According to sources David's brother Edward was born 1852 Rhymney, Glamorgan, Wales. I searched and that appeared to be covered by Abergavenny. There was only one birth entry so I ordered it. It listed his father as William Morgan (Which has already been confirmed by David's marriage certificate) and his mother as Elizabeth Hugues.

I found the marriage of William Morgan and Elizabeth Hugues and have ordered that to see if the occupations match up.

I saw the source on Ancestry, I thought I also found Rhymney on the census. Thank you for clarifying.

On the 1871 census you are correct it is listed as Merthyr, Glamorganshire, Wales.

On the 1881 census it is listed as Rhymey Bedwellty Parish

On the 1891 census it is listed as Rhymney, Glamorgan, Wales

On the 1901 census it is listed as Merthyr, Glamorgan, Wales

Hello everyone,

Thank you for all the help a long time ago. I am now researching again and looking for any advice on where to head next on getting further back or confirming data.

It has been a long time so hoping there any other sources to find data? I've found a few things various sources but looking for feedback.

not sure what you mean by a premium source. The usual sources are census entries, bmd certificates and parish records. Detailed census entries start in 1841, although 1841 has less detail than following years. You can access census entries and check the enumerator's copies via sited like Ancestry and Findmypast. FindMyPast also has scans of an amount of parish records from Wales. As the David Morgan/Jane Nicholas marriage was in a non-conformist chapel, there may not be baptism records to find if one or both of the families were non-conformist. Before the start of civil registration in 1837, marriages will have been in the established church.

FreeReg has transcripts of some parish & non-conformist records. There's a likely looking entry for Jane Richards 26 Nov 1826 at Penuel Baptist Church in Rhymney, Mon daughter of Richard & Jane, father a miner, abode Cwm Carno Rumney Works. This is possibly a list of births, not a baptism as Baptists don't practice infant baptism. Also a sister Margaret on 31 July 1824, brother David 28 Feb 1819 registered 25 Dec 1827. Also Mary born 14 Feb 1829, and Thomas 11 July 1831 registered 19 Sep 1831 children of Richard D Richard & June, father a miner, abode Bute Town Rumney iron Works

There is a marriage in St Tydfil's for Richard David Richard & Jane Williams 8 May 1819

I have found a few different marriages of William Morgan but the dates and location are confusing on the census.
