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).

My grandfather's name is also John Corry


My father is John Elwood Corry born in Harrisburg Ohio. Born to James and Edith Corry. I was told by my uncle Ronald Corry that my great-great-great-grandfather founded Corry Pennsylvania

Hello I am looking to find more information about my heritage. My father's family name is Corry and they came over to Canada from Ireland in the 1940s. My Grandfather was John Corry born in 1906 and his wife was Ellen Corry born in 1909. I am going to continue my research as well. I would love to connect as I am planning a trip to Ireland in the Spring if travel loosens by then!
