Per Anderson, he never immigrated to New England. Project protected by the PGM project because of the speculation by older sources that he had.


Robert Sherin was born about 1602, since he was aged 32 in 1634 when he was enrolled at Ipswich as a passenger on the Elizabeth.[1]

No records of Robert Sherin have been found in New England.[1]

Savage believed that his last name may have been "Sherwin." [Savage 4:78]. Anderson wrote, "there is no documentary support for Savage's speculation."

Thanks Joe, good call.
If there is a reason to project protect him (false parents, false origins or false children) we would make him a PGM Adjunct.

Edit: I would make him an adjunct since he has an Great Migration profile, and there is a false statement by Savage regarding him being in New England.

I should know this answer, but right now I'm having brain freeze.

Do we have profiles in PGM who were enrolled in England, but Anderson says no records in New England?

I think the answer is "no." And if so, should this profile have PGM project removed?
