    Name Meaning

    English (mainly Devon and Somerset): habitational name from Tarr in Hawkridge, or Tarr in Lydeard Saint Lawrence (both in Somerset). The placenames may derive from Old English torr ‘rock, rocky peak’, though this cannot be certain as early forms of the placenames have not been found.English: metonymic occupational name from Middle English tar(re) ‘tar’ (Old English teoru), for someone who worked with tar, such as a person who tarred ships to keep them watertight.Possibly also an altered form of German Tharr, unexplained.
