CORR Family History

This interesting name, also found as (O)Corry, (Mac)Corry, (O)Corr and Curry, is of Irish origin and is the Anglicization of the Gaelic 'O'Corra', which translates as the descendant of 'Corra' (the 'O' denoting son of), a personal name from 'corr', a spear, or pointed object. Corr is the more modern form, and is much more numerous in Ulster than elsewhere, and many of the Corrs of Tyrone and Derry are descended from Gilla Corr (see below), whose son is perpetuated in the townland of Ballykilcurr, near Maghera. People of the name Cor and Corre were established in Counties Tipperary and Kilkenny as early as 1270, but it is thought that this is an unrelated Norman name...
