The first record we have of the Stephensons is the marriage of Henry Stephenson to Susan Clark in 1691, in Hogsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. Lincolnshire is located on England’s east coast about the center of the country. They had five children. Henry, our ancestor, was born in 1697 in Hogsthorpe. The church pictured below is possibly where Henry married Martha Richardson.
