Hi khards,
With no DOB or POB to go on Williams is a very common name.

Is this the correct one?

1841 Census
Penybont, Llanstephan, Carmarthenshire,
James WILLIAMS, 30, Ag lab
Mary, 30
David, 15
John, 10
Daniel, 9
Esther, 7
Joseph, 5
Henry, 2

Is the Child you are descended from born after this Census?
A Birth Cert of a Child born post 1837 will give you Marys maiden name.

Hello  :)

There aren't many births of Henry Williams in Carmarthen registration district 1837-39 so it's worth contacting Carmarthen register office to ask them to check Llansteffan births. Specify James and Mary as parents and Penybont as the address and hopefully they will find the right birth certificate, which you can then purchase.

Kind Regards
