Hi,

I did some research a while ago for a lady in Canada.I was able to trace her Sherstone family line via Lancashire back to a cluster of villages in South Somerset;Yeovilton,Limington,Tintinhull,Chilthorne Domer,East Coker and Thorne Coffin.When I first had contact with her she told me that Sherstone was a very unusual and uncommon name today and that to the best of her knowledge there were only 3 family members around the world that could possibly carry the name on.
As I researched the family in Somerset I started finding more and more of them and some were big families with lots of sons, in 1871 there were loads of them!So rather than the families getting harder to find the further back I went the opposite was true.Of course it begs the question that with all those sons what happened to them all?
I'd love to know,Mick ???

Hi Mick,
I would be very interested in the research you mention, that is Sherstone,, I have a Sherston ( note,, no e on the end), family from Somerset, a Thomas Sherston born abt. 1849 who married in Yoevil in 1870 to a lady named  Elizabeth nee R endall, and that family had a number of Sherston children in  Yoevil, before leaving to live in Canada, approx  1874.
Could you possibly reply to me at   frankandlaurie@aumarire.co.nz

Hi all,

I wonder if you have any information on my ancester Susan (Susanah) Sherstone or Shestone or Sharstone (different on various documents) She married my direct ancester William Mark Senior I believe on 28-06-1836 at St. Mary Major church in Ilchester, Somerset. This marriage was witnessed by a Rhoda Shenston (probably another Sherstone ?) just misspelt ?

Any help would be gratly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Richard
Senior - in Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire & Somerset 1781 to Date

Best - in Dorset & Hampshire

Just found these messages having traced Sherston/Sherstone family back to Charles born abt 1818 in Thorne Coffin......then lived in Lufton. His line continues through .......but if anyone has any info on Charles (married Mary Taylor), I'd be very grateful.
