Name Derivations

By Dr Bruce Durie

If you are interested in the geographical origin of the Durie name and the current geographical spread, it is well worth looking at the following website This shows the origin and geographical spread of names both in Great Britain and worldwide. To find out more about the Durie name, I suggest that you look first at the GBnames section of the website which picks up work originating in University College London showing the geographical spread of names in Great Britain (but not in Northern Ireland or Ireland which is a pity because there certainly were and probably still are Duries in Northern Ireland at least).
