So I am a descendant of Ian Esom Farris who was a member of Clan Farris Sept of Clan Ferguson way back in 1534 when he and a number of his family (Including his oldest son of whom I am descended) I was wondering if there is anyone else on here who can provide any more history regarding Clan Farris Prior to 1534. I know most of not all of what has happened to the family since my ancestors hopped the pond but before that it seems like no history is available online.
Thank you in advance for any help.

Yes I believe they were a group of well known janitors and black boots of William Wallace.

https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/...nd_before_1855

"Church records are the primary source of birth and marriage information for pre-1855 Scottish ancestry. The Roman Catholic Church was the state church until 1560, the Episcopalian Church was the state church for a time in the 1600s, and the Presbyterian Church was permanently established as the state church in 1690 and was known as the Church of Scotland. Few early Catholic or Episcopalian Church records survive. Some records for the cities survive from the late 1500ís but the records of some country parishes only survive from the 1700s. There are many gaps in records either due to the loss of records or due to their not being kept well in the first place. Burials were infrequently recorded."
