Direct and Indirect Descendants of
Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry


The Museum receives a lot of inquiries about the ancestry of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. In order to help the novice genealogist, we have included our version of the descendancy from Perry’s father, Christoper R. Perry. There are other charts online.

To be a “direct descendant” of O.H.Perry, you will need to find your grandparent’s or great-grandparent’s name in the top section of the chart below. If you find your family in the bottom section, you are an “indirect descendant.”

The Perry family can trace their ancestry to Edward Perry, who emigrated from England in the 1600’s. According to Holmes, there were another fifteen Perry ancestral heads in New England from 1620-1700. That’s a lot of Perry descendants who are not related.

Just as folks named a child “George Washington” Jones, etc., after the father of our country, there were many children named “Oliver Hazard Perry” Jones, etc., after the successful Battle of Lake Erie in 1813. Sometimes a child named for a famous person becomes “a direct descendant” as the story is passed through the generations.

Please be reassured that even if you find that you are not related to Commodore Perry, your family certainly contributed to history and are nonetheless important.

Update: Descendants please let us know if we have any errors on this genealogy. We recently received good information from descendant Alexander Perry Scott & George Dodge Cabot. Thank you for your help.
