Alexander MORRIS

(1777 - 1854)
Father*Fergusson MORRIS b. 1747
Mother*Jean ARTHUR1
Alexander MORRIS was born in Irvine, Ayrshire, on 6 December 1777.2 and was baptised on 16 December 1777 in Irvine.2

Marriage banns for Alexander and Marion HOWE were published on 18 September 1814 in Irvine, Ayrshire.3

He was listed in the 1841 census at West Back Rd in Irvine, Ayrshire, with his wife Marion; he was 'living on independent means'. Their child Margaret was listed with them.6

He was widowed on the death of his wife Marion before 1851.

His estate was confirmed in Ayrshire on 14 April 1854 with Alexander Fergusson MORRIS appointed executor and the inventory and dispersal of goods being based on the pre-nuptial contract between Alexander and his wife Marion (deceased); likewise his son Alexander appears to be signing the 'probate' as executor, without actually being named as such.9

Alexander Fergusson MORRIS

(c 1817 - 1885)
Father*Alexander MORRIS b. 1777, d. 1854
Mother*Marion HOWE b. 1786, d. b 1851
Alexander Fergusson MORRIS was born in Greenock, Renfrewshire, circa 1817.
The siblings Alexander and Margaret were listed in the 1851 census at West Back Rd in Irvine, Ayrshire, with their father Alexander MORRIS. Alexander was a ship-master.1

He received his Master's Certificate (#1489) on 27 December 1851 at London. This had been exchanged for a First Class Certificate issued previously in Glasgow, 23 Mar 1849.2

At some time in the late 1840s he was master of the Elizabeth, as she appears in Melbourne shipping arrivals under his command. By 1852 he was in charge of the Caroline Agnes, which arrived in Adelaide from London on 5 May 1852 before sailing to Melbourne in June, then leaving for Guam in early 1853. This ship, of 570 tons, had been built in Sunderland in 1847 for Hamlin & Co of Greenock, the company where Alexander's brother Arthur worked. The painting of the Caroline Agnes under full sail later hung in Arthur's house in Dunedin for some years, and may have been a wedding present from Alexander to his brother.3,4

He was appointed executor of Alexander MORRIS's estate in Ayrshire on 14 April 1854, without actually being named as such, as there was a pre-nuptial contract between his parents, rather than a will.5

He was appointed Harbour Master of Southland Province, New Zealand on 28 May 1862.6

He was listed in the 1871 census as Head of Family at West Back Rd in Irvine, Ayrshire; he was a mariner and the household included his sister Margaret Hunter MORRIS.7

He was listed in the 1881 census as Head of Family at May Cottage, West Back Rd in Irvine, Ayrshire; he was a ship-master (never married) and the household included his sister Margaret Hunter MORRIS.8

Alexander died on 28 February 1885 in Irvine, Ayrshire.9,10,11

His estate was confirmed in Irvine, Ayrshire, on 25 September 1885 with Margaret Hunter MORRIS appointed executrix but was complicated by its geographic spread - although confirmed in Irvine, 10 Sep 1885 with a value of £1043/11/3, it was also noted in the English Probate Calendar and there were further affidavits by his brother Arthur in Dunedin dated 1885-6.12,13,10
