Origins and Distribution of the Harris Surname
In many cases the Harris surname appears to be British in origin. It was commonly adopted as a surname in southwestern England, the midlands and Wales. It is a patronymic form of the medieval English personal name Harry (pet form of Henry), meaning "son of Harry." Henry is the English version of the french name Henri, which was introduced to Britain around the time of the Norman conquest.
Irish Harris families probably originate from England, Wales and Scotland and most likely arrived in Ireland during the conquest of Ireland c.1603.
Some other Harris families originated in Germany, France, etc., and adopted the name Harris upon immigration to Britain or America. Jewish refugees are known to have adopted the name upon arrival in Britain, and Ellis Island is renowned for having anglicized non-English names in America c.1900.
The Harris surname (not including variant spellings) ranked as the 15th most common surname in the U.S. as surveyed in the 1990 Census (behind Smith, Johnson, Williams, Jones, Brown, Davis, Miller, Wilson, Moore, Taylor, Anderson, Thomas, Jackson, and White).
In the 2000 Census, the 25 most common surnames in rank are: Smith, Johnson, Williams, Brown, Jones, Miller, Davis, Garcia, Rodriguez, Wilson, Martinez, Anderson, Taylor, Thomas, Hernandez, Moore, Martin, Jackson, Thompson, White, Lopez, Lee, Gonzalez, Harris, and Clark. Harris ranks as the 24th most common surname in the United States.
Harris is the 22nd most common surname in England, Wales and the Isle of Man (behind Smith, Jones, Williams, Taylor, Brown, Davies, Evans, Wilson, Thomas, Johnson, Roberts, Robinson, Thompson, Wright, Walker, White, Edwards, Hughes, Green, Hall, and Lewis).
 Y-DNA test results
Because many Harris surname researchers have exhausted traditional genealogy research methods without identifying their elusive Harris ancestor, this project combines genetics and genealogy in an effort to break through the proverbial "brick wall." Over thirty different families have been identified so far and more are discovered each year.
The Harris Y-DNA results chart shows brief lineages and SNPs or DNA marker values for various kits submitted to the Harris Surname DNA Project. It is divided up into groups of DNA donor kits which appear to be related. Each grouping shows a modal value with the kits in each group matching closely with the modal (or proposed DNA values for a possible common ancestor). Other kits are still unmatched. On the chart, haplogroups in green have been confirmed by SNP testing. Haplogroups in red have been predicted by Family Tree DNA based on unambiguous results in the individual's personal page. SNPs are changes to a single nucleotide in a DNA sequence. SNPs or DNA markers are named with a letter code and a number. DNA markers shown in red are known to mutate faster than other markers.
A Harris DNA mailing list is sponsored by Rootsweb.com. A few of the kit groupings have corresponding Yahoo! Groups for discussion of topics related to that particular Harris DNA group or its reported ancestor(s).
 Sample Harris Families in the Project
 Harris Family of Creeksea and Southminster, Essex, England
 Probable origins
One branch of Harrises (the family residing in Essex, England in the 1500s) claims to derive their surname from the French term “Le Herisse.” Previously, as early as 1000 A.D., this family had been nicknamed Crispin, (Latin) meaning “sticking-up hair.” The French translation of Crispin is “Le Herisse.” A paternal ancestor, Crispin de Bec, son of Guillaume de Bec (918-1000) was bestowed the nickname of “Crispin,” meaning “curly-headed.” Another possible origin of "Crispin" which means "curly" perhaps pertains to the semi-circular fort at Hedeby that curls in a crescent shape, which was one of the places of origins of this family.
This Crispin de Bec’s son, Guy “Le Herisse” de Bailleul, was perhaps the first to assume the French translation of the name. This Crispin family reportedly descends from a brother of Rolf Ganger “Rollo” named Hrollaug Rognvaldsson (aka Hugh Barbatus), both sons of Rognvald “The Wise” Eysteinsson. Among numerous branches, some related families migrated to the British Isles and were known as “de Heriz” and “Heris” during the 11th & 13th centuries in Nottingham and Derby. The family was also anciently known as “Herries” in Wales and Scotland.
The ancient Le Herisse ancestor, Guy de Bailleul, is recorded as holding Harcourt in France. Crispin, Le Herisse, and de Harcourt were used interchangeably at various periods of time. One of Guy’s descendants, Ivo de Harcourt, who is often confused with a different Ivo de Harcourt of another family, began using the name of Heris in Nottingham during the 12th century.
Other branches of this group of Harrises took various surnames during the period of surname formation in the 11th through 13th centuries. From various DNA studies of related patrilineal families tracing back to these same medieval ancestors, it appears that some branches of the following families also trace back to a common ancestor with this Harris family: de Bailleul, Crispin, de Clare, de Montfort, Marshal, Beaumont, Mauvoisine (de Hercy), Rosny, de Colleville, de Ifferley, Stanhope, Douglas, and Harcourt among others.
This group of Harrises which settled in Essex, England, has a corresponding Yahoo! Group for genealogy discussion called Crispin Cousins.
 Relation to Tyner Family of Virginia & North Carolina, U.S.A.
Some descendants of the Tyner family of Virginia now carry the surname of Tyner, however they descend from a John Harris and his mistress, Sarah Tyner, daughter of Nicholas Tyner. DNA testing confirms that this Tyner family descends from the Harris family through the male line. The results also show that the Dempsey Tyner line descends from John Harris and Sarah Tyner. For a biography of Dempsey Tyner see “The Mysteries of Tyner, Tennessee,” Chattanooga Regional Historical Journal 9 (July 2006): 33-44.
 Other Harris DNA projects
 Harris-2 DNA Study
The Harris-2 DNA Study is also being conducted by Family Tree DNA. It is centered around a separate group of Harrises whose members were tested to find out how much Native American blood was in them.
 Harris-Calvert DNA Study
There is also a Harris-Calvert DNA Study being conducted by Family Tree DNA which revolves around a group of Harrises that descend from family members whose name may have originally been CALVERT, as some of the names in early records are shown as “Calvert alias Harris,” “Calvert alias Harrison,” “Harris alias Calvert,” and “Harrison alias Calvert.” This seems to indicate that at least one family member of this group had more than one set of parents. This family group appears to descend from three brothers—Thomas, George, and Burr Calvert, sons of John Calvert (ca. 1692-1731) of early Virginia. Their mother is reported to be Jane Harrison. With DNA testing, and if a strong match can be found with a Harris, Harrison, or Calvert, it is possible that any questions of paternal origin may be solved.
The Calvert Surname has a corresponding Yahoo! Group for genealogy discussion.
