Hi Gary; I'm sorry for the delay, but I appreciate your response. I do not believe that we are related, because the Morling branch which I'm part of all live on the South coast of England. However there is a chance that we could be distantly related depending on where my family originated from in Eng. The earliest record is in the 1700's in Brighton , Sussex. But where they were located before that we don't know. For what it is worth I was in contact with a Morling family living in Western Australia, whose branch is connected with some Morling's living in the Suffolk area of England. They can be reached at "Phil & Loreley Morling",firstname.lastname@example.org They may be interested to hear from you.
