The Harris Families of Early Nova Scotia and New Brunswick


NOTE November 2018 - I haven't updated these pages in quite awhile. I hope to get back to it again, but it's still a useful resource, I think.

Four HARRIS families were among the New England "planters" arriving in Nova Scotia in the late 1700s. Other Harrises came in the 1800s. There has been quite a bit of interest in the surname in Maritime Canada, which prompted me to put together preliminary reports on these groups, compiled from information that I had on hand from my own researches. Perhaps they will help answer some of your questions, or will generate some more information with which I can add to or correct the following pages.

Be warned that almost none of what follows results from more than superficial research on my part. This is a surname that just keeps getting in my way as I research other families in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Everything I've used has some "respectability" to it - I haven't put in anything that I found solely in Ancestral File, IGI, Family Tree Maker gedcoms, or similar sources of uneven reliability - but be sure you don't take any of it as gospel until you check it out for yourselves. Think of it as a study aid, offered just so everybody doesn't have to keep plowing the same old basic ground.

I have individual records of other Harrises that I couldn't positively place within any of these family groups. If you are looking for somebody who doesn't show up on my lists, check the Harris Annotated Bibliography. Also, please contact me if you can add to, clarify, or correct anything in any of the families.

HARRIS NAME INDEX

There are two indices on this page, compiled to help find people on the various HARRIS pages linked above. The first index is to HARRIS first names; the second is an index to surnames other than Harris found on the pages. The names are coded by webpage, and by the name on that webpage.

K=Kings County; the citation "KU" refers to people at the bottom of the page who probably go with this group, but haven't so far been linked.

A=Annapolis/Digby, further divided as AA (Arthur's Line), AB (Massachusetts John's Line), AC (John of British Army), AD (Myndert's Line), AE (Francis of Sandy Cove), and AUnl (persons unlinked to the above groups).

Y=Yarmouth County; "YS" on the same page refers to Shelburne County names.

N=New Brunswick, further divided as NA, NB, NC, ND, NE, NF, NG, and NU [e.g., ND1 would be the first person in Group D (William Harris Line - Wales) on the New Brunswick page. The "NU" citation refers to persons at the end of the page, who have not yet been linked to someone in the identified groups.
