Thanks again, Alberbury.

Yes, you have found the link with my Owens family in the 1861 at Carreghofa, Garth, Llanfyllin: Margaret Owens (niece 16), who was my great grandfather's sister. Unfortunately, I cannot read Robert Thomas' occupation on the image and Ancestry does not provide a transcription. Is it "Parish Clerk & ???????"? In the 1841, he was a schoolmaster. Neither can I read Catherine's occupation? Can you help please? (RG9/4261/41/p. 10).

Now found that Robert Thomas (b c1819) and Catherine Gwynne married Q1/1850 @ Oswestry, which would mean that the first 3 children (William 1834; Elizabeth 1838; and Edward 1840) are those of another Robert Thomas & Catherine (possibly Catherine Lewis) who married in 1833. Robert would only be 14 in 1833.

However, I now cannot find the family in the 1851C.

Many thanks for the new information on the Gwynnes.

Best wishes
