166. Peter6 Stock (James7 ) was born in England 26 January 1858. Peter was a butler who worked on ships.

He married Hannah Lewis 9 March 1886 in Dunmow Parish, Essex, England. Witnesses were Reuben Stock, Laura Lewis, Mary Lewis, and Peter Lewis. Hannah was born 8 December 1856 in Worcestershire, England and immigrated to the United States in 1887, settling in North Arlington, New Jersey. On 7 Nov 1887 both Peter and Hannah appear on a travel manifest aboard the Etruria bound for New York. Peter was employed as a Butler and Hannah was employed as a Maid. Peter appears in the 1861 and 1871 England census living with his family and then never appears in another census. Hannah doesn't appear in any census until the 1910 US federal census when she stated that she was a widow and that all three of her children were still living. Hannah died 31 Jan 1916 at 209 E 53rd Street, New York NY of pneumonia. She was the daughter of Harry Lewis and Nellie Jones, both of Wales according to her death certificate, although she listed her father as Andrew Lewis on her marriage certificate.

Peter Stock and Hannah Lewis had the following children:

child + 70 i. Emily5 Stock was born 3 July 1884. She was born Emily LEWIS, presumably because she was born out of wedlock. However, her parents also reversed their own names on her birth certificate (Peter LEWIS and Hannah STOCK).

child 167 ii. Charlotte Lewis Stock was born in Dunmow Parish, Essex, England, 15 September 1888. She appears in the 1891 census (see record below) and then again as a passenger aboard the Teutonic 2 Feb 1893 enroute from Whitehaven, England to Chicago, IL. After that her name is not found in any records. However, in the 1954 obituary of her mother, a reference is made to daughter Charlotte Riley of Manhattan.

child 168 iii. Evelyn Dorothy Stock was born 10 April 1897** in New York, NY and lived in New York City (employed there as a Stenographer in the 1920 census), Detroit, MI (1930 census) and Chicago, IL. Evelyn died 1960 at 66 years of age. She married William Kingsley in 1927. William was born in Chicago, Illinois 11 September 1897 to William and Annie Kingsley. William was a salesman in the steel business. William died 30 April 1970 at 72 years of age.

** Evelyn's birthday is most likely 10 April 1897 (from passenger records SS Santa Rosa 24 May 1947).
- The 1910 census gives her age as 18 which would make her year of birth 1892.
- The 1920 census gives her age as 26 which would make her year of birth 1894.
- The 1930 census gives her age as 33 which would make her year of birth 1896.
- Family records show her birthday as 9 Oct 1895, but it was changed multiple times making the entry almost illegible.


Note: Emily and Charlotte appear in the 1891 census in Ely, Cambridgeshire in the home of their aunt and uncle, George and Mary Heard:

George Heard 40
Mary Heard 36
George Heard 14
Emma Heard 12
