About Judith Sherman

Edmund Sherman was buried at St. James, Colchester, Essex 2 September 1661.

He married in Dedham, Essex, 15 May 1611 Judith Anger/Angier, baptized in Dedham 5 June 1587, daughter of William Anger and Ann Rye.

There is a widespread misconception that this couple had descendants in New England. The 1658 will of Rev. John Sherman mentioned 'the two children of uncle Edmond Sherman' but did not name them. The nuncupative of Edmund Sherman of Colchester St James, Webster, made in August 1661 was proved in Colchester 14 October 1661 by Edmund Sherman, described in the will as his 'only child'. the sole executor', to whom he left 'all his goods and estate whatsoever.' These two wills taken together suggest that the testator's last surviving daughter died between 1658 and 1661, unless he had disowned her.
