Shank Family History


The names Shank and Shanks in Ireland are of immigrant origin having been brought into the Province of Ulster by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. It is in Ulster that the majority of descendants bearing these names can still today be found.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
