Henry Stoughton, son of Thomas Stoughton and Christian (…), died in 1509.1

Henry married Joan (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here).1

He was the principal heir to his father's fish business on Old Fish Street, London, and presumably carried on with it after his father died.

For reasons not known he was imprisoned at Cambridge but exempt from the King's general pardon on the accession of King Henry VIII in April 1509 and died in prison within a few months.

He wrote his will 26 December 1508 and left his property to his eldest son, Thomas, providing wife Joan to have the income from it for life.1
