February 5, 1824, London, England.

Sheppard graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1855, and ordained the next year. He wrote for musical publications, and for the Dictionary of National Biography, and for many years was precentor and editor for the Doncaster Church Choral Union. His duties as Rector of Thurnscoe, Yorkshire (West Riding) limited the effort he could spend on music, but he found time to collaborate with Sabine Baring-Gould to publish Songs of the West, containing folk songs from Devon and Cornwall. In March 1901, he was living in Oxford St. Giles.
