'Morley03'Index links to: Lead / Letter
Families covered: Morley of Glynd, Morley of Morley (Lancashire)
[The original Morley03 was renamed Morley04 on 23.10.13.]

                               
Berry shows the arms of the following family as "Sa. three leopard's faces or, jesant a fleur-de-lis ar." which suggests that it was not connected to the early Lords Morley shown on Morley01 (but may be to the later family of Suffolk/Sussex shown in the lower section of that page). BLG1886 (Morley of Marrick Place), which covers later Morleys of Wennington, starts with the same 2 generations as our Main Sources for this section.
