there's a Norwegian name Tørres, and a son of Tørres would be Tørreson or Tørresson.
Tørres is a Norwegian form of the Old Norse name Torgils which means "Tor (Thor/Þór)", the god of thunder, and "arrow shaft".
I haven't heard about the name Torre, but it sounds more like Tore than like Tørres..., but maybe your ancestors just changed the ø into o?
Hope that helps...?
