Re: JENKING in St Just in Roseland and Birmingham England.
Great to hear from you - yes I can confirm what you have told me.Shadrach was baptised Sharrock - his Christian name changed around the time he emigrated.He was born in 1792 in St Mawes (in the parish of St Just in Roseland)and worked in Falmouth docks before going to America. He was the son of Ann Sharrock and Joseph Jenking, and Joseph was the son of Joseph Jenking and Ursula Butson. That Joseph was the son of William Jenking and Matilda Sharrock, all from St Mawes except Ursula, who came from Padstow.I can go back further and with more detail if you want to contact me directly.
I have just recently got in touch with some other of Shadrach's descendents from Walkerville, Ontario.
Look forward to hearing from you, all the best, Sheilagh
