Mrs Stella Williams said in a letter dated 16th October 1996,  I was studying the Shearman surnames and noticed that the farther away from Berkley the difference in the spelling appeared . No doubt the local dialect made quite a difference especially as the local clerk who wrote down into the Parish register was semi illiterate and spelt surnames phonetically.
