Notes
This is assumed to be Sarah's baptism and parents. There are a number of family trees on Ancestry.co.uk that state that she was baptised on the 30th of October 1733 in St Philips, Birmingham, (there is an IGI for this), and her father is Robert Groves (no mother given). But why would the Sarah Groves who married Richard be the one who was baptised in Birmingham, when Barton-on-the-Heath is so close to Whichford, Stourton and Tidmington? Have a look at the Cotswolds Area Map to see how close they all are.

Notes
Richard's Parentage
 
It's possible that Richard is the son of Robert Sturch and Elizabeth Stockford rather than Richard Sturch and Elizabeth ?.
Robert and Elizabeth's daughter Elizabeth lists a Richard Sturch as a witness on her marriage to Thomas Eden in 1756. This Richard would then have been her brother.
It could be that the surviving Richard has been confused with the Richard, son of Richard and Elizabeth ? who died in 1729, as I have not seen this Richard listed in anyone else's trees.
Richard (1763)'s baptism record lists his parents as Richard (Jr) and Sarah Sturch of Stourton, which suggests that he's the third Richard in the line, although it is important to note that the 'Jr' at that time purely signified that there was at least two ‘Richard Sturch’ in Stourton - an elder and a younger one. Although it could be, it does not necessarily mean father & son combinations.
Standard naming convention would also support the theory that Richard's parents are actually Robert and Elizabeth; Richard named his first son Robert after his father, his second son William after his wife’s father and the third son Richard as his namesake.
Richard's exact parentage is not vitally important, as both Robert and Richard are the sons of Nicholas Sturch (c.1660 - 1728), so until this confusion is resolved I've included both sets of parents.
