Thanks for the feedback
I've already excluded the one in Caernarfonshire just doesn't fit - that one was
in and out of prison as well when my guy was free!
The Mar Qtr 1855 certainly looks like one.
I have traced him from 1871 to 1911 but there is no sign of him in 1861 in the areas
around Henllys which is where I expect him to be.
Thanks again for you time

Second go at sending this... the list doesn't like my Yahoo postings unless in plain
text for some reason so trying plain text and my gmail.
1871 census - there is a Methusalem Roberts in Caernarvonshire in this census, but I doubt
if he is "yours" as a Methusalem Roberts was birth registered in that country in
1858 which fits with the age given in the census. (aged 13 in the census which fits 1858
but not the Aberystwyth birth of 1855)
HOWEVER, there is a Methusalem Roberts birth registered in the Aberystwyth area for March
If you get yourself a copy then you will have mothers and/or fathers name and address and
they might give you a lead for the family whereabouts in the 1861 and the 1871 census.
