Where did the Spanish Berrios family come from? What is the Spanish Berrios family crest and coat of arms? When did the Berrios family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Berrios family history?

Noble surnames, such as Berrios, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Berrios, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful country of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and, during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place names because Spain was conquered and ruled by the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries. The Berrios family originally lived beside a gate or fence. The surname Berrios originally derived from the Spanish word Barrera which referred to a barrier.
