The old family of this name were probably a branch of the Anglo-Norman family of Heriz from Nottinghamshire who came to Scotland with David I. However, there is another theory about the name’s origin. The Count of Vendome, a French nobleman, at one point visited Britain, and his coat of arms bears three hedgehogs, and it has been suggested that the surname Herries may derive from the French word for hedgehog, hérisson.
