Evelyn Philip Shirley (22 January 1812 - 19 September 1882), was a politician, antiquary and genealogist. He was a descendant of Robert Shirley, 1st Earl Ferrers. Educated first privately from 1826 at Eton, before matriculating in 1830 from Magdalen College, Oxford, he graduated BA in 1834 and MA in 1837. Shirley sat as Member of Parliament for County Monaghan from 1841 to 1847 and for Warwickshire South from 1853 to 1865. He served as High Sheriff of Monaghan for 1837 and as High Sheriff of Warwickshire for 1867. He describes his book as "an imperfect attempt to bring together a few notes relating to the ancient aristocracy of England. The index focusses only on the Devonshire section.
