You would need to order a copy of the marriage certificate to get that but first have you found the marriage registration in 1853?

If not then we are a bit stuck.  Also the possibility they never actually married. 

When was their first child born?

Are the Thomas's in Presteigne in 1851 Census?

May I ask if you dont have the M//C you know her Father was Samuel?

Having said that will go with Samuel/Elizabeth.

1851 Samuel is born c 1796 Llangunllo on Anc. (Llangynllo)

F/S has a Samuel Bapt 18 Sep 1796 Llangynllo but the entry is on FindMyPast which I dont have access to.

Trees have Elizabeth Mother as Davies and there and there is a  Marriage ;13/10/1823 on F/S


1841 Census we have;
Samuel Thomas   45 Inkeeper
Elizabeth Thomas 35
John Thomas   15 Tailors Appr
Samuel Thomas   15 Bakers Appr
William Thomas   13
George Thomas   8

No Elizabeth there. 

Someone with more expertise in Welsh research may be able to help you more :)

Hi
Thank you for the replies. Details that I do know are that the family moved from Wales to Aloa , Scotland where my grt grt grandfather Walter Lewis was born . The family later moved to Hackney.
I believe I got the information about her parents from find my past and family search but that was a long time ago ---- it was a family line that I had just put to one side as I kept hitting brick walls with regards William Lewis's parentage etc

Hi
Thank you for you help and reply ----- I wonder what the reason was for father and son to die so close together . It could be expected of the father but for the son to pass away several days later has got me thinking of reason's . Was it due to illness or did he perhaps take his own life due to grief .
Regards
Richie

From the will of the father the son was seriously ill in bed.
If you have access to Ancestry you can read the will online
