Thomas Stevenson of London, England and His Descendants
by John Rudderow Stevenson
Edward Stevenson was one of the early settlers in Newtown, Long Island. He was a near relative of Thomas Stevenson of the same place, and was deceased by 1662, as on July 10th of that year the "widow of Edward Stevenson" signed the agreement made by the citizens of Newtown, to pay rent to the Dutch Director-General. Her name was Ann (or Anne), and at some time between the before-mentioned date and 1670, she married William Graves.
Ann Graves' will is dated at Newtown, December 31, 1670. In it she bequeaths to her
daughter, Elizabeth Everitt, a feather bed, a warming pan, an iron plate, a fire shovel, a pair of tongs and a trunk.
All the rest of her estate she leaves to
my two daughters, Elizabeth Everitt and Abigail Denton, and my clothes that were prized by Mr. John Coe and Mr. Jonathan Fish;
