Biography

Elizabeth was born to John and Anne Stockbridge around January of 1640.[1] Elizabeth's parents had arrived in New England in 1635.[2] Her birthplace is unknown but was probably in Boston. She was baptized there on July 10, 1642 at the First Church at two years old.[1][3]

Elizabeth married Thomas Hyland (also spelled Hiland or Hilland) in Scituate, Massachusetts in January of 1661 or 1662.[1][4]

Thomas had several children but there are no sources to confirm that Elizabeth was their mother. These children were all registered as children of Thomas Hiland but their mother's name was not recorded. No other marriages have been discovered for Thomas so it may be safe to assume that his children were also Elizabeth's unless further information comes to light. That would give Elizabeth at least five children: Thomas (1663), Elizabeth (1665), Mary (1667), John (1670/1671), and Ruth (1673). [5][6][7]

There are no sources to confirm when or where Elizabeth died.

There is a baptism record for Elizabeth in Boston which explains why she was baptized in Boston not Scituate. Her parents were opposed to baptism by immersion which was the only method of baptism available at their church in Scituate at that time. For further information, see article, Descendants of John Stockbridge by Roger Joslyn, FASG, in NEHGR vol.133 pp 93-101. The author is currently one the Editors of TAG (The American Genealogist).

Stockbridge-228 and Stockbridge-1 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicates.

A merge has been proposed previously for Stockbridge-1 and Stockbridge- 228, but apparently was never approved. They are clearly duplicates. There are some minor differences, but can reconciled using Anderson's Great Migrations. I intend to again propose a merge. Comments?

Stockbridge-1 and Stockbridge-229 appear to represent the same person because: My Elizabeth Stockbridge Hyland does not have a source and is unconnected. I don't think she's real! The only one of her children that has a source is Ruth, and her source only mentions the father, Thomas.

Stockbridge-228 and Stockbridge-1 are almost certainly the same person, but they are connected to different mothers. Let's figure out what to do with the mothers' profiles before merging this woman's duplicate profiles.

•The New England Historical and Genealogical Register LXXI 1917 Stockbridge-Hatch: Correction. — In the Register, vol. 70, p. 260 (July 1916), Elizabeth Stockbridge is recorded as the first child of John Stockbridge of Scituatc in the Plymouth Colony by his second wife, Elizabeth (Hatch) Soan, and is said (on the authority of Deane's History of Scituatc, p. 342) to have been born in 1644. John Stockbridge and the Widow Soan were married at Scituate, 9 Oct. 1643. An examination of Boston Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, 1630-1699, p. 14, clearly shows that Elizabeth Stockbridge was the daughter of John by his first wife, Anne , and was baptized in the First Church, Boston, 10 July 1642, "aged about 2 yrs 6 mos." She married at Scituate, 1 Jan. 1661/2, Thomas Hyhmd. There were but two children born to John Stockbridge by his second wife, vim, Sarah and Hester, whose baptisms are recorded in Scituate. S Concord Avenue, Cambridge, Mass. Lawrence Brainerd. •From the Great Migration, page 538, "Elizabeth the daughter of Anne Stockbridge a member of the old church that was at Situate and wife to one John Stockbridge of the same being of the age of about 2 years and a half old, was (upon a certificate and under the hand of Mr Charles Chauncy, pastor of the church that now is at Situate) baptized with the consent of the church, they the said John Stockbridge and Anne his wife promising in the face of the church, to bring up their said child under the ordinances of Christ, in some church gathered and ordered according to Christ"
