(Ab.) CAPTAIN HERMAN B. MORRIS, OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, NORTH AMERICA, OB. 1795.
Not improbably a member of the family of Morris, of Keldgate Gate, Yorkshire; the elder branches of which, on the breaking out of the second American war, lost their hereditary property in New England. The founder of this family in the New World, appears to have been Captain Lewis Morris, a servant of the Providence Island Company, in 1633.
In 1652, when Prince Rupert was threatening the British colonies, the Governor of Barbadoes recommends to the Council of State the appointment to the command of a squadron, to oppose him, " Colonel Lewis Morris, whose personal valour at Scilly was taken notice of."

This family appears to have been of Scottish origin, probably from Peffermyln, near Edinburgh, of which Alexander Edgar was a subscriber to the Darien scheme. On the failure of the latter several of those emigrants settled in Jamaica. Amongst the refugees were Colonel Blair, Colonel Dowdell, who had served under William III., at the Boyne, and Colonels Guthrie and Campbell, &c.
See "An Account of the Sirname Edgar." Hotten, London, 1873.
KOSIUSKO TERRELL, SON OF WILLIAM AND MARY TERRELL, OF THE CITY OF BRISTOL, ENGLAND, OB. 1821.
Of the origin of this family in the West Indies, little is known. A Nicholas Terril occurs in the list of officers and soldiers engaged in the American Expedition of 1665-6.(Cal. S. P., Col. S.)
Usher Tyrrell, who had been expelled the Assembly, by Governor Beeston, was re--elected Member for St. James' Parish, in 1700.
(Ab.) ALEXANDER MC CARTHY, ESQ, AN OFFICER IN THE .... REGIMENT, OB. 1820.
SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF JOHN HODGES, ESQ., WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE, THE 27th OF FEB., 1787, AGED 53 YEARS.
The name of Hodges is frequently met with in the earlier history of our West India colonies.
In 1690, Anthony Hodges was Lieutenant Governor of Montserrat ; and about the same period, there was an Anthony Hedges, judge of the Admiralty Court. The name is found also in connection with warlike expeditions from the Island of Nevis.
The Hodges' of Jamaica, appear to have descended from Francis Hodges, Secretary of Nova Scotia, who became Treasurer of the former island in the time of Charles II., where he may have acquired estates named Acadia, and Luana, in the parish of St. Elizabeth. This gentleman was probably related to the Rev. Dr. Hedges, Chaplain to the House of Lords, at the Restoration.
A writer in " Notes and Queries," seems to be of opinion, that the family in question sprang from Sir Nathaniel Hedges, of Middlesex.
Of the same family was, probably, Sir W. Hodges, created a Baronet in 1697, but his line became extinct on the death of Sir Joseph Hodges, in 1722.
Nathaniel Hodges, an eminent physician, and son of Dr. Thomas Hodges, Dean of Hereford, distinguished himself in his professional capacity, during the Great Plague of London. He was author of a work intitled "Loimologia" but getting into difficulties, he died in Ludgate prison, in 1684.
The will of Joseph Hodges (1718, I. S. Off. Jamaica), of St. Elizabeth, tends to throw some light on this subject. He mentions his sons Nathaniel and Joseph, and his daughter Bonella, so named after her mother. The subsequent letters of administration of Andreise Joseph Hodges, brother of Nathaniel Hodges, show that he was then lately of Eaton, in Berks., of the Inner Temple, and of Lacovia plantation, Jamaica. In this document (entered Sept. 22, 1733) is mentioned, among other relatives, his cousin John Hodges, progenitor of Hodges of Maxfield, Member of Assembly in 1795.*
There are many other wills of Hodges' and Blakes, bearing on the family connections, which are interesting in a genealogical point of view; while the " Renunciation" of John Hodges, of Maxfield (whose first wife was Anne Blake), of his executorship, under the will of Richard Haughton James (1781), grandson of Samuel Williams Haughton, by his wife, Margaret Bonella, daughter of William and Elizabeth Blake, still further elucidates a connection of which present limits forbid a lengthier discussion. This John Hodges was a cousin of Bonella Hodges, who married the father of the first Lord Penrhyn; his father, Captain John Hodges, having been the son of Thomas Hodges, uncle of Joseph the father of Bonella.
See General Notes. Also, M. I. of Lt.-Col. B. Andreiss, of Lacovia, ob. 1710.
TO THE MEMORY OF THE SEVEN BELOVED CHILDREN AND ONE GRANDCHILD OF THE REVD. WM. FRASER, A.M, RECTOR OF THIS PARISH, AND ELIZABETH LUCY, HIS WIFE. THIS WAS ERECTED BY HIM IN THE EIGHTIETH YEAR OF HIS AGE, 1843.
The Rev. William Fraser, Rector of Trelawney, second son of Francis Fraser, Esquire of Findrack, co. Aberdeen, was born at Findrack, DEC. 22d, 1763, and died at Falmouth, Jamaica, April 1st, 1844. He was educated at Aberdeen, and subsequently at Oxford. He married Elizabeth Lucy, daughter of .... James, of Jamaica. (See Notice of the family of James.)
The family of Findrack show a descent from Sir Alexr. Fraser of Durris, Lord High Chamberlain of Scotland, in the reign of King Robert the Bruce. The Revd. W. Fraser's mother was, Henrietta, daughter of William Baird of Auchmedden, Chief of that name, and great granddaughter of Lady Katherine Hay, daughter of George, 2d Earl of Kinnoull, through whom the family of Findrack represents the heirs of line of George, 1st Earl of Kinnoull, and as such, the dormant Viscounty of Dupplin, of date 4th May, 1627. (See Burke's "Peerage," voce Kinnoull: "Landed Gentry v. Fraser;" and "An Account of the Family of Baird" Edinb. 1856.)
His son and heir, Robert Francklin Hodges, married a daughter of Chief justice John Lewis. There was a connection also with the Barretts and Moultons. C. J. John Lewis was a relative of M. G. Lewis.

