Kerr History

The vikings termed marsh dwellers “kjrr”. When their descendants arrived in Britain from Normandy with William the Conqueror the term had become a name with the forms Ker and Kerr, also Carr and Carre.
From Arran on the Celtic West Coast comes a claim that the name is derived from the Gaelic for “strength”.
