 Capel Ficer, Llandybie

there was a Capel Ficer in or near Llandybie.
It was mentioned as a school run by Morgan Lake in some historic information
There was a Capel Ficer thatched cottage
Does anyone know where this was in or near Llandybie please?

There was a Waun y Ficer - see https://historicplacenames.rcahmw.gov.uk/placenames/recordedname/d9d43ed2-dc1c-4c3e-b8b1-73b709697e87  if you go to full screen and enlarge

In 1841 William Evans aged 30 and wife Elinor aged 25 & 2 children were living at Waunficer, which was about 5 schedules on from The Red Lion Llandybie.

There was a Mary Davies baptised 1838 at Llandybie dau of William & Anne Davies of Capel Vicar

In 1911 Capel Vicar Lettice Gabriel born Llandebie 1844 was living there with her son. From the houses around it, the location seems very similar to Waun y Ficer above. On Google maps could be the house marked 54 Llandeilo Rd (though may not be same original building) -  https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Llandyb%C3%AFe/51.8254589,-4.0100286/@51.8250091,-4.0112944,604m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m9!4m8!1m5!1m1!1s0x486ef84cea7251b1:0x1de7337bf31a09ed!2m2!1d-4.007789!2d51.8208259!1m0!3e0

Thank you so much
Your reply has been really helpful. I have since found an older map which shows Capel Vicar, which as you say is just opposite the turning to Pentre Gwenlais

Now I'm looking for Kilyrhedin in the parish of Llandebie.
Taken from a baptism in 1807.
William and Elizabeth Jones lived there
Thank you

Here's CILYRHEDYN on the 1841 census HO107 Piece number   1384 Book number 12 Folio number 28 Page number 4 where Evan Morgan farmer born 1806 is living with Margaret Bowen (b.1801)  servant and John Francis Ag Lab aged 20.

Cilyrhedyn (or Cilrhedyn) is between Cilfachywen and Cwmycadno and is here on the map - at Saron just outside  Llandybie  - zoom in on
