I noticed that you are looking for some information on the Sterritt name originating from Ireland. My Grandfather's Granfather emigrated here to the US in the late 1700's. I have all of the geneology from then until now on his family. There were some uncles that went WEST in the US but I didn't hear of anyone who went to Australia. I started searching some years ago andhave most recently been in College at night so I haven't gone very far with it lately. I will check my records of Ireland for any connection to you and let you know. I do know that per my Grandfather there has always been a James Sterritt in his family for every generation.

Allene Sterritt,
Hi, from Aus, Stretch(nickname)is 6'6"
left his name and name search months ago
and is most surprised that after all this time he has had an answer. We seaached the
internet one night and found 14 Sterritt's listed in the Irish Phone book. Most unsual
name in the world except in Ireland. As with many Irish family they either went to the
America's or sent south to the penanal colonies. At the moment all our relivent
information is down stairs and is not at hand but if you receive this message, I can
make sure, that in the furure I can have
relivent details avilable. We have come across a few Sterritt here in Australia, most
of which payed their own way or come on Licencse which was the same as indenture or
apprecentaship. Hope if you receive this
that you will reply and we can share information, or if any other Sterritt is
lisening please reply.

Hi all,
I just checked the message board today and saw your messages. Wonder if either of you has any information about my dad and his family.

My sister and brothers and I have litle info as our parents died while we were young, but the info that we have is:

My dad, Thomas, and his older brother, Frederick, came from Belfast, landed at Ellis Island. It would have been in the late 1920s or early 1930s.

My dad was young, maybe under 10, and his older brother, Frederick, was just a few years older. They were separated soon after landing, Frederick went to look for work. My dad stayed at a farm, worked there for however long?

Eventually my dad came to Canada. Met my mom in New Westminster, B.C. That is all we know. I don't suppose anyone on this board is a decendant of Frederick, or knows anything about these Starretts/Sterritts.
PS. I do remember that when I was 9 my dad took me to get a library card. He gave the librarian a different spelling for our family name, and when we got home he showed me that he had just received a birth certificate from Ireland and the name was not spelled STARRETT, but I can't remember how it was spelled. I think STERRITT???? Oh, we also know that our father's mother's name was Mary Kelly, who married Frederick Sr.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.
Judith Starrett,
Terrace, British Columbia, Canada.

Dear Allene,

I noticed on the Sterritt message board that you have information on Sterritts in America from 1700. I am looking for the parents of my gggrandfather, Samuel Morrison Sterritt who was from the tri states area of New York. That means he could have been born in Ny, NJ or PA. His mother was supposedly named Martha Hulse, born around 1772, but I don't know his father's name. I do know that there was a Morrison somewhere in there. Samuel married Dorothy Ayers on March 12, 1827.

If any of your Sterritts sound similar I would love to hear from you.
