Stephen Taylor, brought over by Nicholas Morris 1654

Does anyone have information on where I can find out about a Stephen Taylor, brought over by Nicholas Morris in 1654 as part of his land grant in Northumberland County in 1653?

There was another Stephen Taylor who married a Margaret. That ST came over in 1644 and died before 1652; that's not the Stephen I'm looking for. "Our" Stephen is mentioned in Greer and in the Land Grants book. Any help is appreciated!
