bromley. the grandfather of Simon and Gregory was the grandson through an eldest son David of a still earlier Symond Stone of Much Bromley whose will is dated May 12 1506 and was probated February 10 1510. Much or Great Bromley the home of so many generations of the ancestors of our Gregory Stone of Cambridge is five miles east of Colchester the principal city of Essex County and fifty eight miles from London. A few years ago some of the American descendants of Simon and Gregory Stone united in erecting a beautiful memorial window in the ancient church of Great Bromley with this inscription To the Glory of God and to the memory of Simon and Gregory Stone, Brothers who were born in this Parish, baptized in this Church, and emigrated to Massachusetts in New England in 1635 this window is erected by American descendants. Simon Stone the elder of the two brothers married at Great Bromley in 1616 Joan Clarke as noted above. He removed to Boxted Essex County between 1621 and 1624 and resided there until he emigrated to America in 1635. Gregory Stone removed from Great Bromley to Nayland Suffolk County some time before 1617 in which year he married there Margaret Garrad daughter of Thomas and Christian Garrad of Nayland. The following extracts from the Parish Register of Nayland give his marriage and the birth jf all of his children, 1617 Julie The 20 daie wer married Gregory Stonne and Margaret Garrad 1618 July. The last daie was bapt John sonne of Gregory Stonne, 1620 August The 15 day was bap Daniel ye sonne of Gregory Stone, 1622 Septem 22 was bapt David ye sonne of Gregorie Stone, 1624 October 3 was bap Elizabeth the daughter of Gregory Stone. Then follows the death of his wife and daughter. 1626 Aug 4 was buryed Margrett the wife of Gregory Stone,1626 August 6 was buryed, Elizabeth the daughter of Gregory Stone. The deaths so near together of the mother and daughter make it seem probable that they died from one of the epidemics so common at that time. About two years after the death of his first wife Gregory Stone married as his second wife the widow Lydia Cooper who came here to Cambridge with him and who formerly was supposed to be the mother of all his children. The record of this marriage has not been discovered as far as I know but from other sources it is known beyond much question that she was from Dedham in Essex and that she was the widow of Simon Cooper of that place. Dedham and Nayland are both on the river Stour and are only a few miles apart. By his second wife Lydia Cooper Gregory Stone had the following children recorded at Nayland, 1628 March 6 was bap Elizabethe the daug of Gregorie Stone, 1630 February 4 dale was bapt Samuell sonne of Gregory Stone, 1632 Feby 8 was bapt Sarah daughter of Gregory Stonne. So of the six children who came to New England with Gregory Stone three John, Daniel, and David were by his first wife Margaret Garrad, and three Elizabeth Samuel and Sarah were by his second wife Lydia Cooper.
