Ken Thanks for looking up Partis for me, they don't seem that widespread do they? Checked on Ancestry and apparently the North Kent ones are not related to us Northumbrians.You live and learn, eh? Loux

Ken, just a bit of info for you. According to a book on the origins of british surnames I was looking at in the local archives Sharman is one of the many forms of Shearman and is exactly what you imagine. (Sheep shearers) I too have Sharman/ Shearman in my tree originating in Suffolk. I have a marriage certificate and one of the witnesses is described as Elizabeth Shearman/Sharman, the bride's aunt. Thanks to the vicar for the extra info, it helped track down the Bride's Mother.
