Stephen Lincoln, along with his wife, son Stephen, and mother Joan, all came to New England from Wyndomham, Norfolk, England, on the Diligent. Stephen's brother Thomas Lincoln, of Hingham, Norfolk, was a passenger on the same ship. The Diligent sailed from Ipswich, Suffolk, England in June and arrived at Boston Harbor on 10 August 1638. Early in the following autumn, Stephen and his family settled in Hingham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Land was granted to Stephen Lincoln upon his arrival. Margaret, the wife of Stephen, died in Hingham, and was buried 13 June, 1642.
Stephen made his will in Hingham on 8 October 1658. In his will, he makes bequests to "Joane Lincolne, widdow, [his] mother," "Susanna Lincolne, daughter to [his] brother Thomas Lincolne," and bequeaths the balance of his estate to his "sonne Steuen Lincolne."
