Probably the William charged below. Martin was his nephew. The Ipswich Journal Saturday 17 December 1870 Petty Session Reports Eye Hartismere, Monday, December 12 Game Trespass - Edward Banham, of Rickinghall, was charged with a game trespass at Redgrave on the 16th inst., but he did not appear ... William Sterry, of Rickinghall, was charged with the like offence at the same time and place, and pleading guilty, was fined 1s. and costs, and in default of payment committed for 14 days. Night Poaching - The said William Sterry, with Martin Sterry, of the same parish, was then charged with night poaching, at Burgate, on the 8th December. Walter Bean said: I am a gamekeeper at Botesdale. As I was golng home about half-past ten on the night of the 6th of December I met Martin Sterry. He asked me for some tobacco. I told him I had none, and he said he was going to Diss after some stock. I saw another man a short distance off, but do not know who he was. Suspecting something wrong, I went and called up Henry Boston and Walter Bean. We traced footmarks in the snow across Burgate Green into a meadow. When in the meadow I heard a gun, and saw a flash in Burgate Wood. I went in the direction. Boston said, "There they are." I went up and saw Martin Sterry. He flourished a stick at me. I saw William Sterry running. I followed him and found him hid up in a ditch. I called him out, and he asked what I wanted. I said," To see if you have a gun!" I saw he had a gun In his pocket. I said, "You have a gun." I asked him where the pheasant was. He said, "l had not time to get it." It was about a quarter to one in the morning. It was moonlight. The men here to-day are the men I saw. I knew them before. : Cross-examined by Martin Sterry: I saw you on the footpath. I did not charge you with being with Alfred Bailey. Cross-examined by William Sterry: I found you in the ditch. Defendant: I was not there there. I was at home and in bed. Henry Boston said: I live at Botesdale, and went with Walter Bean. I saw the footmarks in the snow; the persons who made them walked with a stick. [Martin Sterry Is lame, and walks with a stick.] I heard the report of a gun and saw the arc in the plantation. I ran and saw the two defendants come out of the plantation from where the gun was fired on to the footpath. We ran and found William Sterry in a ditch, the other defendant stood on the footpath. I saw a gun in Wm. Sterry's pocket. I am sure both persons are those I saw. I had known them before. Cross examined by Martln Sterry: I traced your footmarks across the footpath. I saw you come from the plantation. I did not say I had not seen you off the footpath. By Wlliam Sterry: You had a long coat on, not the one you are wearing now. William Sterry stoutly protested that he was at home, and in bed, and the other prisoner stated that he did not go off the footpath, and was going to get an order from the Relieving Officer for the Union. The Bench considering the case to he proved, sentenced each defendant to one month's imprisonment with hard labour, and at the expiration to be bound by recognizance, himself In £10 and two sureties in £5, or one in £10, not to offend again for a year, and in default of the finding sureties to be Imnprisoned for one calendar month further. The sentence upon Wlilliam Sterry to commence from the expiration of his former sentence. Left will naming son Robert, daughter Mary and granddaughter Agnes.
