Died: unkn place

Parents: Unkn

Married: 12 Oct 1673 in Maryland to Jane Knea (Knew)

Per "History of Perquimans County" pg 384....James Morgan emigrant o NC came from Mary Land where he had married Jane Knea Oct 12, 1673. (Berkely Parish Register.)...James Morgan was granted 300 acres in Perq. Precinct May 22, 1694, "on branch of Vosses Creek" adjoining William Vosse and Francis Toms. His son John made a deed of gift to his daughter Mary Elliott, wife of Thomas Elliott Jr. on Jan 12, 1724/25, 50 acres on said Branch. He called this land "Broad Neck," and later it was spoken of as "on Morgan's Swamp" and it seems evident that it was situated on the south side of Vosses Creek, where said Toms land was located, and the Swamp mentioned is probably the one just above what is now called Brights Mill, between Winfall and Brights Creek.

Although James and Jane wed in Maryland, they were in Perquimans NC by 1694. Have not found dates of death on them, but probably died in or near Perquimans Co NC.

(My connection) b. abt 1680. She wed 18 Feb 1696 at Perq. Co. NC to James Perisho. He was b. 25 Nov 1676 in Perq. Co NC. We descend through their son, John Perisho. See the Perisho Line for children and descendants.

The Morgan family were Quakers. According to "Memories and Records of Eastern North Carolina" by Mary Weeks Lamberth...Three Morgan brothers, James, John and Niles came from Llandoff, Glamorganshire, Wales to Boston in 1636. John left soon for Virginia, Niles settled in Springfield, MA, and James at New London, Conn.

Is our #1 James the son of John who went to VA?
