Born 1865 and died 1932

Have you done any research to show names of his parents and any possible siblings then you should try a search on the trees on this site


patchem Report 22 Apr 2012 15:09

Have you looked to see who else has him in their tree on here?

if they had two children, and one died, presumably the first was born before Alfred, and after 1906. Cant spot it

Gail Report 24 Apr 2012 08:24

Thank you so much for this help! I will follow up on all of it.

Yes, HCG Morice had four children.

Mary Valentine B 1908 D 1909.
John Alfred born 1910,
Peter James 1911-1942,
Michael Andrew, my grandfather, 1913 -1944.

Both Michael and Peter died in the war. Peter James was a poet who taught at a college in Dublin. Apparently he married an Irish girl, but I have no other trail. I would llike to know the name of his wife and if he had any children?

John Alfred married a Margaret Shelagh (Shelagh being the middle name) but I do not have her last name. They lived in Indian off and on (he was a Major in the Indian Amry and also lived there before the war as a tea planter). They had three children: Clare, Michael, and Valentine, who are possibly living but I can not pin down a trail to find any of them.

Again, thanks so much for all your responses,


Penny Report 24 Apr 2012 08:31

He is listed under 'emergency 'commisions


did they marry in india?
were the children born in india?

do you suppose the children are still in India?


Gail Report 24 Apr 2012 08:55

I think two of the children were at least born in England as I see them at a young age on a passanger list to Bombay. I can't image that they are still there? I was given a death date for John Alfred of 1970 in England. However, I am not sure if this is the same John Alfred (apparently there might be two of them?).

The birth dates of the children (which I think are correct): Clare Margaret 1941, Michael John 1944, Valentine Mary Rose 1948. They would be my mother's cousins. My mother is no longer alive, so she can not provide any details.


patchem Report 24 Apr 2012 18:11
