Sharman correspondants

Several Sharmans have managed to contact relatives they didn't know they had through this page, which is a great reason for maintaining it.
If you're looking for relatives or people researching your family, please send me an email with everything you know about your ancestors and - unless you tell me not to - I'll put it here. You might want to model it on Jeanette's or Jan's email if you can, because their structured presentation makes it easy to see who is whose parent or child or sister.

If your recent email isn't here, and it should be, please (Netscape) Reload or (Explorer) f5 to see the latest version from the website. If your mail still isn't there, remind me to upload it...

If you want to if find someone is here, you could wait till the page finishes loading then use the key at the end. Or you could try your luck with the Search function.

My name is Les Sharman (Leslie Walter) b. 16/11/50. I would like help in tracing my decendants [on] the Sharman side. Les, unless you have had a particularly unlucky life, you probably mean your ancestors, not your descendants...

My fathers name was Walter b. 16/1/1904. He had two brothers, Jim and Albert, I think they were born in Garstang in Lancashire, my Grandfather moved there as he worked on the railways, he later moved to Manchester where the family stayed.

My fathers father was Jim (christened Jim). He was born in Huntingdon. My fathers mother was named Agnes Lavin, of Irish origin.

His father was a farmer in Huntingdon ( first name not known), after his wife died he remarried.

He then died, his second wife inherited the farm who later passed it on to her family, excluding my grandfather from her will.

I now live in East Anglia where Sharman is quite a common name.

I know there is not a lot to go on but would be very grateful for any information or any hints that may help me to continue my search. i.e. useful web sites etc.

Hello Martin,

I belong to the SHARMAN Rootsweb List and a few days ago a Yvonne Donnell posted a msg to the ANCESTRY.COM List which was cross sent to the Rootsweb List and in which I think she was replying to a message of yours. The msg stated that she was the 9th child of 10 of Charles SHARMAN who was the son of a Charles SHARMAN who in turn was the son of a GEORGE SHARMAN who came to Tasmania in 1835.

My wife is a SHARMAN and her ancestors lived for centuries in a village in Northamptonshire called Stanwick before coming to Australia in the mid 1800s.

For some time now I have been trying to link another SHARMAN branch into my main Stanwick SHARMAN line. This branch was in Tasmania in the early 1800s and the earliest ancestors were a George SHARMAN and Mary CHAPMAN. I believe that George and Mary did not come to Tasmania but certainly their son, Frederick SHARMAN did come as he was a transported convict coming probably in the 1830s. The mention of a George SHARMAN pricked up my ears, so I have attached to this msg a family history report giving all the SHARMANs descended from George and Mary that I am aware of in the hope that you or Yvonne will be able to connect with them.

As I do not have the E-mail address for Yvonne, I am hoping that you will be able to pass this msg on to her as well as studying it in case your SHARMANs are also there.

I would also be happy to give you and/or Yvonne my Stanwick SHARMAN data in case there is a connection there.

From: Sharman Martin
Date: 12 April 2002

Hi Martin,

I just discovered your web site, The Sharman Page, and was amazed to see that your name is the reverse of mine. Over the years people who do not realize that I am female have assumed that my name is Martin Sharman and figure that Sharman Martin was supposed to be written Sharman, Martin. I was born in 1952 and was named after Sharman Douglas, the daughter of the American ambassador to England at the time. Apparently she was quite a going concern in social circles in the USA and Britain. The recent death of Princess Margaret has brought out the revelation that she and Sharman had a brief affair!

Sharman was also a friend of Roddy McDowall, the American actor and photographer and therefore moved in Hollywood circles (American Royalty) also. I grew up in a small town in Ontario, Canada and now live in British Columbia, Canada. In those days girls were named Debby, Cathy, Susan and Linda. Most of the town had an Anglo-Saxon background, the biggest differences being whether you were Catholic or Protestant.

My name was a huge burden to me. No one could believe that my name was spelled correctly so they always pronounced it as Sharon or Sharmaine or Shannon. I got tired of repeating my name until people got it right and became quite sensitive to the way people "slaughtered" it. To this day, I always ask for clarification if I am not sure how to pronounce a name and try hard to get it right. Anyway, now I just accept my fate and keep correcting people without being too judgmental regarding their ability to read.

I have never met another woman with Sharman as a first name and would probably have a huge identity crisis if I did. I occasionally hear or read about women with my name but that is not the same as coming face to face with one. I'm not sure what my parents were thinking when they named me. Maybe they figured with a common last name like Martin, I needed a distinct identity. They certainly accomplished this! When I married I kept my maiden name as my husband's name is rare and I didn't need two names to spell. This way when I get asked my name I can just say "S. Martin".

Thanks for the Sharman Page,

Hi my name is Carolyn and I have a book it is by John Sharman 1818, Dublin its Astronomy, Geography I am trying to find out what the book is worth or if somebody would be interested in it. let me know or where I should go to find out more about it, I live in San Diego, thank

Dear Carolyn, The web provides a good source of information on old books and their value. The Rare Books and Manuscripts Section, Association of College and Research Libraries gives a good introduction to the subject at

If you want to sell your book, you might look at some of the auction sites on the web.

What might make your book interesting to a collector is the light it sheds on our knowledge of geography and astronomy as it was almost 200 years ago.

I have put your question on my web site in case any Sharmans are interested in your book.

