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]
