Origin of the Name Perry

The Perry family history was found in the archives. Perry is a locality name meaning 'from the pear tree', from a person who lived beside an orchard of pears. Variants of this name include Pery, Perrie, Perryman, Perriman, Perriment, Perryer, Perrier, Purrier, Pury and Purey. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in these countries. Examples of such are a John Pery, County Oxfordshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Johannes Perysman who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Ireland this family were the Earls of Limerick , originating in Brittany, and became prominent in the reign of Henry VII. The title was granted in 1758. In modern times most bearers of the name are found in Ulster Province having been introduced there from England and Scotland with the Plantation.
The Perry coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Perry descendants.
