Thanks for that. I should have given that census, as that is the last I can see of John Jones [in 1871] the 1881 may show his wife. She is a widow, from Trelech and has a grand-daughter named Susaneny which I assume is Susannah or a pet form of this. John James Jones who is either Esther's son or grandson, has a daughter named Susannah  so the Esther in 1881 may well be my

Thank you Anthony, but I am unable to get there. I live outside Wales these days.

Yes there is a David. Born ca 1845.  And yes to your earlier message I believe that may well be the Esther I need.

Cannot see a David in either the '51 (William, Francis, Henry) or '61 (William, Henry, John) Census.

I have a Jones line from Mydrim also! If I'm correct, I am descended from William JONES (native of Llangathen) and Mary LEWIS (native of Mydrim) married in Mydrim 13 Apr 1758, via their son Theophilus.
