Perhaps a clue lies in the 1871 census,but before that Margaret Morris appears to have had a number of illegitimate children(?)
1851 census she has a son William(1842) and daughter Jane Kemp(?)(1848)
1861 census a daughter Margaret(1859

The 1871 census has her as head of household,alone in one major database,but on the next page immediately there is Robert James,described as son and Jane as wife,together with a William James also son.Jane's age is indecipherable/crossed out and William  is given as 1849,but what if Robert James is her "son in law"with Jane his "wife",her dasughter and William her son misnamed as a James? - RG10/5570/56/23

I have put inverted commas to fit the next speculation.Elizabeth who appears as the granddaughter to Elizabeth Morris could be the daughter of Jane and Robert James(unmarried?).There is a death of a Jane Morris aged 30 in 1876 in the Tregaron district that could be the Jane above leaving Robert James to marry an Elizabeth.

Highly speculative,but worth consideration?

Some more data that may be relevant.If you have access to the 1911 image as CaroleW indicated the following Paddington deaths look relevant(FreeBMD)


1907  George Robert Bayes aged 1
1908  James Rodney Bayes aged 0

However,given that there are 4 more Swansea births for Bayes,between 1912 and 1916,with maiden name James(FreeBMD),one  of which(1913) is Frederick R,the following Paddington death also looks relevant

1902  Frederick R E  Bayes

This might suggest Elizabeth was  in the Paddington area in 1901 and there is an Elizabeth A James given born 1874 "Wales" as a cook in the household of William Dollar,a vet,which would fit  with George's occupation(inc. George Bay 1901 census found on previous thread)-RG13/14/68/34
