    Notes:

    Name:
    Extract from the SA Biographical Index:
    Arrived in Adelaide 17 August 1847 from England in CRESSY. Occ Wheelwright, Blacksmith, Coachbuilder. Res Adelaide, Goodwood, Edwardstown. Rel CofE, Wesleyan.

    Died:
    The death of another old colonist, Mr. William Leaity Morris, of Edwardstown, is reported. Mr. Morris was born in the Parish of Gulvall, near Penzance, Cornwall, in 1807, and thus had reached the ripe old age of 90 years. He and his wife (who has been dead about nine years), with three sons and two daughters, arrived the colony in 1847 in the ship Cressy. They lived in Adelaide for a short time, and then removed to Magill. Mr. Morris worked at his trade as a wheelwright in the employ of the late Mr. Adamson for a time, and subsequently, after purchasing land in King William street south, he commenced business there on his own account. It was while carrying on this business that he became so widely known, especially as a waggon builder.
    After taking the first prize for the first colonial-built waggon in connection with the Agricultural Society's shows his vehicles were much sought after by farmers and carriers of the colony, and the good name he then earned as a tradesman was maintained up to the time of his retirement from business, about 12 years ago. Mr. Morris never took part in public affairs, being of a retiring disposition, but he was admired by all who came in contact with him for his sterling business integrity and up-rightness of character. Four sons and three daughters with their families of 50 grandchildren and 42 great grandchildren survive him.
