Nattriss, Nattrass in London

These names originate in the north-east (mainly Durham / Northumberland), but there have been some Nattrisses, Nattrasses, Nattresses in London since at least the 18th century. My Nattriss ancestors trace back to John Nattriss, tailor, born 8 July 1763 in Shadwell. His father's name was also John Nattriss, and believed also to have been a tailor.

There is a family legend that says there were four brothers named Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John who all came to London and settled in different areas. There certainly are other Nattrass and Nattriss families in London, whose relationship to ours we don't know. Also, within our family there have been a number of sons named Matthew and Mark (no Luke for some reason).

Can anyone shed any light on this? Anyone related to other London Nattriss or Nattrass families?
