Genealogical notes

There are claims that this family has Norman origins:

We have not investigated these claims. Nor have we looked for English descendants in the vicinity of Morpeth. Perhaps this family of de Merlays contributed to the concentration of Marleys in Northeastern England. Or maybe this concentration instead took its name from Morley, County Durham.
