What We Know

 

We know only bits and pieces of this family, which was obviously prolific, and whose sons and daughters engaged in various activities. John's parents John Stacey and Eleanor (she was Eleanor Pitman according to unsubstantiated information obtained at the Familysearch site), descended from families who were both in Marblehead from the original days. (LDS also gives his parents as Hugh Stacey and Margaret as can be seen in the alternate record below -- I believe Hugh and Margaret may be grandparents or even grandparents. A genealogical article for Michael Cowes gives information about Mrs. Eleanor Stacey, so although I have no confirmation of her last name, I think she is the reasonable choice for his mother.

 

 

He married Agnes Pederick, the oldest daughter of John and Miriam Pedrick, and together they had eleven known children, all of whom lived to adulthood and at least most of whom had families of their own. John was a deacon, as we learn from his probate record, as was his son Samuel.Son John was a mariner, his title listed as "captain" on his probate record. Son Ebenezer was a merchant.

Daughter Grace married fisherman Thomas Owens, and daughter Sarah married a "cooper" Eleazar Ingalls.

Deaths of Some of the Family Members

The death records for this family are sporadic (and mostly not available). Of interest is the way that the name spelling has changed. "Stasey" had "migrated" to various spellings a couple of generations later.

Tombstone of John Stasey

 

From Essex Institute Historical Collections, Volume 47, By Essex Institute, Peabody Essex Museum Marblehead in the Year 1700 No. 5, pages 80 - 81:

Capt. John Stacey House. This lot was a part of the lot of Mrs. Eleanor Stacey of Marblehead, and she conveyed it to her son John's son John Stacey Nov 16, 1680. This grantee was Capt. John Stacey, and he built a house on the lot, dying, possessed of the estate, Oct. 19, 1722 at the age of forty-eight. The estate remained in the possession of the heirs of Captain Stacey until the house was gone, which was before May 3, 1825, when the land was sold, it being this lot "on which lately stood an old dwelling house." This was the Bunch of Grapes Tavern in 1757.