Hello my name is David Judd and I am researching my Judde ancestors in Warwickshire. One of the Wills I have for a Richard Judd 1606 described as a Husbandman states " my Kades Sharman 12d" Does this name mean anything to you or does it appear in your records anywhere? If it does I would appreciate details and I would be quite happy to forward a copy of the Will or further detail if required. My email address is Many thanks

There's a Planet Kades on the web. But I suppose that's not much help really.
On a more serious note, I've come accross Kades as a family name, with independent origins in Greece, Czech Rep and Indonesia, I think, but never as a first name. Is the writing on the will unambiguous?

Hello, Martin.
My name is Casey and I work for a Canadian film company. I fall into the category of people seeking Sharmans. The one I am looking for is Helen Sharman, OBE. She is the woman who was the first Briton into space and spent 8 days on Mir. I am looking for a means to contact her as we want to discuss with her the possibility of her participating in a program. If you know of the means of contacting her, I would be most delighted if you could pass that information along. Thanks.


Dear Casey, Helen Sharman doesn't accept invitations to speak any more, so I rather doubt that she would be interested in participating in a TV program. For someone who was so much in the public eye, she has managed to keep herself very private. None of the sites that mention her name provide any email address or other way to contact her. I think that the best way to contact her would be to write to her publishers and ask them to forward your message.

She wrote an autobiography called "Seize the Moment" with Christopher Priest (ISBN: 0575058196) published by Victor Gollancz. She also wrote "The Space Place" which Portland published in 1997 (ISBN: 1855780925) and "Juno Mission" (ISBN: 0863571905) published by the Association for Science Education.

There's no point in sending an email to her via me, since all I could do would be to post it here!

Sorry that I can't be of any greater help than this.

I am the son of Sophia Irene Sharman a sister of Charles Wilfred Sharman who died in India in 1919. He was a son of john thomas sharman and jane rebecca sharman (nee.brian) woodnewton. I have his last letters home and letters from the army to his family. He died the result of an accident at the age of 19 in 1919. I also have photos of him in uniform and photos of his grave site.

Please correspond as I am trying to locate family on the internet. I am aware of my mother's siblings' families in Coventry but have had no personal contact, only what was passed on to me by my mother over the years.

I am trying to find out about a Thomas Sharman born about 1810 in Bedfordshire (England) - probably in Dunstable. Thomas also seems to have had a connection with (and may have lived at) Westoning in Bedfordshire. I believe that he may somehow be linked to my line of Sharmans who lived in Rutland and south Lincolnshire at that time. Thomas went to Australia, and is said to have died there in 1911 aged 101 years - hence the likely date of birth. If you can help, please e-mail me at Thanks.

Since a friend of Sharman Douglas's was buried yesterday at Windsor Castle, I was wondering if this friend (Princess Margaret Rose) had been in touch with Sharman Douglas over the past few years and if she was aware that Sharman had died a year or so ago. Do you know? If so, please respond at your convenience.
Thank you.

Evelyn Vogel,

I think the Princess visited Sharman and her family in Tucson during the 40's or 50's

Um... you may have misunderstood my relationship with Sharman Douglas. I did not intercept her letters and any suggestion that there was more to our acquaintance than meets the eye is a calumny, nay, a low obtrectation. Talking of calumny, did you see what Sharman Martin said about Sharman Douglas and Princess Margaret?

If we are talking about the Sharman Douglas I knew (English), she was married at the time to Andrew Hay, and was a guest in my home. I remember her very well---charming lady. Let me know if this is the one you are referring to--and if she is still alive. How about Andrew Hay?

Rita Anton

I don's suppose that many people of that generation were called Sharman Douglas, so it could well be the same person. But according to Ms. Vogel, the lady has died. I don't know how to answer your last question. Sorry.

Hi there! I enjoyed reading about other Sharman's. My maiden name was Sharman Norine Franzen and like the Sharman Anderson on your site, my mom always told me I was named after Sharman Douglas, but I didn't know any other details other than Ms. Douglas being an ambassador's daughter. I was born in Tacoma, Washington in 1949. After moving to the Washington DC area in 1971 I was rather startled on my first day of work to get a lot of questions about "being squeezably soft"...They haven't always had Charmin Tissue on the West Coast. I love my name and it has started many interesting conversations with strangers who often compliment me on it. I have only met one other person with Sharman as a first name and that occurred at the Univ. of Washington in a small botany class (there were 9 of us--2 named Sharman!).

Hi everyone, I'm surprised there is so little activity on this list because my understanding is that the Sharman name is fairly common. [Steady on, we're not that common!] But maybe one should be encouraged that this should mean less research time.

Anyway, my Sharmans came at one time from Bergh Apton, Norfolk. John A. sailed several times back and forth arranging and selling passage to immigrants. He was at one time living in East Schodack near Albany,NY but ended up in Quebec, Canada.

He was married three times. Two for sure and likely a third. His second wife was Abigail Lofy also from Hethersett, Norfolk and his third wife was Isabella Galloway. He was born around 1796.

This is all I know of him. If anybody has any information please e-mail me.

A couple of names that seem to be common within the family as middle names are Leist (m/b Leest) and Alonzo. Just in case this rings any bells.

What a great site! My first name is "Sharman". I think it is a great name to have. I would like to contact other women that share my first name, if that is possible. So many women called Sharman have found their way onto these pages that I shall start a new page just for you in my next update of my site.

