Death of Alexander Gordon Morison

Post by Alexander » Fri Jan 31, 2014 12:28 pm

Hello All,

I am placing this here rather than in Group H to which it mainly relates as I think it will be of general interest to everyone.

A few years a go we approached Lord Morison to ask if he would participate in our DNA program but, unfortunately, he declined the offer. This is particularly sad because it could have helped a lot to pinpoint the Morrisons of Aberdeenshire and Banffshire. Although the article is dated today he appears to have died a year ago and his obituary can be read at ... on-morison

I hope the link works.

Thanks for posting, Alex. I had not heard the news. It's an amazing story of how he came to be Baron of Frendraught. Here is a link that worked for me... ... -1-2818627

"The family received an unexpected visit around 1936 from a Scottish solicitor who gave the news that he may be in line to inherit some land in Scotland, which was news to him as his parents had never mentioned the UK or Scotland."
