Master mason, for George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham. Other works in London include the statues at the Guildhall of Charles I and Elizabeth I. Stone's name could not be more appropriate - see Isambard Brunel for more examples of nominative determinism.
Our image shows an engraving of the now lost monument to Stone, with a portrait of his son, Nicholas, also a sculptor, added to the lower left. It was in the church at St Martin-in-the-Fields, where he was buried.
