Family of Mary Sherme

Mary Sherme was the Second child of Mary Jewell and John Sherme, and was baptised on the 8th February 1629, in the Parish of Kilkhampton.

A search of the I.G.I., has discovered 2 possible marriages involving Mary Sherme. Details are as follows;

Spouse Place of Marriage Date of Marriage
Michael Heard Kilkhampton, Cornwall 27th February 1659
Richard Heard Kilkhampton, Cornwall 27th February 1659

No doubt the first reaction to reading this would be that there is a typing error in the above. Well suprisingly there isn't. What you see above is exactly what the I.G.I. shows. To try and determine which may be correct I searched the I.G.I., for children to both marriages, and unfortunately there are none recorded.

Hopefully further research will help me to determine which (if any) marriage is correct, and what became of Mary. In the meantime if anyone has anymore information about Mary, or you feel you may be one of her descendants, please contact me at
