  • Notes 
    • "The burial place in Morpeth churchyard of the family of Marr was in the angle formed by the chancel and the south aisle. On one of the tombstones there may be traced the remains of an inscription which seems to read:
      ...William Marr, butcher, son of the above William Marr, died February 20, 1802, aged 69 years. Mary, daughter of the above John Marr, sen., died September 1, 1806, aged 28 years. Elizabeth, his daughter, wife to George Laidman, died 18 February, 1809, aged 23.... On another stone there is an inscription:
      To the memory of John Marr, tanner, who died February 7, 1791, aged 38 years. And of Barbara, his wife, who died April 8, 1793, aged 37 years. Likewise four of their children, viz., George, Barbara, William and Ann, who died young. Also Barbara, their daughter, who died 13 April, 1808, aged 17 years."

      Although the dates fit, it is not clear however whether John Marr the tanner was indeed the father of Elizabeth who married George Laidman.
