In case it is of interest to anyone there is a portrait of Mr. A. E. Sherrington posted on

This picture of Mr. A. E. Sherrington appears on page 402 of The Canadian Horticulturist, vol.XXVI, no.10, October 1903. Please see that reference for more details. He was born in the Peel township in Wellington County in Canada. When he was fourteen his father died and left him in charge of the family farm. At age twenty-six he left home and took work on various farms where he could. He later rented a farm near Woodstock for three years. In 1883 he bought one hundred acres near Walkerton and later sold it. Later still he purchased seven acres near Walkerton and resided there as late as 1903. He was involved in horticulture, kept an apple orchard and also had experimental plots of plums and raspberries. Mr. Sherrington had an apiary of about fifty bee hives and a poultry yard. That is all the information I have on this picture. I am not researching this line, just saw the photo and thought I'd post it.
