Origen: Galés. The Welsh Kerry family name comes from the name of the parish of Kerrey, which is in the county of Montgomery. The surname Kerry belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Compared to other ancient cultures found in the British Isles, the number of Welsh surnames are relatively few, but there are an inordinately large number of spelling variations. First found in Montgomeryshire (Welsh: Sir Drefaldwyn), located in mid-Eastern Wales, one of thirteen historic counties, and anciently the medieval kingdom of Powys Wenwynwyn, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Variantes: Kerry, Kerrie y otros.
