Jury Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Middle English, Old French ju(ie)rie ‘Jewish quarter’, often denoting a non-Jew living in the Jewish quarter of a town, rather than a Jew. Most medieval English cities had their Jewish quarters, at least until King Edward I’s attempted expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290. This did not succeed in expelling the Jews, but it did give a license to persecution and so broke up many of the old Jewish quarters.
