John Hughes Morris (1870–1953) was born in Penrhosllugwy, Anglesey but moved to Liverpool as a young lad. He only received elementary education at Chatsworth School, Liverpool but he had considerable talent, and when he was 22 years of age he came to work at the office of the Foreign Mission in Falkner Street, near the Philharmonic Hall. This mission began in Liverpool in 1840 by the Presbyterian church of Wales Morris remained at this office till 1949, a period of 57 years.

Writing and editing career

The missionary, Dr Helen Rowlands of Sylhet said of him "The map of the world (and not only India) was continuously before his eyes at all times". Yet he never visited India but wrote two volumes on the romance of the mission work. The Welsh volume is called Hanes Cenhadaeth Dramor y Methodistiaid Calfinaidd Cymreig published at Caernarfon in 1907.

He edited two magazines which have been discontinued. He edited Cenhadwr (Missionary) from its inception in 1922 till his retirement in 1949, and it retained its high standard throughout the years giving the readers an idea of the activities of missionaries in the Khasi Hills, Lushai Hills and those who laboured on the plains of Sylhet. He also edited the sister magazine for the English speaking Welsh Presbyterians. The title of this magazine was Glad Tidings.
