MORGAN FAMILY

A presentation by Susan King and Shirley Clough

 

 

Isaac and Ann Morgan photo created by John Doxey from an original dated 1935

 

 

The Morgan family are a well known family name in the area, in particular is one Lol Morgan who was famous as a Rotherham United player, Lol is related to the family on this page as the Grandson of Moses Morgan.

The families of Isaac and Moses Morgan originated in Wales, like many other Welsh Miners they came to the Rotherham area to work in the local mines.  Isaac and Moses eventually worked at Silverwood, both men became involved in the local community as will be seen.
Lets go back to 1881 where we find the youngsters Isaac and Moses living with their parents

After his marriage around 1877 Isaac moved to Tyldesley Lancashire where he presumably worked at a local mine there for approximately nine years.
By 1900 Isaac and Ann his wife  with a family are found in Catcliffe Rotherham, and on the 1901 census he and his family are listed as

Living with Isaac is his younger brother Thomas wrongly listed as born in Tyldesley Lancashire.

Later the family moved to Canklow and finally arriving in Thrybergh, Isaac  worked as a miner at Treeton then Silverwood Collieries. Between 1907-1913. Isaac whilst at Canklow became a West Ward representative upon the Rotherham Board of Guardians, he also did a lot of good work for the workhouse in his day but he never seems to be mentioned in any of the histories. He was at sometime a union representative but it is not known at present if he continued to be one when he worked at Silverwood.  Isaac was often blacklisted because of his fight for better working conditions. During his time at Thrybergh he was an active member of the ex-Wesleyan Church at Whinney Hill.


Moses Morgan the brother of Isaac is listed in August 1919 age 49 living at 35 Kelvin St. Dalton and signing on at Silverwood as a Collier, this was a month when some 700 plus men signed on at the mine.
Moses like his brother became involved with the Whinney Hill Methodist Church.

I have noted another family member who has been employed at Silverwood.
Ernest William Morgan (brother of Susan's mother, Kathleen) appears to have signed on as a driver in January, 1926 & Apr, 1928.
Ernest & his siblings was brought up by Isaac & Ann after their mother died after Kathleen's birth. Ernest died New Year's Eve, 2004 aged 92 years.
