  • Joseph Morton was among those members of the First Parish in Plymouth who, in December, 1743, withdrew, during the Great Awakening, because of their disapproval of Whitefield’s preaching and methods, formed the Third Parish, and built a Meeting-house in Middle Street (Precinct Book 1719-1813, p. 36.) The two Parishes re-united in 1784.

    Joseph Morton settled in Boston, where he kept the White Horse Tavern, opposite Hayward Place. The White Horse Tavern estate had a frontage on Newbury (now Washington) Street, opposite Hayward Place, of 114 feet (including Fayette Court, 11 feet wide, which almost evenly divides it), and a depth of 308 feet from Washington Street nearly, if not quite, back to what was later Head Place. The site was intersected by the laying out of Haymarket Place, in 1806. The front portion of the estate is now numbered 597 to 611 Washington Street; and the Tremont Theatre occupied a part of the rear of the lot.

    The hostelry was called the White Horse Inn as early as 27 April, 1700 (Deed from William Paine et ale. to Thomas Powell in Suffolk Deeds, xix. 347.) William Bowdoin conveyed the estate to Joseph Morton 20 March, 1765 (Ibid. civ. 89) ; and Morton conveyed it to his son Perez 3 May, 1791 (I bid. clxix. 224.)4
  • Joseph married Abigail Hersey on December 27, 1759 in Boston, Massachusetts, as his second wife.5
  • Joseph died on July 26, 1793 in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 81. His will, dated 31 March, 1787, was proved 8 October, 1793. It names his son Perez Executor and is replete with valuable genealogical data. (Sufiolk Probate Files, No. 20,211.) Cf. Davis's Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth, p. 190.3
