John Morgan of “Moor Corner”

*Note: Updated Information. I used to have the children of John and Sarah split in to two families. I have now combined them

Generation One

1. John “of Moor Corner”1 Morgan, b. c. 1730 in Reynoldston, Glamorgan, Wales, baptized 1730 in Reynoldston, Glamorgan, Wales, d. 1811 in Portyenon, Glamorgan, Wales, buried 17 Jun 1811 in Portyenon, Glamorgan, Wales, resided Moor Corner in Porteynon, Glamorgan, Wales.

I recently discovered a very good bet for John’s baptism. John Morgan, son of William, was baptised in 1730 (no date) in Reynoldston, Glamorgan. Reynoldston makes sense as a location, especially since John married Sarah Gammon and the Gammons were mostly from the Scurlage area. John and Sarah named multiple sons William which makes sense if that was his father’s name. Also, in the early 1800’s, John and Sarah’s son William was living in Reynoldston. John Morgan of Reynoldston’s siblings were Anne Morgan bp 1728 and Elinor Morgan, bp 1733.

Early Morgans listed in Porteynon parish registers include burial for Sagea Moran buried 5 May 1696. There is a burial for Anne relict of Rowland Morgan who was buried 11 Nov 1748. I had thought that Anne and Rowland were possible parents of John.

There is a burial for a Morgan Morgan, son of John, 8 Jul 1749, Porteynon. But that is too early for this family.
There is a burial for Sarah Morgan 23 Oct 1768. Could be daughter, first one named Sarah.

There is a marriage for William Morgan and Margaret Hoskin, both of Porteynon, married by Banns on 28 Oct 1781.

John Morgan married Sarah Gammon, 15 Mar 1757 in Porteynon, Glamorgan, Wales, b. 1714 in Porteynon, Glamorgan, Wales. Sarah: There is a burial record for a Sarah Morgan on 25 Apr 1812 in Penrice. Sarah may have been staying with her son, William of Penrice”.

In 1908 Charles was put in charge of the garden at Alsop House in connection with the college clubhouse in Middletown. Part of his duties were to give practical instructions in gardening to Wesleyan students. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2010, the historic Alsop House is a distinguished architectural monument of the pre-Civil War period. The lot was acquired in 1835 and the house was built between 1838-1840 by Richard Alsop IV, son of the poet and “Hartford wit,” Richard Alsop III. Originally built for Alsop’s widowed mother, Maria Pomeroy Alsop Dana, the house remained in the Alsop family (although not occupied by them for a number of years) until 1948. In that year, it was purchased by Wesleyan

In 1910 and 1920, Charles and Anne were living on thier own on Pike Place in Middletown.

Charles always claimed to be “direct descendent” of Willem Kieft, Governor of New Amsterdam. (Newspaper clipping). This has yet to be proven. I have not even found any record of Willem having children before he drowned in 1636. There are Kiefts in public records in Devon as early as the 1620’s.
