Berry Family Crest

Berry Family CrestThe English and Irish surname Berry is an habitational name from any of several places named with Old English byrig, dative case of burh ‘fortified manor house’, ‘stronghold’, such as Berry in Devon or Bury in Cambridgeshire, Greater Manchester, Suffolk, and West Sussex. When found in Ireland the name is exclusive to counties Mayo and Galway and is an anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Béara or Ó Beargha, a byname meaning ‘plunderer.’ The first recorded spelling of the family name is believed to be that of Gilbert de la Beri, which was dated 1202, in the Pipe Rolls of Cornwall.
