Every family has at least one story, whether it's of success or whether it's something that descendants
would prefer to keep hidden. In my case, the most entertaining characters seem to have all been members
of the Morris family of Aston and Yardley in Birmingham.

Warning: I do not normally use the GedCom format so these files have been constructed using a program
I've written in Visual Basic. I cannot guarantee that the files are compatible with any other application - if you wish to import the data
into your own family history program then I recommend that you back up your data before attempting to use any of these files.
The files do not contain census entries since the GEDCOM standard (version 5.5) does not give sufficient
information on the structure of these entries.

There are a number of puzzles which I have so far been unable to solve.
I would be extremely grateful if you are able to answer any of the following questions:
- The place, date and bride of the first marriage of
John Fuller of Buxhall, 1705-1776, who married Sarah ???, c.1706-1764, sometime in the 1720's.
- The baptisms of John Fuller of Buxhall's children.
The estaimated dates of birth have been calculated from marriage licences and monumental inscriptions.
- The baptism of William Fuller of Woolpit, c.1753-1792, whose
apprenticeship to Thomas Thurlow of Buxhall finished in 1772 and who married Mary Diggens in the 1780s.
There is a baptism of a William Fuller Robinson at
Ipswich, St. Peter and a marriage between a
William Fuller Robinson and Mary Diggins at Westminster, St. James Piccadilly but I have not yet
been able to prove/disprove that these events relate to William Fuller of Woolpit. These entries would,
however, explain the William Robinson named in
the will of John Fuller of Buxhall.
- The baptism of Richard Osborn of Nedging who
married Susan Pond in Buxhall in 1787.
- The baptism of Jacob Fuller of Stowmarket and Northfleet who,
according to his burial record, was born in 1774/5 but was possibly born a few years earlier.
Any other corrections or additional information would, of course, be gratefully received.