Full name is Sharman Jean Wood. My family is from England, Scotland, and Ireland. However, my father chose the name from a county song called "Sharmon" (with an "o") by Tom Walker, from the 60's. I can get the info. and the song itself if anyone is interested. It actually says, "Don't squeeze my Sharmon". I don't know if the Charmin tissue came before or after.

My reply is on the Sharman page.

Dear Martin,

My name is Jeanette Sharman McDonald (nee Britland). My mother was a Sharman before she married George William Britland (who died in WW2) and I am their only child. I was given the middle name of Sharman to perpetuate the family name, but unfortunately I did not carry on with this when my own two daughters were born, so on my death the Sharman name will die out in my family.

I have been tracing my ancesters for some 18 months or so and have accumulated quite a bit of information. I am currently trying to trace my mother's great grandfather and great-great grandfather (both called John Sharman) who, apparently, came from Yorkshire - but the Sharmans in Yorkshire seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth!

My maternal grandfather, James William Sharman, was born in Greengate, Salford and lived in Salford until at least 1919. Some time after that he moved to live in Gorton, Manchester. He was usually called Bill and his parents were Roger Sharman (who was born in Sheffield) and Agnes Tabbron (formerly Hallam - which sounds as though she had been married before).

1. John SHARMAN was probably born around 1804 in either Sheffield or, possibly, Keighley (that is a fact I am at present trying to establish)
---2. John SHARMAN (b.c. 1830 d. Salford 1911 aged 80) from Yorkshire (Sheffield area, or possibly Keighley), moved to Salford, Manchester in the mid- to late-1880's = (December 1852, Parish Church, Sheffield) Elizabeth HALLAM
------3. Roger SHARMAN (b. Sheffield 1863) = (1886, Parish Church, Salford) Agnes TABBRON (possibly born HALLAM) Was Agnes a relative of Roger's mother Elizabeth Hallam?
---------4. James William ("Bill") SHARMAN (b. 1892 Greengate, Salford d. 1974) = Minne WILLIAMSON (1894 - 1941)
------------5. Gladys SHARMAN (b.c. 1919, Broughton, Salford d. 1947) = George William BRITLAND (d. Italy 11th Sep 1944)
------------5. Norma SHARMAN (b. 1928, Manchester) = Donald Mackenzie
---------------6. Jeanette Sharman McDONALD (b. Gorton, adopted by father's parents, now living in Manchester)
------------------7. two daughters

I would be very grateful for any information anyone can provide.

I was given the middle name of Sharman to perpetuate the family name, but unfortunately I did not carry on with this when my own two daughters were born, so on my death the Sharman name will die out in my family.

I am currently trying to trace my mother's great grandfather and great-great grandfather (both called John Sharman) who, apparently,came from Yorkshire (Sheffield area, or possibly Keighley) before her great grandfather moved to Salford, Manchester in the mid- to late-1880's. I know he married Elizabeth Hallam at the Parish Church in Sheffield in December 1852 and that he died in Salford in 1911 aged 80 yrs. but that is as much as I have been able to establish.

I saw your page and am hoping that I may be able to be added to it. I was a Sharman, now am married and a Nowicki. Here are my details, please if you could add them to your list.

My name is Anne-Marie Nowicki (nee Sharman), born 25/12/71. My husband's name is Mark Jan Nowicki. We have 4 wonderful children, Mathew Douglas Nowicki 2/10/92, Tabatha Lee Nowicki 6/3/94, Chantelle Maree Nowicki 15/8/95 and Samantha Anne Nowicki 17/9/99. My brother and I are currently looking for our other brothers and sisters in England from our fathers side.

My brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Monicque Sharman are also on your Web page.

Regards Anne-Marie Nowicki

Anne-Marie, please could you give some information on your Sharman parents and grandparents? Their given names, the names of their spouses, and the names of their brothers, sisters and children, would all add to the chance of finding your lost relatives.

Good day. Just found yr site and wondered....

My Grandmother Alice Greatorex was a Sharman before she married my Grandfather (Frederick Ernest Greatorex) on the 23 June 1912 in Sheffield, Yorkshire.

Per the marriage certificate, her father was a William Henry Sharman (deceased) of Granville Street, Sheffield. His occupation was shown as "Grinder".

One of the witnesses was also a William Henry Sharman who I guess could have been her brother being named after the father. In fact I have a wedding photo which reputedly shows William in a group wedding. Alice was 22 when married so was born about 1890.

Would be interested in connected Sharmans out there. So could you advertize it on your site.

I am interested in any information regarding the Sharman surname in the Suffolk/Norfolk areas of England. I have traced family tree back to the 1700s in this area.

D posted this on but I thought I'd echo it here. D, check out the rest of the Sharman info on this site. I think you'll have to narrow down your request a little to get any useful response.

From: Michael & Wendy Sharman & their Elkhounds
Date: Sun, 15 Apr 2001
You mention on the site Michael & Wendy Sharman & their Elkhounds - was not aware that our name appeared anywhere -- anyway we are happily living in Markfield near Leicester from whence my father Robert Armine Sharman tells me the family originated around the turn of the 1900's having earlier fled France...(we think!!) at least his sister who died in her nineties quite recently used to sing nursery rhymes in French and the only person thought to have sung to her in French was her grandfather..

