Notes for Joseph MOREY

Biographical Sketch (1969):6, p. 4. "It was in the fourth generation of this particular line of the Morey family that the first move was made away from the coast of New England. Joseph Morey, born at Plymouth 19 January 1710, married after 25 April 1733 Mary Swift (banns were posted on that date at Plymouth). Seven children were born to them at Plymouth before their removal in 1746 to Voluntown, Connecticut, a small village in New London County, Connecticut, three miles from the Rhode Island line."

Biographical Sketch (1969):6, p. 19. "Philemon Morey’s family leave the Plymouth records after 1745, and extensive research has not located their place of residence between 1745 and 1790 when Philemon appears at Rutland, Vermont. The place of death of Joseph and his wife Mary (Swift) Morey is not known. There is no published genealogical material on this particular branch of the family.

Families of the name of Morey are found early in New London, Connecticut; Litchfield and Sharon of that state; the counties of Dutchess, Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer, Washington, and Clinton had settlements in number of Moreys; and sons of an older brother of Joseph removed to Old Canaan, Connecticut before 1758, thence to Burnt Hills, Saratoga County, New York before 1790. Some Morey families went to Quebec and New Brunswick in Canada. In census and tax lists, published county and local town histories, church records of all these locations (except Canada), the compiler has not found a trace of the family of Joseph Morey after 1745."

1733 Marriage:654 "A purpose of marriage between Joseph Mory and Mary Swift both of Plymouth, Aprill 25, 1733."

1746 Land Purchase:1856, p. 28. "On 13 Oct. 1746 Joseph Morey of Plymouth, yeoman, is two deeds, sold lands in Plymouth to William Ellis and Seth Swift."
