An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The surname Shedey is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It is derived from the Old English word "scydd," meaning "hovel, shed," and thus refers to a "dweller at the hovel."

Shedey Early Origins



The surname Shedey was first found in Yorkshire where bearers of the name have lived since early times. During the years after the Conquest, England was dominated by the Normans, and the presence of Anglo-Saxon surnames was dwarfed by the sudden influx of French. Many of these surnames survived, however, and the written history of the Shedey family dates back to this ancient period.
