There are many Sterrys - this line originates in Southwold and is (I think) the only connection to our family - but there is a marvellous one-name study which you can see here
There is also a so far unconnected branch of the Sterry tree which seems to originate in Lowestoft, but a connection surely must be there. Robert Sterry's one name study covers both branches.

3 James STERRY m Mary NEAL (bap 24 Dec 1763 d 25 Dec 1833 Southwold aged 70) 25 Dec 1786

Note: Witnesses to the marriage were Rhoda DARBY and John STERRY. Mary was the daughter of Thomas NEAL and Alice. Southwold MI states: In memory of James Sterry, trinity pilot and Mary his wife. The former died 14 Feb 1845 aged 82 years the latter 25 Dec 1833 aged 70

A local clergyman by the name of Maggs refers in his diary twice to James: on the first occasion it was to say that James was sent to Jail in 1831 over a dispute involving a cask of whisky, and secondly that his "room" was used for the election of a new deputy harbourmaster in 1845.

"1829 Jany 24th Particulars of a Cask of Whisky Tried at the Suffolk Assizes Augt 10/29. Verdict for Plaintiffs see Accts. In 1831 July 27th Mr. Jas. Sterry the Defendant was sent to Jail (Ipswich) by the Plaintiffs for 641 pounds stirling being the cost of the Action. Sterry was discharg'd 7th Novr following. Cost Defendants (Corporation of Southwold) Solicitors Bills, law charges including the expenses of the Action, Dunwich v. Sterry 844li s 5d Paid by the Plaintiffs (Corporation of Dunwich) their Own Costs et: upwards of 1000 pounds stirling ... Sterry, Marshal of the Admiralty Court at Southwold and Tide Waiter, seized the cask that had come ashore within the bounds of Dunwich and opposite Walberswick. Stung by previous incidents, Dunwich sued and won but was bankrupted by the costs. The case cost Southwold dear and it allowed Sterry, the named defendant, to go to Debtors Prison at Ipswich rather than pay the plaintiff's costs."

(Kindly supplied by Peter Sterry to Robert Sterry from whose website [see bottom of page] . Peter also comments that it seems that the local council allowed James Sterry the concession of the market from 1829 until 1843 as compensation. All the ports on the east coast were very protective of their rights. The long standing dispute between Yarmouth (and Southwold) is well documented and lasted over three hundred years, not being finally settled until 1676.)

This report in the Ipswich Journal for 19th November 1831 (Page 4 column 5) details the court proceedings:

'Report of action against James Sterry of Southwold at Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors On Monday, at a Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors, held before Mr Commissioner Law, at the Shire Hall, Ipswich, James Sterry, the elder, late of Southwold, yeoman, deputy harbour master of the port of Southwold, and marshal of the Admiralty Court there, and clerk of the Southwold market, in custody at the suit of the Bailiffs, Burgesses, and Commonality of the borough of Dunwich for 341£, being the costs of an action brought against him to try a right to the possession of a cask of whiskey, washed on shore between Dunwich and Southwold, was opposed by Mr Palmer, specially retained for that purpose, on behalf of the Corporation of Dunwich; Mr Evans was specially retained to support the Insolvent. As there was but one other debt in the Insolvent's schedule of 5£. money lent him by a friend on the day of his arrest, Mr Palmer contended that as the Insolvent was in custody at the suit of a Corporation, and as the Act empowered the Court to appoint a proper person or persons, being a creditor or creditors of the Insolvent, to be assignee or assignees of his estate and effects, for the purposes of the Act, the Court had in this Insolvent's case no jurisdiction ; that a Corporation was not within the meaning of those words of the Act, since the Court could not compel a Corporation to file their accounts, or have any remedy against them for other dereliction of duty in the assigneeship. Mr Commissioner Law overruled the objection, and observed that the Court could appoint any one or more members of the Corporation, to be Assignee or Assignees, over whom it would have every power given by the Act. The Commissioner observed that the Insolvent was not in prison of his own accord, but was arrested and put there by the Corporation of Dunwich, and as no case of opposition had been established, the Court declared the Insolvent entitled to his discharge forthwith.'

James was licenced in Jan 1791 and retired on 10 Nov 1832. His licence was endorsed 'Orfordness, North Channel and River Thames to London and in and out of Harwich'. He made returns for Lowestoft to Trinity House in 1808. James was licenced as a Trinity pilot in January 1791 and retured on 10th November 1832. His license carried an endorsement: "Orfordness, North Channel and river Thames to London and in and out of Harwich" In 1808 he was making returns to Trinity House from Lowestoft.

Lowestoft monumental inscription reads: "In Memory of James Sterry trinity pilot and Mary his wife The former died 14 Feb 1845 aged 82 years the latter 25 Dec 1833 aged 70 years Pray without ceasing."
