Curry Family History
The Curry ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'at the corrie', Curry is a locational name from the lands of Corrie now included in the Parish of Hutton-Currie, Dumfriesshire. Variants include Corry, Corrie, Cory, Currie and Currey. This name is of Scottish descent spreading to Ireland, England and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Hugh de Corrie who witnessed a charter of a fishery in Torduf, in the year 1194, and a Radulph de Corry who witnessed a charter by Henry de Grahame in the year 1200. In Ireland this name is often of immigrant origin, especially in Ulster Province, but it is also derived from the Gaelic O'Comhraidhe septs of Thomond and Moygoish.The Curry family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Curry descendants.
