Origin of the Name Sheeran

The ancient history of the name Sheeran was found in the archives. Variants of the name Sherin include Sheeran, Syron and Sheerin. This name in Irish is O'Sirin and the latter variants are the anglicized forms of this. This sept came from Cork and Ulster. A sept or clan was a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. The sept of O'Sirin originated in County Cork, where it is now extinct, and in Counties Donegal and Fermanagh in Ulster Province. An early record of the name is found in the Fiants between 1550 and 1600 as O'Sherin and O'Shirine, all from County Cork. By 1659 in the Petty's Census the name is recorded in County and Donegal, appearing in Lifford as one of the principal Irish names. In 1665 it appears in the Hearth Money Rolls for County Monaghan and by the eighteenth century had spread to Counties Westmeath, Limerick and Dublin. In modern times the name is now numerous throughout the four Provinces.
The Sheeran coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Sheeran descendants.
