Ancestral Chains (DNA Part VII of VIII) Morgan Bloodline By Mark D Bishop
Paperback: $21.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this work, the reader is directed to Claydon village in rural Suffolk. Here the Morgan family of the author's memory lived, worked and propagated. Life was generally good with some up-and-downs,... More > as these Morgans were descended from the minor gentry of Suffolk who originally hailed from Ipswich. Yet the Morgan Bloodline in the 19th and 20th centuries was ruled by trades people; the butchers & blacksmiths of the village, each with his business at the other end of town. Butcher by trade, but not by temperament and sporting the name Winfred Edward Mosart Morgan, this great-grandfather had had much trauma in his early life, but was fun to be with. Even then, he would never admit that he and the Morgan blacksmith family down the lane were distant cousins. Musical flair was in the church-going family who were integral to village life, but tragedy was never far away, as attested by the Henry Moore sculpture that graced their local church before strangely being moved to nearby Barham. Oh yes, there was money, too!< Less
"Ancestral Chains, Bishop Bloodline: Dna Part 1 of 8" By Mark D Bishop
eBook (PDF): $7.82

Further documentary evidence of this surname turns up in the 14th century, being listed by P H Reany, but in other counties, notably not Kent or Sussex. This work is the first of VIII DNA Parts, it being an account of my ancestry focusing on the eyes, ears, grey matter, genes and bones of my Bishop ancestors, who are mostly from Kent and Sussex. It tells what they did for work and recreation, how they died and how they affected the world and me. Thus Part I will concentrate on those ancestors of mine who later merged their gene-pool in Middlesex, to create one eighth of my DNA: my great-grandfather, Walter George Bishop (1863-1927)< Less
