      From Swamp Yankee from Mystic by Roy N. Bohlander (1980):

      Edward Stallyon came with his wife Margaret to New London with the others in 1651. Unlike many of them he stayed in town for over thirty years. He must have done well with his trading sloop from the beginning, for in 1660 he had one of the few stone houses in town. Very much the businessman, in 1673 he was fined 30 shillings for sailing his vessel from New London to Norwich on the Sabbath. In 1680 he had a new 30 ton sloop Edward and Margaret built by Hugh Mould.

      About 1684 he built a house on the Pleasant Valley Road in Groton. It is still standing, and believed to be the oldest house in town. His daughter Deborah married James Avery, Jr. Edward died as he had lived--on the water. In May of 1703 he drowned while crossing the river to New London in his dugout canoe. Although he married three times, his daughter was his only heir.
