Surname dictionaries indicate that the origin of the surname is Welsh, derived from the patronymic system where the phrase 'ap Harry', meaning 'son of Harry', became combined to form the one word 'Parry'.

Famous Parry's:

Blanche Parry - lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth I
Caleb Hillier Parry - British physician
Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry - English Composer
Sir William Edward Parry - English Rear Admiral and arctic explorer


Name Variations:  Parry, Parrey, Parrie.
