An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The surname Shedy 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."

Shedy Early Origins



The surname Shedy 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 Shedy family dates back to this ancient period.
