The Ipswich Journal – Saturday 20 October 1838
On Friday last, Zachariah Sharman, William Sharman, and James Garrod, three notorious theives, were committed to Ipswich Gaol, for trial, by the sitting Magistrates at Diss, charged with stealing seven turkeys, and two fowls, the property of Mr Marshall, of Wortham.
Zachariah Sharman (b. 1814?) and William Sharman (b. 1813?) were older brothers of Martin’s ancestor Israel Sharman (1816-1891).
