Thank you Joy, Jill, Achwr, and Bettye for your responses.
I found a Moses John paying a land tax redemption to a Rev. John Jordan,
proprietor, so Achwr is probably right that he only served as a witness to
the marriage. Unfortunately, Moses John and David Meyrick died before the
1841 census, and the only other Meyrick at Llanelly is an Anne Meyrick who
was a 56-year old labourer. Probably not a relation to Sir Thomas. Bettye
suggested a look at the wills, and I will do that when the library is back
Many good wishes to you-all.

I have checked in the index of thebook by Michael McGarvie, FSA - The
Meyricks of Bush.There is no mention of a David Meyric/Meyrick in the
late 18th and early 19th centuries.However the book concentrates on the
Pembrokeshire Meyricks and the index doesn't list Llanelly.
Interestingly the Sir Thomas Meyrick 1899-1983 who owned many of the
properties in Pembroke Dock, including the one rented by your ancestor,
was succeeded by his son Sir David Meyrickand he is the only David
listed in the index so it would appear that David is not a family name
handed down the generations.
