Families covered: Sherington of Cranworth, Sherington of Lacock, Sherington of Medborne, Sherington of Sherington

This family's name appears most commonly to have been spelt 'Sherington' but 'Sherrington' was common also. We have followed the spelling in the Visitation. There is a Sherington in Buckinghamshire and a Sherrington in Wiltshire but the following family appears to have come from a Sherington in the parish of Derham in Norfolk.

  Wikipedia ('William Sharington') provides the details on Sir William but notes that he "left no children behind him". We presume that this means that he dspms as Visitation does show him as having had children.
