Bill MORLEY's family- SA
« on: Saturday 16 February 13 10:14 GMT (UK) »
William Morley was born 20 Apr 1854 in Booborowie to James and Mary (nee Swan).
In 1877 he married Mary Ann LOCKYER (not sure exactly when or where).
They had 9 children. I have plenty of info on them. Then I presume Mary died but I can't find any evidence of that.
On 18 June 1919 at Quorn Bill married Emma ASHLEY (fmly GEORGE, nee HART). She died in 1922 and he in 1931.
What I am really after is information on Bill's parents and brothers and sisters. I believe he had at least 2 brothers: James and Samuel. And 1 sister, Susan. I think Samuel was working at Mount Eba in the 1890's (so was Emma Ashley's previous husband, Henry).

A James MORLEY arrived in South Australia on board the Himalaya on 17th September 1849.

There are references on Trove Newspapers  to unclaimed letters to 1854, and property being purchased from him near Port Augusta in 1860.
