PG 282: Harris Family.
George Harris, the first of this family in Southampton, is first mentioned in the list of 1657 with the residents of North Sea. In April, 1635, George Harris, aged 17, takes passage in the Falcon of London for the Barbadoes. As communication between New England and these islands was frequent in those days, this emigrant might have been the one who subsequently is found in Southampton.
Dec. 6, 1683, 1 George1 wills to ch. 2 George2, 3 Henry2, 4 Mary2, 5 Elizabeth2 and 6 Jane2. One of these daughters was recorded as having been born Apr. 6, 1670, but is not named on the record. The inventory of his estate amounted to £139 18s. Od.

PG282: 2 George2, I conjecture, was born about 1660 and prob. d. in 1753, as his will was proved in that year and dated Sept. 17, 1748. In the census of 1698 the names of George Harris and George Harris, Jr., and Sarah and Eunice are found with the residents of North Sea. His will mentions as his ch. only Eunice and Henry, and we infer, therefore, that George, his son, died young without issue. We, therefore, conclude that 2 George'- had w. Sarah and ch. 7 George3, 8 Eunice3 and 9 Henry3.

PG282: 9 Henry3, not in list of 1698 aud born perhaps in 1699, is known to have the following named ch. from his will, dated in 1769 and recorded in Dec. 1781:
9 Henry3 had w. Lydia (as by will) and ch. 10 George4, 11 Henry4, 12 Daniel4, 13 John4 b. 1727, 14 Benjamin4 , 15 Lydia4, 16 Sarah4 and 17 Mary4. (Order of birth not known.)

PG282: 11 Henry4 had ch. 18 Henry5 b. 1764, 19 a daughter, who m. Judge W. H. Jessup, of Montrose, Penn., aud 20 Elias5.
