Prudence Stockton was born circa 20 December 1584 in Alcester, Warwickshire, England, United Kingdom to John Stockton (1565-1630) and Susanna possibly Whittingam (c1560-) and died before 1648 Lynn, Massachusetts, United States of unspecified causes. She married Edward Holyoke (1585-1660) 17 June 1612 in Kimcote and Walton, England, United Kingdom.

The first four children were born in St. Lawrence Jewry, London; the rest in "Tanworth" (possibly Tamworth, Warwickhire), where John and Edward died. The other children were married and/or died in Massachusetts.

Elizabeth married George Keyser around 1645 in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. Elizur married, first, Editha Stebbins, then, secondly, Mary Pynchon in 1640 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Anne married Thomas Putnam in 1643 in Tanworth. Sarah married John Andrews. Mary married John Tuttle in 1647 in Boston, Massachusetts, where also Susanna married Michael Martyn in 1656.

It may be assumed that some of the family emigrated by 1640. Others, along with the two sons-in-law and maybe a grandchild or two, probably sailed later (e.g. 1646)
