Early Origins of the Comerbry family
The surname Comerbry was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland in the parish of Comrie. " The name is derived from a Gaelic term signifying 'Confluence,' used in this instance in reference to the junction of the rivers Earn, Ruchill, and Lednock near the site of the church of Comrie. Several traces of camps and fortifications, some of which have been recently obliterated by the operations of husbandry, connect it with the military enterprises of the ancient Romans. "

Migration of the Comerbry family
The New World was far from the oppressive regime of the old country. It was a place where there was more land than people and political and religious freedom were far easier to come by. Many Scots even got the chance to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. In recent years, interest in this heritage has been generated by Clan societies and regular highland games in North America. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists has revealed many people bearing the Comerbry name: Thomas Comry who arrived in Philadelphia in 1841; Alexander Comery arrived in New York State in 1774; M. Commerey landed in New Orleans in 1822.
