The table below shows that in 1901 the names Farris and Faris
are found primarly in England with the UK. One would then expect then that most
persons by these names have English roots. The only other locale where a
significant number of Faris or Farris are found is Ireland. Further discussion
will be limited to the Irish since the none of the ancient Fergusson are rooted
in England and thus neither would any sept be so rooted.
Griffith's Valuation is a property survey that was conducted
in Ireland between 1847 and 1864. Since census records prior to 1901 do not
survive for Ireland the survey is used to get an idea of how the Faris and
Farris were distributed in Ireland circa 1855. All Faris are clearly connected
to county Cavan and the map below show the reside in and near the parish
Killashandra. There are less Farris in total and there are a significant number
in county Carlow.

- In the ySearch database is a Stafford (ID: 9CSPU) whose ancestor is
a Ferris born 1941 in county Cavan. He is a perfect match to John Ferris and
several Ferguson in Haplogroup R1b. However, only 10 markers have been tested
so no definitive conclusion can be reached at this time about the significance
of the matches.
