  MORRIS, James. Born 8 Aug 1817, Ashby-de-la-Zouch,
  Leicestershire, England; d. 16 Mar 1904, Cape Town, South
  Africa. Was a trader in Namaland, Namibia. A sister or niece
  may have married STEWARDSON. Was there any connection with
  Abraham Morris, leader of the Bondelswarts rebellion? Looking
  for any information about relations, especially Stewardson
  connection. There is a reference in E. Tabler's "Pioneers of
  South West Africa and Ngamiland" to a Thomas MORRIS, who traded
  in Namibia, and had a nephew of the same name. All connections
  of any of the above sought. He was also said to have had a
  brother William. The Morris family seem to have also lived in
  Wynberg in the Western Cape, and to have been butchers, trading
  with St Helena and Ascension Islands.
