Grace Makin1,2

b. say 1578
Father*Tobias Makin3
Mother*Katherine Westbrome3
Birth*say 1578Grace Makin was born say 1578, possibly in Fingringhoe, Essex County, England.3
Marriage*circa 1597She married Edmund Sherman of Dedham, County Essex, son of Edmund Sherman and Ann Pellett, circa 1597 in England.1,2
Religion*Although Grace's husband had sent their son John to Immanuel College in Cambridge for his religious training, Edmund was a Puritan. He felt so persecuted by the established Church of England that he and Grace left everything and fled with their children and some townsmen to New England, where he could worship according to the dictates of his conscience.4
Immigration*April 1634Grace and Edmund Sherman, with their sons John and Samuel and daughter Grace and the 21-year-old grandson of Edmund's Uncle Henry, John Sherman, may have sailed from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, in the ship Elizabeth during " the last of April 1634" for New England. Their daughter Hester and her husband Andrew Ward had immigrated with their children the previous year. Only the Sherman Genealogy source reported a name of the Sherman's ship and a date of the family's embarkation and immigration to New England. A John Sherman, age 20, is the only passenger with a Sherman surname who appears on the ship Elizabeth's April 1634 passenger list. Whether he was Edmund and Grace's son John or Edmund's cousin John, or another John Sherman altogether is not known. The Sherman Genealogy also stated, incorrectly, that because Edmund's wife was not mentioned it was therefore probable she had died at Dedham, England before 1634 and that the couple's oldest child Edmund, who was 34 years of age in 1634, had immigrated with the family. Additional research showed us that son Edmund remained in England, and his mother Grace, who was alive, immigrated. All of the passengers listed who signed an oath of allegiance in preparation for their immigration signed at Ipswich, County Suffolk , which is also the embarkation place noted in the Sherman Genealogy source.4,5,6,7,8
(Mother) ResidenceJune 1634 In June 1634 the family arrived at Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), where their daughter Hester and her family had settled the previous year, and it was there in Watertown that Edmund and Grace's son John, "under a tree," preached his first sermon as an assistant to the pastor, Mr. George Phillips.9,4
(Mother) Relocation29 May 1635Grace and Edmund Sherman were among the group of members from the church at Watertown who were dismissed on 29 May 1635 to go and form a new church in Wethersfield, New Haven Colony, Connecticut, with their son John Sherman as their first minister. Many others in their extended family also made the move.9,4,10
(Wife) Deathbetween 29 October 1640 and May 1641Grace became a widow when Edmund Sherman died between 29 October 1640 and May 1641.3,4
