I am looking for birth records for William Griffiths (my Step-grandfathers, grandfather) I know he existed and was in Swansea working as a chemist in 1851 but he was born in Newport Pembrokeshire in 1820 according to all the census records post 1851 but prior to that I cannot find any records whatsoever. I would like to know where he was baptised and his parents names. would I be right in thinking that these records do not exist. Has anyone else had problems finding birth records for Newport at this time
