     Note: Was the 5th son of William Starr

John Starr (IV) sold off a large portion of the manor estate in 1630. He also has the distinction of being the last Starr in the direct family line to retire in Beer. Unfortunately, he met his demise early during a plague outbreak in 1646. Localized outbreaks of bubonic plague could hit hard in one town, yet leave others untouched only a few miles away. Unlike the pandemic of 1348 which wiped out one third of Europe's population, this outbreak was much less pervasive. However, three-quarters of the population of Beer died in the bubonic plague. As there was insufficient space in the chapel graveyard for all the victims, those killed by the plague were buried in a field at Holyhead. In the village church there is a tablet which reads:

"John, the fifth son of William Starr, of Bere, gent., & Dorothy his wife, which died in the Plague, was here buried. 1646."

John Starr (IV) had at least one son by the name of John Carran Starr. Whether to escape the devastation of the plague, or based on his status as a second son, he made his living in the army. In fact, he served as a Captain of Infantry in the Parliamentary army of Oliver Cromwell during England's Civil War. Cromwell's forces revolted and executed the King, setting up a purely parliamentary government headed by Cromwell which lasted until the Restoration. The Parliamentary army was the most elite fighting force of the time. Captain Starr's forces included imposing pikemen and deadly muskets of the flintlock design.

He lived in the very small town of Beer, which is about one mile south of Seaton, in Devonshire, England. Beer, or Beere as it was spelled at the time is described today as a small fishing village, once a harbor for pirates.

by Victor Starr:

The Starr family roots probably lie somewhere in the mainland of Europe. The earliest record of a Starr was that of Leunot Stearre whose taxpaying status was noted in the English Doomsday book of the late eleventh century. He was of French descent and emigrated to England after the invasion of William the Conqueror in 1066. Another prominent family of Starrs to whom no direct relation has been linked (but probably exists) is that of Thomas Starr. Thomas Starr lived in Kent as early as the fourteenth century, and his descendants included Dr. Comfort Starr and many of the New England Starrs. This line of the family is speculated to have emigrated from Flanders to England sometime in the thirteenth century.

The oldest known direct ancestor, is John Starr who was born sometime around 1500. We know little about him other than the fact that his son, John, purchased a manor home in the village of Beere, England, and was a prominent member of the mercantile guild. Beere (or Beer as it is presently known) was a small fishing village on the southern coast of England about a mile from Seaton. The nearest city of prominence is Exeter.

After King Henry VIII dissolved the holdings of the Catholic Church in the sixteenth century, he included the manor home of Beere in the dowry of Catherine Paar. Later it was sold to the Hassard family of Lyme Regis who eventually sold it to John Starr of the mercantile guild in Beere. The manor home had been an abbey for hundreds of years, and had even been a home for Saxon leaders before the conquest. The manor had been rebuilt many times and after John Starr purchased it in 1550, an extensive renovation was performed.

This line is the direct one which produced all the individuals in the following outline. This list includes freemen of Exeter. Many of them are likely related to the line of Starrs as brothers, cousins, etc.
