The subject heading for this thread may be confusing. The discussion deals with two distinct Australian families. William MORCOM, born 26 Apr 1844 in Constantine, Cornwall, married Elizabeth POLE. Joseph MORCOM, born 1832 in Pennance Cornwall, married Harriett Elliot. I believe that,, if William and Joseph had a common ancestor, it was sometime before c. 1730.

Beware of the "William MORCOMs" in your research - they number several hundred!

So good to hear that you are still this side of the veil Denys. I defer to you to keep track of the multitudes of Williams and the considerable numbers of Joseph Morcoms! My best to Anne.

I notice this is an old post but hope you are still reading this board. I am preparing my Morcombe Family Tree and so far have the follow son to father line Rhys James morcombe, Darren Jame morcombe, Rodney Jame morcombe, Alan James Morcombe, James Snelson Morcombe, William Morcombe. We all lived in Adelaide Australia and I think William migrate as a boy. As far as I know William was born in 1844 and his father was John (info from marriage transcript). But this is where my trail has gone cold do you have any ideas or suggestions.
Anythink would be much appreciated

Misidentification is only too easy from the sparse records in parish records and this is particularly the case if one is researching a line with common names like William and John, but this is my best go at an ancestral line for James Nelson MORCOMBE [Next generation is marked by "||"]

Arthur MORCOMB married Anne JAMES in Illogan, Cornwall on 5 Dec 1751. She died c.Oct 1793.

William MORCOMB b.c.1754 in Cornwall, died July 1802 in Mawgan in Meneage, Cornwall. He married Phillipa WILLIAMS on 16 July 1787 in Bodmin. She was b.c.1759 and d.March 1811 in Cornwall

William MORCOM b.c. 1789 in Cornwall, d.19 Nov 1864 in Strathalbyn SA. He married Elizabeth TYACK on 26 Dec 1809 in Wendron. Elizabeth was b.c. 1790 in Wendron and d. Nov 1851.
William arrived in Port Adelaide on 13 Jan 1852 on the "Charlotte Jane". Elizabeth had died on the voyage. All seven of their surviving children emigrated to Australia and one of their sons, William, had 16 children. Their descendants are the largest family of all the MORCOM couples who emigrated to Australia.

John MORCOMBE b 18 Sep 1819 in Constantine, died Jan 1849. He married Mary PEARCE on 29 Jan 1841 in Constantine. She was b.c.1820 in St Keverne and d.15 Nov 1889 in North Adelaide. Mary and her three surviving children accompanied her father in law, William, when he emigrated to Australia.
