This is page 4 of 4 tracing covering a branch of the Parris family from the Ightham, Offham & Plaxtol areas of Kent. This branch is connected to the Tomkin family by marriage. We think they are linked to the other Parris families the site but at the moment we lack the evidence to prove it. If you can help make that link, or if have a connection to any individual or family featured here, contact us.
