Ferris Genealogy & History

Ferris is an English and Irish name, anglicized from the Old Gaelic O'Fearghusa, meaning son of the vigorous or forceful man. Fergus itself was a common name, though not among monarchs, and was found in great numbers in Ulster, in northeast Ireland, along with this surname. Ferris family history enters the books with the record of a man named only Ferris, noted in the Census of County Kerry in 1586. Ferris genealogy includes quite a few renowned people, such as Ferris wheel inventor George Ferris, historical painter Jean Ferris, and award-winning science writer and professor Timothy Ferris.
