Hi can you help me? The only information I have is that my part of the Morton family came from Antrim County, around 1773 and they sailed from Port Larne. Thanks
I would love to know more about the history of MY Morton name. I believe I originated in Scotland because I paid quite a bit of money to have a ring made with the Morton family crest and that’s what they came up with but who knows? I would really be interested in learning more!

The family was originally from Tipton Staffordshire, then Motherwell and Glasgow , with links to the steel industry. I know we have family in Alberta too But apparently we were initially from Belgium , moved to Nottingham and were involved in lace and the cotton industry Of particular interest to me as well as family is military service.
