I saw that one but didn't think it could be correct as not in the correct area - Ruabon is quite a way from either Llanarmon (yn Ial/Yal) or St Asaph.  Might be but .............................

Ah well! I had a senior moment (not unusual) and confused Elizabeth with Hannah who was from Mold. Sort of in the general area? Anyway I will go and take my Meds now!

My Ruabon records (Clwyd FHS)  don't say much - both otp but that could be for the min of 3 weeks with banns. Hannah could possibly have become a servant on John's farm and then they got married in Ruabon - a way from Erryrys (Llanarmon ybn Ial) but just possible. Hannah (b. c. 1784) would have been 30 by then.
I'll check to see if there was a Hannah Jones/John Thomas* in Ruabon around that time (children's bapts, etc)  so that we can discount  the marriage but it will be late tomorrow.

there's a small item in Y Cymro of 28 December 1899 , mentioning a Benjamin Thomas, Glyn Bank, Nercwys, who died March 22, aged 76. he was son of the old  Antinomian preacher John Thomas, Penyfoel, who was buried in June 1848.

Thank you all for the replies.  You are right about the John as Benjamin's father, I had forgotten that.   I have yet to find a baptism for Benjamin and who  John Griffiths is the nephew off whether it is Benjamin as head of house in 1851 census or Hannah. Was hoping the 1841 census would give possible siblings.

Thank you again Norma

I was showing that the probate listing made clear that the Benjamin Thomas of Nercwys who died in 1899, son of the preacher, was the one we were following. With the information that John died in 1848, and was an Antinomian preacher, that may give us some more to work with to find them in 1841
