Shea Genealogy & History

Shea is an Irish surname, from the Gaelic O'Seaghdha, often shortened to O'Se. It comes from the Old Gaelic seaghdha, literally meaning hawk-like but also used more figuratively to connote nobility and stately grace. The clan was centered in County Kerry, and Shea family history began in the New World with the journey of Jone and Nicholas Shea to Maryland in 1678. Shea genealogy lays claim to a fair few well-known people, such as Olympic skater Jack Shea, Shea Stadium namesake William Shea, Texas Congressman Gwyn Shea, and New York Yankees and Washington Senators pitcher Francis "Spec" Shea.
