Stansted Mountfitchet

It is always nice to visit Stansted Mountfitchet especially as my Gray, Giffin, Stannard and Gurson families lived here in the 1600's and 1700's.  My Lucy Judd was born here in 1836 and lived in Gall End with her parents Thomas Judd and Sarah Cuffley (who married in Stansted) and her grandmother lived in The Street.  My Richard Gray, a brickmaker, owned land on Stony Common in Stansted in the early 1700's.
St John's built in 1889....
They are just stones but once upon a time they may have been my ancestor's stones on Stoney Common.....
