Shared note
1851 census Rickinghall Inferior (HO107/1794/28) Martin Sterry, Head, 73, Pauper Ag Lab, born Rickinghall Suffolk Martha Sterry, Wife, 73, Pauper Ag Lab, born Thompson Norfolk James Farrow, Grandson, unm, 17, Ag Lab, Rickinghall Sfk His marriage certificate of 1 August 1855, Independent Chapel Wattisfield, has him as James Sterry, 21 years, Bachelor, Labourer, Residing at Rickinghall Superior, Father's name James Sterry, labourer. Witnesses Robert Sterry and Mary Anne Farrow. It would appear that he wasn't wholly decided on whether to use Sterry or Farrow as his surname, as the baptism of his first two daughters at Rickinghall Inferior shows: Rickinghall Inferior 1855 Dec 16 Elizabeth d. James & Anne STERRY, Rickinghall Inferior, Labourer 1857 Sep 6 Eliza d. James Farrow & Anne STERRY, Rickinghall Inferior, Labourer On birth certificate of his daughter Elizabeth Farrow 23 Oct1855 at Rickinghall Inferior the name Sterry doesn't show up at all. Father is just plain James Farrow.
