Origins Available: English, Irish


The surname Beary is derived from the Norman surname de Bury, and is from either the Chateau de Bury in Normandy, or several place names in England like Bury St. Edmund's, where "bury" is a form of "burrough." The variant Berry can be found in Counties Antrim and Mayo. The name Berry is also found in County Offaly, but there it belongs to the O Beara sept and is a form of Beary.

Beary Early Origins



The surname Beary was first found in County Wicklow (Irish: Cill Mhantáin), known as the “last county,” created only in 1606, located on the East coast of Ireland, today part of the Greater Dublin Area, where Simon de Bury was listed in 1234. The family came to Ireland with the Prestons, a family of Norman descent. The name de Bury was recorded in connection with Drogheda in County Louth in the 14th century.
