Origins Available: English, Spanish


Clarret is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the given name Clarret. This surname is metronymic in origin, and is based on the first name of the mother having derived from the Latin Clara which literally means bright and fair. Metronymic names were not uncommon during the medieval period. There were a large number of widows in some English communities, and as a result the children of these women would be referred to as the widow's child.

Clarret Early Origins



The surname Clarret was first found in Huntingdonshire where John Clarrot was considered to be the first record of the family in ancient England. He was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. Walter Clarte was listed in Normandy, 1180-95. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Clarret or a variant listed above: Joseph Claret who arrived in New Orleans in 1821.
