p.s. there is another william lewis born in st.harmon in the 1851 census
he is aged 20 and is lodging in montgomeryhire. he is a lead miner
so think the one posted is probably the better bet.

again in 1841 in st.harmon there are two possibilities
1841
HO107/1458/4/4/2.
william lewis age 13. b. in county. occ. male servant.
cannot make out if he is living alone or in the household of edward and mary price.
address; st.harmon,radnorshire.
could SKS have a look and give their opinion on whether he is living alone


here is the other one in 1841
HO107/1458/4/7/8.
john lewis ge 50. occ. agr.lab.
jane lewis age 50.
margaret lewis age 15.
