Do you think that this is a reference to Cardigan town or the whole county of
Cardiganshire? That is often not clear in census references. Any other clues as to the
specific location (like a farm name, perhaps?). The names are so popular/common we'll
probably need more info to try to pin it down more.

My 4 x great grandparents were John and Eleanor THOMAS found in the 1841 and
1851 censuses at Caerleon, Monmouthshire. In the 1851 census it shows their
birthplace as Cardigan.
It would appear that their daughter Ann who married John Cox at Caerleon on
6 December 1824 was born in Cardigan, although she died before the 1851
census. Linking in with her siblings, it suggests the family moved from
Cardigan to Caerleon around 1809-1810 when ann would have been just 3 or 4
She died at the age of 39, very soon after her daughter Eliza Jane COX was
born in the Jul-Sept qtr of 1845.
So far I’ve had no success in finding out what Eleanor’s maiden name was,
and all their children were born before civil registration began, so there
are no birth certificates that would give the answer.
Is anyone else researching this THOMAS family that could shed light on the
background of John and Eleanor please?
Very many thanks and best wishes to all,
