"Back in 2014 I contacted Wiltshire County Council as I found a reference on their website to stoolball being played in a village called Sherston in 1630. In their reply it's obvious it's 'stoball' not stoolball and they give the quote that I think you already have recorded. However, it's still an interesting reminder in terms of the ball."

Per-e Email from Anita Broad, Vice Chair, Stoolball England, January 23, 2018.

Warning

We are uncertain whether the game was a running game or a field-hockey=-type game also called "stoball." 

Comment

Sherston, England is in the southwest of England, near the Cotswolds and about 20 miles NE of Bristol England.
