? Currie is a placeholder for the father of John Currie, whom current genealogical research has not uncovered.

The Currie name has numerous origins. [1]

Given the proximity of John Currie's birthplace of Galashiels to Midlothian, it seems likely that in John's line the name arose as a habitational name, derived from the village of Currie, Scotland. [2].

The name of this former village has two possible origins, according to Wikipedia:

There is no accepted derivation of the name Currie but it is possibly from the Scottish Gaelic word curagh/curragh, a wet or boggy plain, or from the Brythonic word curi, a dell or hollow.
