Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Occupation of Jean Morgue
« on: Saturday 26 June 21 12:18 BST (UK)  »
This is a baptism in the French Protestant church of the Hospital in Spitalfields

The entries are in french but the occupations of the fathers are in English.

So is Jean Morgue’s occupation “turns a mill”???

Surrey / MORGAN, William: St. Thomas, Southwark, gent. 1749

Morgan, William: St. Thomas, Southwark, gent

The will for this man is offsite at National Archives  but it is one I have to order. Before I risk the £8.20 quote fee plus whatever the copying fee is I wondered if anyone could see anything I have missed that might  help pin his identity down a bit more.

The notes at TNA say the date refers to the date of the document, not the date of probate etc.  so he may not have died in 1749

I don't see any reference that seems to fit on London Lives, nor LMA, nor Ancestry.
On FindMyPast there is a burial 23 March 1749 at All Hallows the Great. but it is a transcription only and no help.   Isn't All Hallows on the wrong side of the river?
I cannot see a death or a report of the will (which is in Supplementary Will Series 1 "Most of these records are contentious" ) in the newspapers.

I am trying to track down the William who was father of David Walter MORGAN Baptism St George, Southwark, 1733 (died 1795) about whom there are many threads on RC.  In the hope that he is also the father of John MORGAN of the Inner Temple c 1734 - 1803

(Although the will of David Walter's uncle the Rev John Morgan who died 1776 does not mention any other Morgan than David Walter, I live in hope).

Many Thanks

Essex / Leonora wife of the Reverend John Morgan. died 1764

John Morgan M.A. was vicar of Braintree, Essex  from 1738 until his death

*. Patron details given as OHNIN,  widow, female.

Rector of Little Leighs, Essex  from 1750, and also Chaplain for Elizabeth Baroness Dowager Abergavenny
1753 he was appointed Chancellor of St Davids.

John Morgan died 1776 and asked to be buried with his wife at Braintree
Found transcript of burial for Leonora MORGAN 16 September 1764 wife of the Reverend Morgan.

Can anyone see a marriage for John MORGAN to Leonora ?
* Any candidates for  Mrs OHNIN ?   Might it be a mis-transcription of Olmius?

This query is connected to, but separate from,  this thread

The Common Room / Dispensation passed the Great Seal
« on: Tuesday 15 June 21 06:54 BST (UK)  »
In 1752

A dispensation passed the Great Seal to enable the Rev John Morgan, Clerk, M.A.
Chaplain to the Rt Hon Elizabeth Baroness Dowager of Abergavennny to hold
 The rectory of Little Lees in the County of Essex and Diocese of London together
With the vicarage of Braintree in the same county and diocese”

He was appointed to Braintree in 1738 and to Little Leighs in 1750.

What would the dispensation have actually been for?  I thought it was common for Reverends. To hold several parishes.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Nephew?

Hoping you agree David Walter Morgan is the testator’s nephew

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / What is the Groom's surname please?

Both Ancestry & FindMyPast have transcribed this as HASSAWGH  which doesn't seem right, but I am not doing any better

The history of commoners of GB and Ireland has it as HASSEL. but it is clearly more than that.

London and Middlesex / Phillida Du Croz baptism London about 1781
« on: Friday 04 June 21 07:48 BST (UK)  »
Looking for a baptism of Phil(l)id(d)a Du CROZ  about 1781 in London.   

Her father John Du CROZ   married Susanna Sabrey 1773 and there is a baptism of a son John 1779
There should then be an Ann born about 1780
And Phillida in 1781

Susanna was buried 7 May 1783

But the year before on 9 Oct 1782 Sarah MORTON was baptised, d of John du CROZ and Ann MORTON.

Then John du CROZ  and Ann MORTON married 2nd June  1783

A few other children followed whose baptisms can be found.

It is my suspicion that both Ann and Phillida are Ann’s children not Susanna’s but I cannot find a baptism for either

I do not need any information about Philidda’s marriage and children. It is just her baptism I seek,

I should add, it is possible they are non-conformist.

I would be grateful if anyone could transcribe this.  It is OK to leave it in the Dutch, I can deal with that separately I hope, but I am having trouble figuring out much at all.

It doesn't seem to link properly.  Enter Jacobus du Cros in the search field

 The third one is the one of interest.

du Cros   Jacobus.     Amsterdam 10-09-1765 Notariële archieven

there are 4 pages that look interesting.
