    Notes:

    Her origins are unproven, but the most recent and probably best theory was put forward by Dean Crawford Smith and Melinde Lutz Sanborn in The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton 1878-1908, Part I (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1996), pp. 450-51. In her sketch for John Stone (login required) in the Early New England Families Study Project (citation details below), Alicia Crane Williams summarized the discussion:

    "Likely daughter of Barnaby and Mary (Wells) Rogers. John Stone and his wife, Anne, and Nathaniel Treadway were legatees in the wills of EDWARD HOWE (GMB, 2:1013-16) and his wife Margaret Wells, but the exact nature of their relationship 'remains a matter of discussion.' J. Gardner Bartlett disproved the theory that Anne was a sister of Treadway's wife and thus a daughter of Edward Howe. He believed that Anne was likely a sister of Nathaniel Treadway and that their mother was probably a sister of Edward Howe. Dean Crawford Smith and Melinde Lutz Sanborn in their 1995 TAG article 'The English Origins of The Howe and Treadway Families of Watertown. Massachusetts' accepted that relationship, but by 1996 in The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton... Part I, further research had led them to suggest it was more likely that John Stone's wife was Ann Rogers, baptized at Boxted, England, 14 May 1615 to Barnaby and Mary [Wells] Rogers, and thus a niece of Margaret Wells, who had married Edward Howe."

    If John Stone's wife Anne was indeed Anne Rogers, dauughter of Barnaby Rogers and Mary Wells, she was baptised at Boxted, Essex on 14 May 1615.

    Notes:

    He and his family arrived at Boston 17 July 1638 on the Susan and Ellen.

    Selectman of Charlestown in 1644; in 1646, representative to the General Court. Re-elected in 1647, he was chosen speaker of the House of Deputies. Captain of the Malden train-band. He is most remembered for having, in 1648, led the committee that first codified and published all the laws of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Ironically, this led to a small spot of bother on the occasion of his third marriage, to Helen Atkinson, as reported in Genealogical Data Relating to the Ancestry and Descendants of William Hills (citation details below):

    "In the early days of the Colony all marriages were solemnized by magistrates, the clergy having no part in the ceremony. In 1641 Governor Bellingham, as magistrate, married himself to Penelope Pelham, and when called on to come down from the bench and plead to a complaint against him for the act, refused to do so. Joseph Hills was a magistrate for the trial of small causes, and followed the Governor's example in his marriage of January, 1656, but, unlike the Governor, did not escape public censure. The records of the Court for Middlesex County show that, April 1, 1656, 'Mr. Joseph Hills of Mauldon being presented by the Grand Jury for marrying of himself, contrary to the law of this Collony page 38 in ye old Booke. Hee freely acknowledged his offence therein, and his misvnderstanding the grounds whereon he went which he now confesseth to be vnwarrantable, And was admonished by the Court.'"
