This book provides an excellent compilation of the family history of the Maris family. My connection to this family is through Jemima Maris (1775-1854), who married John Welsh Sr. (1770-1854), the father of my great-great-grandfather, John Welsh (1805-1886). The book traces the family history of Jemima back to George Maris (1632-1705) and includes information about the descendants of John Welsh, up through the time of the book’s publication in 1885.
I am fortunate enough to have an original edition of this book, which has very high-quality photographs or drawings of several of the individuals discussed in the book. I have uploaded some of those images to this site. The book also is available in PDF form through several sites, and I have chosen a relatively good-quality PDF to make available through this site. That link is here.
