SHALLOW Family History

This surname is Irish and was originally a descriptive nickname for a land owner. Recorded in the spellings of O' Shelley and Shelley in Munster and as Shally in Connacht, with the much rarer forms of Shaloe, Shalloe, Shallow, and Shalloo, being found originally in Counties Clare and Tipperary, although these counties are far apart. However spelt the name derives from the Ancient Gaelic O' Sealbhaigh, meaning "the descendant of the land owner" or similar, one who held possessions. In Ireland there is confusion because many of the name holders spelt Shelley do have English ancestry, English Shelley's holding lands in Ireland since at least the 16th century...
