They all lived in Pembrokeshire!
Are the transcribers confused with the town of Fishguard?
The transcribers may not work in the UK and have local geographical knowledge.

The Oxford Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland doesn't have an entry for Fishguard?
Britishsurnames.co.uk also draws a blank?
SurnameDB also draws a blank.
