Where did the Scottish Carberry family come from? What is the Scottish Carberry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Carberry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Carberry family history?Scottish history reveals Carberry was first used as a surname by the Strathclyde-Briton people. It was a name for someone who lived in the parish of Inveresk, Lothian, which was first recorded in the form Crebarrin, from the words Gaelic craobhm meaning "tree," and barran, meaning "hedge."
It is only in the last few hundred years that rules have developed and the process of spelling according to sound has been abandoned. Scottish names from before that time tend to appear under many different spelling variations. Carberry has been spelled Carberry, Carbarry, Carbery, Carbray, Carbury, Carbrey, Carbry, Carby, Crebarin and many more.
First found in Midlothian, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
