Shirtleff History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Shirtleff family


The surname Shirtleff was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1379 when John de Shirclyf held estates in that shire near Sheffield.
