Lilias Morrison

Lilias' address and her husband's title 'Esquire' show they were high status people. It is unusual, and frustrating, that I have not been able to find out more about them. Lilias' first name and return to Edinburgh as a widow suggest she was Scottish. John's absence from official records suggests he was not a government official; he might have been a businessman. If any historians of Gibraltar or the Morrisons can shed any light, I'd love to hear from you.
