I'm now researching this again and looking into finding more.

An update is that I match on DNA with a line leading from ancestor of Thomas Henry Morgan which is encouraging.

Thank you.

The reference to James surname was on there as it was a full tree. Sorry, should of clarified it might not of been on baptism.

Interesting about the age listed on the other entry. The occupations aren't the same as William Lewis later on.

Any idea please?

I have found on another site this.

Mary Lewis
Baptism 20 Oct 1837 in Cadoxton Juxta Neath,Glamorgan,Wales
Parents are William Lewis and Anne

Does not list father occupation? This is quite close to Dowlais?

I wouldn't think Cadoxton particularly close to Dowlais - it's the bottom end of a different valley from Merthyr

This is an interesting little snippet from the Glamorgan Monmouth and Brecon Gazette and Merthyr Guardian of 31 May 1834

William Lewis, sawyer, Dowlais, was ordered to pay 10s, an abatement in his wages,for a misdemeanour committed in his employ under the Dowlais Iron Company, on the oaths, of William Lewis, Master carpenter, and Edward Evan, coal weigher.

Also another story where a William Lewis, sawyer, of Dowlais and wife Mary, found a dying man
