The name Marmora always evokes memories of my grandmother and her brother swapping stories of family. My grandmother's great-great grandfather, William Gladney (born 1780 on Lord Carew's estate in Wexford, Ireland) came to Marmora, according to family notes, in 1842. He brought his wife, Elizabeth Hampton, followed by their daughter Sarah and her husband John Meath, daughter Mary Ann and her husband Joseph Reid, daughter Jane and her husband Daniel Minchin (later Mrs. Richard Laycock also) and son Edward Gladney, who married Ruth Meath. William was a miller on Lord Carew's estate and probably continued with that occupation in Marmora, possibly at Pearce's Mill. He and his wife died within months of each other in 1850-1 while their children prospered and lived for many years in Marmora. There are still descendants of this family there now.
