1897-09-23 at the twelfth annual exhibition of the Southampton Art Society, "Mr. John Ferry's picture, "Autumn in the New Forest" (No. 54), is really beautifully painted, the autumnal tints on 'falling leaf and fading tree' being put on with the hand of a true student of nature, in perhaps the most beautiful of all the four seasons."

1915-09-18 at the 29th annual exhibition of the Southampton Art Society:

Full of interest and character, too, are the four canvases of Mr. John Ferry. Two (66 and 67) depicts [sic] scenes on Southampton Common, and he never goes further afield than Winchester and Ringwood for his inspiration.

Hampshire Independent, 1915-09-18
1918-09 again at the Southampton exhibition:

Amongst the many local exhibitors must be classed Mr. John Ferry's works, for the latter is an industrious landscape painting devotee, and he excels in this particular branch with a general effect of capability which would seem to warrant his "breaking fresh ground," wherein similar success might attend him, instead of limiting himself to ordinary subjects. One misses the river scenes which have formerly appeared from his brush.

Hampshire Advertiser, 1918-09-28
1919-08-16 at the 33rd exhibition:

Mr. John Ferry's works are as excellent as last year, and perhaps the most attractive of them is "On the Itchen, Woodmill," a water colour of much merit. Mr. Ferry's oil paintings are notable for their daintiness of subject and carefully detailed finish.

1923-10 exhibited at the 37th exhibition Hampshire Advertiser, 1923-10-06
1932 Q3 d. New Forest RD GRO index
 

I always associate him [Frank Pollard] with my very dear Uncle John who was like him in gentleness quietness & stature. My uncle lived & spent all his life in Southampton & was known there as the local artist, loving only to paint pictures & much loved & respected but always delicate & yet he lived to be 80, & strange to say passed away while on a holiday in the New Forest where he often spent some of his holidays & loved it so well that he said he wished to die there, so it was really strange that he had his wish.

letter from Maggie Petts to Ruth & Sidney Beck, 1951-03-27, in my possession
  During the 1950s and 1960s we had a painting by John Ferry—a watercolour of a woodland scene—at my home in St Albans. I've no idea what happened to it subsequently.  
  Three of John Ferry's paintings are held by Southampton City Museums, and may be seen at ArtUK.
