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.
I have an ancestor from Evesham; Thomas Coleman b 1579 married to Katherine Higinson. they arrived in Plymouth in 1635. their children were Edward, John, Noah and Joseph. the parents settled in Hadley, Hampshire, Ma while Edward moved with the group that left Boston to form Barnstable County, Ma. Edward was the founding member of my family line. His descendats stayed in Barnstablr county until My gg grandfathe, James Russell, moved to Troy. N. Y. Perhaps your family may be in some way connected to mine.
Hi Joyce. I guess it's pretty hard to say; my tree doesn't really go back far enough. 1705 is the earliest date for the Colemans. Earlier than 1700 I really have no clue who they were or where they lived.
