Originally published by Lewis Morris (1700-1765) and here updated by his son William with 7 additional charts. "Welsh poet, antiquary and surveyor. As a result of the numerous wrecks and casualties on the Welsh coast, the Admiralty instructed him in 1737 to undertake a new survey. Morris had surveyed the whole of the west coast of Wales by the declaration of war against France in 1744. But the work was fatally interrupted by lack of funds for the project. The partially completed work was published in 1748 as 'Plans of harbours. in the St. George's Channel. As a result of his many other interests, Lewis Morris never returned to coastal surveying."—NMMC. National Maritime Museum Catalogue III (part one), 402; Phillips, 2889.
