English: habitational name from Middle English, Anglo-Norman French juerie ‘Jewry, Jewish quarter’ (Old French juierie, jurie), often denoting a non-Jew living in the Jewish quarter of a town, rather than a Jew. Many of the larger English boroughs had a Jewish population, 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. Evidence of their former presence, however, was sometimes preserved in the name Jewry for the quarter where they once lived.
