Southwell Monor House. Court matrix Ireland

I don’t think I ever posted this picture. It is the manor house on the estate where many of the Shier’s were sent to live in Ireland. It is not far from Adair where there are still many Shier descendants. We took this picture in 2007.

I have added THE SHIER FAMILY 1709-1850.  Larry S Shier transcribed the book and has kindly allowed me to post it here. 

I would like to note though that there are errors in the book.  Particularly in regard to the Henry line.  Henry b. 1746 must have died in Ireland and the Henry that came to New York was born 1730.  This  information is supported by his will and several other things.

Thanks again to Larry.

I have added copies of some Bible Pages that probably came from a Bible owned by my greatgrandfather, Frank Tice Shier.  My cousin, Gerry Shier, has the pages but he kindly loaned them to me to copy.  The pages list many of the people in my part of the George Krauskopf Shier line.  There is also a sheet of birthdates that was with the Bible pages.  Should anyone want copies of the .jpgs just contact me and I will email them to you.

I have added the story written by George Shier about the earliest know ancestors of George Krauskopf Shier.  This article is an update to an earlier Shier history published in the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research magazine in the 1940’s by Florence Shier Roberts.

Please see The Early History of the Shier Family at the right under RECORDS AND FAMILY INFORMATION.

Please forward add any comments or additional information.
