Notes

  • Thomas is enumerated in the 1841 census of Pembrokeshire County,Wales.  It is not clear is Esther Eynon is his wife or perhaps asister Esther.  An older Elizabeth Morgan is only about 15 years olderthan Thomas and Elizabeth, with a 6-year-old girl of the same lastname, and a 15-year-old Elizabeth Evans.  From what we know about hiswife, it appears that Esther is another Eynon family members, not hiswife.
