Samuel Robert Sturla was mostly likely born in Cross Street, Chatham, Kent [not London, as stated in his enlistment papers] towards the end of 1848, son of Samuel Robert Sturla, a baker, and Sarah Jane Blackman Sturla.  He was baptised on 17 January 1849 in the parish church of St Mary the Virgin where Charles Dickens sat in its pews and is said to have taken more than a dozen names for his novels from its gravestones. The building was closed for worship in 1974.

An extensively-researched sketch of Samuel Sturla, Jr, will be posted at a later date.
