HUMPHRIES Family History

Recorded as Humphreys, Humphries, Humphreyson, Humpherson, Humphrieson, Humpherston, as well as many others, this is an English and sometimes Scottish surname, of French origins. It is derived from the pre 7th century Germanic elements "hun" meaning a bear cub, and "frid" meaning peace, a strange combination of elements even for the Dark Ages. St. Humfrey the 9th century bishop of Therouanne in France, had a certain following in England amongst the Norman settlers, and this no doubt contributed to the popularity of the name.
