Origins of surname

This name may be linked to the capital city of France, or be derived from 'parysche', the old English word for parish

Early records

Pierre Paris, who was Rector of St Clement, was buried in the parish churchyard in 1630.

Nicolas Paris married Anne Rebours at St Saviour in 1714. It is not certain that he was the same Nicolas Paris whose four children were baptised in St Peter between 1711 and 1721. That was probably Nicolas, married to Elizabeth Mauger, who are both named at the baptism of Josue in the parish in 1723. There are three other Paris baptisms in the St Peter register up to 1732, for which only the father, Nicolas, is named.
