  • Notes 
    • Great Migration Begins, pgs. 1296-7: George Morton arrived at Plymouth aboard the Anne in 1623. His origins are unknown. His occupation was merchant, and he was likely literate given his son's literary accomplishments.

      "Through his marriage to Juliana Carpenter, George Morton was brother-in-law to Samuel Fuller, William Bradford, and William Wright, and was uncle to Constant Southworth and Edward Southworth (see Priscilla Carpenter).

      "In 1957 John G. Hunt published a speculative piece suggesting a distant collateral connection between William Bradford and George Morton [NEHGR 111:68]."
