Morley family

Post 25 June 2019, 11:48

Seeking UK lineage of James Palmer Morley, born May 13, 1850 in Mildenhall, Suffolk, England. Baptised in Mildenhall on July 7, 1850. James Palmer Immigrated to the United States ca. 1871. He married Elizabeth Jane Jones (born in Darlington, Ontarion Canada) in Abilene, Kansas, USA in 1878.

Records indicate James Palmer's parents were James Morley (1826 -1892) and Maria (Palmer) Morley (1826 - 1904). It is possible the Morley's and Palmer's may have Immigrated together or were related due to the "Palmer" name in both families. So far possible matches in Geneanet to these parents do not appear to be correct (no "James" listed with birth in 1850).

Any link or supporting evidence would be appreciated.

David Ward (wife "Morley" is the great great granddaughter of James Palmer Morley, and granddaughter of James Ross Morley).
