The ARDIS Septs
William ARDIS, born about 1782 -- place unknown. Resided Newtownhamilton, County Armagh, Ulster UK.

The William ARDIS Sept derives from Tullyvallan, just outside Newtownhamilton, County Armagh in present-day Northern Ireland UK. Its prior origin is unknown, but the descendents of William ARDIS continue to live in Armagh, have spread to Evart, Osceola County, Michigan USA, circa 1860, and at other times have settled at various places in Eastern Canada and throughout the USA.

What's This About ARDIS "Septs", Anyway?

-- Ronald Ardis Brooks, Lakeland, Florida USA
RonBrooks@ardisnet.com

"Sept" is an Irish term, adopted by the Scottish Clans, to identify major groupings within a family organization ie. "branches" on the "family tree". We use the term loosely here. None of the ARDIS "Septs" we will identify here are organized into any sort of formal "family association". Neither do they have any real proof of their actual ARDIS Kinship, one "Sept" to another.

Still, we use this term... advisedly... and to indicate our belief that in time, and with proper genealogical effort, the relationships will indeed emerge. Until then we are on a great adventure to explore whether the family groupings that share the ARDIS and Related Surnames are truly ONE ARDIS Family!

 

 

Mathias ARDIS, born 1724 October 29 -- place unknown. Resided Beech Island, Edgefield County, South Carolina USA.

The Mathias ARDIS Sept derives from Beech Island in present-day Aikens County, South Carolina USA. Its prior origin is still unknown, but the descendents of Mathias ARDIS have spread across the Southern United States, especially to Georgia, Alabama, and Texas, as well as on to Arizona and California. Some can also be found today in Florida and Oklahoma.

John ARDIS, born 1743 -- place unknown. Resided Camden District, South Carolina USA.

The John ARDIS Sept derives from what is now Sumter County, South Carolina USA. While its prior origins are unknown, the descendents of John ARDIS continue to live and work in Sumter County and have spread to other regions within South Carolina and across the United States.

The Lost Tribe of ARDIS

Many ARDIS Folk in America, and around the world, cannot tie themselves to any of the three (3) major ARDIS Septs. We sometimes humorously (we hope) refer to these as the "Lost Tribe of ARDIS Sept". We believe further research will help many of these Folk find a kinship within one of the three (3) major ARDIS Septs. Others may may help us identify additional Septs as yet unknown.
