Suspect a connection here. Verbal family history is that Shier family was on a ship to Western Ireland carrying mostly Huguenots from near Alsace-Lorraine in SW Germany getting away from Louis XIV's persecutions in the late 17th century. My dad has old clipping from newspaper about the journey somewhere. Will look for. Do you know was this 'Hans Adams Shier' a Huguenot trying to get some peace? Or do we know why he went to Ireland?
