The Sheridan Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Sheridan family history parchment:
Sheridans can now be found in every province, though Munster has rather fewer but they came originally from Co.Longford-Granard, with its loughs and prehistoric earthworks. At some point came a general movement into Co. Cavan where they were closely allied to the influential O'Reillys. Cavan is still the area where they are most numerous and it has produced many of their most famous representatives. The name is O Siridean in the Irish, simply-a descendant of Siridean, although the significicance of this personal name is not known. In common with many others, some Sheridan found their paths led to military service abroad. Thomas Sheridan (1684-1746) was tutor to Bonnie Prince Charlie during his exile and later fought with him in the 1745 rebellion, together with Chevalier Michael Sheridan, his nephew. In the next century General Philip Henry Sheridan was a successful commander in the American Civil War. The Sheridans are most widely known and successful in the literary world- Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1817) is the most famous. He is best remembered for his brilliant comedies of manners such as 'School for Scandal,’ whichs illustrates his capacity to assess people's pretensions and weaknesses, and humourously criticise them. This was talent he also used to good effect in his other career of English politician and orator. His grandfacher, the Reverend Thomas Sheridan, himself an author was also a great friend of Jonathan Swift. His mocter, Frances, and brother, Charles, were also writers, while Thomas, another member of this literary family, was a leading actor of this day. Denis Sheridan (b.1612) worked with Bedell on translating the bible into Irish.
