Welcome to the Morgan web site

The site is largely devoted to family history, ancestry and historical documents associated with our family trees. This is an entirely non-commercial site run for personal interest.


To mark the centenary of the passing of legislation to give women the vote, we have put together some of the surviving documents belonging to Ethel Mary Downing of Elm Lodge, Hagley who was for a time secretary of the non militant Stourbridge NUWSS in 1913-14. After the outbreak of hostilities in Aug 1914 she worked as a nurse and would have still been working with the war effort in Ilkeston Derbyshire when the act granting the vote was finally passed on 6 Feb 1918

Stourbridge NUWSS headed paper, 1913
