Mark Stebbing and Mary Rust
Mark Stebbing was the son of Thomas Stebbing and Ellen --. Mark married Mary Rust. Mary was the daughter of Edward Rust and Mary --. Mark was mentioned in his father's 26 December 1603 will. Both Mark and Mary were mentioned in Mary's father's 26 December 1594 will.
Mark and Mary and their son Edward were mentioned in a court record of 22 May 1632. The record states that a Joseph Mann surrendered land in Braintree, Essex, England in 1613 to the use of Mark and Mary, then to Edward and his heirs. However, later, Mark and Mary and another son Thomas surrendered this land to the use of Robert Kellog and his heirs.
A transcribed will for a Mark Stebbynge of Layforde (dated 10 April 1633) has been posted online but, unfortunately, no sources were given for it, so confirmation is needed.
Williamís children are:
- Denise Stebbing, mentioned in both of her grandfathers' wills.
- Edward Stebbing, mentioned in the 1632 court record as having land surrendered to his parents, then to Edward and his heirs in 1613. Possibly the Edward Stebbins (see note below) who married Frances Tough (daughter of Ralph Tough of Burrough-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire, England, married 1) Sampson Chester 26 Nov 1617 at St. Ann Blackfriars, London, London, England and 2) Thomas Smith 25 Feb 1627/8 at St. Mary Magdalen church, Bermondsey, Surrey, England, will dated 20 May 1670 (codicil 12 Nov 1673) and proved 20 Jan 1673/4, inventory taken 23 Dec 1673) about 1629, arrived in New England about 1632-3 and first settled at Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, oath of allegiance there in 1633, admitted freeman 14 May 1634, moved to Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut in 1636, a deacon in Hartford, deputy from Hartford to the Connecticut General Court a number of dates between 11 Apr 1639 to 2 October 1656 and held a number of public offices, will dated 24 Aug 1663 and proved 3 Sep 1668, inventory taken 19 Aug 1668.
- Thomas Stebbing, mentioned in the 1632 court record as having, along with his parents, surrendered land that had been surrendered to the use of Mark and Mary, then brother Edward.
- Possibly Editha Stebbins (see note below), "either accompanied or followed [brother Edward] to New England" (TAG 30:197), married 1) Robert Day (b. abt. 1604, married 1) Mary --, came to New England in 1634 on the Elizabeth in 1634, settled first at Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, admitted freeman 6 May 1635, will written 20 May 1648, inventory taken 14 Oct 1648), 2) John Maynard (arrived in New England about 1634, granted land in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts 4 Aug 1634, moved to Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut in 1636, surveyor of highways several times 1641/2-1655/6, will dated 23 Jan 1657/8, inventory taken 24 Feb 1657/8, and 3) Eleazar Holyoke (bp. 4 May 1617 at St. Lawrence Jewry, London, London, England, the son of Edward and Prudence (Stockton) Holyoke, m. 1) Mary Pynchon 20 Nov 1640, d. 6 Feb 1675/6 in Springfield, Hampden, Massachusetts), moved to Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut by 1639, died 24 Oct 1688 in Springfield, Hampden, Massachusetts. Editha was definitely the sister of the Edward Stebbins who married Frances Tough.
Note about Edward and Editha: Both Mark and his brother William had sons named Edward but there are no known records of a daughter named Editha for either Mark or William, so it is difficult to tell which couple were the parents of Edward and Editha. Hopkins, in his Kellogg genealogy, seemed to favor Mark and Mary as Edward and Editha's parents but Great Migration Begins (GMB) states that Edward and Editha were probably the children of William. GMB seems to have relied on Coddington's articles in TAG vol. 31 for this information, which only states that Coddington found two records of a Mark Stubbing who was not likely Edward and Editha's father but does not account for the record cited by Hopkins. Therefore, I have not conclusively eliminated either Mark or William as the father.

Hopkins's The Kelloggs in the Old World and the New
7. MARTIN,2 son of Phillippe,1 bap. in Great Leighs, 23 Nov., 1.59.5 ; m. in St. Michael's Bishop's Stortford, County Hertford, 22 Oct., 1621. Prudence Bird, dau. of John Bird, of Bishop's Stortford.
She d. before 20 May, 1671, as her name does not appear in his will.
He d. in Braintree, England, between 20 May, 1671, when his will was made, and 20 Sept., same year, when it was proved.
He was a weaver or cloth worker and res. in Great Leighs and Braintree. Although in the record of his marriage in 1621, he was called of Great Leighs, it may be that he did not reside in Great Leighs immediately after his marriage, as he had a son, John (the record of baptism has not been found), who had a son who was five years old in 1648, as appears in the Manorial Court Records. The last that is positively known of his being in Great Leighs was when his son, Daniel, was bap. 6 Feb., 1630. On 22 May, 1632, he and his wife received the surrender of a tenement in Braintree, as appears in the Court Rolls of the Manor of Braintree :
"Whereas at the Court on Monday in Easter week 11 James 1 A.D. 1613, Joseph Mann surrendered one acre and a half of land, parcel of a croft called Harfold's croft, lying at Minche's Oak on which same land a messuage had been lately built. To the use of Mark Stebbing and Mary his wife for their lives, and then to Edward Stebbing** their son and his heirs. Now Mark, Mary and Edward are admitted.
"Afterwards the said Mark, Mary and Edward and Thomas Stebbing, another son, surrendered all their right in the aforesaid premises after the death of Mary Read, formerly wife of Michael Mann, to the use of Robert Kellog and his heirs and the same Robert is admitted.
"Afterwards Robert Kellogg surrendered one tenement in the occupation of the said Thomas Stebbing and two small cottages to the same adjoining part of the property which the said Robert purchased of Edward and Thomas Stebbing, to the use and on behoof of Martin Kellogg and Prudence, his wife, and the heirs of the said Martin forever which same Martin and Prudence are admitted."
**Deacon Edward Stebbins was in Cambridge, Mass., 1633; an original proprietor of Hartford in 1636.
