bullet Daniel Shed was born about 1596 in Finchingfield, Essex, England. He died on 8 Feb 1656/57 in Finchingfield, Essex, England. From "Daniel Shed Genealogy" by Frank E. Shedd and J. Gardner Bartlett: "Daniel was born about 1596, doubtless in Finchingfleld, where the registers before 1617 are missing, so the record of his baptism is lost. He was evidently named for his uncle Daniel10 Shed. He became a yeoman in Finchingfield and resided, at least at one period, in the manor of Cornish Hall (which is located about three miles north of the church), as at a manor court with view of frankpledge held there 19 May 1627, the court rolls show that Daniel Shedd and James Chaplyn were assessors of fines of the manor. (Court Rolls of Cornish Hall in Honour of Clare, Duchy of Lancaster, Bundle 120, No.1843, Public Record Office, London.) That Daniel" Shed was held in good esteem in his parish is appar-ent from the fact that he held in the church from 1631 to 1635 the office of questman (now termed sidesman). As the eldest son, he was made the residuary legatee and executor of his father's will in 1637, as previously related. In Feb. 1641/2, Parliament sent a manifesto throughout England, to test public opinion, protesting against any influence in the Government by the Church of Rome. Copies were sent to the constables of every parish in the country, who were ordered to show or read it to every male inhabitant over eighteen years of age, to list the names of all those persons who signed it or assented, and also to list the names of all who refused to sign. These lists were soon returned to Parliament, and many of them are still preserved, giving the names of all males in a parish over eighteen years of age. Among these so-called Protestation Rolls of 1642, which are preserved at the Houses of Parliament, are those for all the parishes in Hinckford Hundred, County Essex, including Finchingfleld for which over two hundred names appear, among them that of "Danyell Shead." He evidently continued in Finchingfield until his death where he was buried 8 Feb. 1056/7, leaving no will, nor was any administration taken out on his estate. He was about sixty years of age at the time of his decease."
Parents: Thomas Shed and Katherine.

He was married to Sarah about 1617. Children were: Daniel Shedd.


bullet Thomas Shed was born about 1574 in Great Easton, Essex, England. He was baptized on 13 Mar 1574 in Great Easton, Essex, England. He died about Sep 1637 in Finchingfield, Essex, England. From "Daniel Shed Genealogy" by Frank E. Shedd and J.Gardner Bartlett; "Thomas was baptized at Great Easton, County Essex, 13 Mar. 1574/5, but when an infant was taken by his parents in their removal into the adjoining town of Thaxted where he 'was brought up, and like his father and grandfather he became a husbandman or yeoman or farmer. Soon after he became of age he married and settled in Finchingfield in Hinckford Hundred, County Essex, a rural parish of which the church lies five miles east of Thaxted Church, the two parishes being separated only by the parishes of Little Sampford and Little Bardfield. Unfortunately the parish registers of Finch-ingfield before 1617 are lost, although completely preserved from the latter year, so that the record of the marriage of Thomas10 Shed and the baptisms of his children are not found, but their names are supplied by his will.
Finchingfield is about forty-five miles north-east from London by charming motor road through Chigwell, Ongar and Great Dunmow, the last-named place, nine miles distant, being the nearest railroad station. The parish is rather flat and low, covers over eight thousand acres, has a population of about fifteen hundred, and near the centre and church is a large village built about Finchingfield Green. The church, located on a slight hill, is a large and ancient structure of flint, consisting of chancel with sidechapels, long nave with aisles, north and south porches, and a square western tower with embattled parapet, formerly surmounted by a lofty spire which was blown down in 17O2. In the tower there is a chime of eight bells requiring restoration. In the chapels are several fine altar tombs of families who were lords of the manors in ancient times. There are several manors in the parish, of which Spains Hall and Cornish Hall are the most impor-tant. Finchingfield was the birthplace of the emigrant Daniel Shed and the home of his father and grandfather.
Thomas Shed was the first of the family to locate in Finchingfield, and all the Sheds there in the seventeenth century were descended from him. As "Old Thomas Shed" he was buried there 9 Sept. 1637, leaving the following will, literally copied: In the name of God, Amen, the fowertene daye of August 1637, I Thomas Sheade of Fynchingfleld in the Countie of Essex, Hus-bandman, beinge of good & perfect remembrance, thankes be to Almightie God therfor, Do make and ordayne this my Laste will and testement in maner and forme followinge.

