Shepard Genealogy & History

Shepard genealogy is British with Old English origins. It was an occupational name for someone who watched or tended sheep. It derives from the words "sceap" for "sheep" and "hierde" for "herdsman". The modern name Shepard could also occasionally derive from the occupational surname "Shipward", though this is less common. The name first appears in written sources in southern England, including in Cambridgeshire and Staffordshire in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Shepard family history includes early American astronaut Alan Shepard, who was the first American (and the second person) in space in 1961, and inventor David Shepard.
