I've no idea Pauline - someone kindly sent me a print out of the transcription but since another town on there has been transcribed as 'Gillan' and appears to really be 'Marsh Gibbon' I should think it quite possible that Sarn could be it if nowhere else fits the bill.

There seems to be a Sarn each side of Newtown, right?

I've attached a map.  Newtown is just off the map on the left hand side.
