--------------------

JOHN STONE was b. in England in Early March of 1635. He was listed as five weeks old on the passenger list of the ship INCREASE when his family signed on as passengers on 15 Apr. 1635 in London, England, the ship's port of departure. John might well have been born in his parents home town, Great Bromley, Essex, England. He died on 26 March 1691Watertown, Middlesex Co., MA.[1/4:206]

---

Savage noted that Bond indicated the Watertown Records gave John's birthdate as 15 Aug 1635. Another source, David Pulsifer, copied from the Boston Records the following, "John ye son of Symon & Jone (Joan) Stone borne l5 (6) l635", that is, 15 August by the dating practices of the time.[1/4:206][4][5] This is a puzzle. It was not an unknown practice for the birth dates of all children to be entered into the records of of a New England town when a family settled there, even though the children had been born previously in another location.

Simon Stone and his family might have stayed in Boston long enough for this to have happened prior to their settling in Watertown. Savage seemed to attribute this date of 15 Aug 1635 to a "blunder" on the part of the clerk who entered the information in the Watertown records. He doesn't seem to have been aware of the identical entry in the Boston records. It seems to strain the bounds of coincidence that two clerks, in two different towns would have made the same "blunder".

Yet, the passenger list of the INCREASE states unequivocably that John was 5 weeks old on 15 Apr. 1635. Even if this infant John had died and another son John was born in on 15 Aug of the same year, assuming that the age of 5 weeks was correct, there have been insufficient time for Joan Stone to have carried a child to full term between early March and the 15th of August.

--------------------

Came with parents at age 5 on the ship "Increase". Was a deacon and a Selectman. (Framingham Mass. Genealogies, by J.H. Temple; published by the town of Framingham, 1887)

From Bond's History of Watertown: Was selectman 1674,81,82,83,84,85,86,87,90, and was town clerk 1687 and 1690. He was released from training 1-9-1687, then aged 52.
