Whilst written primarily as a family history for his children, Ken Morton’s book “In Neptune’s Wake” records the story of one of Waanyarra’s pioneering families, the Mortons, and their associated families.
The family, established by Irish convict Michael Morton in the early 1850’s lived at Waanyarra for almost 100 years—their original homestead “The Welcome Inn” still stands.
The remaining chapters deal with the lives and activities of the people in the various branches of Ken’s family and not considered appropriate for inclusion on the site.
Hard copies of the book are no longer available.
Ken has updated the content progressively on CD since first publishing in 1993.
