  • Durry was originally used for hand-rolled cigarette. It is thought to have come from the original brand of loose tobacco, "Bull Durham", the first rolled cigarette tobacco initially marketed in 1860 by James Green of Durham Station, North Carolina. Before this tobacco was either chewed or smoked in a pipe.

    For some time now Durry has been commonly used in Australia to refer to any cigarette, not just rolled ones.
