Welcome to our Shier family site! I've pulled together some of our ancestry. Shier has been also spelled Scheuer, Sheuer, Schyer, and Shire.
The 1st generation: Johann Adam SCHEUER [c1674-1758] was the original German emigrant to settle in Ireland. He was enrolled as John Adam SHEUER aged 35, husbandman, and vinedresser, and sons aged 8 and 5 years and a daughter aged 2 years. This family was in the first party of Palatine refugees to reach London in 1709. [see attached] Go to next page
