Welcome to the Herriott Heritage Association
“A Stout Heart in a New Land”
A Family Named Herriott
WITH ALL OF ITS VARIANT SPELLINGS including Harriot, Harriott, Herriot, Heriot, Harriett, Herritt, Hariot, Hereot
The Herriott Heritage Association (HHA), a non-profit organization in the United States of America, sponsors this website. The HHA is a worldwide surname organization not limited to a single related family but to all families with the Herriott surname and its many variant spellings. We welcome everyone who is a Herriott (any and all of its variant spellings) descendant, whether or not they still carry the Herriott name itself. People with the Herriott surname make up only a small fraction of Herriott descendants but we are all Herriotts.
You will find much Information here, including that about the HHA itself, our Surname Project (DNA studies), a number of family genealogies, our reunions, our publications, and even original source documents in our archives. Some of the information is available to everyone but some requires registering with us and logging-in. Registering and logging-in is free; there are no registration or subscription costs.
A highlight is our DNA work. In 2006, we started the Herriott Surname Project which uses DNA testing to further establish our roots and relationships among the various “Herriott” branches. The project has been very successful not only in aiding our genealogical research but in breaking new ground by being first to have DNA evidence accepted as part of the documentation for DAR membership.
