Family of John Sherme

John Sherme was the second child of John Sherme and Thomasine Adams, and was baptised on 20th May 1681, in the Parish of Kilkhampton.

A search of the I.G.I., has discovered that John married Jane Cholevill on the 21st April 1715, in the Parish of Morwenstow. It seems that Jane was born about 1678, also in Morwenstow. Unfortunately there is no record who her parents were. I have also discovered (according to the I.G.I.) that John and Jane only had 1 child. Her details are;

Jane Sherme - born 28th February 1717

Unfortunately I have not been able to locate any other children born to John and Jane. Hopefully further research will determine what became of John, Jane and their child Jane. In the meantime if anyone has anymore information about them, or you feel you may be one of their descendants, please contact me at
