Harris Genealogy & History

Harris family history shows many different spellings, including Harries, Harriss, Harrison, Herries (Scottish), and Parry (Welsh), but they all mean "Son of Harry (or Henry)". Records of the name are first found in Derbyshire in land grant records by William the Conqueror for participation in the 1066 Battle of Hastings. Harrises began to emigrate to North America in the 1600s, to Australia and New Zealand in the 1700s and to South Africa in the 1800s. Harris genealogy includes the actor Ed Harris, the Australian musician/comedian Rolf Harris, the English science fiction writer John Wyndham, and the Canadian artist Lawren Harris.
