Thomas Hughes-Aberystwyth district-Wales

Hoping someone can help me find my lost Thomas Hughes, born circa 1801 +/- 2 yrs in Llanychaiarn, Cardiganshire, Wales.
He appears with wife Catherine (Maiden name as yet unknown) in the 1851 & 1871 in Aberystwyth district. Catherine was born 1798 +/- 2 yrs also on Cardigan, possibly also Llanychaiarn. I may also have them in the 1841- but not 100% positive as there were two Thomas & Catherines born around the same time living in the area.

Children possibly with them in 1861:
Margaret Hughes b 1828 Llanilar
Catherine Hughes b 1833 Llanilar
Mary Hughes b 1838 Llanilar
Also with them in the 1861 might be their granddaughter, Elizabeth Williams, b ca. 1850- as she was recorded with them in both the 1851 & 1871...

Their youngest daughter, Elizabeth Hughes b 1842 Llanilar, was visiting her brother Morgan (b. 1822 Llanilar) in Merthyr in the 1861- so I have wondered if the family moved to Dowlais, Glamorgan and later returned to the Aberystwyth district of Cardigan; though I don't see any sign of them in Merthyr, either.

Other children of Thomas and Mary:
David Hughes 1821 Llanilar
Morgan Hughes 1822 Llanilar (died in Dowlais, Glamorgan pre 1872)
Thomas Hughes 1824 Llanilar (stayed in Aberystwyth district for life)
John Hughes 1826 Llanilar
