There have been several members of the clergy in the family, as follows:

Nicholas Stertevaunt , priest, of Slaidburn, Lancs, was referred to in Early Chancery 1500-1515. His name is missing from the list of rectors in the parish church.

John Sturtyvant , Clerk, was sued for goods in 1533-1538 [1600/1?] by William Sturtyvant , Yeoman of Norwell Woodhouse, Notts.

John Sturdivaincte/Sturtyvante was a [chantry?] priest at Todwick [nr Rotherham?] c.1534-1546.

Simon Sturtevant , rector of Hemingby, near Horncastle, Lincs 1594-1597, of Bristol 1602/3 and of Compton Martin, Somerset 1605-1613 (see separate section) . His name is in the lists of rectors at both Hemingby and Compton Martin. (1604 - Fourth from the bottom on the left hand list). He is also referred to in 1609 as a clerk at Islington, London.

Lawrence Sturtevant was a preacher with the East India Company 1605-1614 and went to Java.

John Sturtevant was presented to Bilsthorpe rectory, Notts in 1613. Chancery Proceedings were taken out against him around 1621/5 by Peter Broughton for the manor and rectory, so presumably he was rector for about ten years, then refused to relinquish the benefice and house.

Tristram Sturdivant , was ordained deacon in London on 17.2.1705. Became vicar of Edlington, near Horncastle, Lincs from 25.3.1709 under the patronage of Queen Anne. Also c. (curate?) of nearby Thimbleby. Succeeded at Edlington, probably after his death, by Henry Best, who was appointed 21.10.1755 under the patronage of King George II. Presumably this benefice was under the patronage of the reigning monarch. It is not known whether his name appears on lists of rectors in either of these churches.

Saunderson Turner Sturtevant erected Preston Chapel at Norwell in 1827. In his spare time from being a London Tallow Melter he was a Methodist Minister, and was the author of "The Preacher's Manual", first published in 1828 in two volumes, and reprinted in 1834, 1838 and 1866.
