Research Notes

  • Upon the death of his nephew, Sir James Morgan inherited the Baronet title, but not his nephew's estate. His nephew, Sir Edward Morgan considered him "a violent zealot" for the Church of Rome and was careful to provide against his succeeding to the estate. Sir James was the last to hold the Baronet title and Sir Edward's estate went to his own daughter Frances (Morgan) Bray.3

    [Note of Caution: Source contains errors. According to Scroggins (2009)6, Appleton Morgan confuses the 2 wives of Sir James Morgan, by stating that 1st wife Ann Hopton was the widow Jones and 2nd wife Lady Alice Hopton was the mother of Edward Morgan. Through primary records, he proves that 2nd wife Lady Alice Hopton was actually the widow Jones when she married Sir James Morgan 27 Oct 1695 and that 1st wife Ann was the more likely mother of the children based on their calculated birthdates.]
