Morcom/Morcombe One-Name Study

Morcom/Morcombe family codes and charts

If you have a fairly large monitor screen (and good eyesight), you may prefer to view a much more informative version of this table, available here. In particular this version lists the number of individuals in each chart and the foreign regions where members of the family have been found.

The larger trees (in bold print) in this website produce such huge charts that sub-charts are also provided for branches of these families. For each chart or sub-chart, the MORCOMBE male heading the family is named. Sub-charts are denoted with a * before the familycode. Birth dates should be regarded as approximate, because, even if they are not marked as "c.....", many will be based on christening dates which may be a few years later than the actual birth.

Families with fewer than 50 members will generally not have charts, though a few of them will still be coded. The trees for these uncharted families can be reconstructed by identifying parents and children in the person details.

The family codes below are a combination of the birth place and forename of the MORCOM/BE male heading a particular tree or sub-tree. However, identical male forenames occur so frequently in St ISSEYjohn GWENNAP, that it has been necessary to distinguish repeated Christian names by a suffix 1 or 2.

Further research should reduce the 30 separate families in this chart as well as adding some of the smaller unlisted families to their main line. Please let me know if you discover links which will re-unite families. Equally welcome will be evidence that some branches are incorrectly joined to a family

Finding the full tree for a chart listed below

The easiest approach is to search the Person Index by the surname, forename and of the male heading the family. When his full details appear click on the chart you wish to view.
