from Buz Ecker: Aris Brass Sherwood married Mary Revell in, probably Dublin 8/12/1799 according to the "First Half of the 1833 Dublin Records" which is housed in the genealogical section of the Four Courts in Dublin. An ivory miniature of him with powdered wig is now in the possession of Aris Brass Sherwood in CA. Evelyn Pyne fell heir to it but since the name was carried on in the family of her uncle, Aris Brass Sherwood, she gave it to him. He had pictures taken of it and one of them is in her files. There is also the leaf of the Family Bible which states the names and dates of birth of their children of whom Robert R. was the eighth.
per Buz Ecker: "Dublin Wills 1270-1800" page 22, in the Four Courts record room in Dublin lists the marriage license of William Sherwood and Mary Brass. The will of George Brass lists his daughter Mary Sherwood, wife of William and grandsons, George, Aris Brass and John Sherwood. The "Parish Register Dublin Marriages 1632-1800" says Mary Revell lived in Castle St. and they were married in St. Werburgh Parish, Dublin by Rev. John Robinson. "Dublin Wills 1270-1800" pg. 779 lists Aris as of "Enniscorthy, Co. Dublin" and calls him "Squire". This belongs to Aris, not William.
