It's quite likely that the family are on one of the missing pieces  in 1841:

Just  checked and the area that they were living in in 1851 was missing in 1841

Cyfnant Erryrys/Eryrys (Llanarmon yn Ial)  is listed as missing.

Added - I've got the Denbighshire n-con CD and will check it tomorrow - had a busy day.

Been doing more investigations.

Did John Griffiths marry Harriet Clarke at Christ Church, Pontblyddyn, Flintshire in 1854*?  They had a son, Edmund circa 1856 and a daughter Rebecca in 1860/61. On the 1861 Census at Benllan, Gwersyllt RG9/4277/112/30. John born Llanarmon and Harriet born Leeswood.

* from NWales BMD

I don't see a record of their marriage online but the RG ref is 4th Quarter, 1854, Holywell, 11B, 586

This would probably  give details of John's father.

Maybe best to get the marriage cert. I always doubt online trees. Need proper proof.
