Emily Maud Moore Morgan born 1881
« on: Tuesday 31 October 17 00:17 GMT (UK) »
...was born in Armagh. I am trying to clarify who were her parents.
I am a direct descendant of the Rev. Moore Morgan of Dunlavin. His grandson, Rev. Canon William Moore James Morgan, was the Head Master of the Royal School for many years, and I suspect Emily was his daughter, given the "Moore Morgan" parts of her name, but I am yet to find any reference to confirm this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have William Moore James Morgan's will? Granted at Dublin 11 March 1913. Executor Edward Watson. W M J M' will has 5 codicils so he changed its content over the years.
If she was his daughter then she may be mentioned in the will.
Wills and letters of administration were only lodged in the Public Records Office 20 years after they were granted.  This means that when the Public Records Office was destroyed in 1922, testamentary records from the previous decade had not yet been deposited.  If you find your ancestor in the Calendar of Wills and Administrations after 1911 you can order a copy of their will, administration and the supporting documentation, such as schedule of assets. The Calendars from 1911-1920 are available on www.familysearch.org and the annual calendars from 1922-1982 can be downloaded from the website of the National Archives of Ireland. After 1918 the Calendars are only applicable to the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland.  Further information on wills proved in Northern Ireland after this date can be found on the PRONI website.

Emily Maud Moore MORGAN married Ralph Durrant Sadlier STONEY on Jul 26 1900
They lived in England after that

William on 1901 census LINK at 34 in Abbey Street (Armagh Town, Armagh)

and on 1911 census LINK at 25 in Abbey Street (Armagh North Urban, Armagh)

In 1911 his wife Frances Margaret states they were married fifteen years and had no children; implying she was not his first wife and the children were from an earlier marriage
William MORGAN m Frances Margaret CRAIG 1895 London England Q4 V1a P850 at St. Michael's Chester Square

Sidney Palmer MORGAN LINK #194 was born Jan 20 1894;
his mother is shown as Constance Mary SMYTH
Constance MORGAN died in 1895 LINK #349
She married William MORGAN in 1894 LINK

William MORGAN first married Wilhelmina France HARTFORD in 1869
Civil Reference Mountmellick Q1 V13 P415 - Jul 13 1869 Portarlington

They had at least eight children of which five were registered as just male or female
1870 May 25 Male LINK #176 - Possibly John William
1871 Dec 20 Male LINK #271 - Possibly Augustus Edward
1873 May 23 Male LINK #270 - Possibly Arthur Henry
1875 Apr 15 Male LINK #431 -
1877 May 11 Female LINK #189 - Possibly Wilhelmina Sarah Moore
1879 May 19 Edith Mary LINK #56
1881 May 18 Emily Maud LINK #152
1882 Nov 05 Frederick Moore LINK #118

The birth in 1873 or 1875 is most likely that of Arthur Henry shown as 37 on the 1911 census


Therefore by 1911 William Moore MORGAN had at least nine children
8 with his first wife Wilhelmina Frances HARTFORD
1 with his second wife Constance Mary SMYTH
0 with his third wife Frances Margaret CRAIG
