Simon Stone
Birth: 1507
Great Bromley
Tendring District
Essex, England
Death: Jul. 28, 1557
Great Bromley
Tendring District
Essex, England

This memorial is dedicated to my ancestor Simon Stone. He was the son of David and Catherine Stone.
He married Agnes in 1533 at Great Bromley, Essex County, England.
Simon and Agnes were the parents of John and David.
Their two grandsons Gregory and Simon immigrated to America on the ship "The Increase" from Ipswich with their wives and families ranging from one month old to 16 years, landing in Massachusetts in April three months later.

Simon Stone was probably born about 1507 in Great Bromley, Essex. His uncle Walter Stone bought the estate called "Churchgate" in 1520. Walter apparently didn't have any children, for he gave the estate to Simon. In 1533, Simon married Agnes Speed at St. George the Martyr in Great Bromley. He must have accompanied his father from Great Bromley to Kirby-le-Soken in 1540, because after his father's death, Simon took his father's place on the tax list in 1544. The next year he was back in Great Bromley, where he was assessed in at least three tax lists. He lived in Great Bromley until his death in 1557. He must have had quite a bit of land, because he was assessed on land, not personal property, and his taxes were substantial. Agnes outlived him and was mentioned in his will, dated July 28. 1557. Simon and his cousin Robert Stone were churchwardens at Great Bromley in 1552. Simon lived during the period of the reformation. (additional bio info provided by Ken Smith)
