A David Evan who signed with a cross married Elizabeth Lewis who also signed
with a cross, by Licence, at Clydey June 17, 1767. There must have been
property involved for there to have been a licence.
From the dates you have given, David Evans would have been born 1720
am sure you won't be too thrilled to know that the nearest record shows:
1718 Nov. 1 ...........EVAN = (...............) EVAN
Elizabeth Lewis, if it is she, was born 1727 and would be a 40 years old
bride....so probably did not have many children.
Oct. 11 1718 (..........)LEWIS m. Margaret(?) David
Oct. 24, 1723 Thomas LEWIS m. Elizabetha EVAN.
I don't recall that place name in Clydey but it should appear on the 1786
Land Tax...and you should be able to chart the family name pattern through
the occupiers over the year until 1831 when Land Tax records ended.
