That is what I had to do... a simple s/sheet with first column  just having the Year, then a sort got them into a timeline.  Adding anything bit by bit got family units.

Thanks to David Leahy I now have a host of Morton records sourced from the Charleton Charitable Fund Marriage records.

It appears my Thomas Morton when he married Mary Faucett/Fawcett in 1840 named his father as Edward Morton. Thomas was living in Toome, Taghshinny, Co Longford.

I have also put all the data into a spreadsheet.

McGaveston - Dublin-Ireland, France, New Zealand
White - Shalden, Alton, Chawton-Hampshire
O'Donnell - New Zealand, Co Down-Northern Ireland, USA
Franklin/Fraenkel - New Zealand, Prussia
Day - Echuca, Tongala, London, Fairford-Gloucestershire
Clark/McGraw - New Zealand, Ireland, England
McMahon -Ipswich-QLD, Kiladysart-Co Clare
Smith - Ipswich, Pine Mountain, Redbank-QLD, Co Westmeath, Co Cavan-Ireland
McGuire - Redbank - QLD, Co Westmeath-Ireland
Culhane - Queensland, Ardlaghan - Co Limerick
