John Terry

b. circa 1741, d. 1809
     John Terry was born circa 1741 at Sussex, England.
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 or father 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, Newhaven, Sussex, England.3

     Peter Terry was born in 1777 at Newhaven, Sussex, England.
Peter Terry was baptized on 21 December 1777 at St Michael, Newhaven, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of John Terry and Sarah Hollands.
Peter Terry and Elizabeth Alce obtained a marriage license on 17 April 1798 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England. Elizabeth age 18 years with consent of father Abr.A. East Blatchington. Peter age 20 years of Newhaven, jnr.2
Peter Terry married Elizabeth Alce, daughter of Abraham Alce and Sarah (?), on 18 April 1798 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England. Peter is "of Meeching alias Newhaven."2
Peter and Elizabeth were married by licence which is unusual as marriage was normally by banns (marriage by licence could be performed immediately, the couple did not have to wait for the banns to be read over three consecutive weeks). The record for the marriage licence is contained in volume 26 of the Sussex Record Society publications (Marriage Licences, Archdeaconery of Lewes):
"Terry, Peter the younger of Meeching, otherwise Newhaven, labourer, bachelor, aged 20 and upds, with consent of Peter Terry his father, and Elizabeth Alce of East Bletchington, spinster aged 18 and upds, with consent of Abraham Alce her father: bondsmen, said P.T. and Thomas Simmons of Seaford, yeoman 17 April 1798 [Lewes]"
The information on this marriage licence indicates Peter Terry as the father which disagrees with the information deduced so far (i.e. that John Terry is the father). Certainly, the Peter Terry baptised to John and Sarah Terry on 21.12.1777 at Newhaven is of the correct age, but there may be another Peter Terry (son of Peter Terry) who was the person that married Elizabeth Alce. However, the East Sussex Baptisms Index was searched for the period 1700 to 1790 and no baptism of Peter Terry to father Peter Terry was found. The original marriage licences have been destroyed so it cannot be checked.
Their first son Richard stated his place of birth as Blatchington on the 1851 census but his baptism occurred in Newhaven. Peter and Elizabeth were married in East Blatchington so this possibly indicates that they moved from Blatchington to Newhaven shortly after his birth, or that Elizabeth had returned to her parents for the birth of their first child (a common practice).
Peter Terry was a labourer.3
Peter Terry died in 1825 aged 48 years leaving Elizabeth with a young family of eight children. She remained a widow until she died in 1864, nearly 40 years later. Each parish was responsible for its own poor and the 1851 census indicates that she was a parish relief widow (i.e. receiving financial support).
Peter Terry died in 1825 at Newhaven, Sussex, England.
Peter Terry was buried on 1 May 1825 at St Michael, Newhaven, Sussex, England.4
