Harrison Genealogy & History

Harrison, a distinguished name with forty coats of arms, is a patronymic English name meaning Harry's son. Harry is one pet form of Henry, from Old French "Henri" and Old German "Haimric", derived from "haim", meaning home, and "ric", meaning power; other pet forms include Hal, Hankin, Hann, and Herry. Eight English kings have been named Henry, resulting in the name's continued popularity. The Harrison family seat (feudal manor) was in Lancashire, and in Harrison family history the motto "vincit qui patitur" means "he conquers who endures". The first Harrison emigrant was to Jamestown in 1607, and the illustrious American Harrison genealogy includes two presidents.
