Saint-Patrice-de-Sherrington, Québec, Canada - Église de Saint-Patrice 234, rue Saint-Patrice, Sherrington, QUÉBEC Established 1848

Sherrington, Old Township of
Prior to 1809, the area north of Hemmingford Township and west of the Seigniory of DeLéry was designated "Tract of Land under consideration for endowing a University". including the southernmost area that was granted to François Baby. The Belden Atlas 1881 called it Sherrington Seigniory but I have not seen any evidence of such a name in previous maps and related documents. It is shown on an 1831 map as sub-divided into concessions. The same map shows the Seigniories of St-Normand and St-James as McCallum's Property (Jas. McCallum owned those seigniories), so it is possible that the Sherrington area was granted to Mr. Baby in a similar manner. One document suggests that the Township included the area of the late granted Seigniories of St-James, St-George, St-Normand and Thwaite but this is debatable. It later became the Paroisse-de-St-Patrice-de-Sherrington.

Saint-Patrice-de-Sherrington was once populated by a number of Irish people,
of whom just over 200 lived in the county of Napierville in 1861, which may explain the choice of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (around 389 – around 461) as protector of the nascent community.
