Previous to the death of Henry Stephens in 1726 his son appears on the records as Henry Stephens, Junior, but afterward he ceased to use the Junior and wrote his name Henry Stephens. The above deed was signed by Henry Stephesn of the Second Generation, and was to his son, Simeon, who is thus of the Third Generation.
Simeon remained at Stonington.
