George STOVALL (Stoffold, Stovold, Stoval, Stovell, Stowell, Stobbold).2019

Born about 1623 at Albury, Surrey, England; son of George STOVALL and Margaret FARLEY. Although his birth and baptismal records are not known, he is connected to his father through brother William's Will.

He married Joane TICKNER before October 15, 1653, when Joan's mother, Millicent Tickner, filed a claim on a cottage and garden after the death of her husband, Bartholomew. The lord of the manor of Albury granted her copyhold tenure of the property to be past on to her heirs after her death.

She died after getting the property, and it was turned over to George and Joan. Due to financial difficulties, they were unable to pay a "fine" or fee for permission to enter upon the land, and it was turned back over to the lord of the manor. George was also fined for failing to attend the lord's manor court, a standard duty for one who was a copyright tenant (Oct. 7, 1657, Apr. 19, 1659, Apr. 29, 1661 & Oct. 19, 1663).

George and Joan possibly became Quakers. According to record from the Church of England they did not attend church for over 3 months (Easter 1661 term of Surrey Quarter Sessions-criminal court of the county). The sheriff's response to the 5 separate writs on April 1661 indicates that he could not find George. George was cited on Easter Term of 1662 and also on April 28, 1663 for not attending. Throughout all this, there's no record he was punished for the offenses. At that time, the Church of England was the only recognized church in England and attendance was mandatory.

ALBURY PARISH RECORDS, George lived in Albury parish according to the hearth tax roll of Albury, dated Lady Day (March 25, 1664) with one hearth assessed from him.

He died in NOV 1665. Despite possible Quaker beliefs, he was buried in Albury on November 8, 1665-6 with all rites of the Church of England.
