Shaffrey Shout Out

Recently, I received an email inquiring about my Shaffrey line.  It is a rather uncommon Irish surname.  The line that I come form originates in Parish of Moynalty, Meath, Ireland, at least in the early 1800s.  I have found it to be very likely that they originate in that location even in the late 1700s.  I find my relatives in this location and probably in Shancarnan and Dunshaughlin. 

As you've probably noticed, I use the words "very likely" and "probably".  How certain can I be when it comes to this Irish family line.  I "guesstimate" that I am 95% certain.  Those are generally considered pretty good statistics for Irish ancestry, especially when tracing them in the late 1700's and early 1800's.  Source records can be so hard to come by.

I have the following previous posts in my blog as my respository reference material.  I will share them again as a "shout out" for my Shaffrey's.  I continue, as always, to seek the family line.  I am still hopeful that maybe, just maybe, I can get back further in time and make a discovery of some family history.

My Shout Out to My Shaffrey's:

Shaffrey's - Meath - Judith Shaffrey Maxwell - Part 1
Shaffrey's - Meath - Judith Shaffrey Maxwell - Part 2
Shaffrey's - Meath - Judith Shaffrey Maxwell - Part 3

If anyone has an interest in this family line or is a Shaffrey, let me know!
