I have traced our Howrey family to a Hans Haury in Switzerland. I have not found a DOB for him but his son, who is also Hans Haury, was born in 1676 in Switzerland. His son Ulrich Haury was born in 1698 in Switzerland, but died in 1724 in Lancaster Co., PA. His son was named Jacob "Howrey" and was born in 1718 in Conestoga, Lancaster Co., PA. My grandfather said that it was not unusual for people to change their names when they arrived to distinquish themselves from other families with the same surname and that it seems likely that is why the change occurred. Might be a connection with your Haury - I do have more information if so and if your interested.
