Clan Durie Durie is a Lowland Scottish Family, not a Scottish clan as sometimes reported.

The origin of the surname is often said to be from the French Du Roi', but this is known to be an error. Nor were they Normans, or "travelled to Scotland in 1069 as part of the entourage of Queen Margaret of Scotland". Modern historical research shows that in 1260 or shortly thereafter, a younger son of the Earl of Strathearn was granted the land in Fife already called Durie and took the name, becoming “of Durie” or, in the Anglo-French used in documents of that that time, “de Durie”.
