Second Generation

3. John2 Sturgis (Jr.) (John1) was born about 1663. John died after 1739 in MD.

He married twice. He married Priscilla Hill after August 14, 1688. Priscilla was the daughter of Robert Hill(Sr.) and Jane(wife of Robert Hill). Priscilla died before 1731. Robert Hill named his daughter, Presilla, in his will. Jane Hill, widow of Robert, gave her daughter Persilla a feather bed and furniture to be delivered at her day of marriage, dated August 14, 1688.

He married Elisabeth (wife of John Sturgis) before July 19, 1731. Elisabeth died before 1739. On July 19, 1731, John Sturgis and his wife Elisabeth deeded to Johnson Hill "Robinson's Inheritance," land that was willed to John Sturgis in 1695. She probably died prior to 1739 as she is not mentioned in the 1739 deed. John deposed his age as 19 in 1682. Richard Robinson of Northampton County, VA left 300 acres of "Robinsons Inheritance" to his wife's sister's son, John Sturgis, in 1695. "Robinsons Inheritance" was in Somerset County, MD on Bouquetenorten Bay. Dorothy Savage's sister, Rebecca, had married Richard Robinson. Rebecca and Richard Robinson evidently were close to or raised John after his mother's death and his father's remarriage to Elizabeth Bundick. (Floyd Otter, Origins of the Sturgis Family in VA, Ash Tree Echo, Jan. 1979, Vol XIV, Issue 1, pp. 38-43) In 1735, John Sturgis, Sr. & Johnson Hill resurveyed "Robinson's Inheritance." In 1739, John deeded "Robinson's Inheritance" to his youngest son, Daniel.
