CURRIE Family History
This unusual and interesting Anglo-Scottish surname has three possible origins. The first of these is English and locational from any of the places in Somerset such as Curry Mallet or Curry Revel so called from the river "Curry", on which they stand. The etymology of the river name is obscure, but may derive from the pre 7th century word "cweorn" meaning a mill. The other origins are both Scottish, and are also locational. The first is from the place called Currie in the former County of Midlothian, recorded in this form in 1230.
