Mornington is a suburb of Wellington, New Zealand, on the southern hills behind Brooklyn. It is named after the Duke of Wellington's father, the Earl of Mornington. The original Mornington is in County Meath, and was the Irish seat of the Duke's father. It was named in 1878 from the time when J.F.E. Wright (1827-1891) subdivided his land in the south-west of the city in partnership with Jacob Joseph, and created the suburbs of Mornington and Vogeltown.
