I'm looking for information on Amelia Morey b abt 1798, possibly the daughter of Samuel Morey. It is likely she has siblings Reuben, Sarah, and John as they were other Moreys in the area. She married William Garvey and they lived in Maitland Ontario.
Any further info would be greatly appreciated!

Dear Tara

Reuben Morey married 26 Dec 1820 Abigail Pennock at Elizabethtown, ONT, CAN. He was the son of Samuel Morey and Sarah Gardiner. The Morey Clan is KLN RI George.

Samuel Morey was b. 12 Nov 1769, Strafford, Orange, VT, USA, son of Zenas Morey and Abigail Ellis. About two thirds of American Moreys belong to KLN RI George. To get a better perspective of this Morey Clan, email me at: geoffrey.williams@xtra.co.nz

Surnames: Morrey, Topham
I am looking for information on James Morrey who was born in 1783 at Nantwich,Chesire, England. He married Mary Topham who was born in 1789 and christened 28 June 1789 at Nantwich Parish, Nantwich, Cheshire, England. They were married 4 Sep 1812 at Nantwich, Cheshire, England. They were the parents of six children, Thomas, John , Ann, Sarah, Henry, and Josiah. We have been searching for the parents of James. Do you happen to have any information of any of these in your Morey Forum?

Dear Anna

These KLN Mary Topham Moreys are a Brickwall. One of their sons considered his mother was born in Wales, (John Morey (UT CEN 1880 P449D B: ENG F: ENG M: WLS) living at Kanosh, Millard, UT, USA 1880 aged 64). Other than the 04 Sep 1812 marriage and the births of their six children, the next record the Morey Forum has is the 1850 census (HO107-2169-708), where James Morrey is 1851 aged 68, occupation Hawker living at 12 Vetch Row, Nantwich, CHS, ENG. Mary Topham was 1851 aged 62, was the only other person in the household. These Moreys may have been Quaker, so I suggest you have a look at records belonging to the Society of Friends, possibly ex Frandley Meeting House.

Surnames: MOREY, Legrand
I am seeking information re Bethia Morey, born about 1836 in England, arrived Tasmania in 1858 (seemingly aa a bounty immigrant), & married in Hobart 1863 (to William Legrand ). I have found no mention of Bethia thereafter. I would very much like to find out where she went to & whether or not she had relatives in Tasmania.

Grateful for any information whatsoever re Bethia.

Dear Joan

I know nothing about Bethia Morey in Tasmania, except what you tell me. She was from Buckland, DOR, ENG christened 02 Oct 1831 daughter of Joseph Morey b. 19 Jan 1795 Buckland, Milton Abbas, Blandford Forum, DOR, ENG, and Charlotte Russell. Her sisters are not traceable by the Morey Forum, but brothers were:

John Nelson MOREY M C 17 Jun 1821
George MOREY M C 28 Sep 1834
Jonathan Russell MOREY M B 13 Apr 1838
John Nelson MOREY M D 1838-1Q

Any George Morey in Tasmania does not fit the above. There are no Jonathan Moreys there and John Morey died in 1838 in England. The clan is KLN Elizabeth Huet.

Kind regards, Geoffrey

Thank you very much, Geoffrey, for your welcome reply.

You have been of great help to me in my search for Bethia Morey, giving clarification re her English family and ruling out the possibility that the Tasmanian George Morey was Bethia's brother.

Please pardon my ignorance, but does the "KLN Elizabeth Huet" mean that George (or Bethia) belongs to Elizabeth's line? If so, is this what I should now seek to find?

With thanks

Joan
