COOPER John Shearsmith John Cooper, shearsmith/scissorsmith. Contact Sonia by
RIBCHESTER John Shearsmith 1720: John Ribchester, sheresmith,scissorsmith, shearman. See Parish Register of Sheffield, Volune VI - 1720 to 1736, lists the death of Sarah Stubbin Redchester and marriage of John Ribchester, sheresmith, and Mary Fisher in 1736. Several of the children are listed as those of John Redchester, shearsmith. I suspect this is correct, he was sheared sheep hence shearman. I have no further information.
