Shared note
The only John Henry Sterr(e)y registered around that time was at Upton (Upton Severn) in the 4<sup>th</sup> qtr 1875 GRO Upton 6c 340. The full birth certificate identifies his mother as Mary Ann Sterrey then resident at Welland (near Malvern) - no father. Mary Ann was born to Abraham Sterry and Eliza Meek (of the Longhope Tree) in 1859 at East Dean and later married Joseph Field in 1877. In those days illegitimate children were often born well away from the family home, which would account for this birth at Welland Malvern, before returning back to the family home to be brought up by his grandparents. The 1891 census below confirms that John Henry Sterry aka John Henry Field was indeed the son of Mary Ann Sterry.
