The Norris Family" by Harry Alexander Davis is an amazing work in Genealogy, 1500 pages in four volumes. Only three copies were produced, and one is located in the Rare Books Section of the Library of Congress. Another is to be in the Kansas DAR Library at dodge city, Ks.

These books and transcript were based and the Davis transcript:

  • Kentucky Descendants of Thomas Norris of Maryland 1630 - 1953 and Allied Families (1916) Edwards Brothers Inc. Ann Arbor, Mich. Gertrude Cleghorn Josserand (Mrs. Guy D.)
  • Pennsylvania Descendants of Thomas Norris of Maryland 1630 - 1959 and allied Families (1959) Edwards Brothers Inc. Ann Arbor, Mi.
  • Norris Family Aquilla and Priscilla Norris Descendants of Thomas Norris and Ann Hynson, ( 25 Oct 1997, update 27 Feb. 1999) manuscript, Herbert S. Norris

I first databased in the Davis transcript from a microfilm copy that was lent to me by a fellow researcher herbert Norris in Washington state after finding out that the Norris line I am working on for friends have several lines of descent from Thomas Norris of Maryland - after getting it transcribed into PAF I then got the books marked with a + on loan from either NGS or NEHGS this was all done back in 1997-1999 as I have come across information during researching i have added it into the database. herbert then prepared me a copy of his research and I added it in also -

The following bore little or no documentation for the families listed within:

  • The Norris Family of Maryland (1916) William Clemens, Publisher New York, New York Thomas Miller Myers
  • The Norris Family of Maryland & Virginia; Genealogy of Thomas Norris 1361 - 1930 4 vol. 1941 Washington D.C. Transcript Harry Alexander Davis
  • Kentucky Descendants of Thomas Norris of Maryland 1630 - 1953 and Allied Families (1916) Edwards Brothers Inc. Ann Arbor, Mich. Gertrude Cleghorn Josserand (Mrs. Guy D.)
  • Pennsylvania Descendants of Thomas Norris of Maryland 1630 - 1959 and allied Families (1959) Edwards Brothers Inc. Ann Arbor, Mi.

The scope of the database it to - correct, add documentation - and continue to add descendants to the Thomas Norris of Maryland - and to allow a generational manuscript of descendants that could be printed out into book form.

The early books was done in various types of formats and numbering systems or no numbering system or a limited numbering system.

http://www.geni.com/people/Joseph-Norris/6000000007601510990?through=4280977674990046577

Names under these parents have varied as to the following

  • Priscilla
  • Temperance
  • Priscilla Temperance
  • Temperance Priscilla

i had her linked to all there parents but this was creating mass confusion and wron merging - I have listed each under a new profile and in the suffix field listed the parents hopefully to prevent the merging of them back into one person - untill more documentation can be found - for now as one says I have "gone with the flow" and listed the Priscilla Temnerance Norris that married Aquilla Norris as daughter of Thomas (1716-1763) Norris, T.P.'s Parents (1716 - 1763) & Averilla Scott,
