Note on Husband: Thomas MORLEY

Thomas Morley married three times. The second of his wives was Maria Whitehead who he married in Bridgham in 1770. He was a widower and she was a widow. The marriage was witnessed by Joseph Corben. Thomas & Maria subsequently went on to have three sons, one named Joseph Corben Morley & one named Corben Morley. On this basis I have made an educated guess that Maria Whitehead (widow) is Maria Corben daughter of John Corben & Maria Andrews and sister of Joseph Corben the witness. I rarely find a case of a surname being used as a christian name unless there is a family connection and so assume that Joseph Corben Morley & Corben Morley must be genetically related to the Corbens. Unfortunately I cannot find a marriage of Maria Corben to a Whitehead, nor can I find a death of a male Whitehead around the time/area I would expect prior to Maria's marriage to Thomas. However, I think it is a good guess and that she is a likely candidate for the mother of Joseph Corben Morley & Corben Morley.
