Thomas Stebbing and Ellen --

Thomas Stebbing married Ellen --. Ellen had married first -- Kellogg.

Thomas was mentioned in the will of his niece, Elizabeth Stebbing, who made him her executor and directed that a sum of money from her estate was to be distributed to "the poorest of Black Notley...at the discretion of the minister and my uncle Thomas Stebbing..." She also mentioned that the remainder of her money in the hands of a cousin Thomas and uncle Thomas should be used for her burial.

Thomas's will was dated 26 December 1603. He was a husbandman and a resident of Black Notley, Essex, England. Thomas was buried 21 January 1603/4 at Saints Peter and Paul's church, Black Notley, Essex, England.
Ellen was buried 26 January 1606/7 at Saints Peter and Paul's church, Black Notley, Essex, England.

Ellen's son, by her first husband, is:

  1. Phillip Kellogg, mentioned in his stepfather's will, along with his daughter Annys and son Robert.

Thomas and Ellenís children are (assuming that Ellen was the mother of all (or any) of Thomas's children):

  1. Mark Stebbing, married Mary Rust (daughter of Edward and Mary Rust), mentioned in his father's will (along with his daughter Denise (Dennys)), mentioned in a court record of 22 May 1632 (along with his wife Mary and sons Edward and Thomas), his will is said to have been written 10 April 1633 (but confirmation is needed).
  2. Elizabeth Stebbins, married John Lawson (d. bef. 26 Dec 1603) 10 Sep 1583 at Saints Peter and Paul's church, Black Notley, Essex, England, mentioned in her father's will, along with her husband and unnamed children.
  3. William Stebbing, married -- --, mentioned in his father's will, along with his children Ellen, Amy, and Thomas, resided in Black Notley, Essex, England, probably moved from Black Notley after March 1603/4, may have been the William Stebbing mentioned in the Vestry Book at Braintree, Essex, England 6 September 1619.
  4. Mathewe Stebbing, mentioned in his father's will.
  5. Henry Stebinge, mentioned in his father's will.
  6. Perhaps Dennis Stebbing (female), buried 19 November 1590 at Saints Peter and Paul's church, Black Notley, Essex, England. She was listed as "the daughter of Thomas Stebbing" in her burial record. However, as there is a record of another Thomas in that town who was buried there in 1600 (see below), who could be her father, brother, or other relative.
  7. Perhaps Thomas Stebing, buried 1 Sep 1600 at Saints Peter and Paul's church, Black Notley, Essex, England. However, as no relationship to our Thomas is stated in his burial record, he could also be another type of kinsman.



The Brother of Thomas Stebbing

Thomas had at least one brother whose name is not known. This brother had the following children:
  1. Elizabeth Stebbing, will dated 20 January 1584/5 and proved 15 Feb 1584/5, requested in her will to be buried in the churchyard in Twinstead, Essex, England, mentioned her uncle Thomas Stebbing.
  2. John Stebbing, forgiven of debts to Elizabeth in her will.
  3. William Stebbing, mentioned in sister Elizabeth's will as her younger brother.

In addition, Elizabeth Stebbing mentions another family member:
  1. Thomas Stebbing, of Great Henny, Essex, England, probably married -- -- (also mentioned by Elizabeth in her will but not named). She called him "my cousin." However, at this time, cousin was a more general term, meaning "kinsman or kinswoman," and may not necessarily mean a first cousin. Therefore, it is not known if this Thomas was the son of our Thomas, the son of another brother of Thomas, or a kinsman of an unspecified relationship.
