This project has been started to try and sort out "who's who" in the Sherwood family here in Australia. By entering all the Sherwoods, I hope to find links between the different branches of the family which came from Monasterevin (also spelt Monastereven) in County Kildare (Leinster) Ireland.

While I am commencing in NSW, there is also a branch in Queensland, at least, and I also believe some went to the USA. Of course, there is still a large contingent back in Monasterevin, too.

Please feel free to contribute if you are an interested relative or descendant - the more the merrier!
