Morton/ McGuiness/Kane/Wilson Families
« on: Wednesday 26 July 17 03:27 BST (UK) »
Looking for any information on the children of Thomas Morton of Tynan, County Armagh, born about 1800-1811. His father was Thomas Morton (farmer) and mother, Mary Kane (from Summerhill near Killylea).

Thomas Morton of Tynan married:
1. Sarah McGuiness
2. G Wilson.
There was a son William Morton.
I would love to find anything on my family.
Thanking you.

Hello I am searching for a william Morton for my family tree, I have no idea what date he was born or even where he lived but he had a son that was born in 1987 called James Morton. James Morton was my great great grandad and he married my great great grandmother in 1912 in Newcastle upon Tyne. I only knew of his father's name yesterday as the marriage certificate came and states his father was William Morton who's occupation was a farmer. I have been searching for william Morton's in and around Newcastle but have had no luck finding one with occupation farmer.. so I'm now thinking he came from someplace else.

As you don't give his religion which would cut down on results, these are on 1901 Census for James

I presume this is his marriage
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:26HZ-3K8

does he give an occupation and address on his marriage with a view to looking for him on 1911 census for place of birth

Hi yes that's the marriage. He was living at 92 stone street newcastle. And he was a miner. His marriage was April 1912 and he was 24 years old, His father william Morton was a farmer but can't find a william Morton as a farmer anywhere.
