No reply on this as yet. Looks like Lorraine may no longer be on the site.

Hi Lorraine - I do some research into Morby families and have a tree for Julia Gully who married John William Morby in Bristol in 1888. Both Mary Ann and John H have the surname Burrows. I found this information on Ancestry

"The following information was found on a message board "Curious Fox" covering the South Petherton district. Julia Gully had two children Mary Ann born 1884 in Banbury Oxford, the fathers name was given as Charles Burrows occupation Engine Driver, mother Julia Burrows nee Gully, a second child Henry John was born 1887 in Fareham again the father is given as Charles Burrows Engine Driver mother Julia Burrows nee Gully. Despite extensive research a marriage between Julia and John Burrows cannot be verified. Julia married John Morby in 1888, her status was shown as spinster. "

Hope this is of some use.
