William was of Oxford, was granted lot 21, back in the late 1790's. Oxford's heritage grp is disbaned. Does anyone know about him and if he had any childern, as well as if any lived in Springhill. is there any place to go to find out any information on this. We plan to vist Springhill and Oxford, some time next month. We belive we are descentants of both towns.

Bruce,       Time frame for this is late 1790's into 1840's
                Are any of the Morrel's listed in the area related to him.

Hi;
I found that a William Morell is recorded as an adult resident of Amherst township in the 1785 Cumberland County census return ,as was Thomas Merrill;A William Morell was granted land ca.1785 in the so-called "Yorkshire Grant"on the River philip in Cumberland County,in what was the district of Maccan It seems fairly certain that the surname was Morell not Merrill ;William was likely one of the Yorkshire immigrants of the early 1770's,since ,of the 25 grantees of the Yorkshire Grant ,some 16 are known to  have been Yorkshiremen & only one is known not to have been.I have 67 pages of data on Thomas & Nathan Merrill.If you would like to have a copy let me know? i am at Pugwash Historical Society on Fridays at the old train station,from 9.30 till 12.& from 2 to 4.Cathy
