The Last of the West Country Merchants - Christopher J. A. Morry

Your Price: $20.00
Part Number:77612

 The last of the West Country Merchants is a historical narrative which focuses on one family, the Morry’s, who originated in Devon, England and came to the Southern Shore of Newfoundland at the end of the 18th Century. The immigrant ancestor of that family, Matthew Morry, was a self-made man whose meteoric rise from ordinary Able-bodied Seaman, to Master Mariner, to ship owner and small –scale fish merchants and trader, came at a time when the larger West Country merchants, better known in the literature, had already made their fortunes from the lucrative Newfoundland cod fishery and retired in comfort to their provincial estates in England.
