About the Mowry surname

The surname Mowry was brought to England during the great migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is probably a variant of the Anglo-Norman French personal name Mary, a short form of Amaury. The Mowry family lived in Northumberland, but the name is a reference to the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest, Montbrai, in La Manche, Normandy.

Variations include: Morey,Mowbray, Mowbrey, Moubrey, Emery
