John Sherwood/Shearwood/Sheerwood married Elizabeth unknown but this is possibly the marriage of John Sherwood and Elizabeth Taylor 9 Dec 1787 at Chieveley, Berkshire.  I do not find another marriage in the Hampshire/Dorset/Wiltshire area for this couple (John and Elizabeth Sherwood).

Their son John Shearwood  was baptized 13 Aug 1797 at Shipton Bellinger, Hampshire and he married Sarah Happerfield 10 Jul 1821 at South Tidworth. They baptized six children:

Maria baptized 18 Nov 1821 at Shipton Bellinger
Jane baptized 12 Dec 1824 at Kimpton
John baptized 4 Nov 1827 at Kimpton
Harriet baptized 26 Sep 1830 at Kimpton
Thomas baptized 16 Mar 1834 at Kimpton
George baptized 18 Feb 1838 at Kimpton

Jane Sherwood married William Cotterill 21 Feb 1852 at Kimpton and their son George was baptized 6 Mar 1859 at Kimpton and he died Mar quarter 1913 at Hadleigh, Rochford, Essex.

John, brother of Jane,  was an agricultural labourer for Walter Pathecary at Middle Wallop in 1851. On the 1861 Census he is listed as a Farm Bailif living at Kimpton. John Sheerwood on the 1871 census (born in 1828 at Kimpton) is listed as a keeper of a beer house at Nether Wallop.

Very interesting. George Cotterill (my great grandfather) died at The Salvation Army's Hadleigh Farm Colony, Essex England. He was working there as a foreman/stockman from the mid 1890s. Hadleigh Farm is still owned by The Salvation Army and is run as a training centre. A visit to its tea rooms and rare breed farm is highly recommended for any visitor to Essex.
God Bless.

Thank you very much. We have not yet visited Essex in our travels in the British Isles. God's blessings to you as well.
