John was the son of John and Sarah Sheldrick. He was born in Cambridge on 20 November 1845 and grew up on Gothic Street – his father worked as a labourer. By the age of 25 [1871] he was working as a servant at Trinity College and living in the college.

He married Ann Rebecca Smith in 1874 and they had at least four children together: Amy [1875-1976], Ernest John [1877-1955], Harry Denton [1878-1879] and Edward Henry [1880-1958].

The family lived at 5 Park Street [1881] and then 4 New Square [1891/1901]. John was a University Marshall for nearly thirty years. He died on 24 June 1902 at New Square. He left an estate valued at £743 19s.

Harry was the third of the four Sheldrick children. He was born on 14 October 1878 and died on 21 December 1879 aged 14 months old.

Ann Sheldrick was living at Hawthorn Cottage on St Andrews Road in 1911. The census described her as a widow living on a pension from the University. She went to live in Bedford with her daughter Amy and her husband Walter Gray who was a warehouseman for a newsagent. She died in Bedford in 1934 aged 90 years old.
