John Terry

d. 1809
      A possible baptism for John Terry is 12.4.1741 at Street, Sussex to parents John and Charity Terry. There are no Terry's listed in the Newhaven parish registers prior to John and Sarah's marriage in 1765 (checked back to 1720).
The details for John Terry's possible baptism and parents (John & Charity Terry) came from Frank Clark, Linden House, The Street, Rickinghall, DISS, Norfolk, IP22 1EG (contacted via Sussex Family History Group's Directory of Member's Interests  listed under TERRY). Frank supplied the following list of John and Charity Terry's children baptised in Streat:
12.4.1741 John
3.7.1742 Sarah
6.3.1747/48 Charles
1750 Charity
1.12.1752 Elizabeth
(All confirmed in the Sussex Baptisms Index - GGB).
John Terry married Sarah Hollands, daughter of Francis Hollands and Anne Ticehurst, on 11 October 1765 at Newhaven, Sussex, England, by banns, both of this parish.1
A John Terry was a juror on a coronial inquest in Newhaven on 13 May 1769. Also on the jury was a Thomas Hollands, possibly the brother of John's wife, Sarah (nee Hollands).2
The parish register indicates that a tax was levied for baptisms after about 1.10.1783. However, John and Sarah were classified as paupers on all baptisms after this date and so did not have to pay.
John Terry died in 1809 at Newhaven, Sussex, England.
John Terry was buried on 25 August 1809 at St Michael's, Newhaven, Sussex, England.3
