CURRIER Family HistoryThis rare and interesting name is of Norman French origin, introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. The surname is an occupational name for a leather-dresser, derived from the Old French term "conreeur", currier, in Middle English and medieval French "corier", ultimately derived from the Latin "coriarius", a derivative of "corium", leather. A leather-dresser was someone who dressed and coloured leather after it had been tanned. The development of the surname includes: Henry le Coureer (1281, London), William le Coureour (1314, Devon), William Curreyour (1375, Essex), Andrew Curier (1400, Yorkshire) and Joyce Corryer (1578, Herefordshire).
