I think that Jeffrey Ferris who is related goes back to 1610 as far as I know. According to my Dad, another James Ferris, all the Ferris's are related. Also can be spelled as Farris. There is also a Ferrisburg, or Ferrisberg, as an East coast city, perhaps in NH or Vermont? My fathers father was also named James. Captain Jim Ferris served the Union during the civil war.
Anyway, the name goes back to Leichester, England, around 1610 with Jeffrey Ferris. Going before that yields conjecture due to poor record keeping I guess?
Hope this has helped you somewhat.
