IF you are assuming that because he was baptised
"son of David Evans and Rachel Morgans"
you need to be careful.
In an Anglican register that would be a fair assumption, but in some
non-conformist chapels there was a tradition of recording the (married)
mother by her maiden name so it wouldn't necessarily be an indication that
they weren't married; you need to look at other entries to see if they are
all like that.
Also, if it is a non-conformist baptism, don't assume that they must have
married in a non-nonformist chapel (and hence jump to conclusions because
you can't find such a marriage); around that time people often married in an
anglican church where the ceremony also served as a civil marriage. I have
two pairs of 'chapel' 2.gt-grand-parents that married 'church'.

Subject: [Dyfed] When married?
My g.grandfather David John Evans was born in 1852. He was brought up
mother's sister and husband (uncle and aunt)
Would it be fair to assume that his parents David Evans and Rachel Morgans
were NOT married when he was born?
They would have been married around the Lampeter area and I am just trying
to narrow down the search.
