    Notes 
    • It seems likely that James (Ferris, son of Jeffrey Ferris) had only the one son, but there may have been daughters. One may have been Deborah Ferris who married 14 Jan 1701/2 Jonathan Bell of Greenwich as his second wife, as she named her eldest son Francis after Jonathan's grandfather (he had a son Jonathan, his own and his father's name, by his former wife), and her second son James, perhaps after her own father.

      Jacobus does not name her as a daughter of James Ferris. [3]