It was my fathers mothers side of the family that got chucked out of France...Wyatt's ... seems there is also a rumour that one of them got beheaded....mixing with a right lot here we are. I guess with a name like Wyatt that this would go back to the Scottish uprisings and the subsequent run to France. There also seems to be connection with Ireland as he asserts he could get an Irish passport, as well as his UK and Channel Islands one, which would get him into the US of A without a visa!! The common part here is a religious I guess.

I get mixed messages from father who is attempting to get it all into a family tree program, (but not much progress yet!) I have to ask the same question several times to establish an answer.

It seems grandfather Sharman ran a cigar factory in Leiceseter, turn of the century? , (I have even come across someone who worked in a cigar factory in Leicester) prior to packing it in and moved off to Walsall in the West Midlands.

We lived in Lindfield for a few years after departing South London, from there to Crawley Down and eventually built a house in Balcombe before coming back here 1992. We moved hear from Haywards Heath, Sussex and their were a few of us in the phone book there. Had some very good friends who had a rare breeds farm up on the Ashdown forest and used to visit the Caravan dealership in Uckfield regularly.

Father has recently returned from the Channnel Islands where he lived with mother until her death and living there was a Sharman family which originated from Leicester.

One of fathers brothers family (I gave up on 's years ago!) had sons go to Australia but I think contact has been lost. Father also remembers mention of a Sharman in Boston in the 30's but has no other memory of him.

A Genealogy report I read said that Leicestershire was the most populous area for Sharmans in the world. [Check my distribution page on this web site, Mike!

Us and Dad have thus come home.

Went thru Belgium a couple of weeks back, nearly missed it! on our way to The Netherlands,ex Elkhounds as the show at Leiden had been cancelled. Had paid for the Tunnel and was not going to give up the tickets (mother was born in Scotland!). Got the dogs refunded but could not get us.

Dear Martin,

My name is Peter John Sharman. I've just come across your site on the web and I'm wondering if you can help me get started with researching my family history. This isn't so spur of the moment thing, it is something that has always interested me but which has also always seem rather daunting, so any ideas or suggestions would be greatfully recieved.

I noticed from your personal details that your a born and bred Sussex boy which is very promising as I am too. [I was born in Sussex, but bred in Africa.] I was born in Sussex County Hospital, Brighton on 23 Jun 1972 and lived in Hove for the first eight years of my life. From there my family moved around quite a bit until eventually ending up in Suffolk, where my mother and step-father still live. However ten years ago I joined the RAF and have lived at or near: Bury St Edmunds, Antrim (Northern Ireland, although my name wasn't in the phone book!), Weeze (Germany) and now York.

Unfortunately my knowledge of my own family history is rather vague. My fathers name is Colin Roy Sharman 19 Feb 1941 (I think) and I have a brother called Andrew Roy Sharman 22 Jul 1973; both come from Brighton. I believe that my grand-fathers name was John Sharman and that he was married to Alice Sharman (nee U/K). I think I could probably discover a little more infomation on this topic the next time I speak with my father.

I look forward to hearing from you soon with a few tips on what to do and where to look.

Peter John

Peter, It's a long job (as long as you have the endurance for) and there is no easy way to do it. The only place to start is at the beginning. This means starting close to home and working back from there. I'm really convinced that the way to begin is to talk to your parents, and if possible to your uncles, aunts and grandparents. Get them to talk as much as you can about their childhoods, and the people they knew, their parents and grandparents, and so on. You will slowly piece things together. You need dates - of birth, marriages and deaths, particularly, and most importantly, you need to know where these events were probably registered. Without knowing the place at which the event took place, the trail will go cold.

If you know the date and place of one of these events, you can start the long chase to find the information you want about your ancestors, generation by generation. The key to this is the public records office. For example, from a birth certificate you can find the names and dates of birth of the parents. From a marriage certificate you may find the names not only of parents, but also the names of witnesses, who are often close relatives.

A tip - it is generally easier to follow lines with unusual family names than lines with more common ones. One of my grandmother was called Jones, and that's just about hopeless!

It's hard work, but curiously rewarding.

Hi Martin

Been reading your fascinating account of Sharman distribution in the East Midlands. Can you believe that when I was a child 75% of the people living in my home were Sharmans?

I'm a Leicester girl and the few ancestors I know of were too. I've not looked at the Sharman side much yet, but this is what I have so far.

Descendants of E Sharman

1. E. Sharman 1840 - 1885 = Emily
---2. Edward (Ted) Sharman = Charlotte Faulkner
------3. Edwin Sharman 1891 - 1965 = Louisa Ellen Smith 1892 - 1971
---------4.Edwin Lewis Sharman 1922 - 1996 = Margaret Emily Boyles 1925 - 1990
---------------5. Patricia Margaret Sharman 1953 - = Paul Forster 1948 -
------------------6. Alexander Forbes Forster 1982 -
------------------6. Lauren Susanne Forster 1984 -
---------------5. Gillian Marie Sharman 1955 - 1972
---------4. Florence Irene Sharman 1914 - 1975
------3. John Thomas (Jack) Sharman
---2. John (Jack) Sharman
------3. John Sharman
------3. Gert Sharman
---2. Emily Sharman
---2. Frank Sharman
---2. Kate Sharman = Albert Horsley?
---2. Flo Sharman

I believe Kate went to Australia.

I'm Patricia Margaret. We've run out of Sharmans on my line, I'm afraid, but my grandfather's brother's line (3 John Thomas (Jack) Sharman) is still going strong. Both these brothers (Edwin and Jack) started grocery businesses after they came back from the 1914-18 war. Their five children also opened grocery shops - in the 1940s Leicester must have been overrun with Sharmans in long white aprons.

