Here you will find much of the information that I have accumulated about many different Sheeky families.
So the site mainly covers the English and Irish entries for surnames originally written (or later transcribed) as -
Sheeky, Sheekey, Sheehy, Sheekly, Sheekie, Sheety, Sheeley, Shekey, Sheckey, Sheakey, Sheehys, Cheakey, Cheekey, Cheeky, Shiekey, Streekey, etc
- from the days when spelling was very flexible.
The main locations covered are Bradford, Birkenhead, Barrow in Furness, Chester, Stalybridge, Ashton under Lyne, London - and Boyle, Roscommon
It is not a full, worldwide, one-name study but it does get close and provides a large percentage of the known references to this group of surnames.
I hope you find something here that is a small help when researching your family history. Certainly tracing my mother’s family history has been an experience that has put today’s minor problems into some sort of perspective.
All of data here is freely available - and if you check out our commercial links it will help keep the web site going - good luck and fruitful searching.
