The Reverend Timothy Thomas was my 4th great-grandfather. He was born on 12th March 1720 in Ty-Hen, Caio, Carmarthenshire and died on 12th November 1768.
**
His first wife was said to be "native of Llanllwnni , who died within a year, and who bore him a daughter, who married Rees Saunders, Bryn, Llanllwnni, uncle of David Saunders."
**
His second wife (who was my 4th great-grandmother) was supposedly born in 1733 'of Aberduar." She presented Timothy with five sons and lived until 20th April 1822. "In 1753 a daughter of Williams of Trebŵl and grand-daughter of the family of Maes-isaf whither he went to live."
**
 I'm hoping we can discover more about the lady who died 20th April 1822.
Thanks
Richard

There's a marriage in Pencarreg 14 July 1769 for Rees Sanders of Llanllwni & Hannah Thomas of Pencarreg, witnesses Zacharias Thomas & David Saunders, all signed.

The marriage bonds at NLW include one from Nov 14 1753 for Timothy Thomas of Pencarreg & Elinor Williams of Pencarreg. Register isn't online so can't check witnesses.

Thank you Osprey.
Did you mean 14 July 1769 (not 1869) for the marriage of Rees Saunders and Hannah Thomas?

The 14 November 1753 date would fit into our time frame.
If we could find a will for Rev. Timothy Thomas, it would certainly help our cause.

oops, I did indeed!  :-[

I've checked the NLW & the wills on Ancestry with no success.

Thanks for trying.
The 20th April 1822 death date came from Robert Moseley Bryce Thomas with a question mark.
So it would have been Elinor Thomas dying on that date and I am guessing that she would still have been living in Carmarthenshire close to Pencarreg.

The name Elinor appears quite frequently in our Welsh Thomas family.
