Should  Welsh Patronymics be considered regarding his name?.

A Clergyman telling such a wopper when he married.

So  if he was baptized 1887 then he was 31 not 24 when he married, his wife was only 19.

Would the records of St David's College have more information?.

John Allen's age wobbles about all over the show (as does wife Sarah's), but he's pretty consistent with occupation as a Fitter, Iron works - though in 1895 described as a Hostler.

1861: 23 Hall St, Aberdare, Glam. Age  32, married ( to Margaret nee Wigley) Fitter, b Blaby, Leicestershire.
1871: 4 Waterloo Place, Aberdare, Glam. Age 45, widower, Fitter, b Blaby, Leicestershire.
1881: 7 Saxon St,  Llantwit Fardre, Pontypridd, age 47, Fitter, Park Iron Works, b Town, Leicestershire. Sarah Ann is 37, b Brynamman, Carmarthenshire
1890: 23 Wine St Pontlottyn, Gelligaer, Fitter (baptism son Oliver)
1891: 23 Wine St, Pontlottyn, Gelligaer, age 60, time Labourer Iron Works b Leicester, Leicestershire. Sarah 44, b Brynmawr, Breconshire
1895: 23 Wine St,     Pontlottyn, Hostler ( baptism of son Charles) Wesley)
1901: 21 Wine St, age 76,( no occupation)  b Blaby, Leicestershire. Sarah A is 50, b Brynmawr, Brecknock

I suppose he could have been a Special Constable? But given Sydney's notable conversion of his age and DoB, and alternative PoB - one wonders...

Interestingly, the same ALLEN family pop up in this 2020 post!
