Morgan had acquired the degree of Doctor of Laws some time before 1398, when he is mentioned in the Episcopal Registers of St. David's as rector of Aberedw, although not yet ordained priest. He became chaplain to King Henry V of England and accompanied him on his campaigns in Normandy in 1417-20. He was given a diplomatic role and was appointed Chancellor of Normandy in April 1418.
Morgan was elected Bishop of Worcester on 24 April and appointed on 19 June 1419. He received possession of the temporalities of the Diocese of Worcester on 18 October and was consecrated on 3 December 1419 in Rouen Cathedral while still in France with King Henry. He was postulated to the archbishopric of York in November or December 1423, but the move was quashed on 14 February 1424. He remained Bishop of Worcester until he was translated to the bishopric of Ely on 27 February and received possession of the temporalities of the Diocese of Ely on 22 April 1426.
