There's a Daniel Joseph married to a Jane living in Merthyr in 1851, and a John Hanrahan married to an Ann. Not worked out which David Roderick it is yet, though.

There's a possible for Sarah in Cadoxton in 1841, address Onlion (would that be the same place as Onlwyn where Gwilym and Sarah are in 1851?):
Jonah(?) David 35 Shoem N
Gwenllian Do 35 N
Sarah Do 10 N
Gwenllian Do 5 N
John Do 1 Y

Thanks Kite - I imagine Onlion is the same as Onllym (or any of the various other ways I've seen it spelled. I'll order the marriage cert - if that is them then Sarah would have been five or six months pregnant at the time of the marriage, which sounds about usual for my lot

Do you think they would have got married in Merthyr Tydfil district if they both lived in Cadoxton, though? Maybe we should just check for any other possible marriages before you order it.

I don't know exactly where the boundaries of the reg districts are, but Sarah was born in Cray, which is nearer to MT than to Neath, so maybe they married there and moved to Cadoxton after the marriage?

Could be, if that isn't her in 1841. I was going to look for that 1841 family in 1851 next...

Can't see them in 1851, but if I've found the right Onllwyn on the map, it's not that far from Merthyr anyway. I thought it would be very near to Neath.
