  • Notes 
    • Robert Charles Anderson (citation details below) considers it "highly probable" that this Edward Stebbing was the Edward Stebbing baptized at Black Notley, son of William Stebbing. He was certainly a brother of Editha Stebbing. John Insley Coddington ("The Stebbing Family," citation details below) appears to have had the same view, i.e., that Edward was probably a son of William, and that Edward and Edith/Editha were definitely siblings.

      Emigrated 1633, first at Cambridge, where he lived at the southwest corner of Water (later Dunster) Street and Braintree or Harvard Street (later Massachusetts Avenue); "that is, he lived on what is now Harvard Square, opposite the Yard" [Coddington, citation details below]. He was a deputy from Cambridge to the Massachusetts general court in 1635.

      In 1636 he migrated to Hartford with the Rev. Hooker's party. He served as deacon of the Hartford church from his arrival (or very shortly afterward) until his death. He was also a deputy to the Connecticut general court 21 times between 1639 and 1656. He was frequently appointed to take inventories of the recently deceased, and served in many other responsible positions. His name is on the Founders Monument in downtown Hartford.
