I can see David, Anne and family as Bettye says in 1881.
However, in 1871 they are shown as living in Ysguborwen, Bridell. David is
an agricultural labourer aged 40 and shown as born in Bridell. Anne is now
38 and born Eglwyswrw and the children at home are John, aged 8, born
Bridell., Lydia, aged 4, born Llanfairnantgwyn and Daniel, aged 2 born
If the above is correct and David was actually born in Bridell not
Llanfairnantgwyn then the 1861 census shows living at Hencwmbettws,
Bridell........Daniel Edwards, Head aged 53, Labourer, born (Llandigwy),
possibly Llandygwydd, Cardiganshire. Wife Anne aged 54, born Bridell.
David, son, age 30, Labourer, born Bridell and another two sons, James aged
14 and Thomas aged 12 both born in Bridell. Thomas is shown as an invalid.
Working back through the census, David is shown on the 1841 aged 11, at home
in Bridell in the same house with his mother Anne. Anne is shown as an
agricultural labourers wife. Also in house are John aged 9, Elizabeth aged
7 and William I think also aged 7 the age is not clear so I am not sure.
A Daniel Edward married Anne Bowen in Bridell on the 3rd December 1829.
I hope this helps

they later moved to Bridell, they had 3 children Daniel, Anne, and
