On Ancestry.com I found a reference that may be to my 4th great grandfather John Stacy (also discussed in Could John Stacy who lived/married at London and later lived at Exmouth (Devon) have been baptized in 1759 at North Petherton (Somerset)?), referring to Musgrave's Obituaries.
Finding the entry in Musgrave's Obituaries Prior to 1800, vol 5, John Stacye has been recorded as:
Stacye, John, tea-dealer, Gracechurch Str. 3 April 1790. (E.M.319; G.M. 375)
Does anyone know how to interpret such an entry, and in particular does it seem to be a reference to an obituary for John Stacye (in which case it is not my 4th great grandfather, but possibly his father/grandfather)? I'm hoping that
(E.M. 319; G.M. 375.) may lead to more details about him recorded elsewhere.