So what is the distribution of biologist Sharmans like? I'm a biology graduate, currently working as an editor for the Medical Research Council, in an Institute based at Leicester University, where I run the site at

Well, you've inspired me to do some work on the Sharman side now - my mysterious maternal line is just TOO mysterious for the time I have available.

Dear Mr. Sharman,

It seems that all Sharmans that I know (or know of) -- first or last name -- were born in 1949 or one year before or after! One exception is the basketball great, Bill Sharman, who played for Boston's (my town) Celtics. I have often told people that my mother, a die-hard Celtics fan, named my brother, Bill, and me after him. That story is entirely fictitious -- except my brother is named Bill, but after his grandfather.

So, now you know. My first name is Sharman -- you wouldn't believe the jokes I get about Charmin toiletpaper. Do you ever get any requests from us? I was named after a young woman, Sharman Douglass (not sure if one or two s), who was a friend of Princess Margaret and a debutante in 48 or 49. She was remotely related to my mother's British relatives -- and apparently an American herself.

For a world weary of war news, Sharman's lifestyle captivated many. She was in Life magazine and many others. She eventually moved to America and married in Arizona when I was in college (1968 or 69). Do you have any news of her or know how I could track her down?

Love your site!

I am looking for a Sharman who was an ironmonger.
Highfields was a house built on Scalford Road in 1875 By W Garner in a field opposite the windmill...the house was called the Old Lodge and this part of Scalford Road in Melton Mowbray from the railway was known as Ironmonger Hill. this was because Mr.w GARNER, Mr. LADBURY and Mr SHARMAN all were Ironmongers and lived their. The GARNER is who I am interested in but need to know his surroundings and Mr SHARMAN is part of that. Does any of this connect with your Sharman I am wanting to know about this house and area.

I was given a gift of a large, beautiful oil paint reproduction by an artist listed on a label on the back as "John Sharman (American 1879-1971)." His style is definitely Impressionist - the painting shows a woman sewing in a chair on a porch in sunlight with a bank of white flowers beyond - truly beautiful. I went over the "Sharman" listings on the Internet and could find no information about this gifted artist - do you have any leads, since he might be one of yours?

If it is of any interest to you, my mother's maiden name is Sharman and until earlier this century the family lived in a village called Cogenhoe, near Northampton. A housing development has been built on land which once belonged to the family cottage, and is called Sharman close. My uncle has traced the family back to the mid 18th century, the Sharmans were mainly carpenters and the most common first names in the family seem to be Thomas, William and John. A cousin of mine who is half Spanish, Elena Corcoles Sharman, runs the 200m for the Spanish national squad and has a good chance of making it to the Sydney Olympics.

I have had a quick look at your Sharman page from time to time and rather got the impression that not much was happening. Too true, Frank, I went through a long slump.... Tonight I found that it has been very recently updated - and that I am said to be out of contact and to have two broken links. This is still true in May 2001 - wossup?

On 31st December 1997 I left Australia, having come to the end of my three year contract and having brushed off offers to stay. Since then I have been retired and have done nothing.

When I left Australia I did not tell Ozemail, who have my web site. I just stopped paying their monthly charge. They seem not to have noticed and my old web site is still there - a sort of ghost. And, of course, I cannot pick up any email that gets sent there. I thought I had told all my email correspondents about my move but it turns out that I missed one or two - for which, apologies.

I am going to set up a new web site with Demon just as soon as I can get round to it. I have been saying that for more than a year now but one day I really will. Two years on, and it'd be great to see you up and running again. We miss you, Frank. When it arrives it will be most of the old bits reassembled. The new bits will be mostly about India, where I have been spending some time.

I think you have changed your cyber address. Yes, I think I did. Try Have you left Belgium (or wherever it was!)? No, still in the same house, but I've changed computers, operating systems and service providers a couple of times and lost email each time. And addresses, and everything else. I still haven't been able to change cleanly, taking everything I want and leaving the dross that has accumulated over the years. What is the secret?

I happened upon your page whilst in "idle websearch mode", and was glad I did - it's fascinating to see just how many Sharmans there are around the world - and indeed how many of them maintain an electronic presence. I must admit I've never been particularly interested in genealogy, but reading the information on the your page has piqued my curiosity a little and next time I go up to see the family (in Lincolnshire), I think I might well venture up into the loft and check out the contents of the box of papers which I believe goes back to my great-great grandfather's time. I'll let you know if anything interesting pops up.

You do already mention me on your page - I'm the Steve Sharman who's involved with the AspireSpace rocket project, although I'm out of it to a large degree at the moment due to pressure of "real" work. Just to clarify though - the guy who has doubts whether aliens are dangerous is not me!

I was interested to see that you once worked for ICL, as that's where my "real" work is now - I head up the Group's worldwide HR Information Systems function, which basically means that I get to spend lots of time working on personnel and payroll systems, and when I'm not doing that, I get to sit on aeroplanes - it's a rock and roll lifestyle. And I'd just like to emphasise that the last part of that sentence was completely ironic - travelling on business is just not the holiday that my friends and family believe it to be!

