James Morrell (1739-1807)
Father: Jeremiah Morrell
Mother: Mary Smith
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
Daughter: Maria Morrell (1770-1800?), married Rev.
Robert Wintle, Vicar of Culham, County of Oxford
Daughter: Ann Morrell (1772-?)
Daughters: Mary and Sarah Morrell (1773-?), apparent twins
Son: Deacon Morrell (1775-1854) , M.A. Christ Church, Oxford,
Daughter: Elizabeth Morrell (1777-1846)
Son: Baker Morrell (1779-1854)
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.
First Wife: Elizabeth Sheen (1741-1765)
Second Wife: Ann Baker (1741-1819) of Moulsford
Brother: Jeremiah Morrell (1729-1795)
Brother: William Morrell (1731-?)
Brother: Charles Morrell (1735-?)

- Mark's sons Mark and James started Morrell's Brewery in Oxford.
James also built the original structure of what became Headington Hill
for Stephanie Jenkins' excellent history of this family in Headington).
Brother: Robert Morrell (1741-1816) - Robert's son (also names
Robert) was also involved in Morrell's Brewery.
Sister: Mary Morrell (1745-1765)
