Best of luck with the Evanses - such a difficult name to chase.

Cannot see John Evans or Margaret in Pontweli/lly in 1871. The addresses on the 1871 Census sheet reads -
" ..., Toll Bar, Danygraig, Rhydygalfe, Old Toll Bar (unoccupied), Half Moon Inn, Twellyside, Pontwelly Stores, Fountain, Panteg, Cilgwyn Arms ..."

"Fountain" is occupied by Daniel Jones, 57, Carpenter, born Llandissil. On the 1861 Census under "Pontweli Village" is "Daniel Jones, 48, Carpenter, born Llandyssil
"Panteg" is occupied by Daniel Davies, 61, carpenter, born Llangeler. On the 1861 Census under "Pontweli Village" is a "Daniel Davies, 52, born Llangeler"
In 1861 both were close neighbours of John Evans.

Checking Street view there is a "Twellyside" and "Half Moon Inn" still on Station Road .

I've found "The Old Toll Gate" on the A486 and on the 1876 map marked "T.P", west of "Tan y Graig Fach".

The Sutton Coldfield News, 1 July 1950, reported a court case where Reuben Verdun Harris, Newton Row, was fined for speeding.

Later newspaper reports, Jun 1972, give his address as 61 Meriden Drive, Kingshurst.

On the 1861 Census, John Evans, 63, Stonemason and Margaret, 59 are still in Pontweli/lly Village but with a "Mary Evans, dau, age 5, born Llangeler"?

The sequence of addresses reads " ..., Dangraigfach, Rhydgalfau, Gate House, Pontwelly (6 premises)" then "End of Pontwelly village".

Wd. be nice to identify where the Gate House (toll) was.

On the '51 Census Mary Evans, 26, gives her place of birth as "Llanfihangel" which I take to be "Lllanfihangel-ar-arth". The nearest fit I can find is -

Baptisms - Parish Church of Llanfihangel-ar-arth
5 Jan 1822, Mary, dau. of John and Margaret Evans, father's occpn. Mason, abode "Graig fach".

At post #2 above is a link to the map of the area. The closest I can find to "Graig fach" is "Tan-y-graig-fch" - top right corner.
As for baptisms of all the other children mentioned I have drawn a blank. I found a birth registration for a Peter Evans, Mar Qtr 1844, Newcastle Emlyn which fits the 7 yr old Peter on the '51 Census - mother's maiden name is Evans.

As for your John's address, I notice on Streetview that the cottages on Station Road, Pontweli/lly are numbered 1-8 (before the Cilgwyn pub). I did wonder if these are the 8 premises on the '41 Census. Do the cottages look old enough?

If you are checking Familysearch for the Census, you will not be seeing the original Census sheets?

1841 Census
Census sheet is headed "Parish of Llangeler (part of)". In the "Place" column is "Pentreweli Village" and it lists 10 premises under that address. The Evans' household is -
John Evans, Mason, 40, not born in County
Margaret Evans, 35, David 15, Margaret 11, Evan 8, Ann 7 and William 1 - all born in County Carmarthenshire.

The age of anyone over 15 is rounded down to the nearest 5 eg. Margaret could be any age between 35 and 39.

The Census sheet is headed ""Parish Llangeler, Village of Pontweli"
The "Name of Street, Place or Road and Name or No of House" column only includes a house number "No1 - No 8" (8 households). Your John is at No2. In error, whoever transcribed the Census sheet took the name "Gwargoelan" from the last entry preceding Pontweli Village. All 8 households have the name "Gwargoelan" against them. The Evans household is

John Evans, Head, Marr, 50, Mason, born Llangeler (NOTE - this conflicts with the 1841 birthplace)
Margaret Evans, Wife, Marr, 47, born Llanfihangel (the age fits the 1841 rounding down)
Mary, 26, Unm, Mason's Daur, born Llanfihangeli
Peter 7, son, born Llangeler; Thomas 4, born Llangeler.

Daughter Mary does not link the 1841 and 1851 households.

On the 1841 Census, John Evans' next door neighbour is William Jones, Tailor. He is still next door in 1851. A David Simon, Weaver, is next door but one in 1841 and still next door but one in 1851.

FindMyPast (source National Archives) has a Royal Naval record (1 page) for "Peter George Harbridge, DoB 31 July 1907, born Birmingham, trade Glass Maker" - period 1953 - 1960.

The date of birth fits the GRO birth registration of September Qtr 1907.
