severe style of late 18c. English furniture, 1883, from name of cabinetmaker Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806). The family name is from a place in Durham, late Old English Scurufatun (c.1040), probably “farmstead of a man called Skurfa” (an old Scandinavian personal name). The hotel chain dates from 1937 and has no obvious direct connection.
