Armstrong Sperry 1897-1976
According to a website about Sereno C. Sperry, the secretary and treasurer of the Pond Lily Company of New Haven, the Sperry family is of Irish extraction and was founded in America by 2 brothers, Richard and Thomas Sperry, who came to the United States in the early part of the 17th century. My 4X Great Grandmother Anna Sperry born in 1758 was the 2X Great Granddaughter of Richard.
The inscription in this copy of All Sail Set reads as follows: “This book about a ship is inscribed to the memory of Captain Sereno Armstrong by his great-grandson.”
I conclude that I would be remotely related to Armstrong Sperry.
