Mahlon Stacy married Rebecca Ely on 29 May 1668 at the Balby MM, York, England.[1]

When the first ship, the "Shield", reached the falls of Delaware, in 1678, among its passengers were one Mahlon Stacye, with his wife, Rebecca Ely, their children and servants of the Ballifield Hall family. In sailing up the stream the vessel became entangled in the trees overhanging the shore at a point which is now covered with the ferry-houses and docks of the city of Philadelphia. Some one on board the ship made the prophetic remark while the seamen were endeavoring to free the rigging from the trees, that the place would make a fine site for a city. It is one of the instances of the landed wealth of the Old World coming to Western Continent to participate in its development. The Stacyes left Ballifield Estate in Yorkshire to develop a tract of land in West Jersey which had been acquired in England in the settlement of the estate of Edward Byllynge. The eight hundred acres included in this tract now form the heart of the city at Trenton and was originally given the name of Ballifield by the Stacyes from their old place in England.
