The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Corray. The Corray family lived in the parish of Hutton Corrie in the county of Dumfriesshire.

Early Origins of the Corray family


The surname Corray was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhùn 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.

Migration of the Corray family to the New World and Oceana


Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. Others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. 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.
