Adding in the Fitz(-)harrises

For about a year or so I've been mulling about adding in the occurrences of Fitzharris (not many Fitz-Harris with the hyphen out there) into the Fitz(-)henry one name study.

The surnames Fitzhenry and Fitzharris were used interchangeably in Wexford, sometimes by the same people during their lifetime, although it seems that once a Fitz left Ireland, they stuck with either Fitzhenry or Fitzharris in their adopted country.

Adding the Fitzharrises to the database will hopefully allow me to fill in some of the missing links between families and rediscover people who seem to have just disappeared from the face of the earth. I'll slowly be adding in the Fitzharris references to the Blog and the website over the next few months.

Mrs Betty Walker has done a lot on research into the Fitzharris name and history in Wexford, and her website can be found at http://www.revolutionwow.co.uk/fitzharris/

Unfortunately Mrs Walker hasn't put a contact email on her website, so if she (or one of her friends!) is reading this, I'd be delighted to hear from her.

Why not subscribe to this blog and get the updates sent to your inbox? Or send us an email about your Fitz(-)henry family links.
