Family: Sarah Mitchell b. 14 Oct 1621, d. 5 Apr 1700

Biography:
  • Samuel Sherman was baptized on 12 Jul 1618 in Dedham, Essex, England.1
  • Samuel arrived in America in 1634.
  • As of 1635 Samuel lived in Wethersfield, Connecticut.
  • He married Sarah Mitchell, daughter of Matthew Mitchell and Susan Wood, s 1641.2
  • Samuel Sherman was called Honorable.1
  • He died in 1700.
  • Samuel came from Dedham, Essex, England in 1634 with his brother, Rev. John Sherman, and first cousin, Capt. John Sherman. He came to Wethersfield with his father, and probably married Sarah there. The Colonial Record shows: "On 1 May 1637 the Connecticut Colony declared war. Samuel Sherman served in the Pequot War from John Oldham's settlement at Payquag, or Wethersfield."
    With the Mitchells and others, he removed to Stamford. He was there in 1640-16401, as one of the original proprietors.
    He appears first on Stratford Records in 1650. There he lived at a place called "Old Mill," later Bridgeport. He was usually called "Mr." -- a title of respect -- and sometimes was called "the Worshipful Mr. Sherman."
    He was on the list of freemen at Stratford October 1669: "A list of the Freemen of Stratford as they are reputed amonst us, 8 mth., 7 d., [16]'69 ... Mr. [Samuel] Sherman..."
    On 9 May 1672, the General Court granted liberty to Mr. Samuel Sherman, Lt. William Curtiss, Joseph Judson and John Minor, themselves and their associates, to erect a plantation at Pomperaug (Woodbury).
    Samuel was Deputy from Stratford to the Connecticut Legislature in October 1660. The Colonial Record shows: "Mr. Nathan Gold and Mr. Samll Shearman chosen assistants - General Assembly, Hartford, 12 May 1664." Samuel also served as Assistant in 1662, 1663 and 1667. He was Commissioner for Stratford 1671-1675, for Stratford and Woodbury 1675-1679, and for Stratford 1680-1684.
    In 1685 he removed to Fairfield, where he located in the Stratfield section. He served as Commissioner for Fairfield 1685-1688. On 14 December 1690, friend Samuel Sherman was named an overseer in the will of John Pickett of Stratford.
    Samuel died at Fairfield on 5 April 1700. On 10 September 1700, an agreement was made between his surviving children and heirs to divide his estate; Matthew and Edmund were then dead.
    Roy Sherman shows that the first four children were born at Stamford; the last five, at Stratford.1
