<<Mac Lysaght's The Surnames of Ireland says, STRAIN, in Gaelic "O
SRUITHEAIN (sruth,stream) a Donegal family, also called SHRYANE. Strain is
a Co.Down variant. Also (O) Strahan inDonegal. From this information it
would appear that the origin of the name is Irish. >>
I am interested in this posting about the name SHRYANE. I have Shreeane in
my family, sometimes spelt Shriane, Shrehane and Shreehawn, from Co.
Roscommon. When they came to England in the 1840's the name was spelt
Shrehorn and Sehan.
I would be interested in any other information about this family.
