Berry was an auctioneer and estate agent. His three sons were so successful in business they each became peers of the realm. Seymour became Lord Buckland, his middle brother William, Lord Camrose, and the youngest Gomer, Lord Kemsley. The Harris family owned a portrait studio in Merthyr Tydfil during the late nineteenth century. George later moved to Cardiff and opened a studio in Queen Street. After World War One he and his family emigrated to Australia.
