"Attention Local Historians! Do you know the Morrish Family?"

Phil Toms Explains - "My Gran was born in St. Tudy, and her mothers side of the family lived there for many generations back to the early 1800s at Red Vale, and then Penvose Mill around 1900. My Grans mother was called Violet Mary Morrish born in 1911. She married a Stephen Glover of Port Isaac and had my Gran and Great Aunt before dying young in 1935. I have a lot of information and photographs about the Glover side but nothing about the Morrish's except names and places. I was wandering if you could post a shout out to anybody from St. Tudy who may remember the Morrish siblings. There were brothers called Thomas, Arthur, John, William who died in WW1, Charles and Frederick, and sisters called Elizabeth Harper, Bertha Harper, Gwendoline Martin and Gladys Stone and a couple other siblings that died in infancy. They were the children of John Maynard Morrish and Mary Jane Neal. I'm basically hoping to find some photos of them, especially my Great Gran Violet, and her parents, and also of anyu stories or memories about them.

I have 3 copies of photos of Fred, Thomas and William who fought in the war, which i got from a St. Tudy website as someone who was doing a memorial thing contacted me on ancestry.com last year. Other than those 3 photos, i have none. My Gran was bought up with Gwendoline, and my aunt was bought up with Elizabeth until after the war as Stephen Glover was in the navy. All my research has been done on ancestry sites.

The first is Fred, the second is Thomas and the third is William who died in France in the war . . .
