It's not the easiest!

I've been looking through the NLS OS maps, which are now searchable again, but the important area of the border between the two parishes is not available on the 25 inch/mile maps  :(

It's a bit of a leap of faith,but now there is the marriage certificate,could Robert be the son of David and Susanna as here(elsewhere their abode is Maes Traean/Truan?)

Worth checking on the 1841, Roger  :)

My eyes are getting squiffy from looking at those maps!

At least some of the 1841 for Llanelidan is missing.Haven't found them in 1851 yet.

Another thought occurs:

There is a Robert Jones on the 1851 census, born in Llanelidan, but working as a servant on a farm in Trewyn Bodlwydd. The farm is Caerddinen. I'm wondering whether the registrar misheard Caerddinen as Garthinen ? I'm also noting that both Robert and Margaret were illiterate so they would have had no idea what was written.

I'll try and find out who was living at Garthinen though.

That is exactly the conclusion I was about to post.In both the 1851 and 1871 censuses (latter at Bryn Melyn) there is an  adjacent(ish) property called Cefn Rhydd(or Rhudd),with the same Hughes family on both occasions.Caaerddinen is at postcode LL15 2LH.