(Ab.) MISS GRACE THARP, DAUGHTER OF CAPTAIN JOHN THARP, MARINER, AND MARGARET THARP, HIS WIFE, OB. 1796.
The family of Tharp, or Tharpe, was of considerable local distinction. (See Burke's "Landed Gentry.")
William Tharpe, of Tap River Estate, (eldest son of Joseph Tharpe, of Bachelor Hall, first settler of the name, in Jamaica,) married Ann, daughter of Jonathan Haughton (from Barbados), by his second wife, Mary Dehany. Mary, the elder sister of Ann Haughton, married John Brissett, of Hampshire estate, also the first settler of his family in Jamaica.
(Ab.) JOHN THARP CHAMBERS, SON OF EDWARD CHAMBERS, ESQ, OB. 1795.
(Ab.) THE REVEREND GRIFFITH GRIFFITHS, RECTOR OF TRELAWNEY, OB. 1815.
(Ab.) DR. WILLIAM ELLIS, OF FENCHURCH STREET, LONDON, OB. 1802.
It does not appear whether Dr. Ellis was of the old Jamaica family, said by Roby, and others, to have been originally from Denbighshire, and which was founded by Captain John Ellis, an officer in the expedition under Venables, in 1655, and who was ancestor of the present Lord Howard de Walden, and Seaford.
There was also a Colonel Gershom, Gerthon, or Gershon Ely, or Elys. He represented the parishes of St. Mary, St. James, St. Thomas in the Vale, and St. Ann (in which latter he died, in 1738) from 17 11 to 1737. He seems to have possessed much local influence, and it is recorded that, at his marriage with Mary Willis [10 June, 1712], his Excellency my Lord Archibald Hamilton," was present.
These names, Ellis and Elys, may possibly have been one and the same family, hence the introduction of this note.
(Ab.) JOHN JAMES LEAMY, OB. APRIL 2, 1781 AND, MARY JAMES LEAMY, OB. FEBRUARY 19, 1784 THE CHILDREN OF JOHN HODGES, BY HIS WIFE, MARY ANNE.

The above were the grandchildren of John Hodges, of Maxfield (see ante), and appear to have been named after the family of Houghton James.

ELIZABETH ANN, WHO LIETH HERE, OBIT. 25th FEBRUARY, 1788, AE.. 3 YEARS. AN AFFECTIONATE BROTHER PLACETH THIS TESTIMONY OF RESPECT.
The daughter of John Hodges, was probably the widow of a Mr. Bennett, when she married John Spence, as the latter name does not occur in the will of John Hodges of Maxfield, or in that of his son of the same name.

She was daughter of Col. R. Houghton, by his second wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Geo. Goodin. Mary, younger daughter of Colonel Richard Haughton, by his wife, Elizabeth Goodin,* married (29th March, 1743) Colonel John Reid, elder brother of the above.
Of the same family was Maj. Genl. Peter Reid, who married Elizabeth Barrett relict of Ezekiel Lawrence, of "The Spring " Estate. [Lawrence Pedigree.] Also, Maj.Genl. Thomas Reid, who married Elizabeth, daughter of James Lawrence, of Fairfield.
Goodin, erroneously spelled Goodwin and Godwin, in the pedigrees of Ricketts, Lawrence, &c. (See Burke's , "Landed Gentry," &c.) The two surnames are quite distinct.
