The spelling of Sherritt is a derevation of Sherratt. I've only seen it spelled that way in Scotland. There is a confusion for the Scherretz of which at some point in time on the east coast of the U.S. adopted the surename Sherrod. Which is believed to be a corruption of Sherratt in the U.S.
I came across many Sherritt surenames in the Gloscow area of Scotland as well as Aberdeen on a resent trip there. The ancesteral area is that of Staffordshire, England. In addition, Sherratt's are akin to all Sherrards. Including Ireland.
Confused yet?? The name goes back to 912 a.d. in staffordshire for a saxon fort built to fend off danish invaders. i believe it was spelled "scirgeat" meaning "bright gate".
Interested in more? e-mail me at email@example.com. I'le share all knowledgewith you. See ya!
p.s. If you take our surenames back far enough in time, we are related.
