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 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.
