Early Origins of the Comerey family
The surname Comerey 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 Comerey family to the New World and Oceana
North America was far from Britain's oppressive monarchy. There, the Scottish found land and freedom, and many even the opportunity to pay back England
in the American War of Independence
. This brave heritage survives today largely in Clan
societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Research into passenger and immigration lists has brought forth evidence of the early members of the Comerey family in North America: 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.
The Comerey Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Ad metam
Motto Translation: To the mark.