Odd bits - I was born in Skegness, Lincolnshire in 1969, I have a degree in Computer Science (just) awarded from Portsmouth Polytechnic, and have a strong interest in most technology subjects, especially aviation, space, information systems and... er... beer (particularly ice cold Becks). I think I have one other reference on the Web that I know about - if you search Infoseek for "Steve Sharman", you can see that I once presented a paper at a Prolog conference. Happy days....

Thanks for an interesting page!

Date: 5 July 1997
I have a Sharman family tree which, subject only to the vagaries of the English Old Parochial Registers (OPR), dates back to Robert SHERMAN of Elton Hunts (married 1594 d. 1633). Robert was almost certainly a tenant farmer, as was his son Robert who left a will. Robert jnr. was a tenant of Elton Manor, a former Ramsey Abbey Estate seized by the Crown at the dissolution of the monasteries. Elton OPR begin 1560 and there were Shermans, probably more than one family, there when the records began. Elton Manorial Records exist back to at least 1279, and when I manage to get hold of them I'll be looking for earlier records of Shermans from whom the 16th Century Shermans may have descended.

A summary of the family tree follows. I have descendant lines from the Shermans/Sharmans marked # and an extensive line from William Sharman of Yaxley, Hunts, who is probably one or other of the two marked *. Then I have names of above 2000 of my "close" relatives part of the estimated 5000 or so descendants of George Sharman who brought his wife and his nine younger children to Tasmania in 1853. One child died on the voyage and the eldest arrived with her husband and child earlier in the same year.

If you or any of your Sharman correspondents have reason to believe they may be descended from the Shermans/Sharmans of Alwalton, Elton, Holme, Ramsey or Yaxley, Hunts, then I'd be happy to check my data. I gathered up an awful lot on the collaterals when I was searching. However I don't know where the descendants of any of the Hunts relatives went except for one daughter of my g.g. grandfather's elder brother William Harlock Sharman the younger. She married, in Hunts, a man named William Mayhew Wood (you certainly may, Willie. You'll find the axe in the woodshed.) and I know of a descendant line in Canada.

I am not internet connected and may never be. My brother Robert is and he printed off your stuff and sent it to me. He is not into genealogy and I'm not very interested either but I have become interested in history (especially British Colonial History) and in migration. My brother is the Archivist and I am the ex-Prof. of Biology. I can't afford a private laboratory and am too old to do field work so I do historical research mainly on a group of 1830s rural rioters and machine breakers who were transported to Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) because they got the idea they should be paid enough to allow them to feed and clothe themselves and their families.

You have managed to dredge up two members of our family. You will find it harder to find our four sisters who ... use their husband's names. Our direct Sharman ancestors are all dead and we have few descendants named Sharman - a medico, an aeroplane pilot (who has never heard of the aerobat Neil Sharman), a horticulturalist secondarily and English language teacher to Asians and four schoolchildren. So far as we know no other Sharmans on your list are any relation but included are a few first names of widespread occurrence amongst the descendants of George (1798-1867). Jim Sharman's family is of Irish extraction. The grandfather of "Old Jim" of Boxing Troupe fame was a former bare-knuckle champion of Ireland.

Thanks for your e-mail. My mother has become hooked on web searches, and now links me with all sorts of people, including another Robert Sharman (English also) living in Colorado: This is our very own Bob Sharman
I was born in London, England on April 2, 1969.
At age thirteen my mother (a New Yorker) and I moved to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After graduating from Nauset Regional High School in 1986, I attended the University of Southern California until graduating with a double major in English and Humanities in 1990. While there I caught the acting bug.
It took me two years to find the antidote - escaping Los Angeles. I moved to Hawaii, then to Austin and then to Dallas.
But eventually, my love for the business end of the entertainment industry, as opposed to the "talent" end, led me back to Los Angeles - as "The Video Guy."
On January 2, 1996 I married my wife, Lisa and we have a beautiful seven-year-old daughter, Brittany.
I love my work, and I love being my own boss.
I read your list of Sharmans. Ironically my brother is a Tim Sharman and is also into cartooning. He's young (17) and talented, but will likely not get into it. My step mother is a Wendy Sharman and is also blond and enjoys warm climates. If you like, feel free to add me to your page in whatever capacity you like: My web site will tell all:
Thanks for keeping our name an asset, and by the way my family uses the sea lion crest on all of our signet rings and on the family business (newspapers/printing in Peterborough, England - Sharman & Co.).
The following information is taken from the book "The Roll Baronetcy and certain Sharman families", which was researched and written by Robert's Grandfather, Charles Algernon SHARMAN.

My home page is at:

Click on The Spinning Turnip link to find a link-list to other Sharmans on the Net.

One splendid email I received said: "I have just started using the internet and found your name. As it is the same as mine I thought I would send an e-mail to you. (Signed) Millie DIDLAKE". Apparently she was flustered - Sharman was her maiden name. In future I shall refer these enquiries to you!

One day I will comply with your request and send you information about my paternal forebears. I know almost nothing about them and what I do know is back in UK. They came from Lincolnshire. I think that "Sharman" is a common name on the Lincs/Notts border. My Father knew a fair bit about another branch of the family called Shaw but seemed reticent to talk about the Sharman lot; since almost nothing gave him cause for reticence one or some of them must have done something pretty damned extraordinary.

I once bought "The Book of Sharmans" a wonderful publication made by reproducing all the entries under Sharman in every telephone directory in the world that they could lay their hands on. It picked up me and one nephew in UK and my brother in Dubai but missed another nephew in UK.