Parents: Thomas Shedd and Usula Richardson.

He was married to Katherine about 1596. Children were: Daniel Shed.

She was married to Robert Robbins on 3 Jan 1720 in Groton, Massachusetts.


bullet Samuel Shedd was born on 13 Aug 1660 in Billerica, Massachusetts. He died about Oct 1723 in Groton, Massachusetts. From "Daniel Shedd Genealogy" by Frank E. Shedd (Shedd Family Association, Boston, 1921): ". . . little can be learned of (Samuel's) career though it probably did not differ much from that of his brothers. He took the oath of fidelity in 1677 and was thus admitted early to the rights of a freeman. His name is found in a tax rate for Billerica in 1688 in the sum of 2s-2d. His first two children were born in Chelmsford, Mass., but it is presumable that the Indian massacres in the summer of 1690 and again two years later caused him to give up his settlement on the frontier and seek the greater protection afforded in Billerica, little as that was, for the next child's birth is on the records of Billerica. He appears to have resided later for about eight years in Chelmsford and then after 1702 in Groton, Mass., where all his later years were spent. He was a man of good standing and possessed of considerable property in that part of Groton since 1753 Pepperell, and he died in Groton about Oct. 1723. His will dated 5 Oct. 1723, just after the death of his son Daniel, and lodged 13 Nov. 1723 has an opening part showing a very religious spirit controlling him. He devises to his beloved wife Elizabeth, then to his son Samuel he gives "Upland and meadow near Baddecook and burnt meadow also a meadow at Cow-pond Brook &c all in Groton." to the heirs of his son "Daniel Shead" 40 shillings, and the same to his son Jonathan in full of his share. to his daughters, Elizabeth Robins 5 shillings, Mary Gilson 40 shillings, Hannah Green 40 shillings, Sarah Hutchins 5 pounds, and Esther Pearce 50 shillings, all of them having previously received something. to his youngest daughter Abigail Shead 18 pounds to be paid at her marriage or when twenty-one years of age. Hes youngest son John was residuary legatee of all his buildings and land, his oxen and other cattle, etc., and said son and his mother were appointed executors of the will (which was signed with a mark)." Parents: Daniel Shedd and Elizabeth.

He was married to Elizabeth Bowers in 1688. Children were: Elizabeth Shedd.


