Sherwin Family History


The name Sherwin in Ireland is often of immigrant origin having been introduced into the Province of Ulster by settlers from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. Sherwin can also be an anglicized form of the Gaelic O'Searbhain sept that was located in County Roscommon. Sharvin and Sharvan are variants.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
