Rev. Samuel Stone

The Register of the Church of All Saints, Hertford, England,
has the following entries of the baptisms of Rev. Samuel Stone and
his brothers and sisters, children of John Stone, a freeholder of
Hertford, England:

Jeremyas, son of John Stone, bapt. Feb. 18, 1599; buried Jan. 19, 1601.

Samuel, son of John Stone, bapt. July 30, 1602.

Jerome, son of John Stone, bapt. Sept. 29, 1604.

Sara, daughter of John Stone, bapt. April 3, 1625.

Ezechiell, son of John Stone, bapt. April 27, 1629.

There is a very good account of John Stone, and his son, Rev.
Samuel Stone, in the Memorial History of Hartford County, Conn.,
p. 262-3, part of which is as follows:

John Stone an original proprietor, had an allotment of lands, but
conveyed it to Samuel Stone by gift before 1640. Lechford speaks
of him as "Mr. John Stone, of Hartford," Sept. 16, 1639; removed
to Guilford, where he was one of the signers of the original compact
in 1639. Lands were recorded to John Marsh, Feb. 1639/40; part
whereof did belong to John Stone and were by him given to Sam'l
Stone, and so by the said Sam'l Stone unto John Marsh, of Hart-
ford, and now belongeth to him and his heirs. His home lot was
on the west side of Front St.

Passengers and Ships of the Winthrop Fleet, "Griffin". This
ship of 300 tons arrived Sept. 4, having been eight weeks from the
Downs. She brought about two hundred passengers. Among them
were :

Rev. Samuel Stone of Hertford, County Herts, Cambridge,

Mrs. Stone.

Rebecca Stone.

Mary Stone.

Sarah Stone.

Rev. Samuel Stone, son of John Stone, a freeholder of that place,
was b. in Hertford, Co. Herts (usually at that time sounded Hart-
ford); bapt. July 30, 1602, in the church of All Saints; entered at
Emmanuel Coll., Cambridge, 1620, A.B., 1623; A.M., 1627. Recent
discoveries show that a Samuel Stone, probably this one, was curate
at Stisted, Co. Essex, near Chelmsford, from June 13, 1627 to
Sept. 13, 1630. He came to New England with Cotton, Hooker,
and other men of note, in the ''Griffin," arriving at Boston, Sept.
4, 1633; chosen Teacher of the church at Cambridge, Oct. 11, 1633.
Freeman, Mass., May 14, 1634; removed to Hartford in 1636, where

he was an original proprietor, and in 1639, his home-lot was on the
north bank of the Little River, between those of Rev. Thomas
Hooker and Elder William Goodwin. He served as chaplain to the
troops under Capt. Mason in the Pequot War, 1637. His wife
d. 1640, before Nov. 2 or 3, when Dr. Hooker mentions her death
in a letter to Rev. T. Shepard, saying that she "smoaked out her
days in the darkness of melancholy." He m. (2) before July, 1641,

In 1630, Mr. Stone went as the Puritan Lecturer to the
large town of Towcester, in Northampton, by the commendation of
Thomas Shepard, who had been offered the place, but could not
accept it, and Shepard records that Mr. Stone went to Towcester
to Lecture, "where the Lord was with him, and thus I saw the Lords
mercy following me, to make me a poor instrument of sending the
Gospel to the place of my nativity."

While still in Towcester, Mr. Stone was invited by "the judicious
Christians that were coming to New England with Mr. Hooker" to
be "an assistant unto Mr. Hooker."

In 1633, Rev. John Cotton, Rev. Thomas Hooker, Rev. Samuel
Stone, Mr. Haynes, afterward Governor of Massachusetts and
Connecticut, "a gentleman of great estate (Atheton Hough) and
many other men of good estate, two hundred passengers in all, left
England on the "GrifSin."

The voyage was of eight weeks duration, "the vessel reached
Boston, Sept. 4, 1633, and Mr. Hooker and Mr. Stone went presently
to Newtown, where they were to be entertained, and Mr. Cotton
stayed at Boston."

