Biography

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 descendant of David Stout and great (2) grandson 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:

  1. James m. Catherine Simpson
  2. Freegift m. Mary Higgins, daughter of Jediah and Mary Newbold Higgins
  3. David m. Anne Merrill
  4. Joseph m. (1) Mary Ashland, (2) Martha Reeder
  5. Benjamin m. (1) Widow Ketcham (2) Mary Higgins, daughter of Jediah and Hannah Stout Higgins
  6. Rebecca m. John Manners
  7. Sarah never married
  8. Deliverance m. Francis Labaw [6] [7]

Of their descendants Caleb, son of James, 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]

Research notes

Following is research that establishes that Sarah Stout (born Parker) was not a wife of David Stout, son of Richard and Penelope Stout. and that

Sarah Stout (born Parker) was not the wife of David Stout, son of Richard I and Penelope Kent Van Princin Stout, because: 1. All profiles for the Sarah Parkers in Wikitree in the time period 1667 +/- 5 years were born in Masschusetts.

2. His great (2) grandson, Nathan Stout had written on one side of his tombstone his ancestral line. Only Rebecca Ashton is named as David's wife. Nathan also wrote and closes the part of the book he completed with that ancestral line. [9]

3. Sarah Parke, daughter of William and Sarah Jewell Parke, married David Stout, son of Jonathan and Mary Leigh Stout. See profile Parke-58

Penelope Falkinburg (born Stout) was not either with a source that supports Wikitree standards.

1. Penelope Stout, daughter of Richard II and Frances Heath Stout, married Henry Jacobs Falkinburg in 1732.[10]

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with David by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with David:

Stout-5103 and Stout-115 appear to represent the same person because: same name, exact same spouse, same birth year, same father, same death year. birth and death location not specified in one profile.

Stout-5103 and Stout-115 do not represent the same person because: Difference in mother's LNAB and other name. He is a full brother to attached siblings.

With this source method one is taken directly to the source and glean other information about the person. What is important about sources is not the method but that the information/source may be seen by others.

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?
posted by Greg Hays
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.
