48. Francis4 MORTON (Sr.) (child of James, #96);[231] born 8 May 1790;[232] married Elizabeth Ann Barrett (see #49) before 1820;[233],[234] died "age 78" 11 Jan 1869 at Co. Wicklow, Ireland, at age 78;[232],[235] buried at Shillelagh churchyard, Shillelagh, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, His gravestone: "In memory of Francis Morton of Woodmount only son of the late Captain James Morton of Tinahely."[236]

He may have lived in 1824 at Lugduff, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[237],[238] He may have been the property representative at Glan Phillipeen townland, immediately west of Tinahely Town. He was listed there in the Tithe Applotment of April 1826, but without any acreage.[239] Sir James Gowan (1815-1909) said he had "a vague recollection of seeing 'Frank Morton of Woodmount' at my father's house" when he was a boy in Ireland (the 1820's). His father "had a warm regard for him, and used to tell many stories of the loyalty and gallantry of the Morton family in perilous times, and of two of them, yeomanry captains, being killed in the Irish rebellion", possibly referring to the Battle of Ballyraheen in July, 1798, about 2 kilometres north-west of Woodmount.[240] (Woodmount is 2.5 km south-west of Tinahely Town, in the townland of Tomnafinnoge, Carnew Parish).[241] Francis was cited on a deed with Dr. Francis Henry Morton of Forttown, 1827, where it appears he was extending a lease to farms in Tinahely, Glenphilipeen, and Tomnafinogue which were previously leased in 1804, 1801, 1775 and 1770.[242] He lived in 1833 at Tomnafinnoge, Carnew Parish, Co. Wicklow, Ireland; having at 87 acres. Tomnafinnogue townland contained Woodmount farm.[243] He lived in 1853 at Tomnafinnoge, Barony of Balinacor South, Co. Wicklow, Ireland; leasing 271 acres from Earl Fitzwilliam, and in turn, subleasing out 142 acres.[244],[245]

Children of Francis4 Morton (Sr.) and Elizabeth Ann Barrett (see #49) were as follows:

  • i. James3 Morton;[246] born 30 Aug 1820 at Kilcommon Parish, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland;[247] he may have married Lydia May (--?--) circa 1850.[248]

    Between 1851 and 1853, James Morton lived at Greenhall, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[249],[250] Brother George's will provided $1000 each for James' daughters, but did not name who or how many there were. The will, published in 1895, stated that James then lived in Belfast, Ireland.[251]

  • ii. George Dean Morton; born 31 Aug 1822 at Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland;[252] married Cornelia Rosabella Laughton, daughter of William Laughton Esquire and Maria Roe, 19 Sep 1854 at Trinity Church, Bradford, Simcoe Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); both of Holland Landing, once also known as St. Alban's;[253],[254] died from internal gout of 17 days 17 Feb 1895 at 563 Church Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at age 72;[255],[256] buried 20 Feb 1895 at (his) Dr. Morton's Vault, Christ Church, Holland Landing, York Co., Ontario, Canada, "Funeral will leave residence (563 Church St., Toronto) at 11 o'clock on Wednesday, the 20th, via Union station, for place of interment at Holland Landing."[257]

    He emigrated in 1848 to Holland Landing, York Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[258] Upon arriving in Holland Landing, George took up the practice of the retiring Dr. Ardagh.[259] He and Cornelia Rosabella Laughton lived in 1856 at Bradford, Simcoe Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[260] During his time in Bradford, George occupied the positions of reeve of Bradford, trustee of the High School, member of the Simcoe County Council and county coroner. He was a member of the Conservative party, was a staunch Orangeman and master of the Bradford and Holland Landing Orange Lodges.[259] In 1860, George purchased lot 109 in the 1st Concession East, township of East Gwillimbury, from Frederick Robinson, son of the famous settler Peter Robinson. Lot 110, immediately north, belonged to George's father-in-law William Laughton. On Laughton's death in 1863, it was transferred to George's sister-in-law Arabella, then to his wife Cornelia by 1868. The combined lands were named Woodmount after George's father's farm at Tomnafinnoge, near Tinahely, Co. Wicklow. At Woodmount, George trained his winning race horses.[261],[259] He and Cornelia Rosabella Laughton appeared on the census of 1861 at Bradford, Simcoe Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); where they lived in a 1½-story brick house, had one servant, and several farm animals, including 4 horses and 4 carriages on 1 acre of land. Supposed daughter Henrietta (8) was present.[262] George's horse Brunette won the 1864 Queen's Plate Stakes in Guelph, Canada West.[263] George advertised in the local paper: "Drs. Morton & McCarthy, Physicians, Surgeons & Accouchers, Bradford, C.W; Geo. D. Morton, M.D. ¦ J.L.G. McCarthy, M.D."[264] He and Cornelia Rosabella Laughton appeared on the census of 1871 at Bradford, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada; but Henrietta was no longer present.[265] He and Cornelia Rosabella Laughton appeared on the census of 1881 at Bradford, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada; where nephew Ernest (10) was also present. Aunt Nancy later remarked that Ernest was adopted by his Uncle George.[266],[267] In 1881, George retired from practice and he and Cornie moved to Church Street in Toronto. George sold half of Woodmount farm to Silas Wright. The other half he retained for his brother Francis who had just immigrated to Canada with his family the year before.[110],[259] George was recorded as the director of the Standard Bank in Bradford in 1891.[268] He and Cornelia Rosabella Laughton appeared on the census of 1891 at 563 Church St., Toronto, York Co., Ontario, Canada; where George (69, a physician), Cornelia (58), William (28, nephew), Ernest (19, nephew) and two domestics were present.[269] In March 1895, George's will was published. His estate totalled nearly $89,000, and was distributed widely among his family. The consideration given to the distributions reveals George's assessment of his inheritors. Women and children received cash: $1000 for the sisters and nieces and $2000 for the younger nephews. Nephews over age 20 received gifts one might assume were appropriate to their abilities or needs. Reginald the doctor received medical books and tools. William E.D.B. the farmer (Francis"s son) received 320 acres of farm land. Both Anglican Churches in Bradford and Holland Landing received $200. A plaque in Christ Church is in his name. A few items do stand out: the daughters of brother James in Ireland obtained $1000 each, but the daughters of William in Canada got nothing. Brother Edward received the remainder of George"s estate, including several properties, but brother Francis got nothing (the land he lived on, Woodmount Farm, went to his son, William E.D.B.). Nephew Edward was given $2000 cash while George was given $1000 cash and $1000 stock in a plough company. George"s will is specific and calculated. It"s the only way we might understand how he saw his family: who he liked, trusted and approved of, and from whom he expected little gratitude or promise.[251]

