Ah, now that would fit. Also in the 1841  census with Elizabeth and William is David Hughes, age 40, pauper. If William then died between 1841 and 1851, that would explain the 1851 census with David Hughes, Elizabeth Williams (sister) and Evan Hughes (grandson - but of Elizabeth not David).

There is also a baptism record for Elizabeth Hughes in 1793 in Glyn Ceiriog. The father is Hugh Hughes, a 'millar' [sic]. "Millar" = "sawyer" ???

Diolch yn fawr, Gordon.

Thanks again Gadget,

Yes, that looks like a good fit. It seems that a lot of people in that area were called Hughes and were involved in the flannel industry !
