  • Notes 
    • From William Wyman Fiske, "Clarke and Stacy Origins of Three Immigrants to Ipswich, Massachusetts" (citation details below):

      Although no marriage for Simon's parents has been found, it is probable that Thomas Stacy married Sarah Wood, daughter of Henry and Joan (___) Wood, presumably the Sara Wood, parents unnamed, baptized at Epping 29 January 1562/3. As their first recorded child, Thomas, was baptized there 27 March 1586, Thomas Stacy and Sarah Wood were married by 1585.

      Thomas Wood, husbandman of Roydon, Essex, in his will dated 24 March 1599/1600, named "brethren [in law]" John Archer and Thomas Stace of Epping; Elizabeth Archer, "my brother John Archer's daughter"; and "Henry Wood and John son of my brother Henry deceased." William Stace was a witness. In his will dated 12 February 1594/5, Henry Wood of Tolleshunt Major, yeoman, mentioned "Thomas Wood and Thomas Stace my brothers" and named, among others, mother Joan Wood, late deceased, and brother Christopher Wood.

      The will of Sarah's father, "Henrie Woode of Eppinge, yeoman," made 27 September 1574, proved 20 February 1576/7, named wife Jone, sons Henry, John and Thomas, daughters Lucy (under 20 and unmarried), Sara (under 20 and unmarried), Margerie, and Margaret; wife Jone to be executor with sons Henry and John, and son-in-law John Archer to act as overseer. Joan Wood, widow of Epping, in her will dated 25 January 1591, proved May 1592, left a bequest for "the repair of the highway leadin[g] from Eppingbury to Epping Church" and mentioned daughter Margery, the children of daughter Margaret, the children of daughter Sara, the children of daughter Luce, Jane wife of son Thomas, members of the Wignall family, John Googe, Grace Luther, Susan Ingold, Agnes Roper, William Wignall and Agnes Wood his sister. She left to son Henry land in Hatfield Broadoak, and appointed son-in-law Christopher Wood [probably her stepson] executor. Mr. Hidron and John Archer were to be overseers.
