MORROW Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Morrow, Morrowe, and Marrow, whilst there are several theories as to the origin of this surname, the facts speak for themselves. It is English, locational, and although well recorded in Ireland it is not of Irish origins. It has been claimed that some of the Irish clan Mac Murrough from Wexford have changed their name to Morrow, and this may be so, but it is also true that many English settlers called Morrow were also recorded in the same region. The famous Victorian etymologist Canon Charles Bardsley claimed that the name originated from a "lost" parish called Morrowe, near Wisbeach, in Lincolnshire, and this is confirmed by the Parish lists of the 17th century.
