SHEER OF NORTH PETHERWIN

 

The will of Degory Sheer of Treneglos, dated 1704, mentions his “Cozen” Richard Sheer of North Petherwin, mason, as well as Richard’s son Degory.[1] The testator was evidently a son of Nicholas Sheer of Treneglos, husbandman, being granted administration of the latter’s estate in 1684.[2] It is possible that this Nicholas was also the father of the Nicholas Sheer who married Phillip Seccomb at North Petherwin in 1657.
