Sherburne Wilson was born on 6 Jun 1635 in Boston, Massachusetts to parents William Wilson and Patience Grindall. He married Abigail Osgood on 9 Sep 1657 in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Children: Joseph, Mary, Samuel, John, Abigail, William, Deborah, Christopher. He died on 29 Jan 1704 in Boston, Massachusetts.

"Wilson apprenticed as a carpenter and made a living as a cooper. In 1659 he sued his master Wilson Douglass for failing to provide him with clothing and tools of the trade at the end of his apprenticeship, as was customary. Because of the importance of his barrels, Wilson was allowed to cut large amounts of white oak from the town commons. In 1681 the town complained that he was not cutting up the unused parts of the trees for firewood and leaving them on the green.

Having some money in his family, Wilson sold his first home and built this one by the river. A shop that Wilson built was later the starting point for Thomas Dennis who became famous for his cabinetry and woodworking.

The Sherborne Wilson House at 6 South Main Street was built in 1685 and is listed in the National Historic Register of Historic Places." [1]

The "r" probably looked like a "v" to the typist.]
