From Durham Cathedral, Durham Marriage Bonds, Northern Genealogist, Lincoln Marriage Licenses, Ordination Entries at Ely; Garrigill Church Registers.

Many of these items are given simply to prove the antiquity of the name and its numerous variants. It would be impossible to locate correctly in a lineage all the Storys, Stories, and Storeys mentioned.
