Do you have a copy of Amanda's birth certificate??

Births Jun 1894
Morris Amanda Sheffield 9c 588

The certificate should give you her mothers maiden name.

1901 England Census show this family

Morris Family at Attercliffe Cum Darnall Yorkshire

Henry, Head 47 b1854 Worksop Nottingham - Stonemason
Harriet, Wife 48 b1853 Thorpe Hesley Yorkshire
Betsy E, daug 24 b1877 Sth Carlton Nottingham
Tom P, son 18 b1883 Chesterfield Derbyshire - stonemason
Beatrice, daug 16 b1885 Chesterfield Derbyshire - cutlery warehouse assistant
Gertrude, daug 11 b1890 Sheffield Yorkshire
Amanda, daug 7 b1894 Sheffield Yorkshire

1911 England Census

Henry Morris, 57 widow married 37 years 7 children all living
Amanda 17 daughter
also a nephew Arthur Smith and his wife Betsy Smith living with them

1891 Census Atterclifffe Cum Darnall, Yorkshire
shows the other 2 children
Marian b1879 Sth Carlton Nottinghamshire
Henry b1881 Sth Carlton Nottinghamshire
shows Tom b 1883 as Tom S

this could possibly be his birth
Births Jun 1882
Morris Tom Sylvester Chesterfield 7b 718

possible birth for Betsy
Births Mar 1878
MORRIS Betsy Ann Basford 7b 211

There is this marriage which could be your Henry & Harriet

Marriages Dec 1877)
Henstock Harriett Ann Nottingham 7b 461
Morris Henry John Nottingham 7b 461

you would need to purchase the certificates to verify the details.
