                                    (The Stow Line)
      Stow or Stowe, as a surname, is of local origin, and refers to one of the parishes "pf Stow or Stowe," in England. The names derive from the Anglo-Saxon and Middle English stow, meaning "place." In the Hundred Rolls of 1273 are listed Baldwin de Stow, of County Cambridge, and Warin de Stowe, Fulk de Stow and Oda de Stow, of Country Lincoln.
      John Stow, of who further, is believed to have been a grandson of Thomas Stow (brother of John Stow, the famous antiquary, chronicler of the Kings f England, and surveyor of the city of London) and his wife Margaret, and a great-grandson of Thomas Stow (tallow chandler of St. Michaels Parish, Cornhill London) and his wife Elizabeth

  Notes for JOHN STOWE:
John, Baptized at Biddenden, Oct. 10, 1619. Emigrated with his parents to New England in 1634, probably died in Concord, Mass. about Sept. 1663. It is believed that he never married. In 1660 he gave to the Grammar School at Roxbury, three acres of land in "the Great Lots" "to clear his house," which probably referred to a pledge of the householders in Roxbury to contribute a stated sum annually toward the support of the school, in lieu of this he elected to furnish property which would produce annually the amount of his pledge, thus clearing his house of the encumbrance. Later, in the School Report is shown the income from that property. from "Ancestry and Some of the Descendants of Capt. Stephen Stowe of Milford, Conn." Collected by Nathan Stowe, 1924 pg 5 & 6

John Stowe and Elizabeth (Bigge) Stowe, his wife, the emigrants to New England, had a second son and sixth child, John Stowe, baptized at Biddenden, co. Kent, 10 Oct. 1619, who emigrated with his parents to New England in 1634, and of whom it is said in the "Register" vol.710, p.348, that he "probably d.s.p. before Sept. 1653, when his brothers and sisters joined with their cousins,m the children of Patience (Bigge) Foster, in collecting the legacies left them by their uncles, Smalehope and John Bigge, in England." It is now possible to state that John Stowe died comparatively young and unmarried, at Croanbrook, between 28 Sept. and 2 Dec. 1643, aged 24. His will, mentioning relatives both in Kent and in New England, follows.
