St. Simon Stock (circa 1165 – 16 May 1265) was an English Catholic priest and saint who lived in the 13th century and was an early prior of the Carmelite order. He is believed to have lived at Aylesford in Kent, a place that hosted in 1247 the first general chapter of the Carmelite Order held outside the Holy Land, and where there is still a monastery of Carmelite friars. The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to him and gave him the Carmelite habit, the Brown Scapular. Thus, popular devotion to St. Simon Stock is usually associated with devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
