My family history records include much about the involvement of Marris and related families in various wars. To start with, I have researched the Marris war-dead from WW1 and WW2, but hope to include other wars in due course.
Marris war-dead in World War 1
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission lists 10 Marris deaths in WW1. Click here for the details.
Marris war-dead in World War 2
The above War Graves Commission lists 8 Marris deaths in WW2. Click here for the details.
In due course, I hope to include the involvement of Marris and related families in earlier wars, viz:
- A Marris who fought at the Battle of Crécy on 26 August 1346.
- Col. John Marris who seized Pontefract Castle on 3 June 1648 on behalf of King Charles the Martyr (the executed King Charles 1)
- Various exploits of the Colquhoun Family (my great * 3 g/mother was descended from them)
- A Marris ancestor who fought alongside William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066.
