George Stone was a wealthy Banker and Stockholder of Virginia Land Company of London, formed to settle colonies in Virginia.
He is considered the Father of all Virginia Stone's. George has been noted as being an Honest man, religious, and a good citizen. He came to Jamestown in 1620 and married Mary Vernon in 1635.
George Stone was born in Northamptonshire, England and he died in Jamestown, VA. USA, Notations in various family histories have George as 22 years of age when he arrived to the colonies (have not yet found the exact date, location of arrival or what ship he arrived on to the USA, one account states the name of the ship was Beauty, (cannot find as of yet any records for this ship in 1620 or any ship by this name) He married Mary Vernon b 1600 d 1668 Lancaster, V A USA, some accounts he married her in Virginia others in England and that she was pregnant when they arrived in the colonies with their son John Stone who was born soon after arrival in 1620 ( this can also be hard to imagine if you are familiar with documentations of what it was like to sail in those times, Mary must have been a very strong and healthy person to made such a journey, in the late stages of pregnancy, not saying that this is impossible mind you but rare in those days. The diets aboard ship was not something you could get modern time young people to eat much less drink stale rancid water, have read where many people during this time drank beer in fear of the water, they though beer nutritious, but a lot of the passengers arrived to their destinations with rotting teeth and very bad breath, Could it have been the beer? And what about pregnancy and alcohol?) ( I figure if John Stone was born in 1620, that it was unlikely that George Stone arrived in 1620 in Virginia, married Mary Vernon and had John all in the same year. More is needed on Mary Vernon to establish this time line.)
George STONE was born in 1597. He died in 1670. "Evidence points to
this George as the one who came to America and was the start of our Stone
family here." "George Stone came to America in 1620 with his three
brothers, all young men. They located in the site of the famous Bull Run
Battlefield in Virginia. George remained in Va. his three brothers went
west." -Joey Koon-Walker (either her own words or from the book; "A History
of the Stone Family who settled in the South" by Martha Jane Stone of
