    Notes on Storrick Name

  • Notes 
    • Jack was born in Northumberland County, England of Robert Sturrock and Isabella Ann Pringle, the fifth of eight known children. He married Hannah Lizzie Strong in 1888 and moved the family to the United States in 1894. In 1901 they returned to England, then returned to the USA in 1906. While undergoing standard immigration processing in 1894, there was a clerical error made in spelling John and Hannah's surname. The correct spelling "Sturrock" was inadvertently changed to "Storrick." This error affected each of three immigrants and subsequently all other descendants. Another proposed family move prompted his wife to divorce him in 1915. Jack spent time in California and other places unknown before returning to Washington County Pennsylvania and passing in 1931.
