Hi Fargo
Have a look at this from 1861 for Gweny, her hubby Thomas.
You may recognize some of the kiddies.

oops she's the daughter of Thomas..
I've found her in 1851
She has a brother Howell, is this who she was living with when quite elderly??

In the 1891 census that GB found Howell and his family are living with Gwenllian.

1891 census YSTRADFELTE

Gwenllian Lewis b 1813
Howell Lewis b 1864
Ann Lewis b 1864
Gwenllian Lewis b 1886
William Lewis b 1889

Note Howell's kids appear to have been named after his grandparents.

I wonder if Howell's mother was single when she had him, hence him been raised by family.

dave,

Could you please confirm that the William Lewis aged 32 in the 1841 from FS that I posted in #2 is not part of the household with Gwenlian aged 29 that you found.

Are we any closer to determining either of Howell's (b. abt 1864) parents from info in the census records? Is the 1885 marriage to Ann Jones the only option left?

Thanks.

Dave
