I live a few miles from Stoke Lacy.  It's such a small village I wonder why David would consistently list this as his birthplace unless he was born/lived there at  some point.   I have tried following other David's born about the same time in the area with no success so far.   I can't see an obvious Thomas Morgan living in the Reg Disricts of Bromyard or Leominster in the 1851 census either

I notice that when David died in 1911 probate was granted to his wife and a James Wiggett assistant foreman.  Do you know who James Wiggett was and whether he might have been a relative??

Sorry Kay, I donít know who that is. He could possibly have been associated with his second wife, Emily. Iím not sure. Thanks for looking at neighbouring districts. The Morgan line does seem to be a real mystery.

If he was born there, I'm inclined to go with your theory about Talchddu.

I've been trying to investigate a famous Morgan that was born in Stoke Lacy to see if there is a possible connection with David, so far I have'nt been able to make that connection.

Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan. ( founder of the Morgan Motor Company ).
born 1881, Moreton Jeffries Rectory, Stoke Lacy, his father was rector there, Henry George Morgan, born 1852,Stoke Lacy , died 1836, Bromyard, Herefordshire. His father was Rev. Henry Morgan born c1822, died 1887.
These time frames would fit with Davids father, Thomas.
