How did you decide he was William Seth?  All the census records 1851-1881 and his Marriage cert have him as just Seth.

His burial record of 1898, Bryneglwys, also has him as Seth.

Right!

I think this is probably your Seth:

Bryneglwys
8 Dec 1822
Seth Roberts, son of David (labourer) and Jane of Ty newydd, Pen y bedw.

This David fits the info of Seth's father on his marriage cert. Also. Bryneglwys is so close to Llandegla and part of Llanarmon yn Ial was transferred to Llandegla. It's a very good fit.

On the family trees I have looked at it gives his name William Seth , in 1841 it is William ..
not sure to be honest which name it is but like I said his other relatives have him down as William Seth

The 1841 that you found is NOT your Seth. How you came to think it was, I'm not sure, but it is not. None of his records mention that name.

So in 1841 it gives a Catherine roberts age 90 , so she could be the mother of David maybe , but depends on the maiden name of his wife .

I have just gone off about three or four other family trees that all have the same information , I have a DNA match and was trying to connect our trees , so I have not actually research the branch myself .

That record is nothing to do with him.

The part of the 1841 census where he is likely to be is probably missing - part of the wider Wrexham area and Llanarmon are listed on the missing list.

Don't rely on published trees.

This is the snip that Rosie put up yesterday. It is clearly William A Roberts.
