Sherriff, ?

A Mr Sherriff makes four appearances in Lawrence Rawstorne‘s diaries in March and August 1685 when the diarist was there on business, from which it appears he might have kept an inn in the town. He was in Preston on 9 April 1689, when he appears to have been serving as a taxation commissioner; he was again in Preston on 26 September 1689, when taxation was again being discussed.
