Origins of surname

In Medieval England this was somebody who lived by a pear orchard, or owned one.

The name has a completely different derivation in Wales, where ap Henry (son of Henry) morphed into 'Perry'

Early records

The first Jersey baptism on record is that of Susan Jane, daughter of Philip Perry and Marie de Camp, in St Helier in 1835. They had no further children. In 1844 the first of seven children of Henry Perry and Mary Nash was baptised in the same parish.
