HARRY Family HistoryThis interesting surname is first recorded in England, but also has later Scottish associations. It derives from the personal name Harry, itself a nickname or dialectal transposition from the old French name "Henri". This name translating as "home-rule", first appears in England in its Latinized form "Henricus" in the Domesday Book of 1086, being introduced at the Norman Invasion of 1066. During the Middle Ages the name, as Henry, became enormously popular in England and was borne by no less than eight kings, a record not equalled until the 20th Century, when Edward V111 had his short reign in 1936.
