Shirley Genealogy & History

Shirley family history records that this is a very ancient Anglo-Saxon surname attached to those living in the parish of Shirley in the English counties of Surrey, Hampshire, and Derbyshire, as well as the West Midlands. The parish name derives from the old English pre-7th-century scir (bright) plus leah (wood, clearing). Among many spelling variants are Shurley, Sherley, Shirleigh, and others. Early settlers listed in the Shirley genealogy include Robert Sherly, who settled in Maryland in 1633, and William Shirley, who settled in Boston in 1740.
