      Anthony Morris, founder of the American branch of the prominent Philadelphia family of the name, was born in Old Gravel Lane, Stepney, London, England, August 23, 1654, baptized August 25, 1654, at St. Dunstan's Church, Stepney. He was a son of Anthony Morris, mariner, or Welsh origin, who at the date of birth of his son Anthony was residing in Old Gravel Lane, Stepney, but later removed to Barbados, and was lost at sea when on his return voyage in 1655 or 1656. He was born about the year 1630, and probably was a son of another Anthony Morris, of Reading, Berkshire, born about 1600. He married Elizabeth Senior, who soon after her husband's death made a voyage to Barbados, in connection with the settlement of his estate, and died there in 1660. Anthony Morris spent his boyhood days in the city of London, and, prior to arriving at his majority, united himself with the Society of Friends, becoming a member of Savoy Meeting, in the Strand, which was connected with the Westminster Monthly Meeting. On 12mo. (February) 2, 1675-6, he declared intentions of marriage with Mary Jones belonging to the same Meeting and they were married 1mo. (March) 30, 1676. They continued to reside in London until near the close of the year 1682, and four children were born to them there, Susanna, Mary, and two who were named for the father, all of whom died there except the last.They embarked for the Delaware river in which they arrived in the latter part of February, 1682-3, and took up their home in Burlington, New Jersey. In the latter part of 1685, or early in 1686, he removed to Philadelphia and began his successful career as a merchant. Three more children were born by his first wife to him in America, John in Burlington, 2mo. 17, 1685, and Samuel and James in Philadelphia. His first wife died in Philadelphia, 8mo. (October) 3, 1688.
