My index gives the marriage of Henry Flower and Ann White 07/12/1824 at
There are also marriages for a Thomas White 22/11/1816 to Elizabeth Jones at
Llanbadarn Fawr and
George White 24/11/1824 to Margaret Tutor at Llanbadarn Fawr.
I have no proof that these three Whites are related, but it certainly seems
a possibility..perhaps if you obtained copies of their parish register
marriage entries you might find they appeared as each other's witnesses. I
am also wondering if Margaret should perhaps be a Tudor......it would be
interesting to know if she actually signed, or whether the spelling of her
surname was the rector's version. There do not seem to be any other Tutor
or Tudor marriages taking place in Cardiganshire 1813-37.
There must have been more Flower families than I imagined.....there was an
excellent painter in Leicestershire of that surname....
I have a book containing one of his illustrations of a home connected to my
own family research.

Have you allowed for the 1841's peculiarity of round down ages to the
nearest 5? Have you found the family in 1851? Keep in mind the IGI
is neither complete nor wholly accurate, esp if the entry is a patron
submission. Also children weren't always baptised as babes, some
could be a lot older but the IGI doesn't usually include the age of an
older child but might include the DoB if it's in the register.
Your man could have worked the waterways between Nottingham and
Birmingham. There are many canals in the latter.
The marriage could have taken place in Aberystwyth because Ann was in
service there and marrying from her employer's home could have been
financially beneficial. Or his or her parents objected (or both) so
