MORRIS, William. [A sea chart of Wales from the beginning of the 19th century]
To the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners for executing the Office of Lord High Admiral of Great Britain, Ireland, &c. This Chart of St George's Channel &c. Surveyed under their Lordships' direction by the late Lewis Morris Esq.r which is now extended by an Actual Survey (the whole Corrected & much Improved) from Liverpool to Cardiff in the Bristol Channel; is by Permission most respectfully dedicated, by their Lorships' obedient humble servant, William Morris.

A 'blue-back' seac hart of St George's Channel from Formby Point in Lancashire south around the coast of Wales to Cardiff, with Lundy, Ilfracombe and Minehead along the bottom edge of the Bristol Channel. In Ireland Dublin, Wicklow and Wexford Bay are marked. Lewis Morris (1701-65) was a self-taught hydrographer from Anglesey who published his important survey of the Welsh coast, ''Plans of harbours, bars, bays and roads in St. George’s Channel'' in 1748. His son William (1758-1808) continued his work, reissuing the survey in 1801, adding new harbours that had gained in importance since 1758, including Liverpool and Swansea. This chart was published separately the year before.
