I have in my possesion a copy of a family crest with the following
note:-

SHARROCK of Ribbelsdale

Extract from an old manuscript - the SHARROCKS or SHORROCKES of
Ribbelsdale in County Lancs first of wh name was Rafe SHORROCK of
Shorrockhayes wch in the Barons War was advanced to a Captain and
therein lost his life.

Does anyone know where either Ribbelsdale or Shorrockhayes were/are as
i have been unable to find them.
It may be that Ribbelsdale is now Ribblesdale but any other info would
be welcome.
Unfortunatley there is no date on the note with the crest.

Thanks
Linda
