On all census it has her birth as Dynas/Dinas Glamorgan


The "Gweny/Gwenllian" I have tracked has Places of Birth -
1851 - "Glamorgan, Dinas" (HO107  2454  112  22)
1861 - "Glamorgan, Eglwysilan" (RG09  4028  47  19)
1871 - "Dynas" - the transcribed record (FindMyPast) has "Pembrokeshire" as County?? (RG10  5366
36  21)

Is this "your" Gwenllian Williams?

Having ceased my Ancestry subscription I cannot check but your list does look accurate for Gwenllian.   For 1871,  she was living in Cabalfa, Cardiff.
     Pembroke is the surprise.   Could have been an error in translation as my grandfather's family were all welsh speakers, but that is just a thought.
     
    Yes heddwch I have the marriage in St Ilan.   Still think her baptism will be a mystery as my grandfathers family were all chapel, notoriously difficult to find at the time.  Most of her decendants are buried at Whitecross Eglwysilan. 
    Thank you

Is this "your" Gwenllian Williams?

The 1871 image doesn't have a county listed. Suspect Find My Past transcribers have just picked the Dinas In Pembrokeshire from their options of locations without the benefit of local knowledge!

That's how I interpreted the inclusion of a County in the absence of an entry by the Enumerator.
