Morris Family Newport, Shropshire
I am looking for information on the family of John Morris Sr and Maria Gallagher Morris who lived in Newport, Shropshire in 1841. I have the 1841 Census for the family which shows John Morris Sr occupation as Hawker and their children as Michael Morris, Bridget Morris, Margaret Morris, and John Morris Jr. I have located baptism records for;

Mary Morris Birth: Dec 1829
Baptism: 27 Dec 1829 Chester, Cheshire, England St Werburgh's

Catherine Morris Birth: 7 Aug 1832
Baptism: 16 Aug 1832 Newport, Shropshire, England
(Saints Peter & Paul)

Margaret Morris Birth: 27 June 1836
Baptism: 10 July 1836 Newport, Shropshire, England
(Saints Peter and Paul)

John Morris Jr Birth: 30 Dec 1839
Baptism: 5 Jan 1840 Newport, Shropshire, England
(Saints Peter and Paul)

Maria Morris Birth: 1 Feb 1842
Baptism: 6 Feb 1842 Newport, Shropshire, England
(Saints Peter and Paul)

I do not have birth records for Michael Morris, Anne Morris or Bridget Morris while Anne Morris does not appear on the 1841 census I do have documentation proving she is one of John Morris and Maria Gallagher Morris children. I have hit a brick wall with this family as I cannot figure out what happened to the family AFTER 1841 with the exception of Michael Morris, Maria Morris and I have traced Margaret to 1861 Kent, England as a servant then I've lost her trail, I believe she may have married after 1861, but I have no idea who. I've looked through more 1851 census for Shropshire than I can count, but can't match any to this family. Any help I can get will be appreciated! Maria
