LAWRIE Family HistoryThis famous "Border" surname recorded as Lowrie, Lowrey, Laurie, Lawrie, Larrie, and others, is equally prominent in both England and Scotland, and also in the Irish province of Ulster. It derives either from the Gaelic "Labhraidh" meaning "the spokesman" and is therefore a descriptive semi-nickname, or from the Latin (Roman) "Laurentius" the later Lawrence, meaning "victory", of which it is a diminutive or patronymic variant. St. Laurentius was martyred in Rome in 258 a.d., however, the early church at Edzell, Forfarshire, was dedicated to his name.
