Guyon Morrison, p. 658






GUYON MORRISON. The Morrisons of the Upper Chartiers Valley trace their ancestry to Guyon (or Gavin) Morrison, who removed from East Nottingham, in Chester county, Penn., and settled on a tract of land on the waters of Chartiers creek, within the limits of Chartiers township, in Washington County, of the same State, prior to the war of the Revolution. By comparison of data, from traditions and records, it is reasonably certain that Guyon Morrison came from Northern Ireland to Delaware Bay with the great Scotch- Irish migration of the year 1729. He was born, probably in Londonderry, about the year 1705. His ancestors, doubtless, had come with the influx of Presbyterians from Scotland, prior to the famous siege of that place in 1689. The family name "Morrison" had belonged to a clan in Scotland from an early period.

In this country, as far as known, the earliest mention of the name of Guyon Morrison is found in the taxable lists of East Nottingham, Chester Co., Penn., for the year 1730. In the lists referred to, his name appears in the class of unmarried men; in the lists for the year 1734 his name appears in the class of householders or married men, from which fact we infer that his marriage had taken place in the year 1733. His name recurs, in the East Nottingham lists, continuously until the year 1770, after which date it disappears from the lists. The official records of Chester county show that in December, 1770, Guyon Morrison disposed of his property in Chester county, and, as his name is not found there on records of a later date, it is certain that he must have removed from that county in the year 1771. Some records recently found in Washington County show that in the year 1776 the Morrisons had been settled on the waters of a tributary of Chartiers creek, for a sufficient length of time to give to the stream the name of "Morrison's run." In fact, the name "Morrison's run" became the official designation of the stream, as will be learned by reference to the Patent records of the Pennsylvania Land Office. The family traditions likewise confirm the conclusion that the Morrisons, on their removal from Chester county in the year 1771, came directly to the place of their settlement in the Upper Chartiers Valley. Soon after Guyon Morrison had settled on Chartiers, this entire region passed under the control of the colony of Virginia. For many years he held the tract on which he had settled, under the original "tomahawk" right. He lived, however, to witness the re- establishment of the authority of Pennsylvania, and the creation of the county of Washington. Of the tract on which he settled, the larger portion still remains in the possession of descendants bearing the same name, having passed by inheritance until it is now, after a lapse of 120 years, in the hands of his great-grandchildren.



In the will of Guyon Morrison, which was made on August 28, 1782, his son John and Hon. Matthew Ritchie were named as executors. This well was entered for record on July 2, 1783. From the date of the entrance of the will for record it is reasonably certain that the death of Guyon Morrison occurred in June, 1783. Of the history of his wife nothing is known. There is reason to believe that her maiden name was Margaret Wilson. From the fact that her name is not found in the conveyance of the Morrison property, made in December 1770, it seems probable that her death had occurred prior to that time. They had issue: William, Elizabeth, John, Jane, Margaret, Francis, Guyon, Jr., and James.



(1) William, eldest of the family of Guyon Morrison, Sr., was born probably in 1735. About the year 1760 he married Ann ____, and resided for a time in Chester County.
