Multiple Origins for the Surname Morrish


English


The English surname Morrish comes from the place name St. Maurice, Normandy where N. de St. Maurice was listed in the Magn. Rotul. of Normandie (1180-1195.) This personal name is in turn derived from the Latin name Mauritius, which comes from maurus, meaning " a moor."

Morrish Early Origins



The surname Morrish was first found in Herefordshire. Early records there show Isabell, John and Margeries Morice in England c. 1272. The same census shows William filius Maurici in Huntingdon, Richard filius Maurycii in Cambridge and Peter filius Maurice in Lincoln county. The surname may also be a nickname for someone who was "swarthy" as shown by the Robert le Mareys reference in 1274.
