I am attempting to find information about these ancestors. John was born in England in 1830, and married Hannah JONES of Hockley in Essex. She was of Welsh extraction and was born in 1838. My guess is that John came from Essex, too, but I have no documentation. They immigrated to the US sometime prior to 1885, and some of their numerous offspring were born in England, others in the US. Among their children was Hannah Elizabeth STOCK, my great-grandmother. I'd greatly appreciate any information on STOCKs in Essex.
