George Careswell (1811 - 1883) was listed in 1851 as a proprietor of

first wife was Jane Bevan, born in Haverfordwest and whom he married in
September 1833 at Lanbadarn Mawr . After her death in 1852 he married

In 1861 George was in charge of the Assembly Rooms in Church Street when

the Assembly Rooms. The 1871 Census lists him at 60 years old as agent
for Allsop & Sons, Brewers, of Burton on Trent. There is no record of
his death locally but his first wife was buried in the old St Mary's
I got all this from "Footprints on the Sands of Time" by Ealwyn
Benjamin. I hope it is some help.
