Reverend Thomas Stoughton

b. 1557 - d. 1622

My Maternal 11th Great Grandfather

Reverend Thomas Stoughton was born in England in 1557.

He married Katherine. Some say her maiden name was Montpeson, but I have yet to find definitive record of the claim.

  Thomas studied at the University of Cambridge, matriculating in 1573 and graduating Bachelor of Arts in 1576 and Master of Arts in 1580 from Queen's College. 

Following his ordination in the chapel of the Bishop of Lincoln in his palace at Buckden, Huntingdonshire in 1582, he became Rector of Naughton from 1586 to 1594.

Involved with the Conference of reformed ministers at Dedham, Essex, he served as assistant minister at Great Burstead, Essex before being presented by Baron Rich to the Vicarage of Coggeshall, Essex in 1600.

By 1603, when his wife Katherine died, she had borne him twelve children.

As one not conforming to the Anglican formulae he was deprived by High Commission of his living in 1606. 

After some time at Great Totham, Stoughton returned to Kent and died there in 1622.
