Ray Riegel, an attorney and traveler, has put together a significant work involving the Ferris name. His site: Henri de Ferrières (1036-1088) Descendants to the Era of Jeffrey Ferris (c.1610-1666)
The work contains a tremendous amount of research on the origins of the Ferris name in England.
Like many others, I have spent a great deal of time trying to find Jeffrey’s ancestors. When I was unable to find credible or sufficient evidence about his parents, I decided to approach the problem from the other end and trace the descendants of Henri de Ferrières (1036-1088), the family patriarch identified by Reverend Huntington.
I would encourage everyone interested in any of the Ferris lineages to begin with his work when researching precolonial relatives.
