It occurs to me that vary[varrie] might be an anglicised spelling of Mhairi.

Mhairi is the vocative form of Mairi (Gaelic for Mary), used when speaking to Mairi.

I've not seen it as a surname, but Mhairi is common enough in the Borders as a first name (sometimes pronounced Varrie, sometimes Marrie).

I hope that helps, or at least is interesting.
