Sheringham Early Origins



The surname Sheringham was first found in Wiltshire at Sherrington, a village and civil parish on the River Wylye in Wiltshire where remains of a motte-and-bailey castle, presumably from late in the 11th or early in the 12th century can still be found today. By 1252, Sherrington had a parish church dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian in 1341. However the village dates back to 896 when it was listed as Scoranston, but later was spelt Scarenstone in the Domesday Book [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and meant "stone or rock on a steep slope" from the Old English "scir + "wudu". [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Cherrington variant originates in Shropshire at Cherrington, a village in the civil parish of Tibberton and Cherrington which dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Cerlintone and later in 1230 as Cherington. The place name literally means "estate associated with a man called Ceorra," having derived from the Old English personal name + -ing + tun [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
