The best match in 1851 for Ann doesn't have a William brother - but it
is possible he was born after the census.
However the father is David not Daniel.
Are you positive about the name David - as I have misread a badly
written David for Daniel in the past.
meanwhile - there is another possible for William in 1861 - did you see
that one too?. I think I have his family in 1851 - unfotunately his
father , a mariner, is not at home.
I can sent you the census page for you to see - as his wife has family
in the household we can see her maiden name was Williams - and there is
a possible for a Marriage shown on FreeBMD.
No time to go into details now - will get back to you tomorrow of list.
I am sending you the 1851 census page off-list.

Dear List, My cousin Juliet who is not a subscriber to the list would
grateful for any help with this query.
Her Grandfather was William Griffiths who died in Cornwall in 1934 aged 85.
In 1901 and 1891 censuses he is shown as a Bank Manager living in Llanelli and
his place of birth was Cardigan.
In 1884 he married at Pembrey Church,his age was 33. At this time he was a
boarder at the Ashburnham Hotel in Pembrey and was a Bank Clerk. On his Marriage
Certificate his father is named as Daniel Griffiths, occupation Gentleman.
Ceredigion Archives may have found him in 1871 when William Griffiths is a
boarder at 32,St Mary Street, Cardigan aged 19 and a General Clerk in an
In 1861 he could be a boarder aged 10 living at Green Street in Cardigan. At the
same address is an Ann Griffiths aged 12, both are listed as boarders and
scholars. There are also older boarders listed.
Mary Walker is named as the Head of the Household,her occupation is that of Inn
Keeper, she is a widow and born in Cardiganshire.
There is a clear difference between the place of birth for Mary Walker, born in
Cardiganshire and the two Griffiths children born in Cardigan.
Juliet and I have visited the Family History Centre in Islington many times and
have found at least 5 incorrect Birth Certificates for William Griffiths,
(haven't looked for Ann because she has only just turned up)
Ceredigion Archives have no deaths/burials in Cardigan for a Daniel Griffiths.
Please does anyone have any suggestions as to where we can look next. Did part
of Cardigan become part of Pembs or the reverse?
Is there someone with access to the 1851 census who could possibly see if they
could find them at home. If they were born in Cardigan, can anyone think of a
reason why they were boarders when they were scholars, unless he/they were
