SHERLOCK Family History

This name, with variant spelling Shurlock and Scurlock, derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century 'scir' meaning bright or fair, plus 'loc', a lock of hair, (medieval England 'Shirloc'), and was originally given as a nickname to one with bright shining hair. The surname is first recorded at the beginning of the 11th Century, (see below). One, Ralph Shirloic appears in the 1159 'Pipe Rolls of London'. The Sherlocks are now regarded as one of the great Anglo - Norman families of Ireland where they first established themselves following the Norman invasion of 1170. The family acquired large estates of land in Leinster, and in early Medieval records pertaining to County Meath various archaic spelling of the name are recorded, for example, Scurlok and Scherlog...

    My great grandfather Peter J Sherlock came to the United States with his older brother Thomas Sherlock in 1890. I believe they were from Meath. Enfield possibly. Through family research and Ancestry. I believe their parents were Patrick Sherlock and Mary Smyth. They had three other children too. Michael, Jane, Patrick. I was hoping to find other Sherlock’s still in Ireland with a matched DNA but couldn’t find any. Very disappointing. I was hoping to find a direct link back to family in Ireland.

    I am trying to find my gg grandfather Mathew Sherlock from Doon, Kilfree, County Sligo. He was born in 1810 and transported to Australia for abduction in 1829. I do not have any other facts/records about his Irish heritage but lots of stuff from Australia.

    Hello Sherlock family members! Am trying to find out more about Sherlocks in Ireland during the 1400s. I am descended from Catherine Sherlock who married Richard III O'Shee. Appreciate any resources you may have about that era and Catherine's heritage. Thank you in advance!
