My great grandads name was John Edward Shiret born Deptford 1874 and died in Edith Priday Home, Blackheath 1967 age 93yrs.
When is son John Edward got married he had lost his birth certificate and therefore had to have a replacement.Unfortunately the name was then spelt SHERRITT so our family from him and Mary Amelia had/has this spelling.
My father was John Edward's third son - Albert William Sherritt and I am his only daughter.There is only one child from John Edward Sherritt left, his youngest daughter Jean Thompkins.
I have no idea where you come in this line of family, but would be most interested to learn of past and current relatives wherever they are.
Hopefully you will read this message and I look forward to hearing from you.
