Edward's Baptism:

On the 1851 census, Edward claims to have been born in Guilsfield; on the 1861 census, that he was born in Meivod.
These two villages are separated by no more than 5 miles, with the hill and woods of Broniarth roughly midway.

Google map showing Meifod, Montgomeryshire Google map showing Meifod, Montgomeryshire.
So far, we have found two possible contenders for Edward's baptism; both in Meivod, Montgomery.
2nd May 1794 to parents, Edward and Margaret, of Broniarth,
or,
23rd July 1797 to parents, Richard and Elizabeth, of Meivod.
The first might seem more likely on the grounds that forenames often run in families. No Richards appear in 'our' Edward's offspring, but he does name one of his sons, Edward.
On the other hand, at the registration of his death, in 1873, his age is stated as 76, which would fit better with the second possibility.

 

Edward's Marriage:
(from a transcript of the marriage register for St Aelhaiarn, Guilsfield, Montgomeryshire.)
