Family of Joana Sherme

Joana Sherme was the fifth child of John Sherme and Thomasine Adams, and was baptised on 26th December 1687, in the Parish of Kilkhampton.

According to the I.G.I., Joana married John Vinson on the 25th May 1713, in the Parish of Morwenstow. I also discovered that John was born about 1688 also in Morwenstow, but once again his parents are not shown. A further search has found that Joana and John had 4 children. Their details are;

Thomas Vinson - born 17th January 1713
Grace Vinson - born 17th January 1713
John Vinson - born 25th November 1720
Joseph Vinson - born 1st November 1722

At this stage I have not been able to determine whether any of the above children married, whether they had children of their own, or what became of them. If anyone has anymore information about any of the above, or you feel you may be one of their descendants, please contact me at
