Agnes Butler1

b. 1521, d. before 14 October 1580
     Agnes Butler was born in 1521 in Dedham, Essex, England.1 She married Henry Sherman, son of Thomas Sherman and Jane Waller, before 1540.1,2 Agnes Butler died before 14 October 1580 in Colchester, Essex, England.1 She was buried on 14 October 1580 in Dedham, Essex, England.1
     Agnes was also known as Butter.

Compiler's note: Many on-line genealogies show Agnes Butter married to both Henry Rolfe and Henry Sherman. That Agnes, daughter of Thomas was married to Henry Rolfe seems clear based on Thomas' reference to his daughter Agnes Rolfe in his will dated 20 Aug. 1555. A marriage to Henry Sherman for the same woman seems unlikely as the birthdates of the Sherman and Rolfe children overlap. That the women were related is likely, because Henry Sherman was an executor of Thomas Butter's will. It is possible that there was only one Agnes, but I have not seen a chronology that makes this possible.3

     There was another Mary Brook who married Joshua Moses 28 Jun 1722 in Simsbury. Both marriages are recorded in the vital records, but there is no way to tell to which family each Mary belongs. Both were young women of childbearing age. I am guessing that this Mary belongs to this family, but so far have no proof either way.
