Hi Clancam
I can't see any arrival in Australia, but in the period 1824-1828 there are a few shipping records for a seaman named John Morris going from Tasmania to other Australian ports.

What other information do your have??. Year of birth for John?. Did they stay in Australia? Other children born?

It seems John was a widower on that marriage in 1823, so do you have his first marriage?

A possibility:
On 4 Feb 1824 the Aguilar arrives from England with a Mr (https://stors.tas.gov.au/NI/1492895) and a Mrs (https://stors.tas.gov.au/NI/1492896) Morris on board.

Update: with a child?: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/1090064?searchTerm=Aguilar
