Origin of Surname
Le Noury translated in Guernesiaise (however loosely, means ‘the nourished ones’) which probably relates to the fact that the early tribal name was formed on the fact that they ate well and were a farming group of peoples.
The French word NOURRIER translated into English means "to feed"
