  • Notes 
    • Barton Stone, son of Matthew and Rachel (Smoot) Stone, was born in Durham Parish, Charles County, Maryland. On June 11, 1750, he deeded to John Stone a portion of "Poynton Manor", at which time no wife waived her dower rights. On August 8, same year, he conveyed to John Stone for the consideration of 5 and 4,000 pounds of tobacco another portion of the manor, being the 75 acres which had been deeded to Captain William Watts by Matthew Stone.

      In 1759 Barton Stone signed the inventory papers of his mother's personal estate as the next of kin. On February 14, 1778, before the "Worshipful Richard Barnes" in Charles County he took the Oath of Allegiance and Fidelity to the State of Maryland.4 Some time after this date he and his family settled in Stafford County, Virginia, near the town of Falmouth.

      His wife was Sarah, the daughter of Thomas Speake, who shared in her father's will, probated November 12, 1766, in Charles County.

He bequeathed to his son Hawkins 1,000 pounds of tobacco, to his son Richard six negroes, and the like amount of negroes to his daughters Anne Philips and Sarah Stone. He also bequeathed negroes to his grandsons Barton Speake Stone and William Barton Stone. The residue of the estate was devised to his son William who was named as executor.
