David Stout, son of Richard I and Penelope Kent Van Princin Stout, born 1667 in Middletown, Monmouth County, NJ. He married Rebecca Ashton, daughter of James and Deliverance Throckmorton Ashton in 1688 born 1672 in Providence, Rhode Island. [1] and died April 1732 as shown on the monument of Capt Nathan Stout, a direct ancestor of David Stout and wrote "The History of the Stout Family."[2]

They first settled on Hop River and about 1725 moved to Amwell Township then sold everything and moved there before the death of his son James Stout. When he died he was buried on his farm and it became a burying place for many of his descendants and today is called Stout-Manners Cemetery located in Ringoes, Hunterdon County, NJ. [3] [4] [5] They were the parents of James m. Catherine Simpson, Freegift m. Mary Higgins, daughter of Jediah and Mary Newbold Higgins, David m. Anne Merrill, Joseph m. (1) Mary Ashland, (2) Martha Reeder, Benjamin m. (1) Widow Ketcham (2) Mary Higgins, daughter of Jediah and Hannah Stout Higgins, Rebecca m. John Manners, Sarah never married and Deliverance m. Francis Labaw [6] [7]

Of their descendants Caleb, son of James, and Abner and Job, sons of Joseph emigrated to Western Virginia. After page forty-five of Russell Ray Stout's book there is a discussion of the Stout Coat of Arms and line graph's of all of their descendants who left New Jersey and went west. [8]

Penelope Stout is David Stout's mother, and Richard Stout is his father.

Elizabeth Bee is the wife of Richard Stout's father, John Stout.

There is a lot of documentation for David and the Stout family.

What is the "UNCONFIRMED ANCESTOR, CONFLICTING INFORMATION"? The bio looks like it has gone thru some merges without cleanup. In the mixed narratives, I see Penelope van Princis listed as spouse and mother and Elizabeth Bee as his mother. Is this the conflict?

Michelle, he will not be a New Netherland Project profile, because his birth is after 1664 in New Jersey, under British rule. The area of New Jersey, especially this area of East Jersey, was, I think, a wilderness nominally under control by the Dutch through September 1664, and then under British rule until the October 1674 ceding of all territory by the Dutch to the Brits.

However, this region of East Jersey was under contention in that final decade through three major wars. In any event, I think we have determined that we are excluding New Jersey profiles from NNS for any births in New Jersey after Sep. 1664.

There were a lot of Dutch settlers who moved over to Jerey from Long Island, perhaps in the battles of population settlement control. But the Sept. 1664 seems a good cutoff.
