Harris Ancestry in England

The Harris ancestry in England as presented here is based on that proposed in May 2001 by J. Phillip Harris of Richmond, VA and shared through Harris Hunters, and the wonderfully documented Harris of Essex, England research of Noël Robertson. Additional details have been added from other internet files, such as the extensive HARRIS family at RootsWeb WorldConnect ( database jmljr ) presented by James Macon Lawrence, Jr. Errors of selection, compilation and incorporation of information from various sources are entirely the responsibility of this compiler, and not of those who have shared the information.

The Harris Family in America

While it is believed that the lineage presented here is essentially correct, substantive evidence is still required to firmly establish the line - especially the link between the two Roberts and between the two Richards. Any genealogy presentation should be carefully and critically reviewed. All information is subject to verification.

It is to be noted that there are many details and persons omitted from this presentation which further connect the various families and locations that are included. For example, William Harris IV's great half uncle's wife, Mary GEDGE was also both step grandmother and great aunt of Elizabeth BUTLER, wife of William CLAIBORNE. Mary's father, James GEDGE, was Surveyor General in Essex and William CALIBORNE was Surveyor General in Virginia. Such kinships, and common occupations and locations, are not unexpected and lend support to the structure of the HARRIS family.

William and Ellen (Burrows) Harris

William HARRIS IV - b. 1596, Willingale Doe, Essex, England; d. about 1656, Jamestown, VA. Son of William HARRIS III and Joan HARDINGS. Immigrated aboard the 'George' to Virginia, arriving in Oct. 1621, as a surveyor with William CLAIBORNE. A land patent recorded Jun. 3, 1624 to William CLAIBORNE was for transportation of William HARRIS, John PHIPPS and William MORRIS, the latter two arriving aborad the 'Tyger' in 1621. William CLAIBORNE was Surveyor General, with the other three working with him. William HARRIS appears in the 1623 muster of Elizabeth City, and was then acting as overseer for the plantation of William CLAIBORNE at Kecoughtan. William HARRIS settled at Jamestown about 1630. Married about 1624.

Ellen BURROWS - b. 1599, London, England. Her aunt Anne BURROWS married at Elizabeth City, VA to John LAYDON, who arrived at Jamestown in 1607. Ellen's father was born in London in 1581, being age 44 on the muster of 1625. Anthony BURROWS had a brother James and an only son James. Daughter of Anthony BURROWS.

Children of William and Ellen Harris

Richard Harris of Granville Co., NC

NOTE: No positive documentation has been located that shows Richard HARRIS of Granville Co., NC as the son of Robert HARRIS of New Kent Co., VA, although circumstantial evidence (such as given name usage) does support that conclusion. Documentary evidence of the parents and grandparents of Richard HARRIS, husband of Priscilla and father of Mary (HARRIS) PARKER is desired.

ALSO: Some compilers show the Richard HARRIS who married Margaret KIMBROUGH and the Richard HARRIS who married Priscilla as the same person. Several difficulties arise with this conclusion. Deeds and wills indicate that Richard and Margaret were married by 1739, and possibly by 1735, and that Richard and Priscilla were married by 1755, and probably by 1749 (see the 1749 will of Frederick HOLMES) - but a 1751 deed indicates that Richard and Margaret were still husband and wife. The 1785 will of Richard Harris names the eight (or nine) children of Richard and Priscilla, but not one of the sons of Richard and Margaret. If the widower Richard Harris married Priscilla as late as 1749, he would have been age 40 and she at least 15 years younger (assuming she was 45 or less when daughter Mary was born about 1770). Richard Harris, husband of Margaret, was likely born in 1709, probably before 1714 and certainly before 1718, and would therefore have been probably over age 56 (and likely over age 60) when daughter Mary was born about 1770.

The Granville County Tax Lists provide evidence that there was one Richard HARRIS family in the county in 1750, two in 1755, three in 1767, and two in 1769:

1750 - Richd Harris Const. negroe Bob 2

1755 - Richard Harris & Son Claiborne & Negroe Bob 2-1-3
1755 - Richard Harris, Abraham Cook, Wm Cook & Negroe Jenny 3-1-4

1767 - Richard Harris son George negro Bobb
1767 - Richard Harris negroes Abram and Jenney
1767 - Richard Harris

1769 - Richard Harris 2-1
1769 - Richard Harris 1-2

Richard and Priscilla (Holmes) Harris

Richard HARRIS - d. 1786-May 1787, Granville Co., NC. Son of Richard HARRIS and Margaret KIMBROUGH. He (or possibly his father) was the Richard HARRIS who was Sgt. in the company of Capt. John SALLI, 1754, Granville, Co., NC. A 2-great granddaughter [Sarah F. (McGILL) DEAN, daughter of Dr. James W. McGILL, granddaughter of Sarah (PARKER) NEELY McGILL, and great granddaughter of Mary (HARRIS) PARKER] relates that he was the Richard HARRIS of Tar River who signed the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence on May 20, 1775. Richard HARRIS, Jr. and Jonathan PARKER (father-in-law of Richard's daughter Mary) took an oath to defend NC against George III in Tar River District, Granville Co., NC on May 22, 1778 (recorded May 30, 1778) [State Records of North Carolina, Vol. 22, p. 169]. Various land records include the names of Richard and Robert HARRIS, probably brothers, and Richard HARRIS, Jr. A published abstract of the 1785 Will of Richard HARRIS follows [see also will transcription from a photocopy]:

Mar. 30, 1785 - proved May Court 1787 - Richard HARRIS wills to his daughter Jemima FORD, Molly BEARDON, and Lucy PARKER each one negro; to daughter Mary HARRIS, a negro, a feather bed and furniture; to my son Richard HARRIS, a negro; to son Charles HARRIS, all my land on east side of Cattail creek; to son Samuel HARRIS, all land on west side of Owen creek and a negro; to son Tyre HARRIS, all land I had of GRIGS on east side of Owen creek (my wife's life interest excepted), and a negro; the land I bought of John CORDOR to be sold to pay my debts; to my wife PRISCILLA, the use of my plantation, tools, household goods, stock, and 5 negroes and, at her death, divided to all my children. Exrs: Benjamin BEARDON, Samuel HARRIS, my son, and my wife PRISCILLA. Wts: John BADGET, Peter BADGET, Jonathan BADGET.

By 1749, Richard was married to Priscilla.

Priscilla HOLMES - An abstract of a 1749 Granville Co., NC will gives her brother. In the Jan. 20, 1749 will of Frederick HOLMES (or HOMES), he names his wife Mary, and children John and Priscilla. Since Frederick names co-executors as his father-in-law Jonathan WHITE and brother-in-law Richard HARRIS, Priscilla may have been daughter of Jonathan WHITE rather than sister of Frederick HOLMES. The HOLMES may be related to the HOLMES family of Duplin co., NC. Priscilla is named as wife of Richard HARRIS in his will, and in deeds dated Dec. 8, 1752 and Jun. 4, 1755, Granville Co., NC. She was living in NC in Nov. 1808, according to letter written by her son Charles. Those children listed in their father's will are listed in the order given in the will.
