There is an error on Richard Stone’s descendant chart (I’m certain more errors will be found!). On page 12, Jane Stone the daughter of Captain Stone 1784 was NOT baptized in Ashbrittle in 1811. She was born September 8, 1909 in England, probably in Somerset or Hertfordshire, but her baptism has not yet been located. Jane Stone the daughter of Captain Stone 1756 and his wife Elizabeth aka Betty Langbridge WAS baptized in Ashbrittle that January 11 (page 42). She was their last child, after Captain retired from the Excise. He and Betty returned first to the Wadhams farm portion of the Venn Farm property) and then to Ashbrittle after he sold his interest in the Venn farm in the early 1800s. The history of this branch of the Stone family has roots in Ashbrittle in the 17c after their start in Clayhanger.
Captain Stone 1756’s descendants went to Austrailia and New Zealand in the 1830s. Captain Stone 1784 immigrated with his family to Albion, Illinois in 1818.

Keep up the good work! I am the 2nd great grandson of Mary Ann STONE (1831 – 1904) of Burlescombe, Devon.
And I have other Stones marrying into the family as well, so I’m very interested in your work.
Just checking your message above though, you say she was not baptised in 1811 but was baptised in 1909. It confused me for a minute!
Thanks for your comments, I will comment further in a week or so. JCS II.
The Jane Stone who was a daughter of Captain Stone 1784 has not been found in the records, but she is documented later in life. The Jane Stone who was the daughter of Captain Stone 1756 was baptized in Ashbrittle in 1811. The two Captains are related and in separate branches of descendants of Richard Stone.
