My great-great-great-great grandpa was John Sherard Coleman, married 1818 at St. Margarets, Leicester to Henrietta Charlotte L. Mangeon. He died in 1828, and his son, John Sherard, my great-great-great grandpa, was born in 1828 in Bitteswell, Leicester. I also know that John Sherard the first (so to speak) had another son, Edmund Thomas Coleman b. 1824, who was part of the first party of white men to climb Mt. Baker, Washington, USA.
Now, I have a bit more information, that John Sherard I's father was Henry Coleman (1739-1794) and his mother was Hester. Henry Coleman's father was Henry Coleman (1705-1779) and his mother was Anne Freeman (1703-1761).
Does anyone else have any information about these Colemans? I would be very interested. My great-great grandpa was Charles Edmond S. Coleman (1858-1952). He was born in London and immigrated to Canada in 1914.
