Thank you for your e-mail. Achwr kindly sent me the Clarbeston information
I'm trying to prove that this Rebecca / Rebecka Bowen was mine! I think the
only way I can make myself 100% sure, is to seek a copy of the original
marriage record from Haverfordwest Records Office (although this too may not
be 100% conclusive!).
Lettice Bowen, Ebenezer Gibbon and Caleb Evans are a mystery to me!?!?!? I
have been told that my Lettice married Caleb Evans? So, I think again the
only way forward is to see the originals.
As for Mary, well although she would have been a Clarbeston girl, I think
she must have married in a neighbouring parish?
Thanks again Gerry and thanks again to Achwr!
Kind regards, Sarah in Northumberland.

Is this enough confirmation of the first?:
John Bowen married Rebecca Bowen April 20th 1819 Clarbeston
A Caleb Evans of Llawhaden married Anne Sermon(?) March 5 1819 Clarbeston
A Lettice Bowen married Ebenezer Gibbon June 15 1824 Clarbeston
No Mary Bowen or William Morris married in Clarbeston in the period