Oct. 11, 1633, Mr. Winthrop says, "A fast at Newtown, where Mr. Hooker
was chosen pastor and Mr. Stone teacher, in such manner as before in Boston."
He had fully described the event of setting Pastor and Teacher in their places
in the event of settling John Cotton in Boston the day previous. The two offices
of Pastor and Teacher were explained thus, "and for the Teacher and Pastor, the
difference between them lyes in this, that one is principally to attend upon points
of Knowledge and Doctrine, though not without Application; the other to points
of Practice, though not without Doctrine. Both were preachers, but the Pastor's
function as a preacher was to have special reference to the experimental life and
behaviour; the Teacher's rather to dogma and faith. Both had oversight of the
flock, but the Pastor was supposed to be the shepherd and feeder; the Teacher,
the guide and warder. Both were to be vigilant against error; but the Pastor,
chiefly in matters of practice, the Teacher in matters of belief. Both gave their
whole time to the work of the ministry and were supported by the common funds
of the congregation." Later, as these offices were seen to be inevitably the same,
they became merged into one; then Pastor and Teacher were deemed indispen-
sable. "And so the grave, Godly and judicious Hooker, — and the Retoricall
Mr. Stone" entered upon their work.

Newtown proved too small for the two colonies, and in September, 1635, some
moved to Connecticut. May 31, 1636, saw the rest of the Colony on its way to
Hartford, as the place was named in honor of Mr. Stone's native place, Hertford,

May 1, 1637, a "Gen'all Corte att Harteford" was held and the first recorded
iact of the new government was to declare war against the Pequots. Capt. John
Mason of Windsor, Conn., commanded the little army of ninety men, and "Mr.
Stone the Preacher of the Hartford Church went with the men as their Chaplain."
May 26, the Pequot Fort near New London was attacked and several hundred
Indians were killed by sword, bullet and fire."

Capt. Mason, in celebrating the victory, says, "It may not be amiss here also
to Remember Mr. Stone, the famous Teacher of the Church of Hartford, who was
sent to preach and pray with those who went in those engagements against the
Pequots. He lent his best assistance and Counsel in the Management of these
Designs," etc.

The General Coirrt of Hartford afterward gave to "to Mrs. Stone and

her son Samuel Stone, in lieu of a former grant to the husband and father of a
farm for 'his good service to the Country, both in the Pequot War and since,' "
five himdred acres of upland and fifty or sixty acres of meadow.

The Colonial Records say, "The renowned John Mason was Captain of the
army, and Rev. Samuel Stone scarcely less known to fame for his battles ia a dif-
ferent field of strife, was its Chaplain," and this tribute is paid to him. "Mr.
Stone it was who, attending the soldiers as chaplain kept their courage ever high
and holy through pious mindfulness — who went to pray with them as they sailed
as they marched, in fatigue, in pain, and during the perils of a mortal struggle."

His personality seems to have left a very strong impression upon all histor-
ians, as his happy disposition, wit, and brilliancy are often mentioned. The
following extracts from among many give his chief characteristics.

"Samuel Stone — a theological Socrates — a subtle reasoner and great dis-
putant — ingenious, witty, didactic— remarkable for his frequent fastings and
exact Sabbaths" — "a man of principles, and in the management of those prin-
ciples," says Mather, "both a Load Stone and a Flint-Stone." Mrs. Sigourney
says that during the darkness that rested upon the people the first months they
were in Hartford, from cold, lack of proper food, poor dwellings and "terror of
hostile Indians" he "was as a perpetual sunbeam, naturally possessed of great
firmness and cheerfulness — he endeavored to breathe his own spirit into the des-
ponding. In preaching instruction from house to house and visits to the afflicted
he was unwearied. His very countenance and manner had a consoling influence
upon the sorrowful." His cheerfulness and happiness were part of his religion,
as he thought, "many that knew not religion might be led to love it, if they saw
it bringing forth the fruits of daily happiness."

We are told also that he was "amiable, frank, of easy manners, of winning
address, and noted particularly for his pleasantry and wit."