bullet Thomas Shedd was born in 1545 in Debden, Essex, England. He died in 1612 in Great Easton, Essex, England. From "Daniel Shed Genealogy" by Frank E. Shedd and J. Gardner Bartlett: Thomas was born in Debden, County Essex, in 1545, and was living there at the time of his marriage in 1572. During the next four years he resided in the adjoining parish of Great Easton, and in 1576 moved into the adjacent larger town of Thaxted where he continued about a score of years. While living here he inherited by the will of his father in 1s84/5 four acres of land called "The Lees," an enclosed field called "Mays" and a legacy of £20 in money. He later returned to Great Easton, where he died in 1612, aged about sixty-seven years. In various records he is termed a husbandman [farmer]. Great Easton is a rural village and parish comprising about twenty-five hundred acres, mostly well cultivated, and with a population of about one thousand. There are two ancient manors, viz., the small Manor of Blamsted Hall, and the principal Manor of Great Easton. The church of Great Easton is an ancient stone structure of mixed styles of architecture from the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries, and its parish registers are preserved from 1558. Thaxted has always been a more populous and important place, and existed as a town even at the Roman period; about 1555 it was created a borough and market town, and was in ancient times an important center of the iron trade; but the corporate charter was annulled in 1687. Thaxted covers over six thousand acres, has a population of about two thousand, and has quite a village near the ancient church which is a large and fine flint and stone structure with buttressed and embattled walls, and a western tower surmounted by a lofty croketed spire. The registers date from 1538. The ancient village Guild hall and the castellated manor house of Horham Hall, two miles southwest of the church, are picturesque edifices. The socialist Countess of Warwick is now the principal landowner and the patron of the vicarage in which she has placed a socialist clergyman who flies a red flag in the church to the perturbation of the community. A Thaxted litigation furnishes some interesting information about Thomas9 Shedd. From the bills of complaint, answers, replications, and voluminous interrogatories and depositions in the matter, the following facts are gleaned in the case of Cutts vs. Armiger and Sparrow. In 1570, Sir John Cutts, Knt., lord of the Manor of Horham Hall in Thaxted, removed for some years from Thaxted and leased for forty-one years a large farm in the manor, with farm houses, to one Edward Armiger who settled there. On 29 Sept. 1579 the latter privately sub-leased part of his farm for nine years to Thomas Shedd, a few years later privately mortgaged the farm to a nephew, one Robert Sparrow, and afterwards publicly conveyed a part of the residue of his term to one Richard Clark. In 1584 Sir John Cutts resumed residence at Horham Hall, and desiring the use of Armiger's farm he bought back the term of Armiger and the interest of Clark, both of whom doubtless exacted a high price from the knight. After completing this transaction, the latter was confronted with the to him undisclosed encumbrances to Shedd and Sparrow. Sir John then brought suits in equity against Armiger and Sparrow in June 1584, both in the Court of Chancery and the Court of Star Chamber, alleging the purported conveyances to Shedd and Sparrow were fraudulent. Among the interrogatories by Cutts to Armiger the eighth dealt with Shedd, viz: "What is Thomas Shedde named in your answer, where does he dwell, what part of the premises does he hold, by what assurance, for what period, at what date and at what rent? When, where and by whom was the alleged deed made and who were the witnesses?". In reply Armiger deposes: "Thomas Shedd named in interrogatory is a husbandman dwelling in Thaxted, and deponent granted to him the greatest part of the premises by indenture of lease to said Shead for nine years for a certain yearly rent therein specified, and previous to the mortgage to Sparrow. But defendant received no fine [or cash payment] for this lease on which there were no agreements other than as specified in said indenture which was written by one Barnard of Stortford [Bishop's Stortford, Co. Herts], a scrivener; and one Richardson and another Barnard were witnesses." "Thomas Shedde of Thaxted, County Essex, husbandman, of the age of forty years, deposes 3-0 Jan. 1585/6. He knoweth the complainant and hath seen the defendant Sparrow, and knoweth the farm and lands in Thaxted which Edward Armiger had by lease of Sir John Cutts. The deponent states that he is the same Thomas Shedd referred to in the inter-rogatory, and further states that said Armiger did lease the greatest part of said farm to him this deponent for the term of nine years, which lease is yet in being and in force, and of said term there are yet enduring and to come two years and as much more as unto the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel next ensuing [29 Sept. 1586]. And deponent sayeth that he has occupied said leased part of said farm in his own tenure and occupation, and dwelt upon the same by virtue of said lease." (Star Chamber Proceedings, Elizabeth, C-6-39 and C-77-5; also Town Depositions in Chancery, Bundle 182.) The above farm became known as "Armigers," still bears that name, and the mansion is on the north-westerly side of the highway from Broxted to Thaxted, half-way between the churches of these parishes and at the junction of a driveway to Horham Hall which is a quarter of a mile behind "Armigers." In the suit in 1584 between John Cutts and Edward Armiger the latter states the lease was made in 12 Elizabeth [1570] through a fine; and a fine is recorded, made in Easter, 12 Elizabeth, between Arthur Armiger and William Frevell, querants, and John Cutts and wife Anne, deforciants, of two dwellinghouses, two gardens, one hundred and forty acres of arable land, twenty acres of meadow, sixty acres of pasture and six acres of woodland, in Thaxted, County Essex; consideration £372. (Feet of Fines, Essex, Easter, 12 Elizabeth, Record Office, London.) This fine must be the one referred to by Edward Armiger, and the querants mentioned were evidently feoffees acting for him, Arthur Armiger being his son. Fines made through feoffees were a common practice, the exact nature and details of the transaction appearing only in the inden-tures.
The mansion still called "Armigers" was always occupied during his tenure from 1570 to 1584 by Edward Armiger himself, according to his own statements in the suit; and as Thomas Shedd states that after lie subleased from Armiger in 1579 the "greatest part" of said farm that he "dwelt upon same," he must have lived in the other dwellinghouse (with garden) mentioned in the fine. About two hundred yards beyond the mansion of "Armigers," towards Thaxted and on the same side of the highway, is a very ancient cottage, still included in Armiger's Farm and tenanted, and now called "Common Cottage" from its location near some commons land. From its construction and appearance this old house seems to have been built before the reign of Elizabeth (1558) and there is no other old house on Armigers Farm (except the mansion). It is therefore apparent that this "Common Cottage" was the very house occupied several years after 1579 by Thomas Shed, great-grandfather of Daniel Shed [the emigrant to America about 1640]. This house is about forty feet long and fifteen feet deep, with stucco exterior walls and thatched roof. The ground floor is paved and the main room has a huge fireplace. The main story is less than seven feet high, and there being no plastered ceiling, all the curious handhewn timberwork of the second floor is clearly visible.
The will of Thomas Shedd of Great Eystane [Easton], County Essex, husbandman, sick in body but in perfect memory, dated 8 June, 10 James I. (1612). To be buried in the parish churchyard of Great Eystane. To my son Thomas Shedd Ss. 4d. to be paid within three months after my decease by my executors.

