It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Corrye. It was a name for someone who lived in the parish of Hutton Corrie in the county of Dumfriesshire.

Corrye Early Origins



The surname Corrye was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn 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 Great Migration



The number of Strathclyde Clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. 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.
