Origin of Surname

The surname Carré is derived from the French work carré meaning square. In France this is believed to be derived from someone "square-shouldered", although it could also refer to someone who was a mason or carpenter by profession.

It can be found in Guernsey as early as 1309, when Philip Carrée was recorded as a landowner.
