Until 1861 Upton was a chapelry in the parish of Blewbury. From the late 16th century through to the first half of the 18th century Upton had its own register, though some events were recorded in the Blewbury registers as well, albeit with some differences in detail. From then until 1861 it appears that baptisms, marriages and burials from Upton were recorded only in the Blewbury registers. I have assumed that events recorded in the Upton register took place in Upton, otherwise I have given the location as Blewbury.

Three John SIDERY burials were recorded in the Blewbury registers in the 1740s. The earliest of these in 1742 (John the younger of Upton) seems quite likely to relate to John SIDERY (So72), whilst the latest in 1748 (John the elder of Upton) almost certainly relates to his father, John SIDERY (So144). The remaining burial in 1746 (John of Upton) would thus seem likely to relate to the John SIDERY baptised 1721, son of John SIDERY (So72). However, at Elizabeth SIDERY's marriage to John HARRIS in 1757 (see above), one of the witnesses was a John SIDERY, and as it seems possible that he could have been Elizabeth's brother, or maybe even her father, this leaves some uncertainty as to which John SIDERY was buried when, and as to the identity of the fourth John SIDERY.

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