The fleet arrived at New Amsterdam in August, 1664, and that place and all the New Netherlands were surrendered by Governor Stuyvesant, to the English, on the 27th day of the same month. This English company of Puritans, living on Long Island and in New England, having obtained permission of Governor Stuyvesant to settle on the banks of the Raritan River, commenced their negotiations with the Indian sachems December 5, 1663; and concluded the first Indian purchase of land, which was made from Poppomora, chief of the Navesink Indians to John Bowne, James Hubbard, William Golding, Richard Stout, Samuel Spicer, and John Tilton, Jr, all of Gravesend, Long Island, by deed dated January 25, 1664 the original record of which is at Albany, New York, and copies are also recorded at Perth Amboy and Trenton, New Jersey.

Having purchased the land, John Bowne, Richard Stout and three others, with their families, five families in all, came and made their settlement in the spring or summer of 1664 - nearly a year before the patent was issued.

Having already complied with the first conditions of Governor Nicolls' proclamation, the company made application to the Governor for a grant to cover the purchase already made and others which they intended to make. This grant embraced all of the present county of Monmouth, and a part of Ocean and Middlesex Counties. It is dated April 8, 1665. It is known as the famous "MONMOUTH PATENT".

(William Bowne of Yorkshire, England & His Descendants by Miller K. Reading, M.D., 1903)

The death date is the date his will was probated.

"But as his will, which is recorded in Trenton, is dated 9 June, 1703, and was probated 23 October, 1705. His will is recorded in Liber 1, p 120, of Wills at Trenton, New Jersey.

His parents were John Stout and Elizabeth Bee who lived and died in Nottinghamshire, England.
