17th century Norrises in Ireland seem to be somewhat rare. From among
"The Early Scottish Settlers in Ulster" (Ulster Historical Foundation -
17th Century Records) a John Norris of County Antrim is found residing
on Sir Foulke Conway's Estate, and further identified as an 'original
settler of Lisburn.'
>From the 1659 census of Ireland is found the surname 'Norris' at Cork,
Carlow (Cork, County Carlow?); and 'Norris' also in the 1660-61 Poll
>From the 1659 census of Ireland is found the surname 'Norrice' at
Monaghan, County, Down.
>From the 1659 census of Ireland and the 1660-61 Poll Money Ordinance is
found the surname 'Norse' (location not identified).

Linda, thanks for all the great info on your Norrises.
Mine start with Nicholas, b. about 1640 believed in Ireland. All the
Norris of his line were in the Exeter, NH area until my ggggfather moved
to Cadiz, Harrison, OH. He, Joseph, died in Kansas.
However I do have better information on my CUMMINGS line, from
"Billingscake", Down, Ireland. The town name was recorded by a relative
in the mid 1800's, she wrote up a Cummings history. I think the name
might be some varriation of Bally-----, perhaps Ballynaskeagh,
Ballyalicock, Ballycuttle, etc. I suppose she never saw it written down.
I wish I could hear someone say these names with an Northern Irish
So I know a lot about the Norris's except where they come from, would
surely like to find out but they came very early on. Here's hoping some
others have some Norris's to talk about.
