I'm also descended from Mainwarings from the Llandybie/Llannon district. I'm
sure we're related somehow although how far back goodness knows as there are
a surprisingly large number of Manwarings (I've omitted the first 'i'
deliberately) in the area on the 19th century censuses. My Manwaring
ancestor is a Noah Manwaring (illeg) from Felinfach on the Llandybie/Llannon
border. His father was Philip (E)Manuel, a miller. There is a website
devoted to the study of the Mainwaring surname which suggests that it
originated in the North Midlands (Cheshire?) area. I'll do some googling to
find it again.

I know from the marriage cert that the top man John D's father is Timothy
David, a smith, but nothing more about him is certain.
I am very interested in your Carmarthen families as my family lived near
Felindre and Llanon and Llandybie. They were Mainwarings who lived at
Penybank, Llandybie. I believe the farm was in the hands of Jones. She
would have been Anne Jones who married an Isaac Mainwaring in 1847-8.
Do you have any knowledge of them?
