Early Origins of the Scurry family


The surname Scurry was first found in Galway (Irish: Gaillimh) part of the province of Connacht, located on the west coast of the Island, where they held a family seat as one of the Chiefs of the Sodham or Sodhan, a large territory in the barony of Tiaquin, divided into six territories, each of which was ruled by a chief, the overlord being O'Mainnin whose chief residence was the Castle of Clogher. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable.
