Looking for Morris bloodline that links back to Anthony Morris born in 1530 wales and beyond
I have not been researching this long, but since 2007.
have found links to the morris line back to Anthony born in wales in 1530 and then back farther to Capt Thomas Edward Morris born 1455 and from there back to anthony morris born in 1435.
Now that is where I had to go by gut feeling, intuition and research and logic. then linked to John Morris born in 1415 married to Lucy Arundel.
time line matches up, places matches up but no real proof. From there the links go back to King Alfred the Great which means that the MOrris's are actually SAXON?
so I just would love to find others who are doing this same research. there are so many explanations for the name of Morris.
1. welsh meaning war and blood or bloody warriors
2. norman root
3. from the moors.
now with the link to the saxons the bloody warriors one makes sense. since last names were not something that existed before the doomdays book and would have started out as nicknames or the son or dau of type thing or occupations.
But am I saxon? am i welsh because that is where the Morris settled for the most part around Herefordshire?
Am I Celtic (which is a language group not really a nationality)?
None of it really matters in the scheme of today. all royalty etc etc is too far removed and is laughable but to know what I am.
my african roots can never be found except thru spirit work. and that cannot be proven. so that is why the other branch is calling to me. who am I? what am I?
American, yes. but made up of what?
