Richard Morris (2 February 1703 – December 1779) was a Welsh folklorist, a younger brother of Lewis Morris.
Morris was born in Anglesey, one of four notable brothers whose surviving correspondence is a valuable record of the time. He went to work in London as a clerk and court interpreter. In 1757, he became Chief Clerk to the Comptroller of the Navy. Along with his elder brother, he founded the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion among the London Welsh population.
