I am also 1/4 Scottish Canadian, which explains my derision of France.
That being said, geneological research has led us to the conclusion
that "Lorrey" is derived from an appellation given to describe sworn
men of the Sun King who remained with Mary, Queen of Scots when she
returned to Scotland after her husband's early death. That we were all
transported in the centuries following her death and our family's
support of Bonnie Prince Charlie, etc is indicative...
