I have Pryce Morris b1862 Gladestry Wales (Blacksmith)
Married Louisa Frances Stedman.b 1867 Knighton Wales married 1890
they had 3 children
Marrion L. Morris b. 1896 Knighton
Winston Pryce Morris. b 1900Knighton
William Morris, b. 1904 Bucknall Shropshire.
Pryce, Lousia, Marrion (Minnie) and Winston are all on the 1901 census in Knighton,
on the 1911 census the 3 children are living in Bucknall with Rosa Jane Morris and are classed as step children to her. There is no mention of Pryce the father who I am assuming remarried to Rosa, but I cannot find a death for either Louisa or Pryce. :-S

Just posting that 1911 to work from:

MORRIS, Rosa Jane Head Married F 51 1860 Dining Room Keeper Shropshire Bucknell

MORRIS, William Stepson Single M 7 1904 School Shropshire Bucknell
EDGE, Louisa Sister Widow F 49 1862 Assistant Dining Room Keeper Shropshire Bucknell

RG number: RG14 Piece: 18045

Registration District: Birmingham
Sub District: All Saints
Enumeration District: 13
Parish: Birmingham

Address: 40 Hockley Hill Birmingham County: Warwickshire

Rosa Jane says she's been married 3 years, doesn't say she's widowed so Pryce should be somewhere.
Elsie's surname is Evett, not Morris.

Thank you that clears up Louisa, she seems to have had the child William in Bucknell and gone back to Knighton where she died. The family then go back to Bracknell after the marriage

I have looked and looked for him on the 1911. I did find one of a different birth year living as a logder who says he was a widow. Or he could have just been soemwhere where they could'nt get to him to take the census or on the road or in a boarding house and got missed off.
