Storry History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Storry family


The surname Storry was first found in Northumberland where they were said to be descended from an ancient line of Viking settlers of knightly degree and with episcopal rank. Roughly translated from the Viking records the name means "dweller by large and rough water". They moved north into Renfrewshire, Scotland and acquired considerable estates. In Scotland, William Storie was a charter witness in Dundee in 1281. Walter Stori was canon of Aberdeen in 1320 and Adam Story was one of 'burgenses rure manentes in Aberdeen, 1317.

A few years later, in England, the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 revealed Thomas Storre; Johannes Storre; and Roger Storre as all holding lands there at that time. "Storey is still among the most familiar of Yorkshire names, but it has become, of necessity, mixed with Storer, which also is well established in that county." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
