Overview
Excerpt from The Shields Family Particularly the Oldest and Most Numerous Branch of the Family in America: An Account of the Ancestors and Descendants of the Ten Brothers of Sevier County, Tennessee of Sevier County

Pre-christian Ireland was divided into five kingdoms, the southernmost of which was Munster; the clan of o'brien, whose capitol was at Cashel, was the royal family. In the third or fourth century, so the story is told, a younger son of the o'brien who was then king of Munster, upon attaining his majority, took a portion of his patrimony and traveled over the continent of Europe for some twenty years. On his return he was dubbed a knight and invested with the title Siadhal, or Shields, which is the Irish form of the name during the Middle Ages. The name refers to the culture and gracious manners the young man had acquired during his trav els. In Latin the name becomes Sedulius.
