Edward David Morton, a very successful physician and surgeon, was born in the county of Wicklow, Ireland, June 18, 1835, his father being Francis Morton, a gentleman farmer.

He was educated in the ordinary schools of his native country and by private tuition; came to Canada in 1856; studied medicine with his brother, George Dean Morton, M. D., Bradford; attended lectures in the medical department of the University of Toronto; was graduated in 1860, and after practicing two short years in company with his brother at Bradford, settled in Barrie, soon building up a lucrative practice.

He has a large farm two miles from town, stocked with blooded horses and cattle, and under fine improvement. It is managed by an experienced farmer, and the Doctor gives only such time to it as he needs for recreation, letting nothing divert him from his professional duties. He owes his success entirely to the close attention which he gives to his professional studies, and the promptness with which he attends to professional calls.

January 7, 1863, Miss A. A. Laughton, of Holland Landing, county of York, was married to Dr. Morton, and they have six sons.
