The Parisii or Parisi tribe was a Celtic tribe that existed in England in what is now Yorkshire and in Normandy France during Roman times when it was Gaul. (I found this on the internet.)

Also, there was a history of the Parisi name in an Italian book I read that said the family originally came from Paris or Normandy during the Middle Ages to Sicily. They were Normans who were given feudal lands in Sicily, as well as being knights. Of course, you can't believe everything you read. I have yet to find any other confirmation of this, but I'm still looking.

Please e-mail me back with any other information you have.
