Currid

I am doing a little research on my grandmother's family they are Currid I am not finding much about this surname it seems a family crest is no existent on the web and all I can really find out so far is it's a name that seems to to hail from co Sligo

Appears as Kurrid in earlier parish registers.

Have a look at John Grenham's site, he has some details.

And don't get hung up on coats of arms (crests being part of a coat of arms). I have a whole rant about arms which I'm sure I've posted on this forum before.

I just came across a Private Bernard Currid, enlisted 18/07/1919 in Sligo, aged 21/6 months, a farm labourer, born St Johns, Sligo, son of Mrs Mary Currid, Charles Street, Sligo. Entitled to the War Medal and the 1914/15 Star, discharged termination of engagement at Warwick on 18/05/1922, behaviour very good, address on dishcarge Charles Street Sligo.
