This is great information and covers the two MORTON families who orginally settled in the region - one is linked to the NOBLE family, and the other to the MORTON family who arrived from East Kilbride in Scotland. I am still looking for THOMAS MORTON who arrived in 1859 on the Cheviot into Port Chalmers, brother of John Morton, who disappeared after the initial arrival was recorded.
I am looking for Clement Dickson and Elizabeth Morton who came to Invercargill c1863. They had 12 children born there. By 1883 Clem and Elizabeth had moved to Dunedin and by 1901 they were in Melbourne Australia.
They had tree sons who carried on the family name, Alfred Clement, William George and Sidney Augustus. Both parents died in Australia.
If anyone has any information on this lost family please contact Lee Whitmore.
