The son of my ancestors, EDWARD & ELIZABETH (HINCKLEY) STURGIS, he married Temperance Gorham on March 1, 1663 in Yarmouth, Barnstable Co., Mass.

Edward Sturgis Jr. worked with his father in importing liquor for the inn that his father kept. On November 12, 1678 at about 36 yrs of age, he made a noncupative (verbal) will which was written down on November 15, 1678 and witnessed by his mother, Elizabeth Sturgis, John Sunderland and Joseph Gorham and was probated on June 3, 1679. The will bequeathed 1/3 to the widow and the remaining 2/3 to be divided equally among his children, except that son, Joseph Sturgis, was to have 20 pounds more than the rest, and daughter, Desire Sturgis was to have his silver tankard. He died with an estate of 900 pounds which was a large estate for that time. His real estate of 100 acres was partitioned for the four sons, Joseph, Edward, James and Samuel. Their uncle, Governor Hinckley, supervised the administration of his estate.
