My name, (if not shown), is Brian Curry. My family comes from the city of Durham located in the county of Durham, England. Durham is a coastal town located in the north of England along the eastern coast. I have genealogical records of this. It was my 3rd great grandfather Thomas Curry who came here.
I hope this helps someone who is looking for ancestors. There are still Curry's who live in Durham.
Curry is the anglecized form of McMurrich as in the very famous Muiredach McMurrich. McMurrich is the galecized form of Korach or Korah as in the Sons of Korah we are all Levites. You know why Curry men die premature deaths from heart attacks? Because God cursed the male descendants of Samuels two sons because they were prideful, arrogant, and rebellious. It is a family curse of ours. Korah was punished for contending with Moses. Elijah the prophet actually had two female bears kill 42 children for teasing him about being bald. Most of the Old Testament Prophets and New Testament apostles were from our family. Our family is special and superior to others. There are 7 places in the Old Testament where God lists out our family geneology and he keeps making a special mention of the fact that there is something unusual about our physical strength and our mental capabilites. Even King David in Psalm 78 says the "great strength" of Israel and it's chiefest of men were lost.
Curry is an irish name,mainly around south Tipperary,and County Clare
I am researching the Curry family from Suffolk, England.
They keep telling me that my surname has Irish origins but I don't feel Irish
The Curry surname was changed from the Gaelic O Comhraidhe ( When the Irish & Scottish Gadhlaig languages were made illegal in the mid 1800's) and is very uncommon, except for my hometown in Ireland, where there are several families with that name. The arms I prefer to go with for the Gaelic septs is the red shield with the saltire ( an x ) with the rose at the top end.
Thanks for the Info! I am currently embarking on a genealogy mission. My grandmother's surname was "Curry". Although her surname changed when she married my grandfather, all the women in our family take enormous pride in the Curry surname. So much so that now the men in our family have taken an interest as well. So far, it appears our Curry ancestors come from Northern Ireland. That is somewhat tentative, still confirming. THANKS AGAIN, Jake, for the info!

Can you update a german origin for curry and cornwell
My name is James Curry, my passport is Sheamus O Comhraidhe, so as far as I'm concerned you are correct, but there was another sept in the North of Ireland and the name is common in some parts. The Scotish Currie maybe came from an old scotish clan name McVurrach, which were wiped out by the English and their names were wiped from history, cant remember where that story came from.
That scottish clan of McVurrach's was Muiredach McMurrich's family from Ireland he is one of my ancestors. The reason that they were wiped out is because the Brittish Israelites wished to rewrite history and they couldn't do that if there were any bards left to tell it. The McMurrich's is the galecized form of Korach or Korah as in the Sons of Korah we are all Levites. Korah our ancestor who disputed with Moses was at the time not only the richest israelite but Moses said to him "isn't it enough that out of all of the tribes of Israel God has chosen your family to bring a little closer to himself? We were the only ones that God allowed to touch or transport the Ark of the Covenant and sacred vessels from the Holy of Hollies. Most of the Old Testament Prophets and New Testament Apostles were from our family. If you read a book called the Invention of Scotland by Hugh Trevor-Roper. It was online and if you scrolled down to about 48 you could pick up the part where it started alluding to the fact that we were Levites who once had in our possession a book, that was the compilation of all of the oral histories of the Israelites dating back to the time of Adam and Eve.
