  • Notes 
    • "Simon was a 'relatively wealthy' clothier who, along with his wife Elizabeth Clark (or Clerke) Stacy, was a member of the thriving East Anglian Puritan community. With the ascendancy of Archbishop William Laud, however, Puritans experienced repression. At about the same time (1629-34), a severe economic depression struck the area's cloth industry. Many Puritans, not only the poorest and most religious, were inspired to emigrate. In the Stacys' Bocking, 'the depression was making the town "very hazardous for men of better rank to live" as the poor were becoming "very unruly."' And so, in and about 1636, the Stacys moved all or part of their family to Massachusetts in a migration that would come to encompass nineteen relatives." [Robert Strong, "Two Seventeenth-Century Conversion Narratives"]
