  • The good professor is my third cousin, twice removed.

    I have done a deal of work on his family history.

    I would welcome communication with anyone with a similar interest.

  • My father was a distant cousin and we visited many times. He gave me my dog and I have a pair of silver candlesticks he gave me. My father who was also a historian was left some items and some of his papers

  • Hello Margaret, great to hear from you.
    I am George Morgan and live in Co Wicklow in Ireland.
    Prof Wardell's wife was a Morgan and he communicated with my Grandfather back in the 1940's.
    They exchanged genealogy data about the Morgan heritage. I have his notes.
    I would be interested to find out about the papers that he left to your family.
    Do you know the precise relationship between your father and John W?
    I have been to visit Old Abbey on several occasions in the last few years.
    Can we communicate further via email  -  I am

    Take care
