update: merge completed

Sherward-1 and Sherwood-2194 appear to represent the same person because: see comment on Sherwood-2194 (re spelling of maiden name). Sherward-1 was attached as wife of Robert Walton-1546/mother of George Walton-1529 who were born in a different era. They have been detached & Sherward-1 can be merged with Sherwood-2194.
