LOWERY Family HistoryThis is very much a northern English and Scottish surname, and is a diminutive form of the personal name "Lawrence", which derives from the Latin "Laurentus", itself from "Laurentium", "the city of laurels", in Italy. Laurels were the symbol of victory, and this probably helped account for the popularity of the name and the number of variants and diminutives it generated. The personal name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, in the Latin form "Laurentius", and it was first recorded in Scotland in the person of Lowry Smith in 1467, in the Register of Dunfermline.
