Although Bettws was in the Registar's District of Llandybie, the census
entries from 1841 onwards are recorded under Bettws Parish. I searched for
Mary in 1861 using Bettws as her place of birth, rather than the place that
I expected to find her - which I left open-ended.
Broadening the search to a date of birth of 1860 +/- 5years, there are 6
candidates, but the closest date of birth is 1858. None of these are
recorded as Mary Ann(e) - although that's not always significant. Mary's
place of birth may have been recorded as Llandilofawr or Llandilo in 1861.
Unfortunately, these were sometimes used interchangeably by people who were
actually born in Bettws :-(
