We Begin in Morpeth

     The first chapter of our family history takes us to Morpeth. On the first "Genealogy" page you will find links to some early history of our family in Morpeth and some photographs (taken by Trevor and Megan) of places associated with that Longstaff history. We have also very tentatively identified Jane Reay's parents as James Reay and Grace Stafford. Thomas Willis' parents were John Willis and Elizabeth Bigley and his grandparents as George Willis and Margaret Bigley.
