St Morwenna Church in Marhamchurch
« on: Sunday 11 February 18 13:08 GMT (UK) »
If anyone is visiting St Morwenna in Marhamchurch I would be grateful if you would look at the memorials on my behalf.
I’m trying to trace the Marrais/Marrys/ Marhayes family who according to Magna Britannica by Daniel Lysons, pub 1814, had an ‘ancient memorial in the church’. I realise this is a long shot but there may be a slate memorial on the south wall that, according to the listing of the church, is currently illegible. Could this be the Marrais memorial or has it somehow survived from the sixteenth century (?) elsewhere?
If any one local knows anything of this ancient family I would be very interested to learn more. Again, according to some sources, their seat, the ‘barton-house’, (I have no idea what this is) became a farmhouse owned by a Mr Richard Burden Bray in the nineteenth century. Does anyone know if this house still exists?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
