About Richard Stockton, Gent.

Richard Stockton of Dunsfold, Gentleman

In his 1888 book, The Stockton Family in England and the United States, William Francis Cregar wrote that he thought it was "highly probable" that Richard "The Emigrant" Stockton (c.1635-1707) was a son of Richard and Dorothy (nee Bridger) Stockton of London. They did have a son Richard, however, that Richard Stockton died in the county of Surrey, England, and his will, dated 27 June 1665, proves that he was not the same person as Richard "The Emigrant" Stockton (c.1635-1707) who died in Burlington County, New Jersey.
