I have looked at the page you cite, and I think Mary's birthplace is a mis-spelling of
Cosheston. The address is not a street, it's a property/farm by the name of Stammers
just West of the actual village of Saundersfoot.
Please note that there were several Thomas Morrises in the area at that time. Double-check
that you have the right one with other sources that indicate close birth date.

Subject: [PEM] Morris and Phillips of Saundersfoot
Greetings from rainy central Pennsylvania!! I have recently joined
your group and have been enjoying it immensely. I need a bit of help with
reading the handwriting on the 1851 Wales Census. For St. Issells,
Saundersfoot, HO 107/2475. At the top of the page is listed Thomas Morris,
my great-great grandfather, his wife Mary and son William (I am descended
from their other son Edwin, born in 1854). Under "where born" for Mary, I
think it says "Coseshton", or "Coueshton". I think it's
Cosheston, but I
was wondering if some nice person could take a look and help me verify that,
and maybe it's a case of bad spelling. Also, I can't read the name of their
street. Mary's maiden name is Phillips, and if so, I think I found her on
the 1841 census for Coshestion, but I want to make sure.
Thanks for any help anyone can send my way.
