The name Heries arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Heries comes from the medieval given name Harry.

Early Origins of the Heries family

Heries Spelling Variations


Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Harries, Harryes and others.

Migration of the Heries family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Heries family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Heries or a variant listed above: Mary Harries who settled in St. Christopher in 1634; Frederick Harries arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1848.
