About Anne Stone (Rogers)

I'll add the sources shortly but there has been a lot of confusion about the parents of Anne Stone, wife of Deacon John Stone. They are Mary Wells and Barnaby Rogers, of Boxted, Essex.


Children: Hannah Stone Bent, John Stone Jr, Daniel Stone, David Stone, Mary Stone Hunt Fox, Elizabeth Stone Stow, Margaret Stone Brown Foster, Tabitha Stone Rice, Sarah Stone Hill Jones, and Nathaniel Stone.

The wife of John Stone was Ann, probably (according to most recent information from NEHGS and The American Genealogist 71:86), the Anne Rogers, baptized 14 May 1615 at Boxted, Co.Essex, who was the daughter of Barnaby Rogers and Mary Wells Rogers of Boxted. The same authors HAD listed her as Anne Treadway in The American Genealogist Vol 70, but later re-thought that in favor of the more likely origin of Anne in the Rogers family.

  • For the best sketch of this family with sources see: Dean Crawford Smith, The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton, 1878-1908, Part I: The Ancestry of Warren Francis Kempton, 1817-1879 (Boston 1996) 1:451+ and Smith, Dean Crawford. The English Origins of the Howe and Treadway Families of Watertown, Massachusetts. American Genealogist (D.L. Jacobus). (Jul 1995), 70:171@178.

NATHANIEL(A) TREADWAY, bon say 1585; died England probably before 1630; married St Botolph, Colchester, Essex, England 21 September 1614 MARY HOWE, baptized Boxted, Essex, England 23 January 1591/2, daughter of EDWARD and ANN (LUMPKIN) HOWE of Boxted, England (see Howe Chapter).

Because it is likely this couple's son was in New England before 1639 and perhaps even earlier, it is supposed that Nathaniel^ died quite young. The son may have come with, or later joined, his uncle Edward Howe of Watertown.

In a 1995 letter, Strephon B. Treadway raised the interesting possibility that Anne, the wife of Deacon John^ Stone, was not a Treadway as had long been supposed, but instead the daughter of Barnaby and Mary (Wells) Rogers, and thus a niece of Margaret (Wells) Howe, wife of Edward Howe. Based on the wills of both Edward Howe and Margaret Howe, Anne was interpreted by Bartlett to be a sister of the other Howe heir, Nathaniel Treadway (see Howe Chapter). If she were kin to Margaret, one would expect that Anne would receive more in the will of her blood aunt, than she would in that of her uncle by marriage, Edward Howe. An examination of the probates shows that this could be one of the possible interpretations. After leaving bequests to his wife, Anne Stone and Nathaniel Treadway, Edward Howe specifically instructed his wife to leave Anne Stone one third part of all the cattle. It is possible to interpret this to mean "no more than" one third part, thus supporting the idea that Margaret would seek to leave a more substantial legacy to her supposed niece. This is balanced, however, by the fact that Howe debtor Thomas Mayhew deeded a 300 acre grant jointly to Nathaniel Treadway and John Stone, showing no preference between the two heirs {Gregory Stone genealogy, 68). Margaret left one half her estate to Nathaniel Treadway, one sixth of her estate to her sister Mary (Wells) Rogers and the Rogers children John and Elizabeth of Boxted in Old England, and two sixths of her estate to John Stone of Sudbury (Middlesex Probate 1:256-7). Anne Rogers was baptized in Boxted 14 May 1615 and is well within the age range expected of the wife of John Stone. While it is possible that Anne ( ) Stone was the daughter of Nathaniel Treadway and Mary Howe, we have no direct evidence that such a child was ever born. Unfortunately, although many Treadway wills have been read and many Treadway baptisms found, no additional information beyond the marriage record at Colchester has been added to the immigrant Nathaniel Treadway's family. We cannot demonstrate the existence of an Anne Treadway who might have married John Stone, but we can demonstrate the baptism of an Anne Rogers, niece of Margaret (Wells) Howe. Given this evidence, we believe that it is more likely that Anne, the wife of John Stone, was a niece of Margaret (Wells) Howe, than the alternate theory presented by us in TAG 70:171.
