In a recent tweet Ancestry.co.uk asked “What does your last name say about you?”
Naturally I followed the link to “Discover the meaning and history behind your last name” which is Curry.
This link will show you what Ancestry had to say.
X is not for Xavier Curry.
People have been asking me if I would be able to cover the difficult letters eg Q, X, Y and Z in this challenge. Smugly I said I had it all sorted. Well, I was wrong. I had presumed that X would be easy because there are lots of Irish Currys, many of them are Catholic and Xavier is a Catholic name. It seems that Catholic Currys in Australia have not been calling their sons Xavier.
After finding nothing on Trove. I did a Google search and came up with one Xavier Curry (living) so I didn’t pursue him any further. I then tried an Ancestry search limited to Australia. No Xaviers.
The best I can do is a burial record for Jackson Xavier Curry who died in Finley, NSW in 1996.
When I started out on this challenge I aimed to make my posts short and sweet. I have achieved this with X.
