Hello Joyce,

I haven't quite worked out all the relationships but I'm pretty sure the parents of the children on the 1841 census are Andrew Bennett MORGAN and Jane or Ann MARSHALL.

A search on the IGI shows a marriage between Jane Marshall and Andrew Bennett Morgan on 8th April 1835.

A parent search shows no children.

But a parent search of Ann MARSHALL and Andrew MORGAN gives you the following:
CATHRINE MURRAY MORGAN - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 21 JAN 1844 South Leith, Midlothian, Scotland

2. JOAN COWAN MORGAN - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 06 FEB 1842 South Leith, Midlothian, Scotland

3. WILLIAM MARSHALL MORGAN - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Male Birth: 26 NOV 1837 South Leith, Midlothian, Scotland

4. ANDREW MORGAN - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Male Christening: 12 DEC 1839 South Leith, Midlothian, Scotland

The boys fit exactly with the census.

There is also marriage between a Euphemia MARSHALL and Joseph WILLIAMSON in 1820 but this seems a bit early for the Euphemia on the census.

I've seen all the children on the 1881 census.

Which one was your grandfather?

Andrew B Morgan, age 31
Midleham - probably mis-spelling/mis-pronunciation of Midlothian [place of birth] goes along with his birth in Leith
sevant - probably should read servant [occupation]
St Edmond the King - a parish in London [place of residnece at the time of the census]

All the best,

Andrew Paterson

Joyce

Quick question. On your original post, your profile said that your location was 'Neterlandes'. Is this the way you say name of your country? If so, why did you change it to English? Original looked so good!
