Family of Thomas Sherme

Thomas Sherme was the sixth child of John Sherme and Thomasine Adams, and was baptised on 24th June 1690, in the Parish of Kilkhampton.

A search of the I.G.I., has found a record of a Thomas Sherme marrying Margaret Colwell on the 18th April 1715, in the Parish of Poundstock. I should piont out that the Parish of Poundstock is not near Morwenstow, where Thomas was born and baptised, however there is no other record od a marriage, and no other record of a Thomas being born or baptised prior to this marriage.

To add further doubt to my claim, I was not able to locate any children born to Thomas and Margaret. No doubt further research will be required to prove this marriage, and determine what became of Thomas and Margaret. In the meantime if anyone has anymore information about Thomas and Margaret, or you feel you may be one of their descendants, please contact me at
