Origins of surname

The name comes from norreis, Norman-French for northerner, and may have indicated either a Norseman or Viking, or later a man living at the north house, or on the northern side of a village, from the old English nor and hus.

Early records

As far as Jersey is concerned, this is a West Country name. William Norris from Devon married Elizabeth Payn in St Saviour in 1781, followed by Robert, from the same county, and possibly his brother, and Rachel Bertram in St Saviour in 1785. John Hutchingson Norris, from Dorset, and Margaret Rogers, from Kent, were married in St Helier in 1828, and the following year, James Norris, from Plymouth, and Ann Dawe, from Stonehouse, were married at the same church.
