1873 "....On Wednesday, Mr. Morris was married to Miss Sophy Mary Miles, of Manor House, Friern Barnet. Mr. Morris being anxious that all connected with the firm should celebrate this important event, invited all connected with the works to supper in the Corn Hall, at Stowmarket, and afterwards gave them an opportunity of drinking his health and that of his newly wedded wife. It is needless to add that this was an act of kindness which was most thoroughly appreciated. Supper was spread at eight o'clock, and between 200 and 300 persons were present."
