The Stallion/Stallon alias Butler Family

The Stallion/Stallon alias Butler Family:
 
First Generation
 
1.  Thomas Stallion/Stallon [alias Butler]12 was born circa 1509 in Harlow, Essex, England.1,3 alternate date: 1515 He died in Aug 1556 at the age of 47 in Harlow, Essex, England.1,3 The surname Stallon is a corruption of the place name Stalham, a parish in Norfolk. The derivation of the name is "ham by a stall or pool." There were several shallow pools in the area. Thomas Stallon's parentage is unproven, but a John Stallon and Bennet Howe [or de Hoo] of Foxearth, Essex, not far from Hallow, are likely candidates. Bennet was the daughter of William Howe of Foxearth, who left his lands to her. Howe died in 1516.
The Stallons resided in Harlow, Essex, England. Thomas evidently ran a shop of some sort based on his will. Stallon bequeathed to his son John an astrolabe, a quadrant and an anemometer suggesting that he may have been a sea captain, or associated closely with the seafaring trade. He may also have been an amateur astronomer.

Thomas and Elizabeth had three children: John [b. 1532], Alice [b. 1537] and Thomas [b. 1541].

Thomas made his will on 5 August 1556 at Harlow. He requested to be buried in the Harlow churchyard. To eldest son John he left "my chest standing at London and that which is in it," an anemometer, his great written book with a boarded cover that Isaac wrote, a quadrant, a great astrolabe that hung over the sphere in the hall, 20 marks, the lease on the moor and Park Land in the parish of Latton following the decease of wife Elizabeth and a house in Harlow called Harlowes. To son Thomas his press, jack, shears, cutting board, clock, joined chest in the shop, a box of iron, 20 marks, and the lease on Brome Lees in Latton following the death of wife Elizabeth. To daughter Alice, a great chest in the chamber, a little coffer with two bottoms,
a brazen mortar, 20 marks, a feather bed, honest apparel for a chamber at her mother's appointment. John and Thomas were to receive their bequests within a year of their father's death, Alice two years after, or upon her marriage. Should any of the children die before inheriting, his or her share would be divided equally between the survivors. Thomas made several other bequests, including one to his brother, John. All property was willed to Elizabeth until her death or remarriage. Elizabeth was named sole executrix.

Thomas Stallion/Stallon [alias Butler] and Elizabeth [Stallion] were married circa 1531 in Harlow, Essex, England.1 Elizabeth [Stallion]4 was born circa 1513 in Harlow, Essex, England.5 alternate date: 1520 She died on 15 Sep 1557–26 Aug 1559 at the age of 44 in Harlow, Essex, England.3 Elizabeth's will was made on 16 September 1557 and proved on 26 April 1559. It is believed that she died closer to the date of her will.
In her will, Elizabeth made bequests to the following individuals: son John, daughter-in-law Agnes Stallon, John's daughter Alice,
  John's sons Zachary, Samuel and Christopher, son Thomas, daughter Alice Knyght and son-in-law Thomas Knyght. John and Thomas Stallon were named executors.
 
Thomas Stallion/Stallon [alias Butler] and Elizabeth [Stallion] had the following child:
 
              2              i.   Thomas Stallion/Stallon [alias Butler], born ca 1540, Harlow, Essex, England; married Joan Delow/Delowe, 24 Apr 1567, Holy Trinity Church, Littleburg, Essex, England; died 13 Sep 1587–25 May 1590, Latton, Essex, England.
 
Second Generation
 
2.  Thomas Stallion/Stallon [alias Butler]67 (Thomas-1) was born circa 1540 in Harlow, Essex, England.1 He died on 13 Sep 1587–25 May 1590 at the age of 47 in Latton, Essex, England.1 Thomas Stallon alias Butler and Joan Delow lived at Latton, two miles from Harlow following their marriage in 1565. They had the following children baptized at St. Mary's in Latton: Thomas [21 August 1567], John [26 August 1568], twins Jone/Joan and Alice [1573],* Robert [12 November 1574] and William [31 August 1580]. Eldest son, Emmanuel was born about 1565.
Thomas was apparently a prosperous businessman with rental property. He also farmed.

In 1560, Thomas received a cottage in the Wood of Harlow from his brother John who was residing at Clavering. The cottage had been left to John by their mother.

Thomas was twice fined for having two tenants in one house, which violated manor court order.

Stallon alias Butler made his will on 13 September 1587. He left Joan the "lease house where I now dwell, with all lands, meadows, pastures, yards, orchards, gardens, ponds," the 2½ acres lying on the road from Harlow to Roydon being let by his brother-in-law Nicholas Sybley. The land was to revert to his sons upon their mother's death or immediately should she remarry. Joan was to receive assorted household items as well. Son Emmanuel was bequeathed much of his father's clothing and personal items. Son Thomas was to have his father's tools and related items as well as some clothing. Son John was to have a variety of household items and clothing. Sons Robert and William received similar bequests. The sons also were willed various properties. The will was proved at Stortford on 25 May 1590.

Twin daughters Alice and Joan were not mentioned in the will. They undoubtedly predeceased their father.

Emmanuel became a haberdasher in London. Joan remarried following Thomas' death to Robert? Walet.