  • iii. William Nassau Morton;[270] born 3 Jun 1824 at Kilcommon Parish, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland;[271] married Ann Eliza Morton, daughter of John Morton and Ann Eliza Cumine, 1853 at Victoria, Australia;[272],[273] married Charlotte Elizabeth Young 14 Dec 1872 at St. Jude's Church, Carlton, Victoria, Australia; by the Rev.

She could have been in her late eighties then.[291] She and Genevieve Catherine Morton lived in 1916 at Co. Wicklow, Ireland; possibly in Coolboy town, Coolrus, or Coolroe.[292],[293]

    He emigrated in 1856 to Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); at about which time he attended University of Toronto.[304],[305] He was graduated in 1860 at University of Toronto, Toronto, York Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); with a MB (Medicinae Baccalaureus) or Bachelor of Medicine.[306] He lived in 1862 at Fraser's Hotel, Barrie, Simcoe Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); taking up the practice of the late Dr. Archibald Pass.[307] Edward's brother George, also a physician, lived in Bradford, and here he met George's sister-in-law, Arabella.[308] He lived after 1863 at Barrie, Simcoe Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); in a house set back from the street, where the Bothwell Block was later built.[309] He appeared on the census of 1871 at Bradford, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada; where William (7), Francis (5) and Reginald (3) are present.[310] At some point Edward bought a farm in Innisfil County, and bred Shorthorn cattle. The farm was named Clonmore.[311] In 1876, Edward Deane Morton lived at 158 Dunlop St., Barrie, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada, "The bright buff-coloured brick of this Victorian era home is clean, refreshing contrast to the generally darker-toned brick of the city. The house was built in 1875-76 by Dr. E.D. Morton. Facing the garden is a most inviting veranda with very attractive woodwork as complement. The fine black walnut trees in the yard (as elsewhere in Barrie) are said to be descendants of trees brought by the Lount family from Pennsylvania around 1850."[312] He and Arabella Anna Laughton appeared on the census of 1881 at Barrie, Simcoe Co., Ontario, Canada; where William (17), George (Francis George?)

You're the only one who is amounting to anything.'"

    [318] Edward's estate probate was applied for by Annie May Morton, Edward's second wife.

He shared this duty with George Shegog, and they certified their results on 23 Nov 1833.[330] He lived in 1833 at Clones Parish, Ireland; at his marriage to Anne Fitzgerald, although it is unclear whether he lived at Annaghilly North townland (Co. Fermanagh, Barony of Clankelly) or Annaghkilly townland (Co. Monaghan, Barony of Dartree). Michael may have possessed both properties in his lifetime. G. Elliott was also assessed tithes for 9 acres in Annaghilly/Annaghkilly.[331],[332],[333],[334] Michael was assessed tithes for 'Anahilly', Co. Fermanagh (Manor of Shanack) 58 and 44 acres, and Drumard in Co. Monaghan in 1833, 46 acres. He is recorded as W. Michl Elliott, and he was the tithe assessor.[335] He and George Elliott were associated in 1850; as a stone in St. Tighernach's church yard was inscribed "Erected by W.M. Elliott of Clones for his posterity, Jany 1850". Later, a plaque was added reading "The family burial place of George Elliott, Clonfard, 1878."[336] He and William Elliott were associated in 1861; as both had ties to Agharoosky townland (William in 1833, Michael in 1861).[337],[338] In Griffith's Valuation of Monaghan 1861, Michael was a rate-payer for the following properties in Clones Parish, Co.

The name Drumard relates to the Gaelic for 'high ridge.'[339],[341],[342],[343] On Drumard townland, in the field across the road from the main house, lies the ruins of Saint Eachaidh's Church.[344] A map of the Drumard townland was drawn up by P.
