Looking for info on my Great Grandparents William Lewis (1896) and Mary Ann Williams (1905) from Llangendeirne. Their marriage certificate said William lived in Brynbach, Llangendeirne but can't find a 1911 census for this property. Also Mary Ann lived in Ty Newydd, Four Roads but unable to find 1901 census.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you both.

Kath:I'm not sure if these are the correct census as I don't recognise the names but they could have moved to Brynbach after the 1911 census.

Alviegal: I have the 1911 census but the 1901 doesn't look like it's for Ty Newydd.
