We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:

 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

Hi there

My great grandmother was a Spierin, and among her relations the name was frequently spelled as Sperin (as well as a plethora of other variants, from Spering to Speiran to Spearing). My pedigree is below (my own line and all the males in related lines who survived to adulthood). She was not on my maternal DNA line but I have traced all the living Spierins in Dublin and they all descend from my g-g-g grandfather Patrick Spierin, who probably came from Limerick. The Limerick Spierins in turn were probably related to the Speringe’s of London (1633 Visitation) and they are reputed to have come from Germany. I am in contact with distant cousins who are part of the direct paternal line (and I will ask them if they would be interested in participating). Anyway, please feel free to check out Maurice Gleeson's family tree at (but remember to click on the Dublin Spierin’s tree in the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the tree view).

Ciao, Maurice (Gleeson junior)
