Thomas Stoughton was the only son of FrancisB, the short-lived son of a Kentish gentleman named EdwardC Stoughton by Edward’s first wife Mary Exhurst, daughter of Richard Exhurst. The Stoughton family was the subject of a monograph based on the research of Ethel Stokes of London, but that work did not explore Mary Exhurst’s medieval ancestry.[1]

He would have been at least 21 years of age.

  5. [S301] Adrian Benjamin Burke, John Blythe Dobson and Janet Chevalley Wolfe, "The Exhurst Ancestry of the Stoughton Siblings", Using contemporary accounts of the Exhurst family, we present evidence that Richard Exhurst’s first wife Alice was the daughter of Richard and Alice (Brudenell) Waller and that Richard Exhurst’s second wife Joan Roberts was the mother of Mary (Exhurst) Stoughton. Joan’s father Walter Roberts had three wives over a period of nearly sixty years: Margaret Penn, Isabel Culpepper, and Alice Naylor. We review the ancestry of Walter Roberts and his three wives and present evidence concerning the chronology of Walter’s marriages and the identification of Joan’s mother.
