About Elizabeth Stone
From "The Stone Family of England, Virginia, and Maryland, Part One (Ancestors and Descendants of Governor William Stone of Maryland)":
1. William Stone de Twiste.
William Stone (also written William Stones), was apparently associated with the village of Twiston in Lancashire, England for some time, and is currently the earliest known progenitor of our Stone family to have been identified. He is believed to have been born in Lancashire, England during the early part of the 1500's, possibly in about 1510. William was later married, most likely in Lancashire, to a woman named Elizabeth Bradley. Elizabeth, who is also believed to be a native of Lancashire, England, was the daughter of John Bradley and Anne Braithwaite.
(Sources listed at bottom of webpage, but not specifically referenced to the assertion of John Bradley and Anne Braithwaite being Elizabeth Bradley's parents.)
According to Melissa Thompson Alexander:
Elizabeth Bradley's date of birth was provided by Chuck Harris ( Harris apparently regarded her mother as being unknown (no other sources cited).
