Is there anyway I could find the mothers name of Mary Lewis?

she's not leaping out, is she? Can't see a parish baptism for her either, working from the birthplace given in 1861 of Dowlais.
I've had a look at the marriage, and I don't think the second witness, Thomas Falloon, is related as he witnesses all the marriages on the next pages. The other witness looks like Ann ?ooke her X mark. Not sure on the first letter comparing it with other writing by the cleric. May be a p?

I cannot find a census entry with a spouse. The above could be the correct family though. Maybe Margaret Reynold is cousin? Or maybe I should look for a baptism/birth of Elizabeth Lewis/Lawes?

Is there anyway to confirm the census? I may order a few Elizabeth Lewis birth certificates? Or is there anyway to find a baptism/birth online for Dowlais?

I doubt that is the correct family. Mary was 25 on the 1861 census, so would be rather less than 17 in 1841. I'll go have a little look.

sorry, just realised this is an 1851 census. It's much easier if you type out your own transcription with places of birth & occupations, in fact, that's what you're meant to do, not copy & paste which infringes copyright and doesn't make sense out of context. The William on that 1851 has labourer at the Iron works as his occupation, not sawyer, so still not a brilliant match. Hold your horses on the birth certs fir the mo.