bullet Thomas Shedd was born in 1508 in Chawreth, Essex, England. He died in Feb 1584/85 in Debden, Essex, England. From "Daniel Shed Genealogy" by Frank E. Shedd and J. Gardner Bartlett: "Thomas was born in Chawreth (now Broxted), County Essex, in 1508, but when a young man settled in the adjoining rural parish of Debden in Uttlesford Hundred where he passed the rest of his life. This hilly parish covers about forty-five hundred acres, has a population of about eight hundred, and contains six manors, viz: Debden Hall, Deanes, Tendring, Weldbarnes, Molchall, and Amberden hall, the latter located on rising ground in a grove two miles south-east of the church. This church as originally built in the fourteenth century had the form of a cathedral, with nave, aisles, chancel and trancepts, and a central tower over the junction of these members; but the tower fell about 1750, demolishing the transepts and chaneel, and only the latter was rebuilt, and a small bell turret added to the western end of the nave. The structure is partly of stone and partly of brick. The register dates from 1557. Thomas Shed was one of the executors of the will of his father in 1541 as previously related. His name appears at Debden on two subsidy rolls; first in 35 Henry VIII, [1543] when he was taxed 6d., and secondly in 14 Elizabeth [1572) when he paid 6s. on goods rated at £6. (Lay Subsidies, Essex, 109-281 and 111-441, Record Office, London.)
The next mentions found of Thomas Shedd are in connection with some litigation in Debden, which shows that he held lands of the manor of Amberden Hall. In 1582, Thomas Harrison sued Edmund West, Esq., then lord of Amberden Hall, in regard to a dwellinghouse and thirty acres of land known as "Cross Tenement," parcel of said manor. Thomas Shedd was called as a witness by the plaintiff, and on 10 Oct. 1582, at Saffron Walden, gave his evidence. "Thomas Shede of Depden, in the County of Essex, aged seventie fower years or thereabouts, being sworn, deposes: He knows the plaintiff and the defendant and knows the dwelling and land in question which are holden by copy of court roll of the manor of Amberden Hall, and he hath heard by the report of his father, now deceased, that it was a tenement granted by copy of court roll over sixty years now past." (Chancery Depositions, Elizabeth - Charles I, H-53-11.) In 1587, two years after the death of Thomas Shedd, Oliver Buckenham and Katherine his wife sued the above Edmund West in regard to the same "Cross Tenement," and in the bill of complaint they state: "At a court 9f the manor held in September 10 Elizabeth [1568], Thomas Harrison surrendered the premises into the hands of the lord of the manor, according to custom, by the hands of Thomas Shedd and William Woode, then copyholders of said manor, to the use of John Morris and his heirs." (Chancery Proceedings, Elizabeth, B-b19-14.) During the lifetime of Thomas Shedd the Reformation, or revolt from the Church of Rome, was permanently accomplished on the accession of Elizabeth in 1558; and he and his children conformed to the Protestant Established Church of England. He died in Debden at the age of seventy-seven years and was buried there 8 Feb. 1584/5, leaving the following will: "In the name of God Amen, I Thomas Shedd of Depden in the County of Essex, Yeoman, being in good and perfect minde, thanks be to Alimighty God, make and ordayne this my Last Will and testament, Revokinge all other heretofore made, inn manner and form following.

I will to Francis my son 20 nobles [£6:13:4] to be paid by John my son or his heirs within three years after my decease. I will to Thomas my son £2O of money, to be paid by my said son John within one year after my decease.
