James MORWICK was born on Sep 26, 1753, in Stromness (Orkney Islands), son of Marjory MELL and James MORWICK SR (b-1731).  This James married an Ann MAINLAND of unknown origins, most likely from the Orkneys as well.


**Note: This information was found in the Miller Family Tree on Ancestry.ca and there is no evidence to support him as being the same James MORWICK who is the subject of this narrative. However, his birth date and place of birth does suggest a remote possibility.

 

There is precious little information available about the Elder James MORWICK of this narrative, other than what we can glean from records regarding his children who are somewhat better documented.
