Perry Genealogy & History

Perry is an English and Welsh surname, with a few different origins. First, there is the Old English pirige, meaning a pear tree, and likely referring to someone living near a pear orchard, or the owner of that orchard. It might also be Welsh, a patronymic form of the name Herry, a diminutive of Henry, and in Welsh ap Herry, which soon shortened to Perry. Perry family history beings with Henry de Peri, noted in 1176 on the Staffordshire Pipe Rolls.
