Do you have their marriage cert? That should give the names & occupations of both fathers. As it looks like Nicholas was not Jane's maiden name, it would help to find her family.

marriage ref
Pontypridd sept qtr 1868 vol 11a pg 415

This would look to be Jane with her first husband in 1851
Cae Hopkin, Uchlawrcoed , Bedwellty HO107/2448 folio 535 pg 12
Nicholas Nicholas head mar 29 miner b. Mon, Bedwellty
Jane wife 25 b. Glam, Gelligaer
David son 4 b. Mon, Bedwellty
Richard son 2 b. Mon, Rhymney
Jesse Evans lodger 30 miner b. Breconshire, Llanwrtyd
Evan Evans lodger 28 b. Mon, Bedwellty

Likely marriage
Nicholas Nicholas march qtr 1846 Abergavenny vol 26 pg 41 with Jane Richards on the same page

They all resided Gilfach Goch, Rhondda Valley, Glamorgan, Wales at time of marriage.

can't spot a likely family for David with brother Edward, but I'll have another look later. If the address on the cert is Gilfach Goch, it means that's where they were living at the time of marriage, not where they were from. The census gives David as born Merthyr Tydfil and Jane Gelligaer.

Where did you find he has a brother Edward? I can't find any information on free census.
