DNA evidence indicates a very probable connection between both Southwold lines and the much older Lowestoft Suffolk Sterry line. Documentary evidence indicates that James Sterry born abt 1719 at Lowestoft, the son of John Sterry and Mary Baldry on the Lowestoft line is a probable match to James Sterry who married Elizabeth Cobourne in 1760 at Southwold on the Southwold Sterry line. Also that John Sterry born abt 1756 at Lowestoft, the son of William Sterry and Elizabeth Mayes on the Lowestoft line is probably the same John Sterry who married Mary Strange at Southwold in 1796.
The Lowestoft and both branches of the Southwold lines have therefore been merged. For the time being the Southwold tree will still remain as a separate and identifiable tree. However, any future updates to either branches of the Southwold line will only appear on the merged version to avoid possible synchonisation errors. So anyone with a particular interest in viewing the Southwold line should check the merged version - now within the Lowestoft line - for the most current information.
