Isbrandus dictus s(c)hereman. Een Noordhollandse schareman uit 1264.
In a list of inhabitants of Rinnegom, near Egmond in North Holland, compiled in 1264 and copied at the end of the thirteenth century, the peculiar surname sthereman occurs. If read as s<c>hereman, it can be interpreted as the exact and only Dutch cognate of the term Scharmann ‘band-man’ which is known from medieval Germany. S<c>hereman would show the raising of lengthened aa to ee which is typical of the North Holland dialect, and which is attested in the simplex schere ‘share in a common pasture’ from the fourteenth century onwards.
