ELIZABETH LEWIS (?) Abbeycwmhir, Cwmdauddwr, St Harmon
« on: Sunday 20 June 10 20:10 BST (UK) »
Keen to track this following person a notch back.  Details so far:

1. 1841, Elizabeth Price (original name not certainly established, at Coppahil, Llanwrthwl, age 40, said to be born out of county (or is that out of parish?).  Of course, Llanwrthwl is Breconshire.  [Spouse, Evan, daughters Elizabeth and Hanah, other Rees Jones]
2. 1851, same name, this time Coppa, age 50, origin = Radnorshire NK.  [Spouse Evan, daughter Elizabeth, servant Rees Jones, unrelated nursing child Sarrah Kinsey.]
3. 1861, same name, at Coppah, age 60, origin = Abbeycwmhir (mis-spelled). [Spouse Evan, illegitimate grand-daughter Jane, servant Sarah Jones]
4. 1871, same name, Fron, Rhayader, age 68, claimed origin = Llanwrthwl, Breconshire, widowed. [Sarah Jones boarder, illegitimate grand-daughter Jane Price, Price Jones, son of boarder]
5. 1881, same name, at 4 Tanner's Row, Rhayader, age 86, origin = St Harmon, Radnorshire. (Edward Evans, in-law; Jane Evans, grand-daughter; William Evans, great grandson]
6. died 1 February 1882 at Tanner Row Rhayader said to be 86.

1801 seems to be year of birth (though 1803 and 1795 lay some claim).
The original name may be Elizabeth Lewis as I found a marriage record for Cwmdauddwr church from 3 March 1830.  However, more time would have allowed me to be more thorough  in cross-checking rivals if any.
Anyway, keen to track her baptism and parentage.
