Hi Dave,

The marriage certificate will give the fathers name and occupation and it may help to narrow the family down on the census, as Davids pob varies.

Hi Dave
I have just found a family tree on Ancestry owner is Jenkinss7
they have David Lewis B 1849 Aberystruth Monmouthshire Wales
parents David Lewis B 1799 & Hannah Harries/Harris B1809 D 1890
Hannah's Parents were Thomas Harris B1780D 1851 Mother Kitty Aston B 1781 D 1864

David Lewis b 1849 married a Margaret Lewis B 1847 in Bedwellty
marriage 1867
their children were Jane B 1873, Laura 1876 D 1941 Arthur 1878
Laura married a David Jenkins 12-3-1895 and had children

If this is your Family and you do not have access to Ancestry i would be willing to print some of the information and send to you

Family Search has the birth of David Lewis 1849 Aberytstruth Monmouth England parents David & Hannah
Hope this helps with your research I got interested because i am researching The Lewis Families also who came to Australia
