Queens; though George's relation to them is not established.[723] It was said, "Mortons were officers of Oliver Cromwell's body-guard and went from England to Ireland during his Regency and became possessed of an estate in Co. Carlow, adjoining Co. Wicklow. This estate has on it a large castle called Clanmore [sic]," referring to Clonmore.[724] He and Widow (--?--) (--?--) Morton were likely leasing Lugduff (a portion of Rosbane) in 1714 at Kilcommon parish, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[725] George and his wife (later Widow Morton) had four sons and one daughter: Francis (1714-1780); and likely James (d. 1781).[726] He and Widow (--?--) (--?--) Morton lived in Dec 1714 at Tinahely, Co.

She and George Morton were likely leasing Lugduff (a portion of Rosbane) in 1714 at Kilcommon parish, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[725] George and his wife (later Widow Morton) had four sons and one daughter: Francis (1714-1780); and likely James (d. 1781).[726] She and George Morton lived in Dec 1714 at Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[727],[728] She was leasing Lugduff, (part of Rosbane) where she had four tenants, plus land in Coolross and Tinahely. That lease expired 1735. It was said by the surveyor, "The above farm of Coolrus and Tinahely is one of the poorest towns in Ireland mostly inhabited by beggars, whores and rogues. It is impossible to put any valuation upon that town or farm. There is no trade in the town and the land about it is coarse and barren yet the town is well situated for fire and water, and capable to be improved were there any trade brought to the town" in 1730 at Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.[732],[733] She appeared on the census of 1730 at Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Ireland; where Widow Morton had 4 sons and 1 daughter.[734]
