Thankyou Ellenmai I was curious about that because I was told  at one time that after James Dougas died there were two other sons , James and the other Douglas . That wasn't verified.
Oh dear another one , poor little Walter  :(

That can't be right a-l as James Douglas is a widower in 1911. I have found a possible death for Louisa Jane Morris 1906 Leicester age 47 she was probably worn out and heartbroken with all those deaths  :-\

Sue,

Perhaps it would be best to now collate all the names you are completely sure of and hopefully it will match the number 15  :)

I know of a case where two sisters were brought up in a family with another girl who wasn't actually their sister but always referred to her as their sibling. Just wonder if this could be a similar case with the Morris family.

You mentioned a Nellie Jane born 1902, the only Nelly Jane Morris born in 1902, Leicester had a mother's maiden name of Wilson  ???

Unfortunately all our posts does not answer your original question, if you have a look at the GRO website for births you should be able to find all the Morris/ Brooks.

Sorry Ellenmai I meant the James Douglas who died as a boy. Yes that's Louisa I must send for that certificate, always wondered about her death.
