William Shepherd of Sherford and Charleton, Devon
Posted by Miriam Henriksen on 4/4/2023, 2:13 pm
In 1791 in Devon Banns register lists; William Shepherd of the parish of Sherford and Mary Camp of the parish of Charleton, to be married 20 July 1791. In Sherford I find a baptism 5 May 1766 of William Shephard. Can this be the correct William? Any information about the Shepherds or Shephards of Sherford and in East and West Charleton would be very helpful in my search of my ancestors from Devon. Williamsí daughter Maria Shepherd, bapt. 5 February 1792 in Charleton married a Norwegian Simon Andrews in 1813 in Charleton. They also lived in Plymouth for some years before moving to Norway approx. 1821, with their 3 children.
In Charleton I am also interested in Mary Camps family, Philip Camp and Hannah Distin as well as John Shepard and Ann Ellis in Sherford. Any information from the villages in this period is also of great interest.
