The first people to use the name Cawry were a family of Strathclyde- Britons who lived in the Scottish/English Borderlands. The name comes from when someone lived in the parish of Hutton Corrie in the county of Dumfriesshire.

Cawry Early Origins



The surname Cawry was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, 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.

The Great Migration



The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them: Ann Correy settled in Pennsylvania in 1771; followed by Martha in 1772; and Michael in 1868; Alexander, Jane, Margaret, Nicholas, Robert and William Corrie arrived in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in the 18th century.
