    Notes 
    • ". . .Thomas Parris of London, who is the oldest ancester known."

      "The name Parris is sometimes differently spelled by different branches of the family. Some write their name Paris, with but one r, while others write it Parish. In the will of John Parris of Barbadoes, the brother of Thomas Parris of London, the family name is spelled Parris, and hence we suppose that to be the true name. We also find in the church records of Salem, mass., the minister, Samuel Parris, wrote his name the same way." [5]
