I'm not sure what information you are seeking as from your e-mail it
seems you already have 1841 & 1851 census details and as you mention
William as a schollmaster I presume you have the 1861 detils as well.
If William had married before then he should be shown as a widower in
the parish register entry for his marriage to Catherine Rowlands on
April 9 1837.
A printout of the parish register should be available from the
Haverfordwest Record Office for about £1.
Have you seen any of the entries in Richard Rose's "Pembroke people"?
You will find there details from the will of Ann Thomson,widow.
She was the sister of George Rowlands and the aunt of Catherine Thomas ,
wife of William Thomas to whom she left £19 19s and in a codicil made on
Sept 12 1846 she left her a further £100.
There is quite a lot of family information given.
Let me know off-list if you haven't seen it, and can't access it
anywhere and I can give you some more detail.

I was wondering if anyone might have some information on my ggg
grandfather William [Frederick? - family tradition insists this was his
middle name and it's certainly a common combination in our family]
Thomas. What I have found in my research (and please take with a pinch
of salt because it may not be 100%) is as follows:
William was born in Lamphey c.1810/11. [Family tradion has him "of
He married Catherine [Carol? - ditto] Rowlands (b.1810/11ish in
Pembroke St.Michaels) [also "of St. Davids] in Haverfordwest St.
By the 1841 census, they were living in Pembroke St Michaels, and
William is a carpenter/joiner.
By the 1851 census, they had moved to Nantgarw, Eglwysilan, Glamorgan
and Willam was still a carpenter/joiner, although he later became a
George Samuel, b.1/12/1840 Pembroke St Michaels
Charles, b.c1843 Pembroke St Michaels
Mary Ann, b.c1845 Pembroke St Michaels
John, b.c1847 Pembroke St Michaels
Edward, b.c1849 Pembroke St Michaels
William Frederick, b.c1851 Nantgarw
There are three further family traditions that may be of interest.
Firstly, for some reason the marriage was disapproved of and Catherine
was disowned by her family. Second, William was allegedly married to a
"belgian baroness" before Catherine. Finally, a previous researcher
dug up a son called James from I know not where as I haven't found any
reference to him other than hers.
