Another name for Hugh was Hugh De Corrie.
1124 - 1153 - Hugh (and his brother Philip) were employed as Knights in the service of King David I 'The Saint' of Scotland, during this period he married the daughter of a Briton noble and settled in Dumfriesshire, Scotland; in the lands of CORRIE granted to him by King David I. Because of the General Council held in Forfar in 1061 during the reign of King Malcolm III 'Canmore' - at which the King had directed the nobility of Scotland "after the manner of other nations" to adopt surnames from their territorial possessions; Hugh took the surname 'CORRIE' (from his lands) as his official surname.
