|I am looking for The Morden Family, George Morden to begin
with, B; C1705 in Yorkshire. His Father, James came from
St. James Colchester, Essex as far as I know to this time.
He was born c1680/85. George, with brothers, Ralph, Joseph,
James, Daniel, emigrated to the continental U. S. in 1742.
They were Quakers and landed in Philadelphia, and naturally
split up after a number of years. There was probably a
Moses in there as well.
Several members of the family came to Upper Canada after
the American Revolution, settling between Eastern Ontario and South-western Ontario
between 1785 and 1793. Ralph, according to story was hung by the yanks for
aiding and abetting the escape of Robert Land, although I do
have doubts as to whether Ralph actually got hung.
