Welcome to the website of the High Sheriffs Association of England and Wales. I hope you will find the information we have set out here both informative and interesting.

There is a High Sheriff in every county in England and Wales, and their history and tradition goes back before the Norman Conquest. The Office is the oldest Royal appointment. The modern day High Sheriff has a very different role and function to that of his ancient ancestors, but none the less plays an important role in our 21st century society. I hope our website will give you the information you are looking for, but please do contact us if you need further information.
