He married three times. He married Nancy Bishop in Worcester Co., MD, June, 1797. Nancy was born about 1779. Nancy was the daughter of John Bishop(Capt.) and Ann Goderd. John Sturgis married a Nancy Bishop in 1797. It is not proved that it was Nancy, daughter of John Bishop d. 1820.

He married Polly Waters in Worcester Co., MD, May 29, 1805. He married Mary Rounds in Worcester Co., MD, 1816. Mary was the daughter of Hampton Rounds and Zipporah Rackliff. Mary released her dower in 1851. She is probably the Mary Sturgis, age 63, living in the household of Thomas S. Porter in 1850. John inherited remainder of his father's land at "Rochester."

John Sturgis marriages: Nancy Bishop in 1797; Polly Waters in 1805; Mary Rownd in 1816. This his first wife was Nancy Bishop is by deduction through Worcester marriage records, census and the various John Sturgis; however, there appears to be some sort of relation to Major Mumford d. 1816.

John is probably the John Sturgis, executor of estate of Major Mumford in 1816 and who Mumford called 'friend.' Major Mumford also named John Sturgis, son of John in his will.
