Henry James or James Henry Morley, UK, m. Mary Kelly
Posted by: Jennifer Dougan (ID *****0550) Date: April 15, 2007 at 17:37:17

I am searching for Henry James or James Henry Morley, married to Mary Kelly. They had 6 children that I know of: Arthur, (d. 8/26/1930 in Charlton, Kent), Edward, Harry, Florence, Ettie, and Ethelbert ( b. 7/18/1883 Woolwich, m. 12/16/1905 Woolwich to Amelia Louise Fowler). HJ or JH was a Sergeant in the Royal Artillery and posted to India for many years, and is listed on Ethelbert's birth certificate as Henry James, but on Ethelbert's marriage certificate as James Henry.

I have not been able to determing where HJ or JH is from, or when he was born, and do not know which county they came from; they may not have been from Woolwich, as family story has it that they returned from India for the birth of Ethelbert, and may have just been in Woolwich since it was near the Royal Artillery. The other children may have been born while the family was in India; Ethelbert was primarily raised there.

Family stories mention that HJ or JH may have co-owned the Morley Hotel which was on Trafalgar Square, but that his brothers sold it and absconded with the money while he was in India.

Any information on any member of this family would be appreciated. I have quite a bit on Amelia Louise Fowler's ancestry, and on the descendants of Ethelbert Morley to share: surnames Fowler, Weatherall, Shelton and Kirk.