298 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

It was a keen jester indeed that he could not vanquish in repartee. His
society was sought by all and especially by men of ingenious minds, some of whom
visited him for the purpose of having doubts satisfactorily settled, some for the
purpose simply of gathering up the rich stores of his conversation, and some to
provoke and enjoy his wit. He was a kind husband, a fond father, a pure patriot
and one of the sincerest of Christians — so upright, so pubhc spirited, so full of
heart and full of mind as amply to deserve Mather's eulogy of him as "a precious
gem laid deep in the foundations of New England."

"As a preacher he was doctrinal and argumentative, his style was nervous
and he was often eloquent. In appljang his subject he was brief, but pimgent
and remarkable for 'notably digenting in his prayers the doctrines of his discourse. '
He was a great student of theology, and skilled in sacred philology." He seldom
used written sermons, but used to repeat his sermons for the following day, to his
family Saturday evening, both for their benefit and also to get a thorough know-
ledge of his discourse and "enable him by alteration and additions to render it
more lucid, pimgent or practical."

"He was one of the most brilliant and accomplished divines of the new world,
and was alike distinguished for ability as a preacher and controversalist, his
pleasing manner and his wit and eminent social qualities. He was a leader both
in church and state." Of his manuscripts, which he left to his intimate friend.
Rev. John Higginson of Salem, Mass., with instructions to select and print those
he thought suitable for the press, few seem to have been published. His Cate-
chism, an able elaborate treatise entitled "A Body of Divinity," of which there ia
a copy in the Connecticut Historical Society Library; his "Discourse about the
logical notion of a Congregational Church," and his "Confutation of the Antinom-
ians" still exist. He published a volume relating to the Congregational Church in
London in 1652.

His letter announcing the death of Mr. Hooker is in the 4 Mass.
Hist. Coll., VIII, pp. 544-546, also quoted in full in ''Life of Thomas

In public affairs he was very prominent, as "great confidence was
reposed in his judgment, both by the Town of Hartford and by the
General Court, and so we often find him serving upon important
committees and in arbitrations."

He conferred with Sowheag, the powerful Sachem, in regard to
the difficulties at Wethersfield.

The Colonial Records mention Mr. Stone as one of the farmers of
the Constitution of Connecticut, the "mother of the Constitution
of America;" also record his being appointed by the Court "to
amend and perfect the petition to Charles II for a charter for Con-

He also went to England with Governor Winthrop to procure the
old charter. Rev. Samuel Hart says, "The Conn. Charter was given
to Gov. Winthrop and Samuel Stone which practically constituted
Conn., with full consent of England, a free and independent state,
and which sufficed for her government for more than a hundred and
fifty years."

The charter was dated April 23, 1662: the boundaries of Connec-
ticut were "the Mass. line and the sea, and to extend from Narra-
gansett Bay to the Pacific Ocean."

his remaining estate.

Descendants of Stephen Terry

Terry, Eng., a demi-lion ppr., hold-
ing a fleur-de-lis, Gu.

Stephen Terry settled in Dorchester, Mass., where he was
admitted as a freeman May 18, 1631, and held the office of constable.
About 1636, he removed to Windsor, Conn., where he lived for
some years. He was several times a member of the grand jury, and
of the jury of "hfe and death," served on committees for laying out
highways and held the office of constable. About 1660, he removed
to Hadley, Mass., being one of its "first settlers," was the first
constable of the place, and afterwards was a selectman. He was
rated at £200 and had nearly nine acres of land assigned to him.
None of his townsmen were rated higher, but several were rated
the same. He was married in Dorchester, but lost his wife by death,
in Windsor, June, 1647. He died in Hadley, Sept., 1668, leaving a
widow named Elizabeth, and from the fact that she died about
1683, aged about ninety years and their probably relative ages, we
may conjecture that he was born as early as about 1590. Perhaps
Hadley was the name of his native place in England.

Passengers in Winthrop's Fleet, on Ship "Mary and John,"
Thomas Chubb, Master, sailed from Plymouth, England, March
20, 1630, with 140 passengers from the counties of Somerset, Dorset,
and Devon under the patronage of the Reverend John White. She
arrived at Nantasket, May 30, and all the passengers settled at
Mattapan which was renamed Dorchester.
