The baptisms of the 3 daughters, Elizabeth, Martha and Mary, are recorded in both Upton and Blewbury registers, but the ages at baptism of Elizabeth and Martha are given only in the Blewbury register. Mary was presumably also in her late teens or early twenties when baptised in 1726, but no indication of this is given in either register. (Upton was a chapelry in the parish of Blewbury - see more detailed note here.)

Blewbury registers are missing between 1674 and 1720, as are a number of the BTs during that period. These missing records, along with the parents' apparent later non-conformity, mean that there could well have been other children in this family. Two possibilities might be the Francis SIDERY who was baptised 9 Mar 1768, East Lockinge BRK, "aged 65 born of anabaptist parents", and the Moses "SIDRE" who married Mary HOPGOOD 30 May 1736, Little Bedwyn WIL.

Blewbury BTs show the burials of "Francis SIDRY senex" on 6 Jul 1686, and "Alice SIDRY vidua" on 8 Mar 1693/4. It is possible that either or both of these were parents of John SIDERY (So144).

Variant spellings of the surname SIDERY include SIDDERY, SIDEREY, SIDREY, SIDRIE, SIDRY, SYDRY etc.
