wh in indent. of Apr. 1673 calls hims. of London, m. Mehitable, d. of
Jacob Sheaffe, had Jacob, b. 1677; and Sampson, 1681, H. C. 1702,
went, aft. 1685, to Newcastle, N. H. and in that Prov. was collector of
the customs, memb. of the counc. 1698, and Secr. and Judge of the Sup.
Ct. but came back to B. and d. 1724. From him most of the name in
N. H. descend. WILLIAM, Charlestown, m. 15 Aug. 1672, Ruth Wood,
perhaps d. of Josiah, had Mary, b. 31 May 1673, bapt. 14 Dec. 1684; William,
wh. d. in the pestilence of 1677; beside Edward; William; and Mary, all bapt. 13
Jan. 1689; but why some were not earlier, I am ign. and he d. 7 or 17 May 1713,
aged 63. Of the s. Edward, I think, had Edward; and the shows d. of his
w. Mary, 1 Nov. 1748, aged 70; but she must have been third w. for a sec. m.
2 Mar. 1703 was Elizabeth wid of John Pinney, d. of Thomas Rand; and William
d. 17 May 1718, and his s. William d. in Oct. foll. Among the
early memb. of the ch. at Roxbury was a wid. S. and Ellis, in Hist.
gives the names as of a man, with supply of goats and kids, prob. bef.
1640, yet no light has been shed on either. She may have been mo. of
Jacob the first. Of this name, in 1839, ten had been gr. at Harv. and
two at Yale.

    SHEARER, sometimes SHERWOOD, THOMAS, Boston, tailor, m. 18
Apr. 1659, Hannah, d. of Thomas Bumstead.

    SHEARMAN, JOHN, Dartmouth, of wh. he was among early sett. m.
Sarah, d. of William Spooner, had ch. Timothy, Philip, Isaac, Ephraim,
as is learn. from his will of 19 June 1720, pro. 21 May 1734, beside ds.
Abigail Chase, and Hannah Shea, the h's. of wh. are unkn. to me. It made
Philip and Timothy excors. and ment. his br. Peleg. But no informat. of
the br. is obt. nor could I learn any thing of descend. of John, yet it is well
kn. they have been num. Always have I suspect. that this name is the same
as Sherman, even on our side of the water, but a large proportion of one
branch being Quakers, the distinct. was easi. and harmless. made by insert.
of the first let. of our alpha. JOHN, Marshfield, s. of the first William. But
see Sherman, as comm. the name is writ.
