-------------------- The oldest son of John and Elisabeth Stinchfield, John Stinchfield Jr. married Mehitabel Winship in about 1760. Theirs was the first marriage performed in New Gloucester. They eventually had nine children. The John Stinchfield House, built in 1800, probably by their son John, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Thomas and Roger Stinchfield, also sons of John and Elisabeth, left New Gloucester in 1779 to settle in a place they called Leeds, after the birthplace of their father. Their log cabin was the first permanent structure in Leeds. Stinchfield Beach is located on the eastern shore of Androscoggin Lake in Leeds.

The name Stinchfield varies in different records. In some cases it is spelled Stenchfield, in others Stanchfield.
