Steven Gibbons was most likely the son of Steven Gibbons and Margerie Granger of Trysull, Staffordshire, as they were the only Gibbons family having children in the area in the right time period. Steven (junior) married Marie Southwicke 6 June 1610 in Tettenhall.

The parish register for Trysull began in 1558, but the pages before 1572 are torn and difficult to read. The image below is from the torn part of the register shows an entry for:

This is most likely the burial register for Stephen Gibbons on 2 September 1558 in Trysull.

Steven Gibbons 1558

Since there were no other Gibbons family in the early records, Steven (born circa 1560) is likely the grandchild of Stephen Gybbyns, and the son of William, Rychard, or John. Steven may not have been born before his grandfather's will was written, as he is not named in the will of 1558. John Gibbins is shown in the burial register in 1590, along with his wife Jonne, who was buried in 1585. No baptismal records are found for the children of William, Rychard or John in the Trysull parish register. Rychard and William are not found in burials in the Trysull parish register which shows burials from 1570 on. John would seem to be the most likely father for Stephen (1560).

Stephen and Elizabeth must have been born in about 1490. Stephen was the son of John and Alice Gibbons of Trysull, who were likely born in the mid-1400s..

Stephen and Elizabeth had the following children:

1. Agnes

*2. John; mentioned in father's will of 1558; married Jonne; buried 30 July 1585 in Trysull.

3. Alice, married John Worwood; mentioned in father's will of 1558.

4. Elizabeth

5. William; mentioned in father's will of 1558.

6. Richard; mentioned in father's will of 1558.
