CREED Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is locational from a place so called in Cornwall, and means "(the church of) St. Creda or Crida", named after a 7th Century female saint who is believed to have come from Ireland. The personal name is derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "creoda", belief, faith. The placename was first recorded as "Sancte Cride" in the Episcopal Registers of 1275. Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace.

I'm Mary Hegarty. My gg grandmother Mary Creed married a man named Owen Mitchell. I'm not sure of the dates but should be around late 1700s, early 1800s.

Chris Creed

Hi, this is Chris Creed from the United States. I've started tracking my family through Ancestry and have l learned my Creed lineage lived in Tipperary and belonged to the Thurles Parish. Once the pandemic is over I'd like to plan a trip to Tipperary. From the pictures it looks beautiful. Would love to connect from Creed family if possible.
