Not found David Lewis on 1841 census.
1822 baptism identified may be a possible.

if that is the family, David died between 1881 & 1891 census - Elizabeth a widow in 1891. There's a burial in Llandilofawr 15 Nov 1887 for a David Lewis but address given as Savings Bank, so probably not that one.
Could be this death reg David Lewis 64 jun qtr 1886 Llandilofawr vol 11a pg 541

Could you confirm that family I gave in previous post is the correct one. There are plenty of David Lewises around and we need info from you so that we don't waste time searching the wrong one.
