About John Stone, of Salem

John Stone was a resident of Gloucester, Mass, as early as August 27, 1644. He was evidently a man of independent thought in religious matters, as he criticized the sermons of the Rev. Richard Blynman and on the above date was presented at court, "for scandalizing Mr. Blynman, with charging him with a false interpretation of Scripture, as also saying that if an angel from heaven should preach the same he would not believe it, and that there were other of his mind; and also further in a discourse with James Smith tending to the reproach of the doctrine delivered by Mr. Blynman;" was fined fifty shillings and fees of the court and witnesses. This was a most excessive fine.

It is not known if he was related to Captain John Stone of the Wessagusset Colony. Captain John Stone was a stormy sea captain, he was fined for confronting authority 1633, he was murdered in January 1633/4.
