Any Mortifees?

Hello All
I think this new page is here at my request! I'd love to make contact with any Mortifees, their descendants or any interested parties.
I have been told the family comes from the Staple Fitzpaine/Hatch Beauchamp area of Somerset (England), and that it originates from one particular field (Martin's Field - Martify - Mortify - Mortifee). I am descended from Martha Mortifee, born 1835, and have a lot of other genealogy on the family.
There are some famous Mortifees; the late William Somerset ("Bill") Mortifee was an MP in South Africa, and his daughter Ann is a singer/songwriter in Canada.
Hoping to hear from somebody!
