Frances Sturtevant a grocer in London (formerly of Carlton-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire) traded to Flanders [which is now in Belgium] and was married to Philipote the daughter of Richard [Nicholas?] Rogers of Bruges, Flanders. Their daughter Jane, who was born around 1582/3, became naturalised in England, where on 25 November 1600 she married Zaccheus Isham of Barby, Northamptonshire at St.Olave Jewry, London.

The only other known connection with Belgium is that Harry Sturtivant , who had lived in the Croydon, Surrey area, became a golf professional and designed a golf course in Frensham Park for Lord Pearson (of Pearson's Magazine), then took up a similar post at Knocke, Belgium in 1911. He was called up into the British Army on the outbreak of the First World War, so returned to England with his wife Florence and two children Charles Stuart (born 1908) and Irene Peggy (born 1910).
