Sherrington, Old Township of
Prior to 1809, the area north of Hemmingford Township and west of the Seigniory of DeLéry was designated "Tract of Land under consideration for endowing a University". including the southernmost area that was granted to François Baby. The Belden Atlas 1881 called it Sherrington Seigniory but I have not seen any evidence of such a name in previous maps and related documents. It is shown on an 1831 map as sub-divided into concessions. The same map shows the Seigniories of St-Normand and St-James as McCallum's Property (Jas. McCallum owned those seigniories), so it is possible that the Sherrington area was granted to Mr. Baby in a similar manner. One document suggests that the Township included the area of the late granted Seigniories of St-James, St-George, St-Normand and Thwaite but this is debatable. It later became the Paroisse-de-St-Patrice-de-Sherrington.
