A quick bit of work suggests no obvious links between the Morgans and Martha

John Charles and Eliza born c1863. Her maiden name is Parsons

His mother's maiden name was Ritchings

Yes, I also had a little look for a link. I was hoping for something.

Thanks everyone for your help.  It's a tricky one.

Yes they were married in 1863.  You go to press one button on the computer but your finger presses another one instead!  ;D

I don't believe that the Morgans are related to Martha and she isn't living with them in the 1911 census.  I haven't thought about obtaining Martha's will.  I just presumed that she left her money to them.  As an aside, I haven't been able to find a death registration for Martha either!

I should point out that I looked also to see if they were perhaps living in Scotland but I couldn't find anything there either.

Well that is very interesting and intriguing, Jonw65

It certainly seems correct, doesn't it.  There are lots of indicators. 

I've tried to find a birth or a death for Henry 'Ross' but no luck yet.

Cheers

In again in February 10th 1891, for 39 days, disposed for convalescent.  Slightly different age, and just 'Scotland' so could be a different man.
