About Alice Sturges

The traditional ancestry of John Sturges is that he was the son of Edward Sturgis of Yarmouth who was the son of Philip Sturgis of Hannington, but this has been shown to be false by Roger Faxton Sturgis in his book "Edward Sturgis of Yarmouth, Massachusetts 1613-1695 and his Descendants". Briefly, In his will date May 26, 1618, Philip Sturgis left lands in West Haddon to his son Edward. Edward was his first son by his first wife, and therefore would have been born about 1600; the third child, first from the second marriage, was born in 1608.

Edward of West Haddon married Alice and had 4 children: Alice (1619), Mary (1621), Edward (1624), and Rebecca (1626). According to a tablet erected in All Saint's Church in Holdenbury, Alice Sturgis the wife of Edward Sturgis died January 20, 1659, and her husband Edward Sturgis of West Haddon died there on October 22, 1670.
