Sherring Genealogy

Welcome to the Sherring Family Tree.

This Sherring family originated in the south of Somerset, England, UK., near the border with Dorset, and over the centuries spread across much of the south of England, with a large number emigrating to Australia and Canada.

The origin of the surname Sherring is not know for sure, but it is generally considered to be a derivation of the name Shearing, a typical countryside occupation. There are many different recorded spellings of this surname mostly coming from Ireland and Scotland, together with a number of Sherring crests.

With nearly 12,000 individuals in my family tree it has become unmanageable for a single web site. Therefore it has been split into a number of smaller sites based on major family groups. This means that inevitably there is some overlapping of surnames.

The names that interest you may also be found in any of these sub-trees, so it's probably worth checking on the Index pages -
