There are two distinct Hugh de Morvilles that tend to get combined into one. Hugh de Morville, who died in 1204, was one of the murderers of St. Thomas of Canterbury. He was most probably the son of Simon de Morville, who held the barony of Burgh-by-Sands, Cumberland, in right of his mother, Ada, daughter of William de Engaine. This Hugh married Helewise de Stuteville. He should be distinguished from Hugh de Morville (d. 1162) father of Richard de Morville (d. 1189), who married Beatrice de Beauchamp.

Morville-33 and Morville-6 do not represent the same person because: They appear to be father (33) and son (6).