I have visited the Sharman home page several times . I will admit to being fascinated by the origin of my family name.
I, Paul Christopher was born in Armidale NSW, Australia 11th August 1961 to Noel Lindsay Sharman (1932-1970) and Betty Lorraine KONZ, (1935- ).
Lindsay as he was known was born in Taylor's Arm (I think) to Norman Joseph Sharman (?-1979) and Alma JOHNSTON (now frail, in a nursing home). Lindsay is survived by two sisters whom I will quiz on their family knowledge. I am married, Deborah Helen WINDEYER (with one and a bit children; Nicholas James 1991- ).
I have a Bachelors Degree in Pharmacy, a Member of the Pharmaceutical Society, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Pharmacy Management and a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Studies. After 12 years as a practising Pharmacist, I joined the Washington H Soul Pattinson Group as National Brand Marketing Manager in the Soul Pattinson Chemist Division in December 1994 (The Australian version of Boots The Chemist).
I possess two documents (copies) one a Solemnization of Baptism of a Walter Sharman (born February 2nd, 1849) in the Parish of St Sephulchris in the town and county of Cambridge. Son of Samuel Sharman and Sarah Ann. Walter, from whom I am descended, came to Australia.
The other is a marriage certificate solemized at the Church of the Parish of St. Martin in the Fields, Middlesex, between a Francis Bligh STEPHENS and a Susan ROBINS dated July 22nd 1852. I am sure this is relevant but am perplexed as to where it fits.
Keep up the great work and be in touch.

Have a safe and happy holiday. Of interest to you may be the tradition of the males in our family to nap after a large dinner such as Christmas turkey. This is called Sharmanizing in our family, and I plan to do a lot of it this holiday.

I was born Robert Cyril 1947 in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada to Henry Colin Campbell Sharman (b. Winnipeg 1924-1974) & Jean Elizabeth RANSON (b. London 1927). I am a Telecommunications Network Specialist for The Sabre Group (AMRCORP) living in Vancouver B.C. Canada.
Before our family dies off here, I feel the need to find my roots back to, and previous to, my grandfather, Henry Sharman. He was born and raised in Sheffield, trained as an engraver. He came to Winnipeg MB about 1910 or 1911 and died there in 1947. I do not know any more.
I have had contact so far from six Sharmans and none of them know where they came from except a Dr. Ken Sharman in Glasgow. I found a daughter of my grandfather's brother Campbell. Her name is Judy Sharman and currently resides in Salisbury Eng.
I would like to go back to the UK in the next year or so and would be interested in any information that you might have.

Subject: Family History Search - Henry Sharman
Date: Sat, 11 Jan 1997 14:25:19 -0800
From: Local Studies

Further to your E-mail of 6 January 1997 regarding your grandfather's family, the 3 April 1881 census records show a Henry Sharman aged 2 months at 112 Industry Road, Sheffield.
I can not confirm that it is 'your' Henry Sharman. Henry was living with his father, George, who was born in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, and his mother Jessie, who was born in Lincolnshire. With them was George's widowed mother, Ann, aged 73 years, born in Worksop. The 1871 census reveals that Ann's husband, George, came from Worksop too.
The same family is in the 1891 census, now living at No.124 Industry Road. Henry was not with them on census night. If he had died then he was not your ancestor. If he had died it would be recorded in the St.Catherine's House Index to births, marriages and deaths (Archives Department, 52 Shoreham Street, Sheffield S1, or St.Catherine's House, 10 Kingsway, London WC2B 6JP). The index must be consulted in person. Your library could tell you whether there is a local copy. Researchers in the UK will search the index for a fee.
The 1891 census record for 124 Industry Road lists Henry Sharman's brothers - George C., William, John C. , Charles D. , Frederick and Robert. There was no Colin or Campbell, unless they were the second names of George and John.
The trade directories for the late 1890s/early 1900s do not list Henry Sharman, engraver.
The computer database called 'Family Search' consists of indexes compiled by the Mormon Church (mainly using parish registers). They include baptisms, birth and marriage entries from church records. The Family History Association of Canada, PO Box 398, West Vancouver, BC V7V 3PI, will tell you where there is a facility.

I'm seeking information on the family of a deceased uncle, Jack Sharman.
Jack was born in 1910, his father Frederick probably around 1890. Both probably lived in London/Kent.

I am descended from Thomas SHERMAN/SHEARMAN (d.1493) of Diss, Norfolk and Yaxley, Suffolk. My SHERMAN ancestors migrated to the US in 1636.
There is a SHERMAN mailing list. As far as I know, all the suscribers are in the US. Some have been to the UK and are researching there. To subscribe, send SUB SHERMAN to Leave the subject blank and turn off your signature.

They also have a "snail mail" newsletter for which they request a donation. They are active and friendly. It was through them that I learned of the "Ancestral Roots" book.

Subject: Sharman family tree

My name is Howard Sharman. I live at Warragul, Victoria Australia. My great grand parents arrived in Australia by ship in 1855. One of my brothers has a family tree and knows the name of the ship. We have no idea what part of England they came from.
I think there were two brothers Robert and George with ten children. One child died on the ship and was buried at sea. When they arrived in Australia, they settled in Sheffield in the state of Tasmania. My grand father was a Robert Sharman. Robert had four children, Elvyn, Cecil (my father) Robert and Gladys (Mrs E. EDWARDS). All of that family are now dead. Cecil had nine children of which I am number four.
My mother was born in Winford near Bristol Co. Sommerset (now Avon). Her surname is STARK. Her father was Harry Olethus STARK. Some STARKs still live in Yatton.

