though he exercised his art for many years. Ames mentions about sixteen heads by him; and there is another, which he has omitted, of John Gadbury, the almanac-maker, who has been represented by no less than four artists. Sherwin perhaps engraved other plates besides portraits. He has done two of Charles II.; one, whole length, prefixed to Ashmole's Order of the Garter. The first works I find by him are William Bridge and William Sermon, M.D. both in 1670; the latest, Judge Powel, in 1711. The Regular Architect of the General Rule of the Five Orders by Vignola, with additions by Michael Angelo, done into English by J. Leake, was printed for W. Sherwin, engraver, 1669.

probably commenced engraver about the time of the Restoration, as not long after he did a plate of Mary Capel, Duchess of Beaufort, from a picture of Walker, and therefore it is likely that he was of some eminence. A head of Matthew Mead, father of Dr. Mead the physician, is the best thing I have seen of him; his works are few—as Sir John Cheke, from an old picture; James Bonnel, Mr. Locke, George Parker, almanac-maker; and five ovals of the family of Rawlinson; the last dated 1709. He also engraved a frontispiece to Greenhill's Art of Embalming, and a head of the author, from a picture by Murray.
