The McGill Family is the family of Stacey McGill and they live in both New York City and Stoneybrook.

General[]

The family first moved to Stoneybrook from NYC on the Upper West Side (in a tenth floor apartment) in August before Stacey started seventh grade. Edward and Maureen can't have anymore children after Stacey. They are very protective of her and are constantly searching for a miraculous cure for her diabetes. They thought she needed a "peaceful little town" like Stoneybrook because of her diabetes. Edward worked in Stamford, heading a branch of a company. Stacey and her parents moved back to NYC to 14 West 81st St., Apt 12E when her father was transferred back.

After Stacey's parents divorced, she and her mother moved back to Stoneybrook and her father moved as well.

Stacey notes in Good-bye Stacey, Good-bye that she's from Scottish and French descent but you'd have to go far back to find someone who lived in those countries.

Stacey mentions several family vacations in Stacey's Book. She mention, going to a dude ranch when she was seven, a trip with the Cummings to San Francisco when she was eight, and when she was nine they went to Ireland and Scotland. Stacey mentioned a winter vacation to a resort on St. Thomas island.

In The Summer Before, Stacey mentions that her family used to live in downtown Greenwich Village until she was three.

Stoneybrook[]

Stacey and her mom live at 89 Elm Street in Stoneybrook.

The house on Elm Street has two sets of stairs, low doorways, wavy panes of glasses and floors that title a little. The house dates back to the 1880s. At least six families have lived in the house in the past ten years or so. The house has a bathtub resting on claw feet, a bedroom with dormer windows. The doorway to the attic is next to the doorway for the upstairs bathroom. The attic is on the third floor with a light switch at the bottom of the steps. It's small but crammed with stuff.

Stacey had a portrait of Sophie, a girl who lived in her house in the 1890s and whose diary was discovered in Mallory and the Mystery Diary, over the living room mantelpiece. Maureen gets some exercise equipment in Stacey vs. the BSC.

Mrs. McGill and Stacey's house new backyard is back to back with the Pikes'.

The apartment is old and classy, with brick walls and a cozy little fireplace. The building is prewar with a southern exposure. There is a desk in the office corner with a computer, printer, and fax machine. There are two bedrooms, one for Stacey whenever she wants to visit. There's a futon that unrolls into an extra bed.
