Thanks to visitors to this website, after more than twenty years of research focused on Somerset and Devon, the identity of Richard Stone’s first wife (my 9X GGM) is known! First, a parish record image for the 1633 burial of “Emmin”, wife of Richard Stone was found and sent to me. Second, a marriage record from Burlescombe, Devon, identifies the marriage of “Ricardus Stone” and “Emma Sedgeborrow” on May 10, 1599. The spellings of Emma’s name – both given and surname – are difficult to read and I have chosen Emma Sedgeborrow as closest to what we would use today. I will prepare a new Descendancy Chart for Richard.
One thought on “Richard Stone’s first wife identified!”
I also have a Richard stone in my ancestral line from the !5th century. I am descended from Gov. Wm. Stone of Maryland.
My name is Edgar Gregory (Gregg) Stone. I live in Amarillo, Texas but my Stone family go backwards from Okla., to Mo., Kansas, Indiana, Maryland/N. Carolina to Virginia And back to England. Looking at the past lineage I suppose it is very likely that we are cousins of some measure!
