Shaw Genealogy & History

Shaw is an English locational and topographical surname, from the Old English sceaga, which means copse or small forest, and used for someone living near a thicket or other small group of trees. It may also come from several places named Shaw, from that same word, especially in Northern England, with various different spellings before the sixteenth century. Shaw family history begins with Simon de Schage, added to the Berkshire Pipe Rolls in 1191. Shaw genealogy includes such illustrious individuals as Irish playwright and Nobel and Oscar laureate George Bernard Shaw, former astronaut Brewster Shaw, and Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw.
