CORRY Family History

This interesting name is Scottish in origin, and is a locational surname from anyone of the places in Arran, Dumfriess and other areas named "Corried". The name derives from the Gaelic word "coire", meaning "cauldron", and is used here in the transferred sense of a circular hanging valley on a mountain. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man made features in the landscape provided easily recognizable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.There are two forms of the modern surname, "corry" and "corrie", and both are recorded between the 12th Century and 13th Century, Radulph de Corry witnessed a charter by Henry de Grahame in circa 1200 (Mortan).
