Eric Culham Norrie
It's really odd, my name makes some sense as a variant of Culham Norris, but it also almost makes more sense as the Farsi "Ghulam Noori." Interesting stuff.
Info requested on Mary Norris / Norreys & Denis Shine (Buttevant / Doneraile). Mary Norris married Denis Shine in Buttevant Parish, Cork, Ireland in 1846. The children were Patrick Shine (b.1847), Mary Shine (b.1850), Catherine Shine (b.1855), Elizabeth Shine (b.1858), Denis Shine (b.1863)and Ellen (Nora? / Ellenora?) Shine (b.1867). The children were born in the Ballybeg, Buttevant and Doneraile areas of Cork. Patrick Norris / Norreys was a witness to the birth of a child of Mary Norris / Norreys & Denis Shine in Doneraile, County Cork, Ireland - the child was Denis Shine (b.1863). He may also be associated with the Ballybeg, Buttevant and Mallow areas. Information requested on Patrick Norris / Norreys please. Cousins of this family at this time may have been Nagles and Buckleys. Information requested on all the above please (I have birth records for their children). momail4 (at) yahoo.co.uk
I am Patrick Joseph Norris the 7th and my son is the 8th - I live in Glasgow Scotland but was born in Ireland where my dad Patrick Joseph Norris the 6th lives in Dungarvan co. Waterford. We can trace the previous 5 generations to the cemetry at st. Laurence's church in ballinroad. Norris is a reasonably common name in the county of Waterford with me knowing at least 5 other families of the same name which are not immediately related.
I am Nick Norris. Trying to find how far back my family goes. See my ancestors so any info just email me at email@example.com
Norris from South africa and now in New Zealand.
Hello - I've just been searching today but have visited numerous Norris sites. None seem to note my lineage - perhaps we're a lost link? My father was John Black, my gd James Baxter and ggd John Black. To my knowledge, ggd travelled to America from Glasgow Scotland. He married an Agostino and I believe a Saunders having many children in both America and Glasgow. Gd was a tailor who moved to America with his wife Jane (Jean) nee McTyre around 1918 when my dad John was 5 through Ellis Island to Boston Massachusetts. James and Jane had two biological children - John and Margaret - and one adopted Monica. Story has it that ggd was well over 6 foot tall, perhaps 7 foot. A giant of man for the times and had numerous children from his American wives. I do not know his birth or death dates. I do not know gd's birth but he died 5/1977. gm died 4/1988 I believe, brother James Baxter died 8/1988, dad John Black died 8/1995. any relatives of mine here?

Not much is known about my fathers ancestry.
Have done some extensive family research and have (if accurate) chased our roots back to Rev. Edward Norris III who arrive in Massachusets in 1637 (and his son John 2 years earlier, on the Truelove) and preached in Salem 30 years before the infamous witch trials.. Loosely I have traced our family back in England to approx. 1090 when a Norice was a liason to the king of Norway. It appears that Norris' could have come across with William the Conquerer from France (the Normans) into England in 1060. Whether my family was part of the fun or not, I am still unsure.
