I feel that he was a liverpool man but he may have come from timbuckto

Without a birthplace/birthyear - how would you know whether you had the right person if you found a baptism etc on FS?

If we assume he was a bachelor when he married Margaret and assume a birthyear in the 1760's - there is this entry on FS

Name    Samuel Morton
Gender    Male
Christening Date    14 Aug 1765
Christening Place    SAINT MARY,BURY,LANCASHIRE,ENGLAND
Birth Date    20 Jul 1765
Father's Name    James Morton

There is a will for a JOHN HOLLAND, yeoman, of Torbuck (near Huyton) for 1787, proved in 1831.
This will (1831) 'features' SAMUEL HOLLAND MORETON.
I think Margaret would have been John's daughter.

You can see the will via FamilySearch catalogue.
