Descendants of Airard FITZ-STEPHENS

18. Generation

29. Anthony STEVENS Baron of WinterBourne (Edward STEPHENS , Henry STEPHENS , John STEPHENS , Thomas STEPHENS , John STEPHENS , John STEPHENS , Richard STEPHENS , John STEPHENS , John Fritz STEPHENS , John , Henry , John , Fitz , Ralph , Ralph , Thomas , Airard ) was born about 1569 in Eastington Church, Glouchestershire, England. He died in 1625.

The evidence tends to prove that B) Anthony Stephens, b. ca 1560 lived near the small town of Hodson in Wiltshire, England and probably descended from Airard Fitz Stephens a nobleman of Normandy in France, who came with William the Conqueror, et al. and conquered England in 1066. Hodson is not on the map now. See Chapter I, Part II and "Stevens Genealogy" by C. Ellis Stevens. However, we do not have the exact link, but our coat of arms is much the same as that of the Norman lines. The authority for the first three generations and the arms is found in Harlien Publications, "Visitations of London, 1634", Vol. II, p. 262. Capitol letters are used in place of personal numbers for those who, so far as known, did not emigrate to America.
B) Anthony1 Stephens, b. ca. 1560, of Wiltshire, England. -m- Kathrine, dau. of Richard Broke, b. ca. 1530. Besides A) Thomas2, a son of Anthony and Cathrine (also Kathrine), was probably 6)Capt. Richard Stevens (or Stephens), immigrant to the Jamestown Colony in the George in 1623.
The main evidence is in our family records and the fact that 1) Nicholas Stevens (he changedthe spelling) was present at meetings to settle the estate of Carolina governor Samuel Stevens, son of Capt. Richard. - (Ray's Old Albemarle, p. 568). It is not certain whether 6) Capt. Richard was a brother or cousin of A) Thomas.
