Baker Morrell (1779-1854)


Father: James Morrell
Mother: Anne Baker


Son: James Wright Hayward Morrell
Ann Elizabeth Morrell (June 17, 1804-?)
Son: Robert Price Morrell, Rev.
Son: Frederick Joseph Morrell
Son: George Kidd Morrell, Rev., Vicar of Moulsford
Son: Thomas Baker Morrell, Bishop Coadjutor of Edinburgh


Wife: Mary Elizabeth Chapman (6/21/1783-1861), daughter and co-heir of Rev Joseph Chapman, D.D., President of Trinity College, Oxford, and later Vice Chancellor of Oxford University.  Married 1801

NOTE:  There is considerable disagreement between "Burke's Landed Gentry" of 1937 and Brigid Allen's "Morrells of Oxford" regarding these siblings.  I have favored the latter in the below list.

Sister: Maria Morrell (1770-1800?), married Rev. Robert Wintle, Vicar of Culham, County of Oxford
Sister: Ann Morrell (1772-?)
Sisters: Mary and Sarah Morrell (1773-?), apparent twins
Brother: Deacon Morrell (1775-1854) , M.A. Christ Church, Oxford, unmarried
Sister: Elizabeth Morrell (1777-1846)
Sister: Frances Morrell (1780-1826)

Burke's lists Deacon and Baker, then lists their only sisters as "Margaretta" and Anne Deacon, with the former being the wife of Rev. Wintle (see Maria above) and the latter living until 1870 which seems unlikely if this is the "Ann" born in 1772.


Birthplace: Probably Oxford, England
Birthdate: June 21, 1779
Date of Death: 1854
