Thank you so much for this information, Martin,

Possibly the most interesting entry for me is that for 1824 because it
indicates "Morris and Sons". Since the James Morris I initially
enquired about was not married until 1831, this suggests that the
business was started by his father, and that James had brothers.

I appreciate your help, Martin. Thank you.
