About Simon Stacy

Simon Stacy, a resident on Ipswich, must have reached New England with his family as early as 1637, for on March 2,1637/38, too early for vessels to have arrived that year, as "Good man Stace," he was assigned the use of the home lot adjoining that of William Warner.

On August 30, 1638, he received a grant of six acres of planting ground between John Whipple and Henry Archer.

In 1639/40, he had the right to pasture one cow on the town's common land and in 1641, was called a "commoner", having a proportionate right to the town's individual lands.

Some records indicate that Simon Stacy was born in 1597. This would indicate he was about 40 years of age when arriving in America in 1637 with six children: Thomas, Elizabeth, Sarah, Susanna, Ann and Simon all born in Bocking, England. The youngest daughter, Mary, was born in Ipswich, MA in 1639.

At the point it is uncertain as to the parents of Simon Stacy. (MSV- It most likely wasn't William and Anne Garrold because they didn't marry until 1606 and they don't have a simon listed as a child)

Birth: 1597 Harwich, England Death: Oct. 27, 1644 Ipswich Essex County Massachusetts, USA

Simon had married Elizabeth Clerke, November 6, 1620, at Theyden Mount, Essexshire, England. Elizabeth was from Theydon Granon, Essexshire, England.

The record of marriage was from Chester's "London Marriages" and was worded as follows:

"Simon Stacy of Bocking, Essex County, Clothier, and Elizabeth Clerke of Theydon Granon, said county, spinster, daughter of Stephen Clerke of same, Yeoman, married at Theydon Mount, Essex County, November 6, 1620."

There are few details on the life of Simon because there is no will, nor an exact date of death.

Simon died about 1644, for on February 27, 1644/45, William Adam Sr. (whose son William Jr. had married Simon's daughter Elizabeth) was granted twelve acres of land "near to the land of the Widdow Stacye."

Simon died young, at about 47 years of age and seven years after arriving in America.

Simon must have been successful in business for after twenty years the possessions of his wife Elizabeth showed many comforts and even luxuries.

Simon's widow survived him by 25 years. Late in 1669, Elizabeth Stacy became very ill, perhaps suddenly so as she dictated a will in the presence of three of her children "a day or two before she dyed." The will failed of her signature, so the three children took an oath as to what their mother's stated wishes had been.
