Ref your message posted Feb 19 2002, Nicholas Ace , born in 1826,was my great-grandfather. He married Mary Judd from Port Talbot on 4 May 1851. I believe they then set up home in Port Talbot. Certainly, my family come from Port Talbot.
I am also researching Nicholas's parents, Samuel and Sarah Ace. As you may have discovered there were at least 3 couples bearing those names in or around Gower in the 1820s.
I believe that I have now discovered the correct Samuel Ace. He was baptised at Porteynon on 8 Jan 1790 and married Sarah Bowen on 2 Feb 1815 at Llanrhidian.
They later lived at Mumbles/Oystermouth, where he was a mariner. The 1841 Census shows them living at 62 Clements Row Mumbles, with 3 of their children, incl. Nicholas, then 14.
Your Ace parent must be my 1st cousin.
Hope the above helps.
