David was the son of Simon Stone and Agnes Speed.
He married first to Elizabeth Hewitt on July 10, 1566 in Great Bromley. His second marriage was to Ursula, they married August 23, 1584 in Great Bromley.
Children with Elizabeth were:
Margery, David, Elizabeth, Frances, Matthew and Agnes
Children with Ursula were:
Simon, Ursula, Mary, Gregory, Elizabeth and Samuel

David and Ursula's two sonsGregory and Simon sailed 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.
on April 29 1904 a stained-glass window, "in memory of Gregory and Simon Stone, was unveiled and dedicated in the church, funds for its execution and installation having been raised among their descendants in America, through the Stone Family Association. The memorial is located in the window of the north aisle nearest the chancel. The three principal panels contain figures representing St. Gregory the Great, St. Mary the Virgin with infant Christ, and St. Simon the Apostle; the smaller main panels under each illustrate a notable incident in the life of each, viz: St. Gregory accosting the captive English children in the Market Place in Rome, the Annunciation of the Virgin, and the call of St. Simon by Christ. In small panels at the top, a seventeeth century vessel occupies the center, suggesting the emigration to America; on one side is the seal of Massachusetts, and on the other that of Essex County, England. Over all in a topmost panel is a dove, representing the Holy Spirit. The inscription on the window reads: 'Saecula praeterita in'Saecula ventura.' (The Generations pass into the coming Generations.) A metal plate below the window is inscribed: ‘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.'"
