My line comes from Lincs also. I found some info on Greg Jones' web pages, although I already had the info. Edward Marris, b. abt 1764, d. Feb. 18, 1827, Irby, Lincs. 9 children, all born in Irby. My line is William, b. abt. 1780, then John Morvison (born before his parents were married, and went by Marris after entering the US abt, 1585) was b. Aug. 11, 1808 in Swallow. Any info to tie to any Marris in Lincs would be greatly appreciated.