I hope we can complete some blank areas in your family tree. Jim Sharman whose name you have is a direct relative although I have never met him.
I would love to know more of my British ancestory. Do any of the people on your list know of the migrants to Australia in 1855?
I was a Public Accountant specialising in Taxation, and am now a pastor of a Brethren church "Morwell Gospel Chapel". The chapel has its own home page. Back to list of correspondants

Subject: About "Arms" and "Crest"

It was nice that youre having investigation on your family as a hobby.
I do have access to a family tree that has been, as I heard, completed quite well several generations back. Might be interesting for you
My connection: My father, Peter Martin, was British, born in Durham. He had three brothers, David, Derek and Michael, but my mother is Norwegian.
Im born and raised in Norway, and since my father died in 1966, weve lost the everyday contact with my family in England. Thats the reason why my English is so poor. (Not meaning that I dont have contact with my family at all...I just fancy Italy and southern Europe more when Im travelling)
...And I have a brother,younger, named Paal Martin. My mother is Hilde Karin Sharman (Born Hareide).
The reason Im writing to you now this time is a bit special.
Since Im getting married in august 1997, you gave me some sort of an idea, to use the shield symbol for my family. You mentioned something about Arms and Crest on your web page about the Sharmans. I wonder if there is any possibility to have this verified to be Sharmans, and then to have a print of it.
Id like to use it first for my invitations to our family and friends. Hope this is possible, or maybe you can connect me to someone who can give me a futher guidence.
PS Excuse my poor English

Our branch of the family stems from Norfolk to my knowledge. I was born in Norwich, the recent family city. My father has a much better knowledge of the geneaology than I and I must get this documented. Your initiative will act as a catalyst!
You may not be aware of the new series starting on ITV on monday evening, 2030hrs UK time called simply "SHARMAN" It would appear to be a 4 part crime series with Nick Sharman as a private investigator.
My parents exchanged a series of letters with a Mrs Diane Haining in late 1992. I believe that they are no longer in communication. There is a fair bit of repetition but I will copy out the summaries and forward them to your Belgian address if you wish.
There appears to be a trace back to 1788 in Aldeby, Norfolk with a shift in about 1820 of about 8 miles to Belton, Suffolk (only just! - circa 5 miles SW Gt Yarmouth)
I am going back to my parents Re a distantly and badly remembered family tale that it was a Sharman living under a boat at Gorleston that is the inspiration for Dickens's Peggoty's brother in David Copperfield.
I found it quite thought provoking that my sons, Anthony and Gregory are the only carriers of the name from a marriage in 1888!
Please confirm that you wish the hardcopy sent to Belgium. I would also like to know how you get on, and so I am sure would my parents. I realise that you will not know that I presently live in Oxfordshire (North). If research is needed here let me know.

Kay Gittins
I am a descendant of Nehemiah Sharman, a goldminer who came to Australia with his wife in about 1853. Unfortunately, Nehemiah died from a large abscess on the liver in 1862, aged 32. He was reportedly born in Sotherton, Suffolk, England and married his wife, Sophia there in 1851.
I have only just started researching this branch of the family, but I have heard of a few interesting Sharman's here in Australia over the years. One of these was Jimmy Sharman, a side-show boxing champion of some renown. Supposedly he was related to our branch of the family, but I have still to prove this.
I would only be too happy to supply further details if you are interested and would love to hear of your ancestory.

I am interested in the name Sharman. My ancestor Mary wife of John Sharman also sometimes spelt Shearman, Sherman was transported to Australia in 1810 arriving 1811. She was from Middlesex and was working opposite the Bank of England. She may have been pregnant or had a young child at the time of her transportation- the child was Esther. Does this connect with any information you have come across? I know her maiden name and if it were helpful I would tell it.
Which country are you in and which county in England do your Sharman's come from? Thanks in advance for any assistance

I was born in Hampshire England. My fathers family all come from Coventry. Have you have come across any information on Sharman's from the Coventry area?
If you can give me any pointers as to where to start I would be most grateful.
If you would like information on my family "Sharman" let me know what you need.
Clive Sharman

>Clive, The best place to start is with your oldest surviving relatives. Ask them to tell stories about when they were young, and (as gently as possible) get them to remember the names all their parents and grandparents, with rough dates and places of b, d and m if possible. On line, try Cyndi's pages. The International Genealogical Index created by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints will help. There is probably an IGI site near you. Before you go, find the place of marriage of one of your ancestors, or you will not be able to use the index.
>Thanks for the offer of information on your family, but honestly, I have enough work trying to find out my own ancestors! If each of us works back from what they know, maybe some of us will meet up a few generations back.

Ian Sharman
I don't know whether we're related, but here's my details: My name is Ian James Sharman. I am the proprietor of a presentation & training company in Glasgow, Scotland. My web site will tell you more about my business.
I was born in Sale, England. My grandfather Clifford Sharman, sadly died in 1996. He originated from Ilkeston, in the East Midlands of England.
Do you know whether your family originated from the East or West of England? Are there any family traditions? Only family tradition I can think of is 'dominating' fathers (!), and spreading the family name far-and-wide: descendants of my grandfather are now based around Manchester, England; Sheffield, England; Blackpool, England; Glasgow, Scotland (me) and Sydney, Australia.
