Biography

Some place Grace Makin, daughter of Tobias Makin of Fingringhoe, as the wife of Edmund. Tobias Makin named Edmund Sherman in his will. He also named a daughter as Grace Sherman [not Joan] but he did not state that she was married to Edmund. It is suggested likely Grace was the wife of John Sherman - he died and Grace apparently married three more times - to Thomas Rogers, William Palmer, and lastly to Roger Porter. Various records referring to children of Grace suggests she was not the mother of the children of Edmund Sherman.

The article in The American Genealogist, cited next, proves that Grace was still a Sherman in 1621 when named in her brother's will, and could not have been the wife of John Sherman, Thomas Rogers who had a child baptized in 1617 and Roger Porter - so that research was wrong, too. Tobias Makin also named a Richard Sherman in his will - he did not state that Richard was a grandson but did name him as a son of Edmund Sherman - Richard received 5 £ as did a named grandchild. In the Dedham Parish Register is the following baptism entry: "1608 Oct 16, Richard son of Edmund and Jone Sherman" - so it is obvious that Edmund's wife was Joan - and Richard was their 5th child. [NEGHS Register, Vol 51, p.313]

The American Genealogist, 61:79-82 [Jul-Oct 1985] has an article stating that Joan, daughter of Tobias Makin, married Richard Stone as her only husband, disputing the Sherman research. She was also a generation younger than Edmund Sherman.

This profile perhaps makes the shortcomings of WikiTree as apparent as the most legendary Merovingian. Proceed with caution, and read the biography! I just approved a merge of "Unknown" into "Makin" with serious misgivings, and I apologize if I've made anyone else's life harder that way.

Probably not the wife of Edmund Sherman; see the 1985 _American Genealogist_ article.
