JOHN STOUTE &
Return to Family Index
THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
John Stoute was born about 1580 (maybe 1584) in Nottinghamshire,
England. The birth date and place is given online
at Stout Original Ancestors. However no documentation
is given with it. His parents are given as Thomas Stoute
(Staught) and Sarah LNU.
The Nottinghamshire Marriages 1528-1929 state that John
Stout wed Elsabeth Bee in 1609 in Burton Joyce in
an Anglican service. Burton Joyce is a lovely tranquil
village on the rail line into Nottingham, and on the Trent
River The church of St Helen dates in part from
the 13th century and was rebuilt in 1878.
It is reported in many places that John died by 1620 and maybe as
early as 1618. I can only find one child contributed to this
couple. There may be more, but I need documentation.
The one that is repeated in a variety of places including Find
a Grave under John Stoute is
1. Richard Stout - born in Burton Joyce maybe 1610 but by 1618.
There is a story on-line that Richard Stout had a falling
out with his father, so Richard enlisted in the British
Navy. After serving about 7 years he was discharged in New
Amsterdam (New York) and granted Dutch citizenship about
Well, if his father died before he was 8 that story makes no
sense. However, I believe the stories that get past down
have a kernel of truth - if it can be found. I don't know
what happened to Elizabeth after John died, but
perhaps she married again and it was Richard's step father
he had an argument with, or perhaps his mother. The story is
the parent wanted him to marry someone he did not want to
There is no known documentation for the deaths of either John
or Elizabeth, - only what is stated in Find a Grave and
on a Dutch website: ie John died 1618 or 1620
and Elizabeth died 1685, with no mention of her
remarrying. No information about where they died either.
