Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Corrie family history?The chronicles of the Corrie family show that the name was first used in the Scottish/English Borderlands by the Strathclyde- Britons. It was a name for a person who lived in the parish of Hutton Corrie in the county of Dumfriesshire.
The origin of rules governing the spelling of names and even words is a very recent innovation. Before that, words and names were spelled according to sound, and, therefore, often appeared under several different spelling variations in a single document. Corrie has been spelled Corrie, Corry, Corey, Correy, Corrye, Corie, Cory, Cawrie, Cawrey and many more.
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.

The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them:
Corrie Settlers in United States in the 19th Century
Corrie Settlers in Canada in the 18th Century
Corrie Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
Corrie Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century
