Where did the Irish Sherry family come from? What is the Irish Sherry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Sherry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Sherry family history?

The Sherry Ireland has two distinct sources. In southern Ulster, it was an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Searraigh, "son of Searrach," in turn derived from the Gaelic word "searrach," meaning a "foal." It was also an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Sťartha, "son of Sťartha," that was taken on in Ireland by a Hodnett family of Welsh origin, after they had emigrated to County Cork.

First found in at Courtmacsherry in County Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where they held a family seat, some say before the Anglo Norman invasion of Ireland by Strongbow in 1172.
