Robert STONER (c1660-1704)

and Elizabeth BEEDLE (1657-1717)


Robert Stoner and Elizabeth Beedle married on 12 June 1684 in Woodmancote, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Robert Stoner's date and place of birth are unknown, to me.  He was buried, or his death was registered, on 13 May 1704 in Woodmancote.

Elizabeth Bidill was born on 4 March 1657 and baptised on 21 March 1657 in Woodmancote, Sussex.  She was the daughter of William Bidill and Mary.  As Elizabeth Stoner, widow she married Richard Chatfield on 9 February 1713/4 in Woodmancote.  She was buried on 22 August 1717 in Woodmancote, as Elizabeth wife of Richard Chatfield.


Robert Stoner and Elizabeth Beedle had 9 known children:

  1. Mary Stoner was baptised on 25 July 1685 in Woodmancote.

    A marriage licence was issued on 24 July 1708 by the Archdeaconry of Chichester in respect of Thomas Vaughan a cordwainer and Mary Stoner a spinster.  They were both of Woodmancote.

  2. John Stoner's birth and death was registered in the Woodmancote baptism and burial registers on 1 April 1687.

  3. Thomas Stoner was buried on 8 February 1687/8 in Woodmancote.  The burial register noted that he was the son of Robert and Elizabeth.

  4. William Stoner was baptised on 20 February 1689/90 in Woodmancote.  He married Ann Gratwick in 1715.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Elizabeth Stoner was baptised on 6 March 1691/2 in Woodmancote.

  6. Susannah Stoner was baptised on 5 May 1694 in Woodmancote.  As Susan Stoner daughter of Robert, she was buried on 4 July 1697 in Woodmancote.

  7. John Stoner was baptised on 4 November 1696 in Woodmancote.

    John may have married Jane Cousens on 19 November 1739 in Woodmancote, although I think this should have been 1738.

    Jane Stoner was buried on 2 April 1739 in Cowfold.

    John and Jane had the following child:

    1. Mary Stoner was baptised on 22 April 1739 in Cowfold.  She may have been buried in Cowfold on 16 March 1739/40.  The burial register only records Mary Stoner was buried and gives no other information.

  8. Anne Stoner was baptised on 27 December 1698 in Woodmancote.

  9. Thomas Stoner was baptised on 9 February 1700/1 in Woodmancote.  He married Mary sometime before or about 1733 and they settled in Cowfold, Sussex.  (They have their own page.)
