About Edmund Sherman, II

The Shermans in America - Edmund and Joan Sherman

Edmund SHERMAN - b. about 1572, Dedham, Essex, England; d. about 1641, New Haven, CT. Son of Edmund SHERMAN and Ann PALLETTE. Named in the 1589 will of his grandfather Henry SHERMAN, and the 1625 will of his sister Ann ANGIER, where she also names two daughters of her brother Edmund as Ann and Jone. Lived at Dedham, England, and emigrated to America 1634. Married about 1605, England.

Joan - Called "loving sister Sherman" in 1643 will of her husband's half-brother Samuel SHERMAN. According to "Was Tobias Makin an Ancestor of the New England Shermans?", by Myrtle Stevens Hyde and Douglas Richardson, The American Genealogist 61:79-82 (July/Oct 1985),

Joan was not the daughter of Tobias MAKIN, whose daughter Joan MAKIN married Richard STONE as her only husband. The 1610 will of Tobias MAKIN names Edmund SHERMAN and his son Richard SHERMAN. It is possible that Grace MAKIN, daughter of Tobias MAKIN, married an Edmund SHERMAN, but he has not been specifically identified.

Edmund Sherman was born 1572 in Dedham England. His parents were Edmund Sherman Sr. and Ann Pellette. Edmund married Joan Makin. She was also from England. Her father was Tobias from Fingringdoe England. Edmund and Joan had 10 children. Edmund inherited a clothing factory and many acres of land from his father. He was a Puritain and felt he must leave it all so that he could immigrate to America and worship as he saw fit. Edmund and several sons and daughters sailed from Ipswich England on the ship "Elizabeth". His wife is not listed as a passanger so we assume she has died. The family arrived in Watertown Massacheutts in June of 1637. From Massacheutts the family moved to Conn. Several children returned to England where other family members remained. Edmund and some of the children remained in Conn. Edmund died in Conn.
